I was disappointed by all the removal of the brush between campsites and the roadways. Shuttle service is available via Disney buses around the campground. I highly recommend bringing a golf cart. You could rent one at Fort Wilderness at a high price. If you have a trailer you can do what we did borrow one from a friend or rent it from your hometown and trailer it. Or if you do not want the trouble rent one. The showers were clean and had a small changing area before the shower area. I was disappointed with the pool area. I know now that the pool is being refurbished. Check in could be explained much better. We rented a scooter and had it dropped off to main desk with no problems. No problems with electric. Our dogs loved the dog run!!! The competes varied, like all campgrounds. Some were deep others were shallow and right on top of the road. Campground was clean. Of course we will visit again. Love Walt Disney world! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

By far one of the best campgrounds in the country. Even at $77.00 a night for a site with full hook up and cable it is well worth the money. Like everything Disney it is all about the experience. The only complaint is that the site was a little tight. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Disney, as usual, does things right. "Comfort stations" are clean and well maintained. I wouldn't call the sites huge, but they are nicely wooded and felt fairly private despite somewhat close proximity to neighboring sites. The lane through the campgrounds is narrow, though, and I struggled a little bit with getting the camper just where I wanted it because of limited room while backing. I'm still not sure how some of those big buses got in and out of their sites without hitting a tree or site post. Our site was dead-level and paved with asphalt surrounded by crushed shells that felt like sand (but tended to track into the camper). There was plenty of water pressure and good sewer hook-ups. For $60 a night, I would hope for free Wi-Fi, but it's $10 extra for 24 hours, and you pretty much have to be at the Trading Post to use it. Free transportation to Disney properties can be a little like playing Chinese checkers by the time you hop-skip-and-jump from a campground shuttle bus to a ferry boat to the monorail, etc. But late one night at a campground shuttle stop, we saw a family who obviously didn't speak English and had somehow wound up far from where they were supposed to be. The bus driver patiently explained the three or four steps they would need to take to get home, and they seemed to understand. A few minutes later, though, a white Disney minivan pulled up and offered to take the family directly home. Obviously the bus driver was concerned they wouldn't get there and called for help. First class operation! If you're going to do Disney, this is a great way to do it: You get all the guest privileges of guests who stay at the fancy Disney hotels, such as early/late access to theme parks on certain days, and you don't have to pay restaurant prices for every meal when you eat in the camper. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a top notch campground. They even have some way to keep it bug free! There are shaded sites (no grass), a nice pool, and paved walking and bicycle trails. There is great transportation to the parks. There is a nightly campfire, movie, and sing along in central location. Very, Very nice place to stay.

