    Is the water taxi between the Wilderness Lodge and the Contemporary Resort running? Thanks

    Hey there, Joann! Welcome to planDisney where talking about the Walt Disney World Resort is our favorite thing to do!

    Joann, your question is close to my heart because my family and I recently came back from a trip where we stayed at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and enjoyed dinner at California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    In previous years, we always took advantage of the water taxi running between these two resorts. Unfortunately this boat service is no longer available. My family and I took the boat service to Magic Kingdom Park and then used the walkway to reach Disney's Contemporary Resort. You could also transfer to a monorail at this point. Julie, if you're rushing to make an advanced dining reservation, you may want to consider a ride share service like uber or lyft (for a fee).

    Joann, while I'm sure this is not the news you were wishing to hear, I do hope it's helpful in planning. If you have any extra time at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, make sure to inquire with the front desk Cast Members about the hidden Mickey scavenger hunts available (and any specialty scavenger hunts). This is the perfect activity to see the Disney details of this property and take a break from the Florida sun.

    Wishing you a pixie dusted stay,
