Fort Wilderness

Heading to Disney Thursday night for the weekend with the grandchildren. Always a good time for them and for grammy and grampy. Very relaxing campground if you want it to be. We will spend a little time in the parks also.

We usually go every February with our sons and their families. Always enjoy FW and the parks.

Sounds like a lot of fun.

Quick questions - Does Fort Wilderness fill up quickly and, if so, then how far in advance do you recommend to make reservations?

It usually depends on the time of year you want to go. Since we go during Presidents week, we make our reservations a year ahead. I think that if you want to go when school is in session, you may be able to get a reservation more easily and not have to make them very far in advance. Since they get cancellations all the time, if they are booked when you want to go just keep calling them back to see if a site became available.

For our Christmas trip, we had to make our reservations just before last Christmas.

Good to know. I thought a year or so might be required in peak season.

tmmar - Good suggestion to call often. Maybe I'll get lucky for March.

Call early in the morning. I was told that when they get a cancellation that it will show up in their system the next morning.

Good Luck!!
