Best park we've ever been at. Clean, shaded, quiet, level, simply outstanding. Beautiful settings, lots of activities for kids (even if you don't go to the WDW Parks). Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We'll be back! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent camp ground. All services and attractions (many for a fee) are better than any other camp grounds visited. Place is huge but is completely level--great for bicyle riding. Liked the meandering roads and sidewalks as an added camping experience. Disney transportation to the theme parks is flawless and very convenient. Each loop is pretty much self sufficient for immediate camper services. My site looks as if it has not been mowed in more than a few weeks. Also had to have a fellow camper move their vehicle so I can back in my 33 ft travel trailer into my site. Nothing wrong with the resort style camp ground but considering paying almost $100.00 a night, had expected the "WOW" factor to make it worth the high price. Really this camp ground is not much better looking than the fancy resort style places. I was expecting a little more for the money. Next time will look else where to see if there is a comparable camp ground for a lower price, otherwise will come back again due to the convenience of Disney transportation to the theme parks. Price included two adults, four children and a pet at a preferred site. Decided to give the high rating because all camp ground service was flawless, deducted only due to being pricey. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

These comments are for Fort Wilderness as a campground. My family's been going to WDW and Disneyland several times a year for many years. In our opinion, staying on-site turns the Disney experience from a nice place to go into a wonderful resort vacation. At WDW, the availability of the dining plan makes the on-site stay even more pleasant. To get this option, one must stay on-site. Fort Wilderness is a terrific campground. We camped in a B+ (small motorhome), so the tight turns and (sometimes) smaller sites are not an issue. This campground is perhaps the most "B-friendly" one around. They give you what you ask for without bias based upon the size of your rig. The bathrooms and showers are modern and clean. The sites are cleaned thoroughly after the previous camper departs. The few minor things that go wrong are attended to quickly and competently. Here are a few things I'd like to see Walt fix: stop charging for Wifi ($10 a day is outrageous); add more bathrooms; alter the automated sink mechanisms to allow me to adjust the temperature of the water. The high daily fee simply reflects the location. We think it is well worth it. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Great place to stay for families. Our kids enjoy the campground more than any hotel room. Excellent transportation in the park and to all Disney attractions. After you make reservations, call the "Bike Barn" and reserve the golf cart. There is parking at your site and up at the front office and that is about it. We stayed 5 nights before memorial day weekend, spent 2 days at Disney parks and the rest in the campground and had a blast. I would hope in the future they would add WiFi service, but then again it is Disney and you are supposed to be on vacation. Only negative on this trip was the initial check-in. Sites were supposed to be available by 1 p.m. We arrived early (11 a.m.), but were unable to get a site until 2 p.m. Not very Disney like. We'll return again as soon as we get a chance. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

If you're visiting Disney,then this should be your number one choice. I know the nightly charge sounds high, but if you factor in the daily RV parking charge you would have to pay (free parking is available if you stay here) then the charge drops considerably. This wonderful park includes just about everything, and everthing is clean and well maintained. Take advantage of the 10 day package for Disney, because it is only about $40 more for the entire 10 day park pass over a 5 day. An absolutely excellent park.

Camping at Disney is great but I expected more. The campground is very clean with many things to do. However, the campground is spread out. You will need a bicycle or golf cart to get around in the campground or you will be at the mercy of Disney transportation. Camp sites are close together and somewhat small. The roads are very narrow and at times tough to navigate. It is costly for what you get but there is no better place to stay while visiting Disney. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It doesn't get much better. Sites are close but they try to screen them with vegetation. No racoons here to take your food! No mosquitoes for that matter. This is our favorite place to go but you have to plan ahead: it is always booked! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great park, but since it is older it is not set up very well for bigger rigs. The road to our site was very narrow making it difficult to get backed in. The site was so narrow that when we opened the slides, there was very little room to walk to the rear of the coach where the picnic table was. As far as the park in general it was superb. A golf cart or bikes are definitely needed, the place is big. We really enjoyed the "Hoop To Do Review" and having transportation to the other Disney Parks was great. We'll go back. but we'll push hard for a larger site. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We camp here often and have always had a great experience. The only draw back is some sites have the hookups too close to the pad causing issues with slide outs and in the winter it is very hard to get a site as they book up quickly. Security patrols often and grounds are very quiet at night. Many amenities but all cost additional money. The atmosphere and Disney Theme Parks keep us coming back.

