This was our first trip to Disney. Everything about the campground was fantastic. I only give it a 9 because of the area immediately surrounding the campsite which is a bit swamp like, but overall the campground is fabulous. Everything from check-in to check-out was smooth. There is so much to do at the campground, it's almost worth taking a day off from the parks to stay at the campground. We went to the sing-a-long and outdoor movie with Chip and Dale, watched fire works from the beach, and saw the Hoop-Dee-Doo Review. We will make this at least a yearly destination. Highly recommend. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We camped in the 2000 loop, which was kind of far away from everything, but we were by the Group Camping area that has a short cut bridge to the Meadows Trading Post, which helped. Sand pad for the tent was approx 34 x 20, with an additional 15 x 10 "L" with the charcoal grill. Lots to do, tennis, pool (kind of showing it's age)basketball, pony and trail rides and much more. Leave at least one day to just play around the campground. This campground is HUGE. Bring your bikes. We did get a golf cart the last few days for something new, but they are $50 a day. Internal buses were slow, and external were either very GOOD or very BAD. There seemed to be no middle ground. Everything is very clean and immaculate as only Disney can make it. We loved it and we'll be back! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent.

This is truly the top of all campgrounds. The campground is beautiful with gorgeous flowers and landscaping. The campground and sites are well maintained and the bathrooms & showers were immaculate. This was our family’s first trip to the campground in our RV. We are planning another Disney trip but next visit will dedicate more time just relaxing and enjoying the campground. Would rate this park well past a 10! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We have visited this campground over 40 times in the last few years. The campsites are very clean although some are very close to each other. There are several activities for the entire family including horseback riding and wagon rides. Transportation is available to all of the theme parks but you do not have to visit the parks to enjoy your stay here. This is our favorite family campground and we will continue to visit often in the years to come. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Fantastic campground. Bathhouses were pristine. The staff was very vice. We stayed in the 1400 loop which was very convenient to the campfire site and theater. Will stay here again when kids get older. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This was our second visit to Fort Wilderness. The campground is beautiful. The staff was very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We especially liked the Hoop Dee Doo Revue. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our 5th stay at Fort Wilderness in the past 25 years. Since the hurricanes came through in '04 they have removed a lot of trees, shrubs, etc. It opens up the park and took away some of the privacy there use to be between sites and the buffers to the road. I did see a lot of planting going on so hopefully some buffer to the roads will be there before long. As always we stayed in one of the outer loops - much roomier. We had no problem getting our 38 ft MH into our site except for the fellow across from us who had is big dually sitting out in the road. Otherwise, pretty easy in and out. Overpriced, but it is Disney and the ability to stay on the premises is well worth it. I wish the theme parks were as well taken care of as the RV park - we may not be back because of the lack of cleanliness in the theme parks. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

I admit, after reading some of the reviews prior to staying here, I was wondering if I was making the right choice. Yes, spaces were sometimes tight, but if you know what you're doing, you should have no problem. The amenities were first class, the campground was beautiful and the people & staff are VERY friendly. Yes, it's expensive - but it's Disney! I'd stay again. Oh yeah - they're expanding the width and length of most of the site, and trimming back trees and utilities near the loop roads - there is already a LOT more room in some of the loops.

Staying at the WDW campground has both its advantages the problems. With today's larger RVs and trucks, the narrow roads in each loop can cause problems and even disaster. Our request for a site close to the 'comfort station' in premium loop 300 was granted. The road (even in this premium loop) was so narrow, to get into our site we had to ask a neighboring camper to move his truck to get the angle to more in (see a previous review for a similar problem). Staying at mom & pop RV parks on our travels to WDW, we had free Wi-Fi. However WDW cannot even offer Tengo internet service at your site like some parks do for $4.95/24 hours (all 24!). Instead for Wi-Fi, you must go to 1 of 3 sites in the campground for dawn to dusk service for $9.95 for 24 hr fee (but you can't use it for 24 hr), but with our Vista program, that even wasn't possible. No wonder many people in the campground who winter there use a server with a local dial-up phone number at a specific location; slow but even better than paying a $125 deposit for modem equipment which is available for use at your site. If you stay for a long period, you will need to do laundry: another WDW rip off for $2/ea for wash or dry ($1.25-$1.50 in other parks). We also checked out golf cart rental: $50/day! No wonder many people who come regularly bring their own cart and that we did not rent one (in a 14 day stay, we could have owned the cart!) If you want to do early MK hours and take the boat across, allow at least 45 minutes to catch the bus (this means be out to stop by 7 a.m.) as we waited 30 minutes, missed the boat and missed the early open. The only advantages we found were the transportation when it worked and we chose to use, the extra magic hours for WDW resort users, not paying for parking at a park when we chose to drive, and the cable TV for use in the evenings. Our rate was during the value season with tax and an extra $5/day for our dog (was that for the waste bags?). As we live on the west coast, it will be many years before we return to WDW. As for it being a favorite park, we ranked Florida State parks for beauty and relaxation much higher than WDW. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

