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.

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.

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.

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.

What can you say about Disney. Very few campgrounds even come close to this. Stayed for a week, love the decorations for Halloween. Love the transportation system. Stayed in the parks, never had to use the car. Some might say it a little pricey but when you think about what you get in return I think this place is great.

Disney sets the standards in the ultimate RV park. All the sites are paved and easy to pull into. The restrooms are always clean. They have a great dog park and the transportation to the parks makes going places easy.

My only complaint is the lack of channels on their cable - considering how much they charge I don't understand why they don't include more channels; on the other hand we're rarely watching the TV. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We made a special trip to visit some of the acts and rides that are being closed in Epcot. Don't get me started on the power of Frozen, it is taking over Walt Disney World. This was our third stay at Fort Wilderness and it never disappoints. All of the activities are top notch and the staff is friendly and helpful. The Bus system is key to getting the most out of your day. Of course we will be back. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

What can I say, it's Disney! Beautiful park, facilities were spotless and the "Cast members" always friendly. It's a bit pricy for an RV park but you're just a boat ride from the Kingdom. Getting to any of the other parks/hotels can take some time. And like I said, it's Disney! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our third trip to Fort Wilderness, and we still love it. I did notice that the trees and shrubs are getting heavier and could use a good pruning to keep access to the full site available. While pricey overall, the Disney experience is well worth the cost. I will return. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

What can I say, but I love Fort Wilderness it's Disney. They have the cleanest and nicest comfort stations than any I have seen. The laundry facilities are top notch. The resort has canoe rentals, fishing, shuffleboard, 2 pools, bike rentals, camp fire and movie every night, golf cart rental, pontoon boat rental and water sprite rental. Bus transportation to all the parks. Buffet restaurant (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Take out menu. Two camp stores. What's not to like"?
