Thanks for the info on the transportion from WL to the Poly.

I think we'll take the bus to MK and monorail it from there.

I assume you're talking about the trail rides at FW? Yes, you need to make a reservation ahead of time for those.

I did one on my last trip. It's a nice trip through the woods, but it's very much for beginners. The horses are very well trained, and need very little guidance (although my horse was trying to have a snack, and some wouldn't stay in line ). I enjoyed it because I have basically no experience on horses, so it was fun, but your daughter could be bored. (We did see some deer in the woods, so there are things like that to spice it up.)

If you have any more questions, just ask.

My daughter is in love with horses. She can spend her whole day at the stables she rides at just so she can be around them. She won't mind if it's just a slow trail ride.

transportation from WL to Swan Dolphin

So we are meeting family for dinner at Il Mulino at the Swan Dolphin hotel. Can anyone tell me the best way via Disney transportation to get to Swan Dolphin from WL.

TIA,
Robin

Well, you have a couple of choices. You can take a bus to Epcot and then walk out the back gate and over to the Swan/Dolphin, or you can take a boat to MK or bus to any other park and catch a resort bus, or you can take the bus to DTD and catch a direct bus to Swan/Dolphin, I think they share with Yacht and Beach Club or Boardwalk, don't remember which.

Just Back

Hi All,

Just back from WL and it was amazinggggggggg!!!!!! I really did not want to leave. We stayed Club Level for the first time and it was very nice. I have lots of pictures of the Lodge that I will uplaod in a day or 2 (when dh has the time to show me how to do it--I am slightly--well very--techie challenged!!)
We got to be flag family one day which was absolutly fantastic. The view from the roof was unbelivable--you could see as far as Epcot and EE at Animal Kingdom. We had Jack as our guide and he was soooo knowledgable and just all round wonderful. We had a great daytime housekeeper, Diane, who was really sweet. Did I mention it was sunny and did not rain for 8 days straight: no lie--Thats just what kind of unusually great vacation it was. I also got a hug from Stan for giving him a cough drop ( for all of you WL vets who know stan) Stan is the adorable older gentleman who greets you when you first pull up to the lodge and says"Welcome Home" when you walk in. Its a great way to kick off your trip.
If anyone has ANY questions feel free to fire away. This is the wonderful informative thread that I got all my info from!!!-

P.S. Kimmar I have a WCC story too!!! Hee Haa--- I dont have enough time to write that one right now!!!!!


Have a great day.

I think the easiest would be to catch a bus from WL to DHS (Studios). From there, you can either catch a boat to S/D or even walk along the canal.

...I don't know if it's necessarily EASIER, but another alternative you can consider is to take the boat to MK and catch a bus from there directly to S/D....
