Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

~Written by: Monica Forte Owner Making MagicalVacations Travel

If you want to take in the scenery, the peace and tranquility of relaxing while vacationing in Walt Disney World, then nothing beats Disney's Fort Wilderness Campsites and Resorts. Many mistake Disney's Wilderness Lodge for the camping aspect,both although similar in decor and wilderness are not when it comes to each resort.

Want to "rough" it in the great outdoors? Then Disney's Fort Wilderness is for you! You and your family can tent, drive or rent a Motorhome/Camper/RV on any of their Tent, Premium or Preferred pad sites with full hook-up. Or choose a home away from experience in one of many the Wilderness Cabins. Each Cabin is fully furnished and gives its guests the comforts of home and that Disney touch. Daily Mousekeeping is included.

All loops have beautifully decorated and clean comfort stations with full showers/restrooms and laundry facilities. All guests who use the comfort stations will have to access these stations by having your "Magic Bands" for safety purposes.

It is suggested that guests also rent or bring their own golf carts. These can be rented thru the Outpost Reception area when checking in. Having access to a golf cart allows easy access on the cart paths to several destinations while on the resort property. The entire Disney's Fort Wilderness Campsites and Resorts spans over 700 acres making it one of the largest Disney's Resorts on property.These golf carts allow easy access to many amentities such as Pioneer Hall where guests can enjoy a fun-filled evening at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue while eating a delicious meal (reservations are highly recommended and guests on the Dining Plan using Table Service will account for 2 TS meals deducted for each guest from their the Dining Plan). For guests who want just a quick bite to eat you can have take-out at Trails End or if using your Dining Plan guests can enjoy a real home-cooked buffet and if you want to enjoy a brew sit-down at Crockett's Tavern.

If you came to rough it or just want to save money guests can visit the Settlement and Meadow's Trading Posts for all lite groceries/camping gear and souvenirs, the golf carts are also handy if you are visiting the Meadow's Swimming Hole/Camp Fire Sing-Along with Chip & Dale, a nightly Disney Movie (weather permitting) or getting the water taxi from Clementine Beach to take guests over to Magic Kingdom....

The activities at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground are endless. For a nominal fee guests can purchase these fun-filled family activities such as 

fishing/canoeing/kayaking/archery/bike riding/horse back riding/a carriage ride and full service marina provided by Sammy Duvall with sea-raycers and pontoon boat rentals.

Disney's Fort Wilderness is a Magic Kingdom Resort Property. With easy access to the Magic Kingdom, guests also have complimentary use of Disney's Transportation system with buses running daily every 20-30 min (depending on time of year-sometimes it can be later due to peak times of the parks). Use the Internal Bus transportation within the Campground for easy access back to your campsite & Cabin. Guests can go to the Outpost Bus Stop to board the desired bus.

Fort Wilderness campground also has golf cart rentals. If you are visiting during the holidays of Halloween/Christmas, guests can enjoy being apart of a family and "disney geek" favorite of their annual golf cart parades. Guests who are regulars go "all-out" decorating the golf carts as well as their campsites..many guests enjoy the wonderful decorations that illuminate at night by touring the loops.

Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is one of our favorite resorts in Disney. We have many GREAT friends that we have met there between Cast Members and other Campers that we call Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground our second home,it doesn't feel right when stay elsewhere...being free to roam under the cypress trees and pines especially at night gives us its own thrill ride when out venturing in the golf cart at night , very spooky and hearing the strange sounds....

Call us today for great rates whether you want to stay in a Wilderness cabin or would like to rent a Camper or RV, we have GREAT and RELIABLE vendors that are a part of the Making Magical Vacations Team that are family and Disney friendly.
