The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

At Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, it's time for the outdoor life, Disney style! Both parents and children alike will love staying in the very comfortable rustic-style cabins, surrounded by serene forest. Reminiscent of log dwellings from the pioneer days, special touches include vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and a private deck. Fishing, swimming, horseback riding, wagon rides, boating and cycling are just some of the exciting activities on offer. At night, gather round the campfire for a rousing sing-along, followed by a classic Disney film under the stars.

I grew up camping along the Oregon Coast, and since moving to FL (20 years ago), I can honestly say that Fort Wilderness helps me to not be so homesick!! The meticulous grounds keeping, immaculate bathrooms (well, usually, ... more on that later), the fiddle music playing softly in the background at the Settlement, the yummy BBQ at Trails End Restaurant, lagoons, bike trails, gift shops that have a rustic-look, and all of the decorated campsites are just “a few of my favorite things!” Oh and taking free boat rides to other resorts just for fun, and also riding around on our golf cart, as well as movies and fireworks at night are worth honorable mention too! And of course Chip and Dale pose for FREE pics at the campfire sing-a-longs each night too! And don’t forget the pool with water slide, games, and the arcade!! We have a BLAST here and wish we didn’t have to leave!! Please note, however, that the usually clean bathrooms were *not kept up well during our July stay. Every time we went, every time of day, it was obvious the cleaning crew were not doing their job. A staff member told me that they had recently switched cleaning crews! Shame! Profit is the main point for Disney—I get that. But don’t sacrifice quality and cleanliness in the process. Please use the crew that have always kept the bathrooms clean—and with smiles on their faces!! It’s these types of things that make or break a park! I still have 5-stars, because I am hoping that this problem is corrected, and overall, Ft Wilderness is still our happy place!.... Read less

Overall a nice resort. Obviously the highlight is Disney World. This review is for the RV park and not for Disney World.

Overall a nice resort. Obviously the highlight is Disney World. This review is for the RV park and not for Disney World. We had reserved one of the largest sites and it was level asphalt with a picnic bench. There was also room for our towed Jeep. We were never able to get our cable tv to work, we tried to call but kept getting the wrong extension, just gave up because we were here for Disney World not TV. The transportation. To the various Disney Resorts is free but can take a bit of time ... transferring from one bus to another while waiting up to 20 minutes for the next bus. We averaged about 1 hrs from our RV to the entrance to the various park entrances. We visited the pool one day and it was really nice, games for the kids. The weekend was crowded but we were still able to get chairs to sit near the pool. Our biggest complaint was the price of everything once inside the resort. I realize this is Disney but prices are about 50% higher than other resort prices... which are in turn 50% higher than regular prices... wash one load of laundry $3.00, other resorts $1.50-$2.00, sunscreen $15.00 ( Target $6.99 ), 6 pack bud light $16.00, (grocery store about $7.00)... this goes on for pretzels, soda, golf cart rentals, horse rides, etc... So make sure you have everything with you!! We arenot cheap just hate being taken advantage of... We had a really good meal at the BBQ take at $25.00 for a full rack of ribs with 2 sides, we were able to share it. Read less

If you like to camp this is a very nice campground. We stayed in loop 300 and had easy access to bus stop and short walk to boat bus to Magic Kingdom. This is a park that a golf cart is nice to have, but, not a must. We rented one for several days and missed it when we didn't have it. Makes getting around the campground much easier.

If you like to camp this is a very nice campground. We stayed in loop 300 and had easy access to bus stop and short walk to boat bus to Magic Kingdom. This is a park that a golf cart is nice to have, but, not a must. We rented one for several days and missed it when we didn't have it. Makes getting around the campground much easier. Buses run almost every 15 minutes so wait time is not long. The pool is nice and they have a child pool for the little ones. Lot of activities if you don't feel up to going to the parks. The bath house was 100 ft away and clean. As I stated this was our first time to camp at Disney and found we preferred this over staying at a resort. It was much more relaxing and not in a hurry. Not saying we didn't enjoy our resort stays, simply this was more relaxing. The grounds have very good security that stays out of sight,but, handles issues quickly. The only thing that was a little disappointing, were the food choices not what we were accustom to, but, that could be that most campers cook their own food. Overall, I highly recommend it,we are already planning our next trip. Read less

My husband and I recently camped at Fort Wilderness for the first time. (May 27 - June 1, 2019) We were assigned a site in the 1900 loop and it was great.

My husband and I recently camped at Fort Wilderness for the first time. (May 27 - June 1, 2019) We were assigned a site in the 1900 loop and it was great. Even though the sites are close together, it didn't feel crowded at all. The landscaping kept the site very private, The site was very clean and ready for us before 10:00am which was great since we spent the night at another campground in Orlando before heading to Disney World in the morning. On our first day we did have to wait a while for the internal bus to take us to the main bus station so after that we always rode our bicycles to the main stop. There was a rack to lock them up so no worries there. The campground facilities are extensive and very nice. Beautiful beach area with boat rentals, swimming pools, trails, horseback riding, etc...We both wished that we had more time to check them out. We have already decided that on our next trip we will not get park tickets for our entire stay, but plan on spending a couple of days just in the campground so that we can experience all it has to offer. Our only concern was that we were not given any campground maps or schedules when we arrived. Because we had done the pre-check-in, when we arrived we just checked in at the gate and they sent us straight to our campsite. It would have been great if that cast member had given us a copy of the event schedule and campground map when we arrived. We had to go over to the main office later to get that information. We had a great trip, the parks were enjoyable as always with fun rides and outstanding shows, and the campground was awesome. We can't wait for our next visit! Read less

We just spent a week here in June. The campground is great. Cable works good and water pressure is good. We were in a premium site but they are still pretty narrow (Site 1219).

We just spent a week here in June. The campground is great. Cable works good and water pressure is good. We were in a premium site but they are still pretty narrow (Site 1219). Practically had to jack knife the truck to get into the spot but other than that it was pretty good. Bath houses were very clean, vents above the showers hadn't been cleaned in 30 years but it was still very clean. Laundry facilities were very nice and you had to use your credit card, not a big deal, but you could use your Disney wrist band for every place in the park except the laundry area...no biggie I guess. Two great pools and you can catch the boat to go to Magic Kingdom. I would return that's how I measure every campground. I would not return to some of the Disney parks, that's another review coming (animal kingdom...). Oh! had to order something from Amazon, had to have it delivered to main desk, they charged me $6 handling fee, the part only cost $9 bucks, come on Disney it's not like I had a 65" TV delivered. I know the places to eat at the park are supposed to very good especially the breakfast, but I wasn't paying $125 for 4, that's just me. All and all we would return! Read less
