    Any word on when the blue flag boats on Bay Lake will start up again? We're staying at Bay Lake Tower in May and trying to decide if it makes sense to make a reservation at Whispering Canyon. (The easy transportation option would help with that!)

    Hey Howdy Hey, John!

    Welcome Home and yeehaw! I am so excited that you stopped by planDisney with your question.  Our family loves Whispering Canyon Cafe and so getting a chance to have a delicious meal fit for a cowboy or cowgirl sure puts a giddy-up in our vacation. Now, John, this fun family restaurant might have "whispering" in its name, but let's be honest. There's no whispering happening there, especially if you ask for ketchup! 

    Now, John, I called Disney Vacation Club Member Services and right now, there is no word on when the watercraft on Bay Lake will start up again.  To get to Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge from Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, I recommend taking the Monorail or bus to Magic Kingdom Park. From there, you can transfer to the watercraft from the dock in front of the Magic Kingdom Park to Disney's Wilderness Lodge for your Whispering Canyon Cafe reservation. This way, you'll be able to enjoy a lovely sail and be able to get to your dining reservation.   After your meal, you can return home via the watercraft back to the dock in front of Magic Kingdom Park and take the Monorail or bus back to Bay Lake Tower.

    I hope this helps you, John! If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, stop back and see me here because you've got a friend in me!

    Happy Trails,
