Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
- What's Included
We have a camper and do a lot of campground camping. This was our first stay at Disney FW. We stayed at the campground at the end of August. Our site was lovely; it was a premium site near the main pool area. The pool was obviously very crowded, but it was a nice pool. Everything was clean and well-maintained as you would expect at Disney. There was construction going on at the campground though, so the buses weren't running through our area, and they sent vans, but sometimes it was a looong wait. The worst part though was when we returned back from the Magic Kingdom and my bike had been stolen from the bike rack. As is custom at campgrounds, and was evident at Disney FW, no one locks their bikes. We brought a lock but saw no one else was locking up their bikes so we didn't use it. Our fault. But the way the campground handled it was awful! The manager on duty said he would notify security, but then didn't. They never notified lost and found. They never followed up with us. I called security the next day to see if they found anything and they knew nothing about it! Then we talked to some other guests and found out 2 other people who had their bikes stolen the same week. My question to Disney FW was, "Why aren't you warning people about this theft?" They can't answer that question, so I'm warning you: lock up your stuff!
We had a great few days at the Fort. Very clean facilities, large campsites and very organized area. There are buses and a ferry that takes you to the Magic Kingdom. The ferry was very convenient. They had a nice pool area although the whirlpool was only filled to your ankles so we couldn't use it as a spa. Pool hours were 9am- 9pm. Would've been nice if they were open when you got back from the parks. Unfortunately, we had to leave early because Hurricane Irma was on her way and we were encouraged to evacuate. We hope to reschedule our trip another time. We were impressed with the campground and hope mother nature will cooperate during our next visit.
I am typically not a big camper, but enjoyed visiting friends at the campgrounds. The comfort stations were very clean and include shower stalls (bring your own bath products and towels) as well as bathrooms. The sites were clean and provided picnic tables and full hookups for utilities. Great time!
This place is ABSOLUTELY amazing. Staff is SO friendly and inviting. You will feel like your home! The spots are clean. I use a pop-up but spots for tent camping are nice too. The "comfort" stations aka bathrooms are always clean and walking distance away. They have 2 shops to get "forgotten" items like butter or a poncho. Busses are around to take u from place to place. It's also a great place for kids and adults. The food at the restaurant is delicious. I can't say enough good things about this place :)
This was our second time to visit Fort Wilderness and it never disappoints. Easy access to the parks and fantastic campsites. It is a must to rent a golf cart to get around because this is a very large campground and it can take awhile waiting on the bus. Be sure to take the family to the Hoopty Do Review and make your reservations early. We camped on the premium campsites and had plenty of room for our 40 foot 5th wheel with five slides. It left lots of room to park my F250 crewcab and the golf cart. Being able to come back to the campground and cook out and relax is very nice. I would be happy just staying in the campground and not going to the park. Lots to do for children as you would expect. We can't wait to go back again.
