Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
- What's Included
Well we just loved our stay here. The campground is huge with lots to do and see. The bathhouses are well kept and clean and the sites are perfect sized for our large tent and trailer.You can check in online before your arrival and they will email you your campsite. You show your magic band at the guardhouse and go straight to your site. If you want to rent a golf cart, be sure to do so in advance because they go quickly. You can also stop at the front office to pick up your free internet package for your site.The Meadow Pool area is awesome. They have a great pool and lots of activities during the day. They have a snack bar and you can get a Disney Cup that has free refills during your entire stay. You can take the ferry to the Magic Kingdom, where you can get transportation to anywhere in the Disney resort. We did some resort hopping this time to check things out.Don't miss the nightly campfire sign-a-long with Chip n Dale. Bring your own S'mores to save some money. Other activities include wagon rides, horseback riding, archery, etc. You can rent boats and go fishing. Every night you can see the free Wishes firework display from the beach and also the nightly magical light parade. It's a great place to take the kids camping or just go on your own.
Everything about the campground was great. We loved taking the boat to the magic kingdom rather than waiting for a bus. The golf cart is a must, and it was fun just exploring the campground in it. I highly recommend Ft. Wilderness
We went just for two nights to meet up with some friends who were in town. We usually like to stay in the 1500 loop but this time was our first in the 2000 loop. It is about the same distance to the settlement and outpost as the 1500, but you are father away from the main pool.The bus service was good. We never waited more than 10 minutes and this was in their busy time of year (Aug.). A quick but very enjoyable visit. And be sure to get some of the take out fried chicken at P&J's Take Out next door to Trail's End at the Fort. It's the same Chicken you get there, but you can't beat the price...$10 for two huge chicken breasts and two sides! You won't find any other delicious food at Disney for this price!
I thought the prices were reasonable, Actually, down right good. It's Disney folks! ;-) Having said that, our site was great. Easy to back in, easy to pull out. We rented a Preferred site. About 3/4 black top, 1/4 sand in the rear. The blacktop was wider then the Full hook up site. We had the comfort station right down the loop from us. It was well maintained and lit very nicely. We had no problem renting a golf cart at last minute. My husband called about a week before our check in date and set one up. Speaking of golf carts, I do feel they need more parking for carts at pool area though. The only buses we had to take were those to and from the parks. Which is a little disappointing that they didn't have more shuttles for our resort. We had to wait 30 mins one morning for an AK shuttle. With Pandora being so new, you would have thought they'd have had en extra one thrown in there for the amount of people wanting to go there. As it was, by the time it left our resort it was packed, there wasn't even standing room left. Other then the shuttle issue, we liked staying here. It was a lot cheaper for a family of 6 to stay here, as opposed any other Disney resort. Thank you Disney for a magical time!
We have camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground for years now. It has always been and still is one of our favorite places to camp in Florida. While we stay at a lot of nice campgrounds and state parks, this is by far the nicest campground we stay at. When you check in they give you maps and information on the things to do at the campground. Also there are several different levels of campsites. Some are completely concrete, and some are partly sand. We try to reserve the Premium Site, the paved one) as its just a lot cleaner inside the camper after staying here a week. There is plenty of room at each site. Each site has a picnic table and grill.
