    I have an upcoming stay at Bay Lake Towers and I saw that the blue launch boat line has recently begun operating again. What are the hours of operation for the "blue flag" resort boats?

    Hi Pamela, welcome to planDisney!

    While waiting on bus transportation from Magic Kingdom Park to my Disney Resort hotel recently, I was hoping my Fairy Godmother would tell me my reservation had been changed to Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort and that I was just a 10-minute walk from "home." My dream becomes your reality this month, Pamela, and I couldn't be more excited for you!

    The "blue route" watercrafts resumed service on October 1, 2023, and transport Guests between Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Wilderness Lodge, and Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. I have Cast Member confirmation that the blue route is currently available to Guests from 3:00 p.m. to 10:45 p.m. each day. These times are subject to change so I encourage you to confirm availability while familiarizing yourself with the resort upon arrival. To access Disney's Wilderness Lodge or Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground before the blue route is available, Pamela, I suggest walking over to Magic Kingdom Park and taking bus transportation to your desired destination.  

    Consider the blue route your personal water taxi to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White, and incredible holiday decorations. Closer to home, be sure to check out the gingerbread display at Disney's Contemporary Resort (on the 4th floor close to the Skyway Bridge) and the seasonal treats from Contempo Café (mobile food and beverage order recommended).    

    Thanks for making planDisney part of your vacation-planning team, Pamela. Hope to see you again real soon!

    Choose magic,
