Fort Wilderness Disney Resort

We just booked a week @ Disney World Fort Wilderness RV Resort, first time for us (65 and finally going), any advice on route or tips on the resort? We have already purchased the meal plan and fast passes.

We will be travelling from SE Louisiana in Feb (escaping Mardi Gras madness) first long trip with a 7 & 5 years old grandchildren.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

we just got back from an early october trip and had a blast. if you havent booked one already i highly recommend a golf cart rental i think ours was around 300 for the 5 days but well worth it. the CG is huge.

we initially booked a basic spot and were assured our 42.5 5ver would fit, but it didnt. there was no way i could get it into the spot with the narrow roads. they upgraded us to a premium at no cost.

we spent 1.5 days at magic kingdom, coming back to camp for lunch and dinner then back to park, allowed a nkce break and was alot easier on the pocket book. the castle chsnge over is a must see after the fireworks.

i was not a fan of the trip intially but can say i had a great time and there was nothing better then seeing the happines on my 9 year olds face

We've been to WDW about 8 times. Nov. '14 we drove the G-town from east-central IL and stayed at the Fort for the first time. I'll never stay in a brick & mortar again. The Fort is outstanding with "wild" turkeys EVERYWHERE on the grounds.
I agree WDW is a truck load of money, but for what it's worth, cast members fall all over themselves taking care of you. The only thing Mickey can't control is the weather, however, if it's raining or "too cold" the parks are empty and that's the time to hit the rides.
The price of a golf cart is rather high but if you get to go between Thanksgiving and Christmas, you need to rent one for a night and hit all of the loops to look at the decorations. We brought bicycles for the day time.

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)

We're paying 124/night for a premium spot...

Stiff, true; but well less then half the price of staying in a hotel on property; and they'll be more savings being able to eat "at home" rather then out 3 meals a day.

Plus it's nice to have some of your own comforts with you, rather then in a hotel.

Little one will be almost 6, I think her mind will be blown (it's going to be a surprise for her...)

If you drive just outside of the park to rt 192 you will find every conceivable restaurant you at half the cost of eating at Disney
