Hi all! Don't know if anyone has shared this before, but Disney Visa cardholders get 10% off of breakfast and lunch at Trail's End. I know some of us like to eat there, so I thought I would post this info. (Although I suspect KOOK has probably done so before)
Now, back to catching up on the thread.

This is great info. We will probably plan on an out of pocket breakfast there even though we'll be on the dining plan. The extra discount will make it an even better deal. Thanks!

Wilderness Lodge to Fort Wilderness

We are having dinner at the Hoop Dee Doo Review and I am wondering how long it will take to get from Wilderness Lodge to Fort Wilderness? Are they in the same area? How do we get from place A to B.

It takes at most 10 minutes to get from WL to FW, if that. Just walk to the dock at WL, which is located past the pool area, and then wait on the side heading for FW. Then at FW get off and there should be signs directing you to the HDDR. I am not sure if you need to take a bus to the HDDR since FW is so big but ask a resort worker once you get off the boat. Have fun!

Once you get off the boat at FW, it is a VERY short walk (5 minutes or less) to HDDR---and all of the HDDR fun and good food!

Kook, can't wait until June 2 when we get to try the deluxe club level room for the first time. Have stayed at WL several times (I have,but not my 4 granddaughters who are accompanying me), but never tried the OFC. We'll only be there a couple of nights before we move on to Boardwalk (my favorite), but am really looking forward to WL.

The boat to FW sometimes travels to CR before it goes to FW. There are two boats that travel in opposite directions between WL, CR and CR. Give yourself twenty minutes to get there.

We had a great time at Hoop Dee Doo.

Neat, you should have a great trip. I'll chime in with a few answers based upon our experiences at WL, and I am sure others will join in as well.

There are afternoon pool parties at the main pool every day. There is also a shallow kiddie pool right next to the main pool. There is also a hidden mickey hunt where you can go around the resort with a sheet to guide you in looking for them. You can get the sheet at the front desk or from here. There is also a small playground by the beach, and sand to play in at the beach, but swimming in the lake is not allowed. Finally there are bike rentals, and you can ride them on the trails that lead over toward Fort Wilderness.

In our experience it was about a 10-15 minute ride, with a stop at the Grand Floridian to pick up additional guests. From WL HS is one of the longer rides, but not terrible.

I believe this is the smores event at Fort Wilderness, and to get there you can either take a boat or bus from WL to FW (which is 5 minute trip on the bus or 5 or 10 minutes on a boat depending on whether it stops at CR first), or it is about a 15 minute walk through the woods between the resorts (so some people may not want to do it at night). Once you are at the Settlement area of FW (where the boat docks and Hoop De Doo are), you can ride any internal FW bus to the park in the middle of FW, and that is where the smores event is. The FW bus drivers will help make sure you get the right stop, and it is a pretty short ride (less than 5 min) but to walk it would be at least half a mile from the Settlement area.

If the boat is headed from WL to CR it is about a 4-5 minute ride, but the same boats also go the other direction, so if that's the case it could stop at FW first then go to CR, makining it about a 10 minute ride.

The Blue Flag boats, which run in a loop between WL, CR, and FW run from 6:55AM to 11:30 PM every day. The boat to MK has different hours that are based on MK park hours.

Shampoo

Hello!

For anyone that recently stayed at the WL - is the Shampoo and Conditioner combined, or separate bottles that they provide. We are staying in a standard room (NON club level). I also assume they provide bar soap for the shower.

Thanks.
