I have done Fort Wilderness since I was a little kid.
Easily one of the nicest campgrounds in Florida.
I highly recommend the golf cart. We would dang near kill the battery daily. Since I live in Florida and go to the theme parks often, when I go to Disney World's Fort Wilderness, I tend to stay more at the campground than the parks.
I agree with previous posts, lots of friendly campers, movies at night, seeing all the rigs, and pool time. The buses are nice, but take time you could be doing something else. LOL
We play a game, count the Forest Rivers or how many states are represented. Also, late night trip to the store for an ice cream bar.
I envy the people that have toy haulers and can bring a golf cart with them, but wouldn't trade my rig for another!
P.S. Don't forget about the Fireworks from the beach!!!! AWESOME!

Thanks for the tip on her hoopdee thing....I have my confirmation number so they said I can start pre booking now. Didn't buy tickets yet waiting for the deals....

I was going to leave the dog behind....not sure I wanted the worry and extra work of having him along, or taking him but boarding down there a few days. Well behaved German shepherd.

Lots of good suggestions so thank you. Not worried backing in actually....compared to my 35' travel trailer toy hauler this 364 is a piece of cake. Mirrors you can actually see something useful in and a camera too. Only backed into 2 sites so far and no pressure...I'm sure game time will add some fun
We brought our three dogs with us and had a premium site in the 500 (IIRC) loop. It was a very short (like 3 minutes) walk to the off-leash dog park.

There is also a Disney boarding facility on the Disney property. We didn't use it so I can't tell you about the price.

We did the All-you-can-eat breakfast buffet- didn't think it was worth it though.

We did like the on-site pizza place- I think it was like $12 for a pizza. Cheap, quick way to feed the whole family for those nights when you don't want to cook!

Here is the link for the golf cart rental( not Disney's) if on other sites that discuss Disney a lot do not broadcast his method as the less know the better for him and us trying to save money. Home

Have been there three times in the last 6 years. Really don't need a golf cart. Disney has free transportation within the fort wilderness resort and between all their properties. We never waited more than 10 minutes or so at any trolly, bus, train or riverboat stop.

Use the Fast Pass reservation system for the attractions. Reserve early as numbers for each time-frame are limited.

We've been with and without a golf cart. Really enjoy having a cart and missed it when we didn't.

I called Kenny today for a golf cart reservation but was closed so will get that set up tomorrow hopefully. I didn't buy any tickets yet as in waiting to see what deals come on for September.

Probably just doing 2 days in the parks...maybe do sea world and have heard the Richard petty nascar driving is really fun...

I you tubed hoop de doo for wife and she thought it looked boring. I figured about 250 bucks for us to eat that meal so I agreed with her .