By far this is my favorite campground ever! We love everything about this place. We are Disney freaks and Fort Wilderness is a beautiful campground. The sites are spacious and the cleanest we have ever seen. The opportunity to rent golf carts and bikes is wonderful. We love being able to catch the boat to the Magic Kingdom. I can't say enough good things about this campground. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Park is OK. Looks like they are clearing a lot of brush in our loop: 1900, so it is not very attractive. Other loops might be nicer? Tight, tight. Blacktop pads but no room for any furniture, picnic table, etc. Very narrow sites. When stepping out of the rig you step on dirt. Dirt area behind rig for table, maybe. No Wi-Fi, no cable TV in our loop. I've been in better for the price. Charged an outrageous $5.00 per dog per night. I wonder what that money is for? Everyone picked up after their dog so what's with the charge? Not easy to get around in the Disney area unless you use their transportation. To get from the campground to the Magic Kingdom parking lot you need to drive a long way. Overall, it's good if you are going to the Disney attractions, but little else. Would stay hear again if forced to. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very $$$$$. However, you pay for what you get. Clean restrooms/showers, landscaping, sites groomed,1/2 paved, sing alongs, movies, easy access to the park and I mean very easy. Has nice workers, tennis, heated pool, very large grounds, and many activities. We went over Christmas: the sites were decorated very pretty. There were a total of 20 of us in our party on five seperate sites. 2 sites in 300 section 3 sites in 1200-1300 section all sites were great. I had no trouble getting into site 305 with a 30 footer. Every one in our party will go back. However book now if you want to get in. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We're back for our third trip to Ft Wilderness. I was looking forward to this trip as this was our favorite campground in six months of traveling across the country with our children. This time our experience has not been so good. We have gotten a dog since our last trip here. This means your selection of sites is very limited. If you have reserved preferred they will not let you downgrade to a non-preferred site even if it will accommodate your size better. The sites are extremely tight for a big motorhome unless you are in the 700 loop or just get lucky. We changed sites (which we simply parked in after not being able to get into the original site we were assigned). The trees and the concrete tree stump containing the electrical are so close that we ended up scraping the tail of our motorhome trying to get out (I'm sure adding several thousand dollars to the cost of our vacation.) Mea culpa, I made the mistake of letting the neighbors help direct my husband out of the old site while I parked the car on the new site. We struggled to get into the new site which had seemed large enough judging by the size of the pad. Again it was tight because of the narrow street, the trees and the large concrete utility post. We had to ask the neighbor to move his truck so we could get in. Hopefully no one will be in that site across the street when we get ready to leave or I guess we will be here forever. That or Disney will have to take down a tree. I think Disney is all about cramming people in and they don't really take much time to accommodate you to your site. They also trap you if you have a pet. One of the things I really enjoyed about this campground last time was taking long walks and bike rides. I was looking forward to this, but you cannot take your dog to walk outside the pet trails, which are not all that long. This means no walking on the long main roads. I could understand not going into the non-pet camping loops, but it seems kind of extreme to not be able to walk your dog on the sidewalks of the main streets. I really enjoy Disney and the accessibility of the campground to the parks. But I will probably not come back until they get more of the park up to modern standards - ie 50 amps, full cable, larger pads. I will definitely exaggerate the size of our motorhome when making the next reservation. I think they will squeeze you into the tiniest spot they can justify if you don't. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
