Using Disney Resort Transportation
It is possible to use Disney’s buses to get to Fort Wilderness, but you will need to transfer at least one time as there are no direct routes from Disney Resort hotels or Disney Vacation Club resorts to Fort Wilderness. Be sure to allot plenty of time for this method of transportation.

If you are able to drive to Fort Wilderness or use a ride-sharing service, you can park, or be dropped off right in front of the Outpost Bus Depot, which offers buses directly to Pioneer Hall, where the show takes place. It’s recommended to allow for about 30 minutes to get from the Outpost Bus Depot to Pioneer Hall.

It is also possible to take a ferry that originates at Magic Kingdom, but it’s recommended to set aside up to an hour and a half to make the trek.
