    If someone has an 8:05 ADR at Chef Mickey's and is a resort guest at Wilderness Lodge..... will they be able to still take the boat "home" to WL after dinner? Or does the boat stop running earlier than that?

    TIA!

    ALL transportation runs 90 minutes past park closing; so since the boat generates from MK, it will run 90 minutes past the closing time of MK for that evening.

    You can find lots of information on all the forms of transportation and information on the Transportation board.

    This is really helpful, thank you.

    I will check out the transportation board as well.

    Thanks!

    The boat from the CR to WL NEVER goes to a theme park. Not sure of the current hours but last I heard this boat runs until 10 or 11 p.m. Plenty of time to enjoy your meal.

    It is "associated" with that park; just like the DHS boat to the BC/YC/BW/Swan/Dolphin - it runs 90 minutes past DHS park closing for that evening.

    I disagree. That boat has NOTHING to do with the MK, with the exception that you can actually see the MK from it. Every time I've stayed at the CR that boat's operating hours have been totally independent of MK hours.

    The "Resort Loop" or "Blue Flag" boats on Bay Lake run late hours, even when MK closes early. This allows access to FW, WL, and the CR. Post 4 of the WL thread here lists that they run until 11:30 at night, and that seems consistent with what I remember seeing on the signs, even though we were there in September when parks closed relatively early. Enjoy your trip and WL. We love it there, and the boats are one of our favorite things. :thumbsup2

    pretty sure it does not stop until after the 9:30 show at FW - not sure how long that is maybe 11 pm - so would say 11:30pm - might be midnight - think the hours for this boat are posted.

    It is not part of the parks. but think it is attached to Hoop Dee Doo Musical show and also California Grill at the CR and I think Artist Point at WL.
