This is a Disney Resort and operated as such. The check in process was a bit of challenge when there was no parking in the overflow lot while waiting for the site to be "ready" after arriving a couple hours early. The interior roads, level sites and facilities are very well maintained. We stayed in the premium loop sites close the ferry that takes you the parks. Keep in mind this was built many years ago when RV's were not as big, so the sites can be difficult to get into. Golf cart rentals were helpful getting around this large resort. The free transit buses transport to all parks & will pick up and drop off inside the campground. This is a big plus and a parking fee savings! Verizon service was excellent. Staff was very helpful with having to depart early because of the hurricane. There is a lot of activities to do just in the campground itself and is a vacation inside a vacation. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

A very nice and large campground. Many things to do here. The biggest drawback for me was the site. We were near the end of the 1600 loop. Not much privacy. If we return, I will get a premium site, which has a larger concrete pad and a little more room. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very clean, well kept park. If you are going to spend all your time going to Disney -- or if you have small (pre-tween) children that will spend their days at the pool swimming and doing other activities -- then it may be worth it. Purely as a campground, it's very clean but not particularly great in any way. More expensive sites have more paved area. Less expensive sites have fine gravel to deal with. All have good hookups, reasonable space, and close access to amenities. If you're just using this park as a base camp for accessing all of Orlando, look elsewhere. It's really designed for Disney-goers--or folks who want to pay hundreds of dollars for dining and entertainment on site. (E.g., dinner show was $300 for four people. Horseback riding, $200 for four people. Archery, $190 for four people.) On site dining services are easy (and priced accordingly), but the food is kid stuff: pizza, burgers, etc. and nothing more. Most people tool around in golf carts, though nothing is so far that you need to do that. Need a cart? Better reserve in advance...and, guess what, they are $65/day. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lots on site for small kids. For bigger kids and adults, expect to pay a lot to be entertained. Disney is not great at service--they have just learned that when you pay through the nose, you'll be willing to stand on line for a while or wait on hold forever. If you need to make reservations etc. try to do it in person; phone calls were aggravating.

Park is packed and crowded, it is loud all the time, round the clock, dogs bark constantly, kids screaming ALL the time, kids running through your site constantly, lots of noise from everything including people camping with loud music. Riding the bus is handy but you have to stand up or sit with some stranger against you (and lots of them smell!), buses are always packed like a sardine can......... It is NOT worth the escalated prices just because it is at Disney. There are a lot of other parks nearby that are better than this one.. Best tip I can offer is; "GO SOMEWHERE ELSE" because this park is way over-priced and not worth what you pay........ The people are loud around the clock, kids are out of control as long as they are there, people turn them loose to do whatever they want to do. We had loud music problems at night and it was hard to get a good nights sleep and peaceful meals and watch tv................... We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

The only reason you would stay here is if you were going to one of the Disney parks. I requested an early check in at noon and got right in. I also asked for a treeless site so the satellite would work which they got me. Get a site away from the main roads or you will hear the buses all the time. My site was in the 600 loop and was good for me. The bus transportation around is busy but you may find yourself waiting 20-30 minutes at every stop. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is one of the best parks we have ever seen and it is huge. Obviously it is expensive, there is nothing cheap at Disney. The grounds are really nice with a mix of oaks, pines and cypress trees providing at least partial shade most places. There are some sites more open for better satellite service, but they provide cable TV. When a campsite is vacated the staff cleans it promptly, never seen anything approaching this at another campground. Lots of paved paths for biking and walking as well as campground shuttle buses and buses to the parks. Pretty enjoyable to sit on the campground beach and watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

We absolutely loved this park. The interior roads were easy to navigate. Sites were very clean. There were a few play grounds to choose from for the kids as well as a beach area. The kids loved watching the horses at the stables as well as riding the boats. Internal buses made it easy to get around. Very clean, lots of shade, friendly staff, and secure.

After checking in at drive thru spots, there was an area to pull thru and disconnect/reconnect towed vehicles. When checking out, we went to park motorhome in overflow lot to do one last character dining meal and found the parking lot to be quite full of small trailers taking up large pull thru spots, a couple people parked on the sides of the parking lot making it a tight squeeze to maneuver, we spent a bit longer than we anticipated idling and circling for a space.

