    We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge in Aug and booked a 1 bdrm Delux Villa how are they and how is the water shuttle to & from Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Nancy!

    You booked my favorite type of room at my favorite resort!  The 1 Bedroom in the Villas at Wilderness Lodge is a great place to stay.  There's a lot of room in the bedroom and the living room, a full kitchen, and a washer and dryer.  The sofa bed in the living room is relatively comfortable.  Be sure to make an advanced dining reservation for the Whispering Canyon Cafe.  It's a great family restaurant that is a lot of fun for the whole family; they also have good food!  If you go, be sure to ask for a bottle of ketchup or insist on getting a large drink!

    The water shuttle to and from the Magic Kingdom is great.  I find the trip at night to be especially magical.  There is also a boat that runs between the Contemporary Resort, the Wilderness Lodge, and Fort Wilderness.  It makes getting to either two resorts easy.  Thus you might want to consider making a dining reservation at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.  The boat from the Wilderness Lodge drops guests off at the marina in the Settlement Area of Fort Wilderness.  Thus Pioneer Hall and the Hoop-Dee-Doo-Musical Revue are only a few minutes away from the boat dock.  If you have never done it before, it is definitely a "must do"!

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
