The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

At Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground 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.

This is a nice, albeit crowded campground. I wish there were more signs, drawings, pictures, etc. with Disney or Disney characters. I did not even see "hidden" Mickey Mouse ears or anything (in posts, sidewalks, etc.). As in, you honestly would not know you were at a Disney resort unless you go to the campfire/s'mores time with Chip n Dale. Also,… Read more
This is a nice, albeit crowded campground. I wish there were more signs, drawings, pictures, etc. with Disney or Disney characters. I did not even see "hidden" Mickey Mouse ears or anything (in posts, sidewalks, etc.). As in, you honestly would not know you were at a Disney resort unless you go to the campfire/s'mores time with Chip n Dale. Also, the dog park was closed for renovation, which was a bummer. The only other bummer was how many times I got lost trying to get to (1) the bus depot at the front (2) the trading post store (3) the ferry dock -- they need more signs! Maybe with cute Disney characters?! We stayed in our RV and the RV parking spots designed in loops, so the center of the loop is sort of a shared back yard - which is good if you bring your dogs. It is mostly pine needles and dirt, not grass, but still it was convenient. If you learn nothing else from this review, RENT A GOLF CART! The roads in this resort are dominated by buses and golf carts. There are very few cars on the road and if you do drive your car, you will likely get stuck behind a golf cart (which top out at about 15 mph). Also, there are parking corrals everywhere for golf carts and the only parking for cars is at the entrance near the bus depot and at your individual spot. It was a nice RV park, just not "magical." I would have hoped to really feel like you were in a Disney property and instead it just felt like a nice, clean RV park. Read less

My son always wanted to camp so I decided to take a weekend out of our vacation and stay at the camp ground. The best part is the pool is heated and since we went in December we were able to be in the pool even though some of the days the temperature was down to the 60's. They have so much to do for kids. Love the pool slide...

You can use Disney transportation to reach any of the parks from Ft. Wilderness, and for the most part efficiently. We were there four days and went back and forth at least twice each day. One time the boat would not let us board, although there were people with luggage on seats or taking up more than one seat by putting their feet up, so we… Read more
You can use Disney transportation to reach any of the parks from Ft. Wilderness, and for the most part efficiently. We were there four days and went back and forth at least twice each day. One time the boat would not let us board, although there were people with luggage on seats or taking up more than one seat by putting their feet up, so we were delayed 35 minutes and once the bus to Epcot was really really late, but the rest of the time worked great. They have several pleasant pool complexes, and a tiny store with milk, bread, chips and snax. I think you can get grocieries delivered. Nice campground shows for the kids at night. Can take up to two dogs for a modest fee. Enjoyed staying there. Read less

This is probably the nicest campsite you will ever stay at. Bathrooms are spotless, workers are exceptionally friendly, the internal bus system takes you wherever you need to go. Sometimes we rent a golf cart to get around as at the end of the night it is nice to not wait for a bus, but it is not necessary to get a golf cart. VIP boat entrance… Read more

VIP boat entrance to magic kingdom is very convenient, you can watch the fireworks from the beach at the fort. The Hoop Dee Doo revue is worth the money. It is expensive compared to every other campsite on earth but if you compare it to staying at a hotel on disney property, you will see the prices are actually reasonable. Read less

It is well known that Disney makes you "have it their way". Don't even think about trying to do it any other way. We stayed at Ft. Wilderness many times back in the 1970s and 1980s. I thought it might be fun to relive some fond memories and do it again. I go to the website and try to find a campsite for 4 nights on days we are able to go. Every… Read more

I thought it might be fun to relive some fond memories and do it again. I go to the website and try to find a campsite for 4 nights on days we are able to go. Every time you click the "check availability", you get directed away from the campground, and to the resort hotel sites instead. This can't be right-I thought- so I call the reservations desk at WDW to find out what I am doing wrong. I am told that all you can do is enter the exact dates you want, and it will tell you if there is a space available (not whether the space is the type you need or not). You cannot even scroll the calendar to see what dates might be available- you have to put dates in first!? Every other site I have ever used lets you view an availability calendar- NOT DISNEY! It doesn't, as so many other travel sites do, suggest nearby dates when accommodations are available. Haven't been to WDW in more than 20 years- usually due to the fact that I can spend a week in Paris or Rome for the same or less money as a week at Disney. Add to that the frustration of dealing with their website, and I think I'll go check flights to Barcelona instead. Read less
