This is our second visit to Disney in 3 years. This is Disney and everything was in tip top shape. Clean bathrooms, well stocked and maintained laundry area, well stocked and maintained outposts. Our site was surrounded by tall pines, which afforded NO mid-day shade. All utilites worked fine and were well located. Site was long, wide, level and paved. Staff is VERY friendly and go out their way to help. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Too much to do here. We camped from Thursday to Thursday, weather was very hot with a couple of days of thunder storms. Use ground transportation around the campground and use your own vehicle to explore some of the other parks.

Stayed for 4 nights (Mon-Thurs)not our first time. Sites are paved, large, shaded. If you book online, there is nowhere to enter rig size but you can enter this in the note section. We have a big rig, so when we arrived we asked the attendant if the site was easy to get into and she said "no, it says difficult back-in" so we asked for an easy back-in site and she was accommodating. The park had many empty sites when we arrived and during our stay. All sites are back-in, some are difficult if your rig is big. The sites and facilities are clean with bike trails, laundry, pool, dog park, plenty of garbage containers. We had good wifi and tv reception. You do not need to bring a vehicle if you stay on Disney property as the transportation is excellent. Golf cart rental is also available. In fact if you get tired of going to the parks, you can find plenty to do at the campground with horseback riding, campfire programs, Segway tours, swimming, boating, etc. Love staying here! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Make sure to ask if site is easy back-in if your rig is big. 700 loop is convenient to boat launch, restaurant.

I am combining 2 visits to the campground separated by the 4 day Disney cruise.
We stayed in Ft Wilderness for 5 days before going on the Disney cruise. The park is typically what you would expect from Disney. They try to do a good job but I think that they are getting to big to provide the premium service you would expect to get for the money paid and associate with the Disney name.
We stayed here to prep for a follow up visit with our kids after the cruise. We booked 3 sites a year in advance to ensure that we would have 3 sites together. We were very disappointed with the answers we were getting about site assignment since the campground told us they do not assign a site until the day of arrival and we were worried that we would end up in 3 different loops plus we were renting 2 campers from an outside company and they needed the site numbers to deliver our kids campers. We had to fight tooth and nail to get the 3 sites together and the numbers of those sites. We ended up getting them late and the campers were not set up until around 3 pm.
Other than this problem everything in the campground was great and convienent to the other Disney parks. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Second time here at Fort Wilderness campground. Expensive, but cheaper than a hotel/motel and convenient to Disney World. Brought our own golf cart. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a fabulous campground... And a MUST if going to DisneyWorld. Sites are level cement with patios. Sites are large enough for big rigs and truck/tow vehicles. Service is incredible. No need to drive anywhere; Disney provides all the transportation to all the parks. In typical Disney fashion, the campground itself has lots of activities - pool, hot tub, shows, campfires, outdoor movies, clubs, restaurants, bars, stores, water craft (powered and canoe/kayaks), etc. It's very quiet and feels "wilderness" with trees, etc. between sites. Deer and wild turkeys were seen in the area. Trash is picked up multiple times/day. Laundry and restrooms are spread throughout the camp. Lots of walking and biking trails. Golf carts for rent. It's on the lake - Disney provides boats to Magic Kingdom. Everything here is top quality. We did not want to leave! And we'll definitely be back! Truly the best place we've ever stayed! Only complaint - no WIFI. But we were told they've tried to install 2 prior methods - which didn't work due to trees, etc. They are in process of trying a 3rd approach, so there's hope for the future. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Disney transports to all the parks - by boat to Magic Kingdom and bus to others. Truly magical place!

The main thing going for this park is that it is Disney. It is kept very clean, but isn't well suited to larger rigs. In order to fit our motorhome into our site, we had to have a vehicle across the road moved out of the way. It was nearly as difficult to leave.
On the plus side, the sites are nicely landscaped with plenty of shade.
There is no Wi-Fi available in the camping area.
The price is frankly outrageous, but again, it is Disney. It is a short walk to the Disney shuttle buses. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

What a wonderful experience! Disney is known for always going above and beyond in everything they do, and that holds true with Fort Wilderness. This campground is by far THE BEST I have ever stayed at, the staff is wonderful, the campground layout is awesome, and there are so many activities that I could return for years to come and still not experience everything. The campsites are very clean and very big! Plenty of parking either at your site or in the overflow parking. I highly recommend renting a golf cart while you are there if you don't own one, it will make your experience that much better! Truly an awesome campground that I will be returning to again and again! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Simply the best! One could complain about high price, and no wifi, but how can you when everything else is so perfect! This is probably about our 50th visit and we are addicted to this place! And--- we will be back! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

I honestly was very disappointed with our site and our stay. Having stayed in several Disney resorts over the years, and now owning an RV, I expected the same level of quality and cleanliness previously experienced. Upon arrival our site was not clean, littered with bottle caps, cigarette butts and branches. We were on loop 200 and all sites were crowded and very sandy. WiFi didn't work at all! Meadows pool recently started closing at 8 pm, way too early. Ole Swimming hole was open late, in theory. The pool was closed the entire 7 nights of our stay I was told there was a mechanical issue. That happens so open Meadows later. Kids want to swim!! The common areas and grounds were much nicer than the sites we saw and more up to standards. Nice area to bike ride. Bus transportation was good. Boat transportation varied. Very long waits at times while other resorts were getting prompt boat service. I do like that large families can be accommodated here unlike many Disney resorts...(our group rented two sites however). We were told that other loops have much more space and did not experience the debris we did, but this is where we were placed and were told the park was full. When I voiced my concerns a manager said "give us another chance". I honestly would like to in the hopes that it would be a better experience, as overall there is a nice feel here. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
Trails End restaurant was enjoyed by all; kids, parents and grandparents.

