    We will be staying at the Wilderness Lodge for our upcoming trip in October. I'm wondering how much time to allow for the ferry ride from our resort to the Magic Kingdom? Also, how early should we arrive at MK for entry to MNSSHP?


    Fall brings cooler weather to Disney and what a wonderful atmosphere in which to enjoy it at Wilderness Lodge. The ferry ride from the dock takes about 15 minutes to get to Magic Kingdom. Give yourself a good 5 to 10 minutes to walk from your room down to the dock that will have you winding through the woods. 

    The official entrance time for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is 7:00 p.m. However, I have arrived as early as 4:30 and been allowed in, but I think it depends on the crowds. There's no hurt in arriving early but just keep your expectations in check if you are asked to wait until the official opening. 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
