I thought you posted in a previous thread regarding the wizard. My bad. Sorry. My comments are more directed to OLP, but they don't care.

The question isn't if it works for me but if it works for anyone. You provided the link. Take the 2 minutes to look up the two examples I posted. What do you think?

I'm not denying it works sometimes but even a stopped watch is right twice a day. OK that comment only applies to analog watches but you get the point.

I did not look up every possible route combination on there, not did I post on another thread about it. Nor do I dislike the people here on the Dis, as was also suggested.

I have no intention to look up your examples because I have no reason to doubt your criticisms of it. I had this bookmarked from a while back, tested it out briefly when this thread came up (not using the sample routes you provided) and it seemed fine, so I posted it here in an attempt to be helpful. That's all.

I'm sorry. I confused you with other posters who continue to suggest the wizard.

Some of their routes are correct. Many aren't.

CSR bus to Boardwalk. That bus hasn't run for over 10 years.

Other routes don't make any sense.

Contemporary via monorail to GF. Bus from GF to DTD.
or
Contemporary to FW via boat. Bus from FW to DTD.

I have a question

On 12/6 we are touring MK. We will get there at RD and have a 12:25pm ADR at Whispering Canyon Cafe. We are also planning on hopping over to DHS to Fantasmic!

My question is will we have likely have enough time to get back to MK for more touring, or should we head over to DHS after lunch? Any specific routes that make the most sense.

We will have another full day in MK as well as a MVMCP so if we don't go back, it won't be the end of the world. That being said, my kiddos are the type to run to go non-stop and they will be hungry to go back to a park and I am thinking that DHS will be a zoo and we will have toured that already.

TIA

You would not need to leave directly from lunch to go to DHS for Fantasmic if that's all you're trying to do (but you could take a bus straight to DHS from WL). I think you would be done with lunch by 2:00, so it all depends on what time you want to arrive to DHS or how much running around you feel like doing.

Nah, that was a general "you", not that you/nytimez doesn't like someone.

THIS THREAD will work better than that search engine

Okay, well, you'll have plenty of time between lunch and Fantasmic!, especially since you don't need to tour DHS. You don't say what time the show is, but you probably want to be there about two hours in advance. Best route? Walk over to the Contemporary and take the DHS bus. Next best route, monorail or ferry to the TTC and take the DHS bus. The latter will be a direct bus; the bus from the hotel will probably stop at the Polynesian first.

I don't think he was being condescending...the problem is that we get a ton of posters here who recommend this particular site. And while there is some decent info there, there is also a ton of bad info. So, we are constantly recommending that people not use it. Many of us have tried contacting OLP and asking that they update the info, but for some reason, it hasn't been done. At least not 100%...and until it's 100% dependable, I am not going to recommend it to anyone here. Way too much room for error.

Now....let's get back to giving out info about the best way from point A to point B. No more back and forth about another site.

Oh, and MagicBus...we tend to think you have a decent amount of WDW info to be shared....

ETA: I meant take a boat (not bus) from Beach Club to the WS. I know it's close but I don't know if my Mom would be up for walking. It hardly seems worth waiting for a boat, though, so if we have enough time we could just slowly walk.
If you were seriously thinking of taking the boat to WS, I would take the bus to the YC not BC, it's a shorter walk to the boat dock.

What is the best way to get to O'hana's for breakfast from Port Orleans Riverside? I have a 7:30 am ressie, and I'm not scared to get up early

Carey
I would suggest once you get to the TTC just walk over to the Polynesian, Its only a couple minute walk and you would avoid any delayed opening of the monorail system or safety checks that are taking place.

It is more than a 5 minute walk from the BC bus stop to IG (particularly if mom can't walk that fast). And it's about the same distance from BC bus stop to IG as it is from IG to Italy. (BTW you can avoid the slight incline by taking the pathway that goes under the bridge.)
In another post I mentioned that if megsie1000 wanted to save her mom as many steps (not time) as possible her best bet would be to take the bus from MK to YC not BC, to boat dock and boat to IG. That way mom will have a bit of a rest between walks. It's a shorter walk from YC to boat dock than BC to boat dock.

The bus from POR to the MK stops at the MK not at the TTC. The driver might drop you off at the POLY. Otherwise take the resort monorail or boat to POLY. You can't walk.

Yes ... anytime going to a MK resort for breakfast, always mention to the driver where you're trying to get to, especially if it's more than an hour before park opening. Even if they can't drop you off on the way, the bus may be headed to that resort for it's next run after the MK.