Stayed on a Premium site. Our site had the hookups at the front of the site and luckily we have an extension for our power cord as our 35' coach cord could not reach. The water and cable connections also required an extension. We noticed this is not the case at all the sites however, we did not have a choice of the site we were given. Large coaches may have trouble backing in. A place to unhook a toad is limited. Over all, we'll be back. Once on site one does not need a car as shuttles are excellent for getting around all of Disney World. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
If you have not been to Disney before take time to review all the activities well ahead of time to plan out your stay and find out where each activity is located within a given area. Get the Disney World app and set up a fastpass for each days activity. Be sure to pick up a map at each area. Disney World is expensive and they do things right. Try to visit during off times as things can get very crowded during sometimes of the year.

This is our 4th stay at the Fort. Great park that is clean and each site has it's privacy. Transportation system to the parks is great. Lots to do just in RV park with a trading post in 2 locations with limited supplies. Stayed in 800 loop this trip and the site was easy to get into.

Very lush & varied landscaping. No wifi at the sites. Online reservation system antiquated, does not show available dates, around dates that are full. We were able to check in early at 8am. Loop roads are tight, making backing-in tricky. Best place to stay in and around Disney, driving to parks is faster than Disney transportation, park parking free for campers.

We actually stayed in October 2014 & May 2015, and have a planned stay in December 2016. What can you say, it Disney. I tried this place in 2014 and was hooked from the start. It is quiet, well spaced RV sites. Both times I have stayed there we were in the 800 loop. We rented a golf cart offsite, and have had a great time. Transportation to Magic Kingdom is by boat, and the other parks are by bus. There is a bus system internally in resort that will get you to were ever you wish to go. Gift Shops, Marina, Pools, and Restaurants are all top notch. Went to the shops and picked up a internet router and plugged this into my wireless router in the rv, so everyone had internet. Internet was great speed. TV is cable, and had plenty of channels. We had a premium site both times, and had plenty of room for two golf carts as we had 5 people in our site. Trash pick-up is everyday, so no smell. Bathhouses are spotless. Laundry facility is great with plenty of units. Site are fairly shaded. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
Recommend you rent a golf cart and bring your own wireless router.

We reserved a premium site in loop 700. On arrival, site was dirty and we had to clean up the trash and blow debris from concrete pad. It's hard to believe that a modern campground like Ft Wilderness doesn't have WiFi available at the site but they don't. Obviously it's a nice campground but not up to what you might expect from Disney. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Publix grocery stores 15 minutes away. You can use magic bands to open gate, even though lady might say you have to use card.univmd • December 2014
Downtown Disney - Use the Disney Transportation due to construction at the location. Trying to self park will take an additional hour.Borsky Family • May 2015
Many extra opportunities at The Fort for entertainment. be sure to leave some days to explore.BamaGradx2 • May 2015
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.Yeager • May 2015
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)jmcmanama • July 2015
Take time to explore the campground.SoonerMom • September 2015
Other than the theme parks, Fort Wilderness offers its own activities such as fishing, hiking (some nice trails), horseback riding, archery, campfires at night along with an outdoor movie, two nice swimming pools, and more. The trail between Fort Wilderness and Wilderness Lodge is a very nice walk. In addition, at night the Magic Kingdom fireworks and Electrical Water Pageant can be viewed from the beach.DJSamuel • October 2015
Disney World and all the other hotel restaurants!!MissingLinc • October 2015
Ride your bike to the Wilderness Lodge for use of their pool and amenities if you're looking for more adventure... you're free to do so. The bike ride is about 15 minutes. One could spend days within the campground and over at the Wilderness Lodge and be fully entertained.Jim and Ben • November 2015
Laundry takes credit cards and can be monitored by your smart phone. $3 for washer and $3 for dryer, newer machines. Interior bus transportation provided and was dependable Golf Cart rates were $65 a day Pony rides for kids under 48" $8acenorm • November 2015
Don't be afraid to drive to some of the parks. Your resort pass gets you in for free. Animal Kingdom is the farthest park and you will get there quicker by driving. The directional signs on property are very well placed to find your way around.KenAndrews • November 2015
For some free fun, take the boat over to the Contemporary, and take the Monorail to visit the high end hotels. From Magic Kingdom, you can take a bus to Boardwalk hotel and walk the boardwalk or rent a surrey bike. One of our favorite things to do it go to Downtown Disney, now called Disney Springs. Lots to do and see. ENJOY!!galbud • December 2015
If you have children take the boat to Magic Kingdom. Rent a golf cart to get around plus its fun.willie56 • December 2015
