Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
- What's Included
over all there was an easy check-in process online before arrival to campsites, drove up at checkpoint and was provided with our loop 100 space. We have a 37.5 Rv and back into space wasn't difficult, but did have heavy picnic table to move that in my opinion should have been closer to the BBQ grill they provide so that we could get the Rv in. Loop 100 is close to Marina, buffet restaurant and Tavern. 1st and 2nd items needing improvement pool area is far from the loop we were at, they have no transportation other than you walk or rent a golf cart if they have any or bring your own. They have larger buses buses at some loops not all that close in some loop areas and they run at the mercy of other golf carts and rvs . So basically not enough golf carts for the amount of spaces they have people coming in and complimentary buses not running on the tight vacation time. Pool itself was questionably cloudy, and we saw someone test the water chemicals. Wasn't going to dunk under the water. They also don't give you towels like the other resorts. I know I'm coming in with most items with me but I don't want to do towel laundry and you pay a pr mom to stay Disney and they can't give a towel? Additionally they only have umbrellas on table locations and nothing were the lounge chairs are. It's hotter than hades on the pool deck . ( I know your the Fort) but when your in a Sun state things need to be lighter color and covered. Would I stay here again Yes,would reserve a golf cart prior to visit. Location is gorgeous outdoors, I will repeat transportation and pool area need improvements.
Okay so me and my parents stayed at a camp site and let me say this to you to help you out if you're a camper doing an RV !!DO NOT GO IN JUNE!!! That is Floridas rainy season and it is no good. Our last night we went to the P&J southern takeout and we ate there the whole time we were staying when we first got there the first night and ordered a girl named ALI took out order and let me just say she was not very friendly and I was always told "Everyone at Disney is so nice and helpful and greets amazing" but when we order she says "hi what do you want" and it was kinda off putting but whatever so the very last night we go up there and spend $40 on food and let me just say their prices aren't the cheapest for some food you can get anywhere a cheese pizza is literally $20 but there's a little Cesar's down the road and you can get a large cheese pizza for $5 but anyways we order a cheese pizza and two cheeseburgers. So we are waiting and waiting and an hour later we still haven't got a buzz so we go up there and we get in there and my dad asks what's taking so long and when I say I saw disappointment on customers faces and angry people I knew something was up so the other girl would not tell us what's wrong kept avoiding until finally she listened and she didn't know how to read a ticket didn't know what was what and that girl ALI was just standing there off in space so I finally say can I speak to your manager and the manager comes up and I tell her what's wrong and she doesn't say sorry or anything she says "I guess I'll give you your money back" and literally a couple next us had been waiting 35 minutes JUST TO HAVE THEIR ORDER TAKEN. And they finally get someone and they say can we have the chicken kids meal and the manager says "yes but it will be off the buffet" THAT HAS BEEN SITTING THERE. So they continue not doing good just bad service and they didn't know how to do their job so we finally get our food and we're missing the pizza and ALI says "oh I forgot" and we had to wait another 20 minutes for our pizza. So I'm listening to people and they're saying "they said they were out of pepperoni pizza but there two tubs or pepperonis right there" so turns out ALI had been lying and saying we're out so anyways long story I know but the food was cold and it was terrible and I hate to say this but I will not be back we are staying in a hotel next time.
We are tent campers and this was our first time camping out here. You get the feel of the outdoors with the comfort of a resort. The sites were a goos size. We were able to accommodate comfortably 2 tents. There is si much to do no one in the family gets bored. They offer bus transportation and ferries if you plan to go to the parks.
Think about how you feel your camping experience ought to be, and then triple it when you get to this campground. The campsites are the best ever - all level - full service - services and obviously attractions within a short bus ride from near your campsite. If you have a camping trailer or larger RV, and you want to go to Disney, do it this way. You will never stay in a resort again.
I can not tell you how much we love this campground! It's our favorite! We spent a week here, on our way to the beach. We didn't even plan on going into the parks (we did anyway!). The premium sites are 100% paved. The comfort stations are super clean and using the laundry facility is super easy. No need for quarters - all the machines and vending machines use credit cards! Each site also has a water hose at the front for rinsing you equipment before packing up. We use the Fortfriends.net app to view all the sites - which they rate ease of getting in, as well as a picture - to pick a loop/site we like. We also rent a golf cart to get around in, which I highly recommend. One of our fave things to do, is drive around the area and up to Pioneer Hall to eat and watch the fireworks. Getting to MK is super easy, using the boat shuttle that is at the Pioneer Hall area boat launch. Also, Trail's End restaurant is a great place to eat - buffet style serving comfort foods and has a carving station. It serves as the same kitchen for the Hoop Dee Doo Review! We are coming at Christmas for 2 weeks in 2018 and can't wait! Hint: book early b/c they fill up quickly!!
