How many days are you staying? The staff is really helpful and there's quite a bit to do in the park. Bring your wallet for sure.

Buses are reliable, we've done both meal plans and not, They work okay. When we were at the Fort we rented a golf cart...other than parking your truck at your site, there is NO parking anywhere in side the campground for vehicles other that golf carts. At pools, restaurants, shows, the ferry, etc. We drove ours every where our kids loved it. If you love to walk it won't be a problem. I don't mind walking, but that park is quite large.

We always go during the summer, it Rains just about everyday, sometimes a simple shower, sometimes a gully washer. I was surprised at how well the drained water out. Mosquito spray is needed, especially at night in the campground.

Have fun! Do a character breakfast, download the disney app. you can make reservations anytime.

Just Returned

Just returned from a week at Fort Wilderness. Great time, wonderful camp ground. Can be very tight in some loops. We were in the 500 loop. Some sites are difficult to back into. We have a 35' TT. Last time we were in the 300 loop. That is even tighter. Love the boat ride to Magic Kingdom no need to hassle with the buses. Food and wine festival going on at EPCOT. Be prepared to see deer, turkey, and armadillos. Have a great time.

We were there a few years ago! I wasn't impressed at all. We were in the 200 loop which is very tight with a 35 ft TT and 20 ft TV. The site was so-so. The campground was OK, think of it as a Yogi X10! But hardly worth the $$$$ per night. We had a pkg and i think I figured the site came to around $100 a night. I don't feel the need to want to go back.

Disney itself was nice, no need for the fast passes. The longest we waited was 45 minutes for a ride. The fast pass line was only about 10 minutes shorter.

Were you camping with kids? Grandchildren? It appeals to them and the things you can do with them. Did you go to any of the campground events? And part of the worth of the campground is it's on property. If it was stand alone out in the boonies then it would be expensive for just what is there.

If I could take the grandkids then I would go, rent a cart but just me and DW we can stay outside the park for a lot less. I like to go to Disney but it's more fun with kids. We took the kids often but just the two of us now, it's just not that much fun anymore.

Directions:
Take I-10 to I-75
I-75 to Fl Turnpike Exit 272 keep right onto ramp
Turn left onto SR-50 (Colonial Dr. West)
Turn right onto CR-535 (Winter Garden Vineland)
Road name changes to SR-535
Turn right on to Vista Blvd
Entrance will be on right after Bonnet Creek Parkway light (Well marked)

I would get on the 429 toll road south and take it to Western way(Disney exit) rather than SR 50/west colonial. This will keep you out of all the traffic until you get to Disney property. Much easier than the Orlando traffic. I live an hour from Disney and camp there all the time and this is the route I take as it is much easier.

Never understand why folks want to visit Mickey rat world. Plastic. Crowded. Expensive. Corporate. Why not visit the real Florida for about 20 bucks a night by staying at one of our state parks! Just got back from a week at Manatee Springs SP...a silent kayak float down that wonderous spring run and out onto the Suwanee River beats some stupid log flume ride any day. Your grand kids will forget Disney in a week, because it's phony and meaningless. They'll never forget a family of whitetail deer quietly strolling through your campsite at dusk, unafraid and welcoming...and the fact that you were there with them...and cared enough to show them something real.

Our family has done both worlds and enjoyed both worlds and one doesn't have to exclude the other. Disney himself loved nature and his studio made it's mark in the early days with dozens of nature films in theater and TV and won awards for them. That carried on to animals being lead actors in many of his films and cartoons and the theme parks showcasing animals and nature in all ways. It all works on many levels.

X2!

There is always a time for both types of vacations. Especially if you have little ones running with you.