This is simply the best campground that I have ever seen. It is exceptionally clean and well serviced. A visit to Disney is not complete without taking a day off from the parks and enjoying the amenities of the campground including playgrounds, pools, horses, and live entertainment. While visiting the parks, you can park your vehicle and use Disney transportation to anywhere you want to go. Many sites have been recently enlarged to accommodate big rigs. Most sites are private enough because they have many trees. My favorite loop is 1100 but others are equally good. I have stayed in this campground at least 10 times and 3 of those have been in the past 10 months. I would not consider another campground in the Central Florida area.

First off, we drove down from Wisconsin and arrived a day early. We called them to see if we could get in a day early. The lady on the phone was awesome and got us in a day early. I question the price as it seemed like we paid way too much for an extra night's stay that didn't even include a ticket to the park. We did arrive after dark and check-in went smooth. They do have security at the gate that checks IDs so that does keep unwanted guests out or at least you would hope it does. When we drove around our loop it looked so festive and welcoming. Backing into the site was a little bit of a challenge in the dark. It was further complicated because the area to back in is tight and that was even worse when the person across from us has his vehicle parked partially in the road. I did manage to get backed in after a couple of tries. The next day I did notice someone in the loop trying to back in, they got so frustrated that they just drove off. Just be aware that backing in can be a challenge and tight at some of the sites. The site itself was level and had a paved pad. Behind the pad was a sand, crushed shell area that we used to grill in (propane grills only since you could not have a fire due to drought). We had great shade at the site and all the hookups worked great. The pool was nice. It had a small water slide. The water level for the entire pool was less than 4 ft so very kid friendly. The bus system was great. They run past our stop every 20 min or less. On the first morning we were not sure exactly what we were doing but the driver gave us great advice that helped us get to Magic Kingdom. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

While certainly not inexpensive, the combined value of proximity to entertainment, dining options, size of site and ease of access makes this my families top rated campsite. We purchased Disney gift cards at a 10% discount thru BJ's and used those to pay at checkin which did help save a little. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for 9 nights in the 900 loop. It was wonderful. I am glad we opted to rent the golf cart as it made getting around much easier. The whole vacation was great. No one does it better than Disney. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Expensive? Yes, but worth it! Campsites are clean and constantly maintained, after a camper leaves a cleaning crew comes in. They pick up any debris, rake, hose down the site. I never saw a trashy site. Comfort station is also clean, showers roomy and are very tidy. Loved all the amenities, but the pool is more geared toward younger kids. Camp stores have basic camping supplies and groceries. We rented a golf cart and it was worth every $, not only did it make getting around very convenient but the kids LOVED sitting in it, even when we weren't using it. The restaurants/quick service is all good and we can't wait to go back. A must for any camping/Disney loving family. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Yep! $175/night, but it was very nice. I was fishing from my site. Ice is available at every bathroom. The bathrooms are within a few hundred feet of every site. Trash and recycle are within a few feet of every site. Everything is spotless. There is a Disney employee hosing down the site before you arrive. A note on the price, $175 was actually $10 more than the All-Star resort with a resident discount. Our stay was over spring break and if you want to be at Fort Wilderness over spring break I guess you will have to pay for it. There are only back in sites at Disney World.

It's Disney World. If your board, its your fault. Never saw anyone until sun down. Apparently everyone is at Disney, or the pools, during the day. We went to the Hoop-de-doo review the first night.

I guess the only reason you would stay here is if you were going to one of the Disney parks. Our spot was hard to get into to start with. You receive a lot of cable channels but most are scrambled for some reason. The park is very noisy. The sites were close together in the loop I was in. Oh and the price.

Women had two and three children in the handicap shower stalls giving baths and handicap people were unable to use. The park is noisy until around midnight and then it calms down. Around 5 AM it's very loud again. Car horns, kids yelling. Everyone up early for the 6 AM and 7 AM park openings. If your doing the Disney thing all day it will work for you. If you just want to enjoy camping choose another campground. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
