    are the water taxis still running Ft. Wilderness to Wilderness Lodge?

    Hi Sarah!

    Welcome! and thank you for sending this question.

    I must confess that the boat ride between Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort (also calling at Disney's Contemporary Resort) was one of my favourite ways to spend a relaxing afternoon!  I often stay at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and enjoyed that boat ride just for the sake of the ride.  Unfortunately, all water taxis between Disney Resort hotels are currently suspended.  However, you can take the boat to Magic Kingdom Park, then transfer to another boat back to Disney Wilderness Lodge, which is an equally relaxing experience.  I love sailing Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake!   If you wish to travel to any other Disney Resort hotels from Disney's Fort Wilderness you need to take a bus to any theme park or Disney Springs, and then transfer to a Resort hotel bus from there.  

    If you would like to make a reservation for Whispering Canyon Cafe, these are now available online, up to 60 days in advance.

    During the phased re-opening of Walt Disney World, we may need a little more considered and careful planning, but our vacations to Walt Disney World Resort can still be a magical experience.  Please read this information about Returning to a World of Magic, and Disney Resort Hotels: Know Before You Go, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official updates as they are announced.

    We know you have many questions about what this all means for your upcoming visit.  Please know we are working to be able to answer your questions as quickly as possible, and we look forward to providing an update as soon as we have more information to share.  Come back and ask as many questions as you like!  We are always happy to help you plan your vacation.
