BREAKING: A HUGE Disney World Hotel Transportation Perk Is Returning!

There’s a lot to love about Disney World hotels.

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort

They allow you specific perks like Early Theme Park Entry and free transportation, they are each uniquely themed, and they have different food and restaurants. But now we’ve got news about a huge transportation perk that is finally back in Disney World!

Disney World announced the boats that run between three hotels will return as of October 1st! This “blue route” can take you between Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

The route is available each day starting at 3PM. This is a great option if you’re staying at one of these hotels and looking to check out the atmosphere or dining options at the other two.

If you want to travel between these three resorts in the morning, you can transfer transportation at Magic Kingdom. It’s an extra step, but it is still a possibility. We’ll let you know if Disney expands these hours in the future.


One important thing to note — the boat route from Fort Wilderness to Magic Kingdom and Wilderness Lodge to Magic Kingdom will remain separate from the “blue route.” Also, it is likely Disney will keep the bus route to Magic Kingdom at these resorts.

Route to Magic Kingdom

At Fort Wilderness, Trail’s End recently reopened with some huge changes. You can also grab a drink and a quick bite at Crockett’s Tavern or get dinner and a show at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue! There are also some fun activities like Chip ‘N Dale’s Campfire Sing-A-Long (which is free!).

Over at Wilderness Lodge, a fan favorite is Whispering Canyon Cafe. This is a resort that is fun to explore and super peaceful to take a stroll around.

And finally, the Contemporary is home to many of our favorite restaurants including California Grill and Steakhouse 71. It also has its own Joffrey’s Coffee location at Contemporary Grounds and Contempo Cafe is a solid quick service spot that debuted a new menu not long ago.
