She would have to be mobile to get into the smaller resort launches. If the larger boat were not operating to MK - and we've been there when it hasn't been, then to ride the monorail, instead of busing to Epcot there's also a short bus ride from WL/BRV/CCV to MK. Then you could start on one of the MK monorail loops and transfer to the Epcot one, do that loop and then back to transfer to MK to get to the bus and back to CCV.

For something else - they also operate a bus over to FW that drops off at the Settlement if you want to go tool around there or eat at Trails End. You can visit the Draft horse barns as well as checking out the rest of the Settlement. They also have Hoop de Doo if you want a dinner and night time show that was easy to get to from CCV.
That's a good idea to see the draft horses and have a bite over there. I will consider Hoop de Doo. I did that a long time ago and it was fun. She might like that. Thanks!

We didn't experience it, so maybe it's hit or miss with them that way. Like we could see the one boat going to/from Ft. Wilderness/Contemporary when we were loading. But yeah, ask the captains. They know best.

There is also a physical path between the two. Assuming you all are fine, it's good for an ECV to go on. We walked that a few times and it was quite nice.

When you go from the TTC to Epcot, you look round the back of Spaceship Earth so you can see FW. And you can see World Showcase from a distance. Then you come into the station. For a first glimpse of Epcot on each trip I still get excited on the monorail “fly past” of FW!

If you get on at Epcot, you miss all that.

Yes, I like the flyover of FW too on the monorail! If we started at Epcot we would go all the way around and back to TTC. lol

We might do the walk. She loves driving that ECV. Security caught her speeding in the hallway at AKL. She said, "whoops!" and he shook his finger at her.

Less than 10 minutes, and you can sit down - a rare luxury when spending the day in MK.
