Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Love the panel! Staying at CS in June, what is the best way to travel to Whispering Canyon Cafe from CS? Also, how far is the pony rides from Whispering Canyon? Can fireworks be viewed from Wilderness Lodge? If so, where is the best spot to see Wishes?

- Hi William! The easiest way to travel from Coronado Springs to Whispering Canyon Cafe is to take the bus to the Magic Kingdom (about a 15 minute bus ride) and then walk over to the boat launch to take the boat to the Wilderness Lodge (about a 10 minute ride). If you'd like the trip to be faster and more direct, you could always opt to take a taxi.
I assume by your question's wording, you'd like the pony rides for children. But, I'll go ahead and talk about both options just in case: Horseback riding is at Ft. Wilderness, which is a short boat ride away from the Wilderness Lodge. Reservations can be made at 407-824-2832. The pony rides are also located at Ft. Wilderness at the petting zoo; no advanced reservations are needed for those.
Finally, there really isn't a spot to view the fireworks from at the Wilderness Lodge. While there were some rooms with views once, the trees have since grown and blocked the views. If you can try to take a boat launch back to the Magic Kingdom just before the time the fireworks are to begin, you should be able to see them from the boat.
Thanks, too, for the compliment -- we are having so much fun helping guests with their travel plans!
