Grannyminnie - If you are looking to do something sleighrideish, I would have to recommend the carriage ride at Fort Wilderness. Our driver took us all around the campground and we were able to see many of the Christmas light displays. The guests go all out and it was a lot of fun.

After 5 or 6 trips down last year, I am cutting back this year and will only be visiting during October my favorite time of year. (maybe Christmas too) But ya never know maybe you'll be able to visit sooner.

That's why we Loved the Haunted Halloween Wagon Ride, we went all through FT. Wilderness Campground and all the campsites where decorated for Halloween, it was so much fun. Plus we had the story telling from the driver and added surprise guest that showed up during the ride.

Next Christmas trip we will try either the Carriage Ride or Regular Hay Ride over at the Campground.

Just wanted my 1000th post to go here...only 59 days until I'm back at the lodge and then I probably won't be back for 5 OR 6 years (no Disney trips for a while because we want to have kids and won't take them until they are around 4 or 5)

Congratulations on your 1000th Post. Enjoy your trip in April and PIXIE DUST on the soon to be new additions to the family.

I know many people say wait until your children reach a certain age before taking them to WDW but they will love it no matter the age. For my little ones 2 year old was very MAGICAL.

"IT'S THE BUS, THE BIG BIG BUS!" will alway have a special meaning to my family. At 15 years old my nephew still smiles when we see a Disney Bus and we all say IT'S THE BUS, THE BIG BIG BUS.

We went a year and a half ago when my youngest (twins) were 2 1/2 and they still say "Thats MY disney bus" every time we see a bus!

Wouldn't the sugars from the ice cream be better used early in the day instead of late in the evening?

I totally agree!

My two youngest, my granddaughter & my niece all went for the first time when they were about 18 months. Those are the most magical trips ever!

That's adoreable!!

If it were up to me, we'd get DVC and go every year..maybe I'll eventually talk DH to go back when our kids are around 2 or so.

Sorry if this is a repeat question, but I went back several pages and didn't see a recent post about it ...

When we were there in '06 the bus service from the WL to the MK had been suspended due to rehabbing, but it was my understanding it had been reinstated (as it says on page 1 of this FAQ). But now I'm hearing conflicting info. Can anyone confirm if there is still a direct bus to MK?

TIA!!

The work over at the Magic Kingdom Bus Stops has been completed for some time now, the direct bus is running between the Lodge and Magic Kingdom as per page 1.

Do you mind me asking who or where you are receiving the conflicting reports from?

Thanks! A friend's family came back from WDW and said sthey'd wanted to visit the WL but there wasn't a direct bus, only the boat. I knew that didn't sound right, so I wanted to check.
