Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
- What's Included
Amazing to me I see negative reviews about this incredible campground. I can only figure that these people haven't camped much, or are expecting way to much. After being in dozens of RV parks, Disney is hands down the cleanest and best run. And I see complaints during peak times of $120 a night. Try booking a hotel with a water view, outstanding service and the cleanest site you have ever been on for that price. People Crack me up! Mr. Walt Disney nailed it with this campground!
We've camped here multiple times, mainly for cub scout family campouts. The grounds & facilities are very clean and it's easy to navigate around the campground - bring bikes, rent a golf cart, or ride the convenient bus shuttles. Magic bands are used for purchases, reentry, & to open comfort station doors during the night. Be sure to check out the monthly recreation calendar to see all the free & additional cost activities there are to choose from. My kids love some of the simple things like Disney led dodge ball and the pool slide at the Meadow Swimmin' Pool. Favorites also include the campfire sing-a-long (Bring your own S'more makings), the nightly outdoor movie, and watching the Electrical Water Pageant & fireworks from the beach. Keep in mind, campers will hear fireworks and boat/train whistles from the park, which has sometimes been an issue in getting our youngest one to sleep.
Very easy check in. Extremely welcoming staff. Trees are trimmed back so no scraping. (We have a big rig. We camped in our 39' fifth wheel toy hauler.) We reserved a big premium sight with easy back in (all are back in) however you don't know the number until you actually get there. Ours was difficult to back in but with help we were able to manage. Wifi seems to be up and down during early morning and late evenings when everyone seems to be using it. Cable is the same. The bus transportation systems are excellent to use. Very pedestrian and bike friendly. Will definitely return. On a side note -Workers came through this week marking underground cables/power. Rumor is Disney is upgrading to fiber optic throughout the park.Also we learned about an app call FORT FIENDS (not FRIENDS). It lists each lot. Size and easy or difficult back in. Would have been nice to know our site number so we could request an easier location.
Rented the cabin's. Camper set up is available. Worked great for a "camp" like vacation. Much more affordable than other Disney properties with similar advantages.The lodge restaurant is good but I think it takes two disney dinning meals. $$Rent a Golf Cart! adds to the fun!
This is a great place to tent camp, but you will pay a steep price for sleeping on the ground. There are a number of things for families to do. Be aware that the fireworks make it hard for little ones to go to bed at a decent hour. The ice machine wouldn't accept my money, and security was very helpful in making sure we got some.
