It's Disney, so we knew going in that it wasn't going to be cheap. That said, the part is extremely clean and well maintained. If you have a bigger trailer or motorhome, it can be tricky to get into your spot due to the large trees, and narrow roads. We arrive at 10:00 AM got an early check in and set up before most of the sites filled up.

It is nice to be on the transportation system (boat and buses) so in my mind, that is what you are really paying for. Bath houses are super clean, and we enjoyed our weeklong stay. We will stay again! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have a golf cart, bring it. It is an extremely large park and it will help you get around in the park. They do rent golf carts, ($65 a day) or you can contact one of the many rental companies around Orlando and arrange to pick one up from them at around half the cost. (They cannot deliver them to FWC due to restrictions)

Third stay here. Simply the best campground which keeps us coming back. Bring your bikes as this is a big campground to move around in. Activities almost all day. Great pool,fishing, volleyball, basketball,beach,movies, sing along, marshmellow, you name it the Forts got it. Pool, beach, fish, poolside activities, We stay many days without even going to the parks.. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Huge concrete pad, grill, extra water hose. Great campground but you pay for it. Very large and clean, but if I could say one thing that could be improved was the lighting. Many of the lights didn't work. But this place is the real deal. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our second time to experience Fort Wilderness and we absolutely loved it. Check-in is efficient and the staff is top-notch. There is a bus system within the park that makes it easy to visit the shops, pools, playgrounds, restaurants, and other amenities within this large park. Likewise, transportation is provided from Fort Wilderness to other Disney locations. Each loop has a comfort station with showers and laundry. The washers and dryers now accept credit cards only--no cash. There are trash cans and recycling bins on each loop as well. The premium site was large and level with a picnic table. Free and paid activities within the resort include outdoor movies, crafts, pin trading, Segway tours, horseback riding, boating, and dinner shows. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Forget your anxiety and bring your RV to Fort Wilderness! Tolls coming south into Orlando were only $9.75 for my 4 axle rig. The park itself is very easy to navigate. I read the reviews and knew the premium sites would be right for us. We paid a little more but the space was worth it. Our large 60' concrete back-in was easily wide enough for the RV and picnic table plus two large vehicles. If you get the slightly cheaper standard sites, you'll have a sandy area for a tent too. For large rigs, premium is the way to go. We had no issues other than a 2 hour power outage during a storm. Disney washes each pad between campers and maintains the area extremely well. There's a $5 upcharge for pets. We were in loop 800 and loved it. Free Wi-Fi is available too if you put a deposit down for their cable modem. Both AT&T and Verizon had strong signals. Satellite TV is unlikely but Disney has adequate cable TV too. One caveat -- the mugs you buy to get drinks for your entire visit only work in Fort Wilderness, not in the parks. That wasn't clear before we laid down $16+ each for 5 mugs. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was defiantly not our first time using Fort Wilderness for our vacation. We usually stay here because it is much cheaper than staying at the hotels. We were in one of the premium loops and the campground was as good as it usually is. Considering that it's Disney it should come as no surprise that it was very clean and the staff were amazing. Overall I would completely recommend this campground to anyone planning to stay at or visit Disney World. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We had not visited Disneyworld for over 30 years. I made the reservations via phone with Disney. Had no idea as to site except being on "pet" circle, which cost $15 extra per night. Our site 1918, assigned at check-in, was quite a walk to the internal bus, then a ride to the Outpost to catch another bus to theme parks. Forty minutes each way to any theme park, so returning to the rv for dog walk or lunch is not feasible. Our three day park pass was only 2 1/2 days since check-in is 1 pm. Riding in a van, the driver said the best time to visit is 2nd half of January and all of February. Sites are small and utilities are adequate.

There is some separation between sites, but some are too small for big rig and tow vehicles. This park is too expensive unless all amenities are to be utilized. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Disney World really wants you to spend all your money on site. The show and dinner combination at Hoopeedo is $80 per adult. The only good value is lunch at a theme park. It is necessary to figure out the fast pass to avoid waiting in line for an hour at most newer venues. Everything is clean and everyone is friendly, but some more education is needed to enjoy the experience to the fullest.

