Now that our focus is on our December trip, my wife and I are talking about options.
Anyhow, while “resort hopping” is not officially allowed, I do think that in at least some cases, you can resort hop to see the resorts, or in the very least if you have dining reservations, etc.
Okay. So two questions.
We aren’t sure if there is any reason to head to Old Key West for Christmas decorations or not. But we did see a Vlogger post about eating at Olivia’s. (They claimed that the fried chicken there is actually better than Homecomin’!) Anyhow, my thought is that, since we’re staying at the Boardwalk, we can walk over to HS and hop on a bus to Old Key West to get there. But then I wondered about getting back. If the park is closed, this would mean we have to take transportation to Disney Springs from Old Key West, and then take the bus back to Boardwalk from DS. Looking at transportation from OKW…does anyone know if the boats are running to DS? Or are they only doing buses now?
Similarly, if we wanted to look at Wilderness Lodge, we can do the same thing…question here, though, is if they will let us into the resort if we simply have a mobile order at the quick service place rather than the TS? The idea would be to have placed a mobile order ahead of time so we could show them our order upon arrival. Primarily this would be just to see the Christmas decor at WL. Of course…with HS closing at 7 pm, would the bus transportation run back to HS from WL after that? If not, we’ll probably have to do the whole bus to DS first thing.
