    Hello! We have an upcoming trip staying at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. I know there’s a boat that can take us to Magic Kingdom from there, but what’s the best way to get to Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios?

    Hi Lesley,
    Thank you for making planDisney a part of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Soon you will be surrounded by the sounds of Copland, the sight of Fire Rock Geyser, and the fresh scent of pine at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. The wow factor hits as soon as you enter the impressive lobby with its rustic grandeur and 82-foot working fireplace. It will be hard to leave your magical home on your park days, but adventure awaits you in each of the Disney theme parks!

    One of the biggest perks of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is the complimentary transportation around Walt Disney World Resort. On your journey from Wilderness Lodge to Magic Kingdom park, the water taxi will take you through Bay Lake and into Seven Seas Lagoon via a water bridge. Yes, you read that right, water bridges are rare but one of the innovative ways Walt Disney World imagineers created solutions to transportation challenges across the resort.

    The best way to access Disney's Animal Kingdom park, Disney's Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Disney Springs is via a Walt Disney World Resort bus. The bus stop at Wilderness Lodge can be accessed via the walking path between the main lobby and the Boulder Ridge Villas

    Another perk of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is the 30-minute early entry at all four theme parks, every day. When taking advantage of this offering, I encourage you to be at the bus stop 45-60 minutes before your desired arrival time. Buses come approximately every twenty minutes.

    During your stay at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, be sure to enjoy the Electrical Water Pageant, which was recently enhanced as part of The World's Most Magical Celebration. You can find the Pageant's nightly schedule in the My Disney Experience mobile app by searching "pageant" in the app's search feature. Click "Add to My Day" to add the event to your "My Day" schedule so you won't forget!  I highly recommend the views and smoothies from Geyser Point Bar and Grill.   

    My excitement for your upcoming trip is bubbling like a geyser, Lesley. Please return to planDisney soon, I'd love to connect with you again!

    Choose magic,