This is only our second time here (previous trip 2008) and the kids enjoyed it. Our campsite was amazing (#541) and close to Pioneer Hall and water transport. We were only here for a weekend and there are so many things to do around the camp, we ran out of time. Visited the Tri-Circle D ranch near Pioneer hall to see where they keep the horses used at Magic Kingdom. We took a day trip, via water and bus transport to Downtown Disney. Glad we did with all the construction. Had dinner at the Hoop-Dee-Doo review - Kids and I loved it. Only downfall is no clear site selection unless you call ahead to check in and give specific needs - Dog, Awning, slides, etc. Some of the older rustic equipment is gone - Mouse Ear lamp posts. We will go back but for a longer stay in the future. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown Disney - Use the Disney Transportation due to construction at the location. Trying to self park will take an additional hour.

Third time back to this great place. It's Disney. Was on site 1832. Nice site with shade but sandy. Had a small concrete pad though. Prefer a premium site with a full concrete pad was not available at this time. Everything was great at the campsite in regards water, sewer, and electric. We will definitely be back.

Price per night as part of package for preferred pet loop site.

Check-in was efficient, staff is wonderful, and our site was ready when we arrived at 10 am. Advise using the 'online check-in' procedure on MyDisneyExperience as it speeds things up and you can specify an arrival time and make special requests. They'll try to have a site ready for you, even if it's before check-in time. We specified 300 loop as it's a pet loop close to the boat dock, and they were able to accommodate our request.

The campsite was well-sized and very clean. All utilities worked great. Use a pressure regulator for the water. There is no Wi-Fi, we used our hot-spots, but you can get a wired-modem at check-in if one is available. Backing in and pulling out were OK, but the road is narrow. There were a few times we noticed that we (or others) wouldn't have been able to pull their rigs out if we had been leaving as people weren't always very considerate of where they were parking their cars. The campground was very quiet at night (caveat; we were there during the week, schools in session so not a lot of families with kids staying there). Not sure about during the day as we were in the parks.

We drove to all parks except Magic Kingdom as we had to drop our dog off at doggy daycare at the onsite kennel. Highly recommend the kennel (Best Friends Pet Resort), they open at 7 and close 1 hour after the latest park hours. Recommend driving to DHS, AK, and Epcot, even if you aren't dropping off a pet. It's faster and more convenient than the buses, parking is free if you're a resort guest. Take the boat to MK.

We had a wonderful time and 'Disney Magic' was everywhere. Would definitely recommend. It's pricey but so worth it! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

900 loop site. One site from the bath house. Across the road from The Meadows area. Fort Wilderness is expensive but it comes with lots of amenities. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Many extra opportunities at The Fort for entertainment. be sure to leave some days to explore.

Stayed in a partial site for two weeks. Nice wooded sites, very level. This site was paved on the front end with a sand pad on the back end. All interior roads are paved. Electric and water hook-up were good, there is 20, 30 and 50 amp at every site. All site were back in sites, and most were very tight and would prove difficult with a larger rig. Bath houses were very modern and clean. Staff was very friendly and would see to every need. Lots to do in the campground, you would never have to go to the parks. My biggest grip is regarding wifi, there is none at the sites. For the price you pay, and these were off-season rates, it would be expected. Also, reservation system is outdated, you cannot reserve individual sites, and not all sites are created equal. Overall a great stay, and the park has excellent amenities, even if it is missing some of the basics. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is very tight for manuvering large RVs but can be done. I would get nothing but a Premium site for an RV. We asked for the 1300 loop and got it. In my opinion this was one of the better loops. You need a golf cart or bicycle to get around, the park is very large. Bus transportation for getting around Disney World is very good. For internet at the campsite you have to borrow a modem, free of charge, from the camp store. It is spliced in with the cable service and works well. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful campground with top notch amenities. This was our first stay here so we were not familiar with the sites. We were assigned a preferred site that was almost impossible to get into. Luckily 2 of our neighbors moved their vehicles and we managed to park. We barely managed to get our truck parked sideways out of the street. We have a 39' 5th wheel so next trip we will make sure we get a premium site which is much more spacious. Other than the site being too small we had a wonderful time the whole week.

Rate is for premium pet site. Taxes add about $18 additional per night. Excellent location. Checkin lady must have been new, forgot to give us parking passes, even though she said it was in folder. Went to office lady, and she was not very nice, probably overworked, condescending attitude. The online reservation system is antiquated, needs to be redone, will say no availability, when there is, and will not show dates available, like state park websites. Also no wifi at campsites. Beautiful campground. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Publix grocery stores 15 minutes away. You can use magic bands to open gate, even though lady might say you have to use card.
