I remember one day at RPR in December they had the gates to the pool area (or OUT of the pool area, to the pathway, depending on what way you're going) closed, so we had to go the long way around to the path. Maybe that's what happened with the HRH gate? That it's not closed, but it *was* closed temporarily?

We were in the east wing, and still found the water taxis to be convenient. Sure, it was a HOT walk from one size of the plaza to the other, vs how "far" west wing people got to walk, but it wasn't that long in distance.

And the day we swam at HRH, we walked over there...it *looks* like a long walk from PBR to HRH, but it really wasn't. And apart from that very very long crosswalk and how people drive on that road, it was pleasant as well. Wish I'd felt up to trying to find that pathway to the walking path!

Thank you so much Bubbas Mom. I've made this into a word document & printed out for our trip. Now if there was only a step by step to the shortcut to Harry Potter!

Is this shortcut still there? We used it two years ago and it was great.

The line at the water taxi was so long when we were there.

Yup. You can still walk through the parking lots.

So, which of the Hotels is the best/easiest to get to Harry Potter? Royal Pacific? How long is the walk from there?

And where to the water taxi's let you out for IoA? I coudn't tell from the map...

Lastly, can you get pizza at Royal Pacific? My brother has intellectual disabilities and is a very picky eater, but a huuuuge fan of pepperoni pizza.

Thanks is advance for any advice!

Disney Fanatics! Married at WDW's Grand Floridian in 2004, have taken our 2 DDs (almost) every year to WDW.

Have sailed 5x before, but sailing DCL for the *first* time in August 2014 on the Fantasy! EXCITED is an understatement!
