We did a combo stay between AKL and SSR Treehouse the same time last year and really enjoyed both. Loved the spaciousness and relaxed feeling of the treehouse but also loved the hustle and bustle and animal views at AKL (had a regular club level room though and it was small! ). The only downside to both resorts was the driving. We had a rental car and used this over Disney transportation to save time (especially with all the stops at Treehouse).

Where else do the boats go from VWL? Looks like definitely to MK and Fort Wilderness. Does it go to Contemporary? Can we then hop on the monorail to Poly or Epcot? Sorry I don't know the monorail layout well. My Mom would love to do the Lua at the cove and it would be great to take boat/monorail over bus. Just a much more magical experience to me!

Thank you!!
The boats do go to Contemporary and FW.
You can catch the Monorail to MK, Grand Floridian and Polynesian OR the monorail to MK and Ticket and Transportation, then transfer at TAT to Epcot Monorail.
Bear in mind, the boat then monorail to TAT then monorail to Epcot can eat up a lot of time, it can be magical though.
We love the boats around Bay Lake over to the resorts and MK. Im not big on the buses and use our van for most treks to parks, but love the boats and monorails!

Also, if you would like, I can add your dates to the 1st page on upcoming vacations. If so, just PM me

WooHoo! We have a new visitor, hopefully a new Groupie! Visit often, grab a rocking chair on the porch and join us .

Yup, the boats go to FW. And yes, Contemporary. And yes, boat to CR and monorail to MK resorts and TTC.
But you have to get off at TTC to catch one to Epcot, sadly.

Enjoy planning!

OK Muush...Treehouse photos! As you can tell, they are reminiscent of our lodge...

Thank you all for the warm welcome!!!

I'm getting so excited!

Thank you for all of the info on the boat and monorail lines. Getting to MK and the MK resorts will be pretty straightforward, but sounds like Epcot will be more of a trek (we'll call it an adventure!).

Need to start deciding on our dining reservations, think we can start booking on March 8th, yeah!!

Welcome, and as Muushka says, pull up a rocking chair, set a spell, come back often. . .and, oh, don't forget to actually make it into the spittoon. One of our favorite things about VWL is the boat ride to MK. We use the boats to CR and FW less often, but they are nice bennies to have. As for the dining reservations, I'd suggest Artist Point since you're staying right there. One of the best restaurants on WDW property. Enjoy!

Hi groupies!! Reporting in from our first "value" Atari. I'm glad we did it once, but it was the first and last time. Lmao. Spoiled much? Next time we "need" to do a cash trip it will be POR or bust!! But most likely, all DVC from here on out!

Thank you for the tip on Artist Point, I will add that to the list.

Does anyone know if Captain Cook's at the Poly has Tonga Toast for breakfast? They did when we were there last year, but pulled up a few recent user submitted menus and don't see it listed.

Realize this isn't a Poly thread, but since the resorts are close...

Thanks!!

Not sure of the Tonga Toast at Capt Cook's, but Roaring Forks at WL has Mickey waffles will several toppings. lol Oh, and the smoky portobello soup at Artist Point is a must.
