    Are the water taxis running between contemporary and wilderness lodge

    Ahoy, Dawn, and welcome aboard planDisney! You're at Walt Disney World Resort as we speak, so I'm sending pixie dust and hoping your visit is off to a magical "Once upon a time." Disney transportation options are plentiful and convenient, so let's look at ways to travel while you're here.

    There are several ways to travel between Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Wilderness Lodge since both are part of the Magic Kingdom Area Resorts. Your options will vary depending on the time of day you're on the go, so let's dive in. 

    If you travel between these resorts between 3:00 PM and 10:45 PM, the water taxis should run during those hours. Look for signs indicating the blue flag line, and you'll be cruising along! I suggest double-checking those operating hours when you arrive since they are subject to change. 

    Before 3:00 PM, you can utilize the red flag water taxis between Magic Kingdom Park and Wilderness Lodge. The Contemporary is a quick walk or monorail ride from Magic Kingdom, adding only a few minutes to your travel time. These boats usually run from 7:30 AM to midnight, but I recommend checking the specific hours with any Cast Member.

    Here's a fun fact: your mobile app can double as a Disney GPS! I recently discovered this handy feature, and it's a total game-changer. Simply tap the pin icon at the bottom of the app screen, select 'Transportation' from the dropdown menu above the map, and you're all set to navigate your way around. You can even use this tool within the theme park to find a restaurant or attraction. Since I have trouble knowing my right from my left, this is invaluable!

    Dawn, I hope I've given you some helpful navigation information for your vacation. Feel free to set sail for an adventure at planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
