Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
- What's Included
We love camping at Fort Wilderness. There is many activities for the kids to do. The pool was nice and warm for our visit in January. Buying swimming diapers there is not expensive at all for 2 diapers it was $2.00! The outpost is always fun going to. We went the the arcade this time, our kids 6 & 4 had fun and enjoyed what games they had to play. The only thing our stay lacked was some staff not saying have a magical day during check in and in the outposts.
I am a hard grader and in my many past visits to the campsites with my Youth Group they have been blunders! They must have changed staff; the staff was very accommodating, and assisting us with our many needs when bringing a group of High School students to Disney. The campsites were all maintained this time (no construction materials thrown behind the trailers like last time). House keeping did a great job on keeping the many trailers we had clean and ready for us when we returned in the evening. Thanks for helping Chaad; you guys did great helping us fine tune our needs with the group. Note these are trailers; they can call them cabins; but....they are trailers. It's expensive but you pay for what you get. Expectations were met on this visit. BOOK EARLY...it's expensive here but cheaper than the hotels and you are responsible for cooking unless you go somewhere to eat. Try it...attempt to book a date over the next couple of weeks and you will see, it's a hard place to get into. Pet Friendly!!
We stayed at Fort Wilderness from Feb 12 to 16, 2017. We had 2 of our grandkids with us and we're staying in our class C motorhome. We had a campsite not to far from the ferry and only restaurant on the site. I can't complain about the site, although not large it felt comfy. I had a small problem with a valve in the water system so I went to both of the campground stores. I needed a hose clamp. The store was loaded with souvenirs, clothing, food and novelties but not much for camping. They had stocked with sewer hose and a few fittings (from the hose to the sewer hook up) but not a clamp in sight. Not a clamp of any kind. A water regulator but no hose. Really a poor job of stocking for those things that frequently go wrong. Has anyone there ever been camping?Having said all that, let me tell you that it's a great place to be. The campground is quiet with unbelievable transportation. We were a 10 minute ferry ride to the Magic Kingdom, a 20 minute bus ride to any other attraction in Disney and the busses all are equipped for mobility scooters. The staff were very friendly and tried to help as much as possible. I'll talk about the meal plan in the review on Disney....a hint, Disney should use a point system rather than trying to decipher the difference between snack, quick meal, and meal.
We have camped at Fort Wilderness several times. The sites are amazing! Level concrete pads, great water pressure, 50 amp service, cable with lots of Disney channels, 2 camp stores, 2 pools, a movie and fireworks every night.Our one snag was with transportation. On the way back from Epcot on a Disney bus, a controlled access gate came down on our bus. No one on board even knew it.Our driver, under instruction from her supervisor stopped the bus within site of the bus stop and wouldn't let any one off until an investigator arrived. When asked how long, all she could tell us was "in a bit".Several passengers explained that they had children that needed to go to the bathroom. I am diabetic and needed to get back to our camper to take medication. We were told that "no one was to leave the bus until a supervisor came to the site.After a very uncomfortable wait, a supervisor showed up and had us write our names on a piece of paper and asked about our injury's. (I remind you that no one on the bus even knew that there had been an incident.)After this was done, the bus pulled up 50 yards to the transportation hub and we were released.Aside from this, it was a great experience and we will be back.
I met my sister and brother in law at fort wilderness, where they had there RV. The place is a resort within itself, just not a campground. It has there own restaurant, pool, entertainment, horse rides, carriage rides and wagon rides. They also have continuous shuttles going to any other Disney resort, as well as a boat service to the magic kingdom. The grounds are impeccably clean, and well landscaped. It's a Disney resort, you can't go wrong.