I can't imagine a better RV park then Fort Wilderness. Another great visit. Bikes or a golf cart are a must for traveling around park. We went boating and used the pool. We also went to the campfire/movie. Facilities are very clean. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This should be the benchmark to which all campgrounds are measured. The disney experience is worth every cent. Upon check in you are greeted by cast members dressed in era attire. The theme is old west with modern conveniences. All roads are paved and most sites have cement pads. Hook-ups are all easily accessable and should you encounter a problem a service technician is promptly at your site. Some of the disney touches are complimentary transportation to the other disney resorts and theme parks, kennel services for your pet, incredible beach and pool areas, remarkable restrooms and showers. Most hotels would be envious of the calibre of these facilities. Another cute feature is the disney music playing through outdoor speakers as you get close to the waterfront. They also have a bus service that runs continuously through the park all day that is also complimentary. If you wish to stay at the campground they also have bike and boat rentals along with the usual outdoor activities. My only complaint is I'm not returning soon enough.

This was our first stay at Fort Wilderness. We stayed in the 500 loop and found it to have easy access to the Settlement Depot and most occasions we walked back and forth. It also has a bus stop right at the entrance to the loop, which was convenient. However, there is no bus schedule and we found the buses came erratically. Sometimes they seem to come every ten minutes, but we waited more than 20 minutes on one occasion. At one point two buses heading to the Settlement Depot passed us before one heading to the Outpost Depot. The 500 loop was very narrow, the equivalent of traveling up someone's driveway. All of the sites are back-in only, but we did not have any trouble maneuvering. However, be aware it isn't for the faint of heart or the novice driver. Be especially watchful for children on bikes, as they are everywhere. The campground is huge and at first glance we wished we had towed our car, but then we realized there is NO parking except at the campsite and the Outpost Depot. Many people brought their own golf carts or rented carts on-site. Reservations are needed for the golf carts and the are extremely expensive, almost $300 for seven days. Our campsite was in a great location and we managed well using our bikes. The campground is exceptionally maintained, as with all Disney resorts. The pool area does seem to be outdated and in need of an upgrade, but it was clean. There are two stores, one at the Meadows and one at the Settlement Depot. While they are both fully stocked with Disney paraphernalia, they are seriously lacking in food and camping supplies. Ensure you bring everything you will need for your trip because little is available and as to be expected the prices are exorbitant. We were required to pay $5 extra per night for our two dogs, but I don't understand why. Pets are not allowed outside of the "Pet Loop." Our cost per night including the pet fee and taxes came to just a little more than $100, which is excessive for a campsite given that we spent very little time at the actual campsite. I was disappointed with the petting zoo. They had pony rides, but there were height and weight restrictions, so my tall 7-year old daughter was not able to ride. But she was too young for the 9-year old requirement for the alternative horseback riding option offered. In addition, I was disappointed with the staff. I did not find them to be as helpful and friendly as what I have come to expect from Disney Resorts. The Friday before Easter there was apparently a night-time light parade followed by fireworks, but we did not receive any information regarding the event nor was it posted on the campground cable channel. I called the office to see if it would be repeated on Saturday and the "Cast Member" stated that she didn't know and I would have to call the Meadow Trading Post. The number listed for the Meadows Trading Post was no longer a valid telephone number. We enjoyed the sing-a-long and campfire, but didn't stay for the movie. Bring your own marshmallows and sticks! I highly recommend the Hoop-De-Doo review. reservations are required. We had a fabulous time! While it is over priced, Fort Wilderness more than compensates with its convenient location and available Disney transportation. We will most definitely return.

Oh my goodness this campground could never be praised enough it is so immaculate. The restrooms are as clean as your own home. The pool is warm enough to swim on the chillier nights in Disney. The stores are well equipped with the extra little things you forgot to buy in the parks. The transportation to the parks is wonderful. My sister has several disabilities that puts her in a wheel chair and she has dietary issues where she can not eat any gluten products. I must say the staff here are the best in the world they all were understanding and it made for our vacation to be less stressful and more enjoyable. This campground will never ever be topped by anyone ever because it is absolutely amazing. Teenager Approved! We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Great place to stay to visit the Magic Kingdom. The ferry boat takes campers directly to the Magic Kingdom from the campground. The sites were difficult to enter and exit due to narrow roads and site entrances. The staff did work with us to get into a site that worked for us. However once in the site, they are large and semi-private since the foliage partially barricades your site from the next one. The wifi charges of $9.95/ day were high considering we were already paying $82/night plus $5/night for the dog. That's why this campground only rated a 7. We were in the 700 loop this year and the 500 loop last time and both are close to the ferry dock. You also get free parking at the theme parks if you stay at Disney and for a motorhome that saves about $12/day per park if you skip the Disney transportation and drive to the theme parks. We will stay here again the next time we visit Disney World. We stayed in a 30 foot Class A motorhome We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
