Here's a great website for the Fort. www.fortfiends.net

You can have a campfire if you have a fully enclosed firepit and there are no burning restrictions, iirc.

we stayed at ft wilderness march a year ago. the newer accommodations are more expensive. the next price down accommodated us nicely. we were at the first site to the right as u go into that camping area. we were next to the bath house. i turned left down the wrong way and backed right in. only problem i had was someone in a golf cart darted into the space as i was backing. the neighbor was watching and pointed to me backing. they left promptly. price was $92-97/night. thought it was rather pricey.
i ask one of the other campers the difference between the most expensive and what i settled for. only difference was the more expensive one was newer. we both had adequate room, 50 amp, and sewer. fewer trees in the new one.
if ur not familiar with Disney, when u park is abt the last time u will need ur vehicle until u leave. all transportation is provided within and to and from the parks. i would recommend the meal plain. we were told abt it form some seasoned Disney patrons.
we were late arrivals (abt 8pm) and didn't have any problems. when we left, i went out to buy diesel early and the gates weren't open when i got back. had a vender behind me and he backed up and went around the building to the right and in. i followed him.
we enjoyed it. can't see how people are able to make it home during the winter. price wise.

If you know a disney employee they can get you a spot for half price - when I do my trip in August it is only costing me $40 a night for two nights.
just throwing that out there.

I think any site for more then $50 to $75 a night is pricey and takes away from other trips so recently I have been going to the state and federal parks cause the cost is pretty cheap and a descent place as well.

Ditto that, I invested in a trailer to camp cheap, not to pay premium prices

Well I dont camp like this every time... i do have 2 small children and we love Disney. if I stayed at a Disney hotel with a kitchen etc, it would be around $400/night, so guess it may not be "cheap" but sure is MUCH cheaper i get all the advantages of staying on property like transportation and early park entry.

We go to Disney every other year. With a family of 7, camping is still cheaper for us then the Disney resorts because they can't accomodate us in a Moderate or Value unless we get two rooms, or the family suite.

We'll be there 12/17-12/27 this year.

I know the disney hotels are expensive on top of the issue you have to pay to park in the hotels parking lot on top of the the room charge.

ssometimes it is cheaper to be in the camper then a hotel room especially when you have a crew with you.

I understand the once a year camping trip you are going to spend a little more then your usual weekend trips - I was just saying that since I am close to alot of state parks - I would rather camp there cheaper then the private owned sites
