When one stays at the WL and takes the boat to the MK, does that same boat service FW? If so where does it go first? When looking in our new 2013 Passporter e-book (SO AWESOME) It says there are over 1,000 'rooms' at FW with occupancy of 3-10 people. If WL shares with FW, do WL people ever get a chance to have room on the boat?
For some reason I have it in my mind that this boat also goes to the Contemporary. That isn't true is it? All I really remember is that the diesel fumes weren't extremely pleasant. Please Passporters (since we already booked the WL) share some magical memories of transportation at the WL especially to the MK by boat.

The boat on the left of the dock goes from WL to MK. It doesnt stop at FW. the right side stops at FW and Cont. There are signs to tell you which goes to where. We have stayed at WL several times and have never had any issues with the boats. We love them!!

Even if for some reason you do end up sharing a boat with FW (which I doubt), FW is so spread out that I think a lot of people end up using their cars to get places. I know we did years and years ago when FW was only half the size it is now. And over the past few years with HDD or Trails End reservations, the few times we've taken the boat, the line has never been overly long. I want to say if there were 30 to 40 people in line for FW (actually at FW waiting), that was a lot. I know at the MK, there were never very many people waiting for FW - most of them were waiting for the WL boats.
We have only stayed at WL once, and I can tell you - no problem getting a boat. EVER.
The only issues we had were sometimes having to wait for the larger boat that DD's wheelchair could go on. Every other boat is that, while the others are the smaller launches. I don't recall anyone getting left on the dock because the boat was full.
We once rode the boat from MK to WL just for the fun of it. We did stop at FTW, but the boat was not full (this was before lunch). I bet that this was like the buses at the All Stars; dedicated boats in busy times, and in slack times they will "share" the boats.
We've stayed at FW and WL many times. The MK boats mainly service MK...except for once in a while late at night...the will go back to through FW then to WL. We haven't really had any problems...and you will find that it's very nice on afternoon or evening departrues from MK to boat back to WL!!!
There are the smaller boats then the big boat, we usually wait for the larger boat since we dont have to fold up the stroller to ride that one. There are different colored flags on the smaller boat, Green & Blue we love riding the boat to Mk. It is a nice ride to FW as well.
Love the Magic of Disney Thanks Dad for our first 5 trips.
