Very woodsy, but well separated sites. No need for a car, as all transportation is at your door. Very well maintained, plus a nice area for the dog to run. We were not disappointed. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

As most other posts have indicated, this campground is done in true "Disney" fashion - the setting is beautiful, stores are reasonably well stocked (I really didn't find the prices that high, considering it's in a prime tourist area), washrooms were beautiful, laundry rooms had everything you'd need to get your laundry done. Although it is a large campground, we didn't get the feeling that we were in a huge park. Check in was a bit slow, but we arrived the same time as 5 others. Although we arrived before normal check-in time we were given a site right away and were able to head off to the theme parks. We were situated in the 800 section and had no problems getting around on foot (or bike). When we used the bus we just drove our truck up to the front bus pick-up and left the truck in the parking lot. One thing I would recommend that is not directly connected to the campground is the "Magic Your Way Dining Plan". We purchased this plan because we knew we wouldn't want to head back to the trailer to eat. It was well worth it - it cost about $700 for our family of 4, however, the actual cost of the snacks and meals we got through the plan was about $900. You could literally go to the park with just your Magic Your Way card and still be able to get drinks, ice cream, meals, etc. We ended up getting food for the road on our last day because we hadn't used up all of our snack and meal coupons. We had never stayed on Disney property before, but we'll return to Fort Wilderness Campground the next time we go to Disney. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Being "on-property" at Walt Disney World is worth a lot. Ft. Wilderness is so convenient to all of Disney's theme parks; and, Magic Kingdom is just a short boat ride away from the Settlement. The campground is as old as WDW, 35 years. And, there has not been much improvement for RV's, as they continue to get bigger, with more slide-outs. However, we manage to get our 45' motor home, with some tight maneuvering, into some very nice sites. We return at least twice a year; not just for the campground, but for WDW itself. The staff, or cast members, at Ft. Wilderness have been just super in helping us to get 'just the right' site. Mickey has had us hooked since Walt's Sunday night TV show. We'll continue to go back, since we're just 'kids at heart. Forget the hassles at check-in, Ft. Wilderness is just part of the wonderful Disney experience. And, if you haven't been to SOARIN' at Epcot, you haven't been to WDW. Why a 8, and not a 10? We keep waiting for Disney's Global Management to realize that they really MUST improve Ft. Wilderness. The Loop roads really are much too narrow, and there are too many obstacles very close to the sites. Pets are restricted to a certain few loops, and an additional fee per day is charged per pet. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Okay this is Disney folks, and this is the best campground I've ever been to. The sites aren't too large, but there are rabbits, etc. all over the place even with over 1000 camp sites there. They have every amenity and the shower/bathhouse is like a luxury hotel. It is a big place, and some people rent golf carts for their stay, but bikes will do just as well. It's really beautiful with a ton of landscaping and of course, just a boat or bus ride to any of the Disney parks. We are coming back this spring break, and although it was pretty crowded, the people are friendly and helpful and the food at the restaurant is great! Can't wait to go back soon. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is one of my favorites. The grounds are always clean, as are the bath houses. The roads and sites are all paved. The campers with pets are separate from the campers without pets. Also, the pets are only allowed in the pet loops. The cast members are always helpful and friendly. There are a lot of activities in the campground itself including a nightly campfire and sing-a-long. The campground is very large and golf carts are available to rent. My only complaint is that the sites can be very difficult to back into. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We heard nothing but great things about this campground. After arriving we found it VERY overrated and VERY VERY over priced. We stayed in the 'pet loop'. The sites are set up rather odd. Typically you have an area on the curb side of your rv for a picnic table etc, but our site had that area BEHIND our motor home. Our site was small, we could not open our awning, was not very private and shrubs separating the sites where thin or missing. There where no shrubs directly behind our site - just a direct view of the main road behind us. The road in the 'pet loop' is VERY narrow with tree limbs over hanging the road that rubbed the roof of our motor home. Backing in a 38 foot motor home is difficult. The in ground trash can made it VERY difficult to back into our site. You won't get treated better anywhere else, after all it is 'Disney'. But with that being said we have been to much nicer campgrounds. Now I can say 'Been there - done that'. We see no need to return. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Most of the above reviews were very accurate. Some of the loops were very tight and hard to get a large unit into and out of. A 5th wheel in front of us broke out a window on a tree branch trying to drive down their loop. We have a 34ft travel trailer and we could not open both our slides and our awning. The camp ground was not full, so they gave us several different sites to check out and after our 3rd site, we found a great site. For whatever reason, the 1600/1700/1800/1900 loops pads are not level to the ground. The four of us all tripped at least once during our 7 day stay. Over all, Disney?s camp ground was a great place. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the most beautiful campgrounds our family has ever camped at but I feel that what makes the campground so beautiful is the attention to detail from the people who work there. Everyone was very, very helpful and friendly and seemed to take a great deal of pride in their work. One park employee gave us a lift in his golf cart so we would not miss our breakfast reservations when the bus was late to pick us up. The Trails End Restaurant is one of the best in Disney and it is also a good value for a Disney restaurant. Do not miss the nightly parade on the water at 9:45 p.m. or the fireworks show that follows the parade. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

