I don't have a bad thing to say about this campground. It is pricey - but is the best camping experience I've ever had. Would highly recommend it. I've stayed here two separate times and absolutely loved it. Clean washrooms, ice machines, laundry facilities, transportation to amusement parks, clean gravel sites. Campsites don't have fire pits, but there is a nightly group campfire and movie with Chip and Dale. Love, love, love! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

I am going to go against the grain with this review. We just got back yesterday (Nov. 2) and am really disappointed with the campground. I will say first of all that the campground and site were awesome. Campground beautiful and well kept (as expected at Disney World). But, my problems are with everything else. The bus system to the parks and other resorts are incredibly difficult to figure out. Nobody ever told us that it would be in our best interest to rent a golf cart. The staff didnt seem to be RVers themselves. The really good campgrounds across the country are owned and managed by real RVers that know the issues we will face and anticipate those. The staff had no empathy for camping issues. Another issue I had was the lack of camper related replacement parts or accessories in either of the trading posts. The bath houses had those stupid motion sensor sink faucets and no hot water so I couldnt shave. Next time we go to Disney we will be staying at an off property campground. Not worth the money.

Can't say anything bad about Fort Wilderness. Clean showers and bathrooms, good transportation, good sites and can accommodate most rigs, Has overflow parking lot for trailers. Lots of activities including pony rides for the kids, Segway tours, trail rides, canoe & bike rentals plus campfire and movie each night with Chip & Dale. Will definitely be back and can't wait to get home again. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

For me, this set the standard for a "10" and is what other campgrounds should aspire to. PRO's: Drive Up Check-In (never leave vehicle), Entertainment on Site (Character Dining, Movies on lawn, 24hr heated pool and water slide), bathrooms are nicer and cleaner than mine at home, showers are huge, transportation to Magic Kingdom by Ferry, meticulously kept sites (redressed after each camper leaves), Level sites, good shade areas, very friendly staff, well stocked camp stores. CON's: Park is so spread out, that where you are located be the difference between a long walk or renting a golf cart at $50.00 a day (try to influence what loop you get), Bus's within park could run on slightly quicker schedule but it's adequate, if on a meal plan - there is no decent quick-service on site you will need to bus over to the lodge. TIPs: The only difference between a preferred site and a premium site is that premium sites are slightly larger with newer equipment (tables, grills, etc). However the preferred sites are closer to food, ferry, and entertainment. Personally, I would aim for loops 100-400. Note that there is a cut through to the ferry on site 100. Avoid crowds at the kingdom, you can watch the evening fireworks from the beach at the campground. GPS will take you to lodge, not the campground - trust signs once in Disney, not the GPS. Give yourself at least one day at the campground to enjoy what is there, we were in the magic kingdom so much we didn't get to try things like the pool.

This was our 3rd time we stayed here. This time we brought our dog and stayed in the park loop. They have a fenced dog park which was great. All the sites were will maintained. The only complaint is that the bus service to the parks were very slow. We drove to the parks which was much faster. Other than that what can I say this is Disney. Every thing in the campground was top notch. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Our first time back to FW since the 80's. Still sets the standard! Sites a little narrow, but plenty of room between them. We were in a full hook-up, pet loop. CG was very full, but quiet. Comfort stations squeaky clean, but very busy in the AM. Staff always cleaning. Laundry facilities fine. The dog park is a great addition, gave us a chance to let the furkids off leash and run for awhile before going to the kennel for the day. I love it that Disney allows the dogs in now, otherwise we wouldn't be able to stay here. We've already booked for next February, fingers crossed the weather is warmer!

This is the ultimate campground, the one that all other campgrounds should use as a guide. Countless activities for all ages, from horseback riding, nightly campfire with Disney movies on "drive in" size outdoor screen, carriage rides, hayrides, beach, great bass fishing, tennis courts, archery, waterslide. As I said, COUNTLESS. Add the magic of Disney and it becomes a vacation destination without even visiting the amusement parks. The comfort stations are spotless, the staff is unrealistically friendly. We will camp here on every occasion that presents itself. It's a little more expensive than many campgrounds, but well worth the extra costs when you consider the entertainment available.

