transport options at new Four Seasons

Also asked at resort thread, does anyone know how the 4S guests will get to parks? It is within the Golden Oak - will it use their mini-buses? Will there be boats (appears to be on some sort of waterfront - maybe a tributary of Bay Lake?) Will it have its own buses? (May dampen tranquility of Golden Oak). Just curious. May consider eating there once restaurants open just to see it - I assume hotel above my budget

Good view of the construction site here.

Doesn't look like boat transport is an option as the on waterway that makes its way to Bay Lake has a dam/flood-control/lock structure. And I think I see a few low bridges.

My guess is it will have its own bus transportation, just like Swan/Dolphin and Disney resorts. No inside knowledge here, but I bet in the beginning they'll try something semi-exclusive, but low utilization of that service will eventually lead to plain old Disney-tranport buses. Maybe with a dedicated route.
