Just booked at the Ft for November. Got a better price when I called Disney compared to the online rate that came up when I tried to book myself. This will be our first trip to FL. Just got our Sp-240 and have not taken it out yet. Hope we are not being too adventures.

Too adventurous!!! Nope, y'all doing it right...have fun as you countdown the months and get a few small trips in before the Fort

We got a spot at the Fort during the last week of March. A little sticker shock as it will be the highest price per night we ever paid $108. Cant wait to get Rooby out of storage though and drive the 1,000 miles from Cleveland.

Thanks everyone! This what I figured by using Google Maps for distance and mileage I get in my Avalanche towing the Grey Wolf. It looks like it would cost me around $550.

The only thing is it does not save me anything over the family suite in on of Disney's Value Resorts.

Decisions decisions?

We've stayed at the All-Stars resorts(value) and at a few of the top end resorts. If I had my choice, I would take my camper. Have never stayed at Ft Wilderness, but it has to be great. Is your cost on fuel above and beyond what you would already be spending driving there?

No did not figure that into the equation. Something to think about.

Something else to consider, most days you would be eating at least breakfast in your camper, which would save also. Breakfast with Mickey is always a hit, but you need reservations quite a bit in advance. Next time we go, we will definitely be taking our camper, even if cost wasn't an issue.

Remember if you have the camper you can make your meals (disney allows you to bring your own food and snacks into parks). You will likely not have a full kitchen in a reasonably priced room making you spend more money on food if staying at the hotel.