I booked and paid for a premium site Dec 26 - 31 2009 and when I got there they put us in a tent site. I called the front office and they said sorry that's all we have available. Disconnected my trailer and drove to the office and we got another site that had electric, water, and sewer. We were not offered any refund. We had to call guest services due to neighbors breaking quite hours in which at 2 am they finally went to bed. I will never take my family to this campground again. For the amount of money spent I felt like I could never relax in order to get my monies worth. We stayed up the road for $19 a night and had a more enjoyable time.

This was our second time camping here, and it is fast becoming our favorite campground. We stayed in the 300 loop for 2 weeks. Spaces are close together, but we don't spend much time at the site when we're at Disney - mostly just sleep there. We rent a golf cart because it's too far to walk and adds to our Disney experience. Bathrooms were immaculate and bus service to the parks/other resorts was excellent. There was a lot of standing water between sites due to the heavy rains before we arrived. I've never seen so many skeeters in my life, but again that really isn't Disney's fault. My only suggestion might have been some evening mosquito spraying throughout the park. We did have one issue with the pool which has been upgraded with a new slide and it is great! We noticed a large group of 10 people camping out by the pool dressed in street clothes. Something was just "off" about them. They changed in the restroom to their suits - although some swam in their clothes and used the pool all afternoon. When they were done they showered at the pool rinse off shower by the hot tub - and by shower I mean used soap and shampoo. It was ridiculous and several people went to the lifeguards. Their response was laughing and saying, "We can't do anything about it". It was just so blatantly apparent that these visitors were not guests of the Fort. Next time I would contact Security myself and not deal with the lifeguards. We will stay here again because we love Disney and this campground.

We visited the park and used it as a base camp for our trip to Halloween Horror Nights, as well as our visit to Animal Kingdom. We found the park very clean, well kept, they were still making improvements on some of the loops, but had no impact on the experience. We took in a movie in the meadow, biked around the area enjoying the campgrounds offerings. If you stay here plan on a day just in the campground seeing and doing things. Bring the "smores" kit cause your gonna need it at the movie. Be sure you bring your bike as the carts are a little pricey, but you can bike to everything in the campground and enjoy it. We really enjoyed it and are already planning the next trip. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent 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.

We camped at Ft. Wilderness over Thanksgiving and had a ball! The campground was beautiful and many people had decorated their sites for Christmas. We rented a golf cart and found it very useful for getting around the campground and we especially enjoyed riding around at night and looking at the sites decorated for Christmas. The campground was very quiet at night and we liked that. Our family has already made reservations for Thanksgiving next year and we cannot wait to go back.

This is the top of the heap as far as places to go with your kids. There is so much for them to do, you almost wish they had an adults only area that you could run away to while they were busy. The outdoor movies at night and campfires made it such a special treat for them. The only drawback is that this place is almost always booked way far in advance. Especially on the weekends. Since we are locals, we can call on a Friday morning and see if they have cancellations, but even then it is difficult to get a spot.

This was our first time at Fort Wilderness and I can't say enough positive things about this campground. The sites are tight but separated with trees. A park employee helped us park and then went across the street and helped someone else. Very Nice. We were in the 800 loop which I recommend for being close to pool, marina and food. Plan ahead and rent a golf cart - there is a charge, we paid about $300 for our entire trip, but it's well worth it and part of the fun. The bathrooms are very clean and nice. One bathhouse per loop with ice machine, phone and laundry facilities. Laundry had 4 washers and 8 dryers. Well stocked store for campers needs as far as food goes, but it's a resort so you will pay higher prices. Lots of rabbits, ducks, armadillos. Horses riding on site for a fee. This is a great campground even if you aren't doing the Disney parks. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.
