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. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

We loved it. It is everything you would expect from Disney, extremely clean, extremely friendly, and extremely fun! It is what all campgrounds should aspire to, large, private lots, fabulous service, great entertainment and lots to do! Will definitely go back, it is worth the extra money you pay to stay in Disney!

This was our second time to be at Disneyworld, the first time we stayed in an All Star hotel. The campground was awesome and even though you have the cooking and cleaning that comes with camping, we would definitely stay here again as opposed to a hotel. The sites were spacious and wooded. There were 2 stores and a restaurant. There was an outdoor movie theatre, showing disney movies every night. You could ride your bikes to the beach and watch fireworks every night and ferry to and from The Magic Kingdom. There were peacocks that roamed through the campground. There was so much to do that you didn't have time to do it all! We're looking forward to going there again someday. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a perfect way to get around Disney at a fair price. We stood in off season and paid only $47/nigh. We last camped at Ft. Wilderness in 1989 and paid $33/night. Only a $14/night increase in 13 years. Not bad! The site we had was a little tight to get into but once in, there was plenty of room. You cannot beat this CG for the convenience. There was a mosquito problem that kept us from sitting out at night. We camped at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
