We've been to the Fort and other Disney resorts. We don't worry much if we Do or Don't see things. We go in to the parks when we want, not opening time for sure. Hop around from park to park. I understand the need to micromanage a trip like this but that's not for us. Don't expect discounts of any kind. We don't do any dining plans but do make dinner reservations. Get the golf cart, the park is big and the only parking places for cars/trucks outside your site is for golf carts only. The buses are more than adequate, if you're afraid you're gonna miss a bus, get up earlier, that's all. If you run into us there, we'll be the group walking slower than everyone else. Have Fun!

We are also ft wilderness fanatics.

Even as DVc members we donít get a discount on the campsite.

I like loop 400, 600, 1200 and 1400. Check YouTube for loop videos.

We stayed at creekfire rv resort in savanah on the way home north in August and loved it so much this will be our new all time stop when headed to the fort. Stay for two days though. Itís brand new and amenities are great. Also hit a great bbq joint called cracklin bs just 15 minutes away from the campground.

True. And thatís how I feel when we itís time to leave the fort. But it helps break up the travel day. The facilities are top notch though.

I paid 100 a night in myrtle beach once after paying 74 at the Fort.

We went to the Fort last November. They do not offer discounts for RV camping. Cabins are a different story. Like others said check in is when your site is ready. We stayed in the 100 loop. You are able to call and reserve up to three specific sites. This was our first time staying there and we love it. Also drive your car to the parks. Parking is free at the parks to Fort guest. The buses can take awhile to get to the parks and the longest drive we had from the Fort to a parking spot was 15 minutes. www.fortfiends.net is a good site for info. Also AllEars.Net - The Unofficial Disney Vacation Planning Guide - Walt Disney World, Disneyland and Disney Cruise Line is good too. The 100, 200, and 300 loops are close to the boats.

Been camping at Fort Wilderness for almost 30 years. Highly recommend taking bicycles. The best way to get around! Ride the nice paved path from the campground to the Ft
Wilderness Lodge. If you are quiet, almost always see deer and turkeys. A fun thing you might try is to find the hidden Mickeys at the
Wilderness Lodge. Ask any one that works there and they will tell you all about it. Ride around all the loops...so much fun. Take the boat to the Magic Kingdom entrance and then catch the resort monorail and do want we call the monorail loop, stopping at each hotel to check it out or have a drink. Maybe you’ll get lucky and see a wedding taking place at The Grand Floridian...we have seen several. Take the bus to Disney Springs...nice shops and good restaurants. You can see the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the beach by the campground marina.

As a military veteran I can get a good deal on the resorts but the rooms are really small besides I like staying in our camper. I can get a good deal on the tickets and I have tickets for this stay but will probably not get tickets next trip. Unless we take our granddaughter, she gets scared when she gets to close to the characters

If you are having trouble booking dates, try booking them one day at a time. We have done this and we were able to string together the dates we wanted. When we arrived we just had them link the many reservations and we were all set.
We have also been able to fill in when we arrived if we had a missing day in the middle. Just ask, they have a lot of last minute openings.( understandable , since you can cancel without penalty up to 5 days before your start day) We have also been able to change the type of campsite. We had multiples for a reservation , some were Full Hook up and others were Preferred, when we arrived we asked if we could combine and they made them all Preferred and only charged the Full Hook up rate. So, yes they don't have published discounts but sometimes they make deals at the last minute for that "Disney Magic".

Went this past summer. Really hot. Download the app "Fort Fiends" for pics of each site. It tells where the hookup is and how hard to back into it. Helped us pick a site. Had a list of sites we wanted and when we checked in, found one on our list that was available. Also best day to check in is on a Sunday. We stayed from a Friday to Wed. Most sites emptied on Sunday. Good luck and hope you enjoy it.
