    Hi, we will be staying at Port Orleans and have a breakfast reservation at Whispering Canyon. What is the best way to get there, from Magic Kingdom? Would it be better to take bus or boat? Trying to figure out best way to get to reservation on time.Thanks!

    Hi there, Ingrid!

    Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney. I'm so excited to hear you'll be dining at Whispering Canyon Cafe - it's one of my family's favorite dining locations! My husband and I love the All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Signature Skillets, while our son prefers a familiar favorite: Mickey-shaped Waffles!

    One of the best parts about Disney's Wilderness Lodge is its proximity to Magic Kingdom Park. That means you have two fantastic complimentary transportation options between the Resort hotel and the theme park: bus or watercraft. Since both options take approximately 10-15 minutes in transit, you can rest assured that either choice will be a good one! My personal preference, in this case, is Disney Water Transportation. Since you can access bus transportation for most other destinations at The Most Magical Place on Earth, why not change it up and take a calming cruise on Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake? Water transportation runs approximately every 15 to 30 minutes, so please ensure you give yourself plenty of time to get to your breakfast reservation. I'd recommend arriving at the water launch at Magic Kingdom Park no later than one hour before your reservation time.

    If you'd prefer a quicker transfer between the theme park and the Resort hotel, you may consider requesting a ride via Minnie Van service. This is a paid personal ride service available through the Lyft app and is useful in situations when you are crunched for time.

    Ingrid, I hope that you find this information helpful and that you have a magical and memorable visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Please feel free to stop by anytime with additional planning questions.

    See ya real soon,
