    Thank you Doug! Your reply is very helpful. We have dining reservations at Wilderness Lodge. After our meal, we want to head over to Fort Wilderness. How is the best way to get there? Is it possible to use the ferry to go between the two? Thanks!


    Yes, the best way for you to get from Disney's Wilderness Lodge to Fort Wilderness is to take the ferry boat from the dock at Wilderness Lodge to the marina at Fort Wilderness. The boats are not only convenient, but frankly I love the scenic route. You get such great views of Bay Lake, and the ride is faster than you would expect. 

    When you are done exploring at Fort Wilderness, you likely will find your fastest way to your home resort is to get back on that boat, headed to the Magic Kingdom Park. From there you can catch any of a variety of transportation options to deliver you to your home in the magic. 

    Your sailing time between any of these three destinations should be about 10-15 minutes between stops. However, remember that boats are not always just sitting there at the dock waiting for you, and the next boat may not be headed in your preferred direction. So, budget in time, and of course ask the Cast Members that help you board if you are headed in the right direction. The boats and lines at the dock are marked clearly, but they can confirm your best option!

    Please feel free to send me any follow-up questions, and I would be glad to help you plan out your adventures further!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