Ft Wilderness is a must do if you are an RV person. Everything is immaculate. The restroom and showers are beyond reproach. The facilities and staff are the best you will ever find. We had wild ducks walk into our campsite. A turkey hen and her chicks came walking though also. At first we thought ol' Walt had staged the wildlife but it was all nature done. Can't recommend this place enough. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We used our AAA travel agent to book our Disney Fort Wilderness Vacation and received the AAA discount. We were in the 400 loop and the sites were a little tight but other than that we loved everything about this campground. There are a ton of activities scheduled everyday to keep the kids busy. We had a great time and will return again in the future. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We have not camped at Ft. Wilderness in 12 years and this is the first time for us without our children since we were married. I will give you the pros and the cons. Pros – It’s Disney and the whole atmosphere is great. They have more busses now going to everything so there is less of a wait but did notice some of the cabin loops waited for quite awhile. The Hoop De Do is there and that is good. The boat dock and beach are there and the bathrooms are wonderful. We were there Memorial Weekend and the following week and were surprised that the crowds were not big at the parks during the weekend. The campground though was crowded but the loops thinned out after the holiday weekend. They still have the water light parade at 9:45 every night on the Bay and Magic Kingdoms fireworks behind it which is beautiful. Checkin was fast and easy and the staff was great. You don’t even get out of your car or camper to checkin. They now put out a little schedule of all the activities during the day for people staying at the campground – great for kids. They still have the movies at night at the campfire. Staying at the campground you can find a bus to anywhere in Disney World and Downtown Disney. This is the best thing! Also one of the best deals (don’t tell Disney though) is that if you purchased a mug for $12 you can fill it up with soda, water, coffee, tea etc as much as you want during your whole stay at Disney. Every resort does this so you can go with your mug from resort to resort and drink away! Disney tries to control smoking around their resorts but there seems to be a lot more people smoking in Florida then other states, and no one thinks they are littering when they throw their butts on the ground. Cons – The cost keeps going up and it is close to $100 a night for the premium sites. Since I made my reservation a year ago they have raised the price three times and now they charge more if you are there for a weekend then they do for the week so that your rate is not the same the whole time. No Wifi except for three places around the park (for the price you pay they should have wifi). They charge you for the wifi $10 for 24 hours which is over $300 for wifi for a month and that is just for the internet nothing else. Our loop was quiet, but some of the other loops especially during the holiday weekend were noisy, but not during the week. They are planning some big changes here with adding or expanding sites to become pull throughs and more sites for the big, big rigs. I can’t imagine what they are going to charge for these changes. This campground went from not allowing pets to having one loop with pets to – during our bike rides we counted at least 10 loops for campers with pets so they have really changed their policy. Right now during the week the park was only a third filled but on the weekends totally filled – it used to be always filled. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground is huge! Our site was beautifully landscaped on the end of a row in Dogwood Acres. Concrete pad with sand area and grill in the back. Back-in site but quite wide and easily negotiated turns. Immaculate bath house. Very quiet CG. Buses traveled throughout the Disney facility and to all parks so no tow vehicle was needed however, bus travel is slow so patience is required to get anywhere. Very nice pool near the market with plenty of kids' activities. Nice view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the marina but it would be nice to hear the music that accompanies the show. I would rate this a 10 except for the outrageous charge of $10 a day for internet and the lack of cable. Overall however, a pleasant week. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Camped for 8 nights: got the AAA rate. As good as we remember from the 1980's. If you have a golf cart, trailer it. You do not need a tow vehicle. Bicycles are great for getting around. Chose the preferred sites near the Settlement Trading post (loop 400). This was within easy walking distance of the boat and bus stops. Need to get in early to verify that your MH will work on the sites. Some have trees that limit the slides and awnings. Also: Disney does not book the long, paved sites properly. Need to call the "front desk", ask for Fort Wilderness and then they will "relocate" you. If you have guest flying in, the Disney Magic Express will pick them up at the airport. We took down the grandkids and flew in the parents. What a relief not to have to drive to the airport to pick up and drop off. There are several independent blogs you need to read. Remember: Golf Carts rent for $40 - $50. Not cheap. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Its Disney so it going to be a well maintained campground. Sites and streets are a little narrow so big rigs and big 5th wheels will have a bit of a hard time maneuvering. Onsite transportation is easy to get to and runs promptly. You could spend a couple of days just with the activities in the campground. Only thing that was not completely up to Disney standards was that they have cut down a lot of the trees that surrounded the sites. Looks a bit rough at the moment but I'm sure they will planting new plants to replace what they removed. At our site the cable and electrical hookups where at the front of the site so extensions for both where needed. Will stay here again.

We have stayed there many times. This is the cleanest and most well maintained campground, we have ever stayed at. You never have to drive once you get set up. The bus system is second to none. This is the most family friendly campground you will ever camp at. My only complaint is that they will not guarantee you will be next to your group even when you make reservations 6 months in advance.

We have camped at Fort Wilderness for the past two years and love it! There is so much to do you don't have to leave the campground. The bath houses are very, very clean. The campsites are close but wooded which allows some privacy. The water taxis will take you straight to Magic Kingdom. On our last trip, we learned the nightly fireworks at Magic Kingdom can been seen from the beach area at the campground. Wireless internet is available at both of the trading posts but was unavailable at our campsite. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Expensive, but a wonderfull campground. The negatives: The pet loop is quite narrow, and appears to be designed for tent campers of years ago. This makes for a very tight approach to your site. The sites are not easy to back into. Not only are the not angled enough for easy entry, but large trees across from your site will interfere with your backing in. Other than that this is an excellent park at the Disney resort. Nice pools, campground entertainment at night, store with plenty to choose from, playgrounds, restaurant and bar, transportation around the campground and to the theme parks, the list goes on. In spite of the tight narrow access loops, this is a wonderfull park. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Disney knows how to entertain. Horse-drawn wagon rides, horseback, boats, fishing, campfire program with Disney movie & characters, etc. Hands down the cleanest campground in America. Sites are very large (paved pad with sand & grill post, soon to be updated with all paved pad for Big Rigs). Campers of all sizes and types. We camp for 2-3 weeks every year here.
