    Visiting WDW June 5-11 & would like to eat breakfast@Trail's End @ Ft. Wilderness. Staying off property. What's the best way to get to Trail's End? Drive or take WDW transp. We'll be going to MK that day(6/6).


    Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel for our thoughts on your trip!

    You have two choices when it comes to getting to Trail's End:

    1. You can park your car (free by the way) at the overflow parking lot of Fort Wilderness and ride its internal bus (the bus stop is just about 50 yards from the lot) to The Settlement and Trail's End for breakfast.  The transfer will be less than 15 minutes as buses run regularly and the ride is about 5 minutes.  After breakfast, it's a short walk to the pier where you can catch a boat launch to the Magic Kingdom.  At the end of the day, just reverse your steps, taking the boat launch back to the fort, and follow the signs to The Settlement bus stop to hop on the Outpost bus that will get you back to the parking lot.
    2. You can park your car at Ticket & Transportation (and pay for parking) and take the monorail to Magic Kingdom and from there, hop on the boat to Fort Wilderness and walk to The Settlement and Trail's End for breakfast.  After breakfast, just take the boat back to Magic Kingdom.  Keep in mind that the boats only start about 30 minutes before park opening, so if you're planning on an early breakfast, I suggest option #1.  At the end of the day, you'll just take the monorail back to Ticket & Transportation.

    If I were in your shoes, I would choose option #1.  The buses are less glamorous than the monorail, but you'll get a good feel of the fort as you travel.  Plus: parking is free!

    Wishing you 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
