Does WL still have a bus to MK?

It's been a few years since we've stayed there. Last time (2005) we took the MK bus regularly and found it to be always fairly empty and fast since others were taking the boats.

Hoping the bus is still an option to MK from WL on our upcoming trip!

We were there in June and there was an MK bus running.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just hop on the big yellow boat that comes every few minutes and goes right to MK...

Yes, there is a bus to MK. A 5 minute ride and we actually prefer it to the boat!

think they have to kept it - when the lake is low you can't get a wheelchair on the boat - so buses are needed.

of course it has been years since the lake was low.

Yes, they do have a bus. And because it goes directly to the park and doesn't stop anywhere else, it could very well take less time than the boat does.

I'm glad to hear that it is still in operation. Last time we stayed there we took the boat on the first MK day and the rest of the trip we took the bus. It was SO fast.

Can't wait!!!!
