Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
- What's Included
Site is a little cramped for a premium. Barely enough room to have the golf cart next to the camper. Had to make a choice. Chairs or Cart because not enough room to drive around the chairs. Still one of the best places to stay. Make sure you bring plenty of sewer hose because on our loop (500), the connections are in the front of the site. I used 20 ft and needed about 10ft more to get my camper back where it would have been better placed.
Had a good time. Nice park but way too hot! Too hot doe even the pool- you will burn so fast! Can't ride ponies after 5 pm - which is when you should ride them - too hot otherwise I highly recommend this location - just between October and April only
Fort Wilderness is always a great time, even though we did not partake with all the extras the campground has to offer, we had the best "girls week-end" ever. Clean bathrooms and showers, good Disney transportation, nice camping areas and great Disney people. We will be coming back every year
I'm gonna begin this review by saying that I do not camp. I'm not a camper. I'm also going to begin by saying that, even after living in Florida for 20+ years and going to Disney 20+ times, I had no idea Fort Wilderness was even a thing. I typically stay at any of the Magic Kingdom resorts when I get to do Disney, so I didn't really know what to expect when meeting a friend and her family at the campsites. You've found a fan. The campsites were pristine! I honestly did not see a single piece of trash throughout the entire grounds. I found the option to rent a golf cart particularly wonderful, as Fort Wilderness is HUGE. My friend and I enjoyed driving around to both the little shops and eateries and to the beachy boat dock area. The view at night is absolutely beautiful. Watching the sunset and Magic Kingdom fireworks from the beach was one of my favorite parts of the trip. As well, every member of the staff at the aforementioned shops and eateries were all friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were also incredibly impressive, clean and well kept, with roomy showers that never seemed to run out of hot water. All in all, I would absolutely come camping again at Fort Wilderness. It's a neat alternative to staying in a hotel during a few Disney days, and is a lovely little vacation within itself.
We have longed stayed at the Port Orleans and decided to mix things up and go for camping gold! Wow--- what an awesome experience. From A-Z there are too many good things to say! There's even fast internet! (use with caution, have your own security measures) We brought our bikes along and loved getting the extra exercise peddling around the huge huge huge park. The experiences offered at this resort are a vacation within themselves. Loads of things for kids and adults too! Hoop Dee Doo is sooo fun and highly recommend! Characters visit and little shops are awesome! Then there's the cool Marina with its own beach! Loved it all! Used the pools (fantastic) the comfort stations are very well kept and so is the whole park. We were very impressed with camping Disney style! We rode the boats over to other resorts to catch monorail and getting to parks was a breeze while we were there. Others have complained about wait times- but honestly, it depends on when you visit and how crowded it is. A few times we drove our truck to the parks since the transport wait times were a bit longer. We've been staying within WDW at their resorts for years so if you do too- you know the perks of doing so! This was our first time staying here though and we were so pleased- we're willing to haul our camper there again! (smiles)