All in all a great campground and the other reviews sum up the good pretty well. But here's my gripe. Disney makes a fortune on this campground and they do a good job with it. However, the loop roads are very narrow and the have many trashcans, site markers, elec. boxes, etc. along the sides of the roads making access to many sites very difficult. During our stay we saw several other folks having a terrible time trying to get into their sites. Disney should spend a few of their millions and make site access easier.

Very nice campground. We stayed in the 500 loop and it was very quiet. Our site (532) was very hard to back into since it was at a 90 degree angle from the loop. Sites were very clean. Staff was more than helpful. Many activities to do at the campground. Great trails to bike on. Trails End is a great buffet to eat at. Poor circulation in the creeks and lakes made the water green. Used the high speed internet at the campsite for $9.95 a day and it worked fine. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is top notch! Clean, shady campsites with concrete pads as well as a sandy area if you are a tent camper. Restrooms were immaculate! They have a great campfire program with Chip and Dale and a Disney movie each night. Game room, pools and beach activities. There is too much to mention! I would definitely put this park on your place to stay! We will definitely be back and are planning a trip this year. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Spent a week on a family vacation to hit the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Downtown Disney. Good experience all around and saw everthing from tents to 40' Class A rigs. We were in the 1700 loop (pet loop) and had no problems getting around on the bus, boats, or by truck. We thought about a golf cart, but decided against spending $50 a day for it. Noticed a couple campers showed up and had issues with the utilities layout at some sites. Make sure you have an extra drinking water hose, extra sewer hose, and an electrical hookup extension. Two folks had to move their rigs off the concrete pad just to get the electric connected. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I'm giving this campground a 9 because of the site we were in. Our site seemed to be one of the very few that when you stepped off the concrete slab, there was about a 5-6 inch drop. The sites around us looked as if the slab was even with the ground. This is my only complaint..we had a great time camping here. All cast members were nice & helpful with the exception of 2 bus drivers. I do know next time not to buy tickets for so many days @ the parks because there is alot going on at the campground that we didn't get to on this trip. I highly recommend the HOOP DE DOO REVUE, it was an excellent dinner show. This was everything I expected from Disney and a tad more!!

Of course, a very nice park - all the amenities - sewer, paved pads, 2 pools, nice camp stores, inside-the-park transportation, modern well-maintained bathhouses. I was a little disappointed that the landscaping was not better maintained (nice had it been a state park, but not what I was expecting from Disney). No big deal, this is still the place to camp if you're doing Disney. Take the free boat to and from the Majic Kingdom. We had a great experience.

As noted earlier anyone can find anything wrong with anyplace. I was born in South Florida and lived here for all 37 years, I have stayed at Fort Wilderness 100+ times, however our last few experiences have changed our minds as to where we will be staying. We arrived @ 9pm with no one at the gate to register us, or tell us we needed to come inside, all signs stated pull forward, we were met by security at the first gate who failed to tell us to go inside. 15 minutes of sitting they finally came out and asked us if we wanted to set the camper up in the drive thru! We registered and were supposed to be in the same loop as 5 other campers, guaranteed with an additioal cost to us, didn't happen. We were told to set up our Pop-Up and move in the morning which was unacceptable. They finally decided to give us a cabin which was nice but everything was packed in the Pop-Up. While waiting for this we moved out of the drive thru and watched a man pull his 5th Wheel thru the drive thru. We were standing there with 2 Disney employees as the man drove into a hanging sign putting a hole in the roof of his camper and almost removing his A/C unit. Neither Disney employee said a word, we the guests had to stop him. While there we went to the Trading Post and were followed as though we were common criminals, we confronted the clerk and she acknowledged our complaint. They were tailing my 3 year old daughter. Other than that we had fun! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.
