Walt Disney World Florida 

Disney Fort Wilderness

The Disney Fort Wilderness campground and cabins aren't your standard RV park. For those of you who want to see all that Disney World in Orlando has to offer, but want to do it from the comfort of your home on wheels, think about Disney's Fort Wilderness campground.

Why Fort Wilderness?

The question probably is "Why stay at Ft. Wilderness rather some other Orlando campground?"

Because of the Disney magic.

Disney Fort Wilderness is unique in Florida, and probably even the United States. Now I've done reviews on lots of different Florida campgrounds, and my normal feeling is the Florida State Parks have the best camping experience...except for Fort Wilderness!

If you are making the effort to bring your RV or all your camping gear with you, why not stay here? At the Disney Fort Wilderness campground you are part of Walt Disney World experience.

There's plenty to see and do, and transportation between the campgrounds and the rest of Disney is a breeze. And before I forget -- there are over 700 acres to Disney's Fort Wilderness - that's a lot of room to roam!

Fort Wilderness Campground

There are 788 campsites located at the Disney Ft. Wilderness campground. Three types of sites are available:

  • Partial Hookup: Includes water and electricity

  • Full Hookup: Includes water, electricity and sewer

  • Preferred Hookup: all of the above plus a cable TV hookup and a better location

.Both RV and tent campers are welcome at Fort Wilderness. All campsites have a charcoal grill and picnic table. As far as spacing, the sites are fairly well set up with bushes and trees for more privacy.

So What Is There To Do At Fort Wilderness?

One of the things that brings in people from all over Disney is the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue dinner show. Bring your appetite as it's an all-you-care-to-eat dinner. But you may spend more time laughing and cheering than eating! The Hoop-Dee-Doo is part vaudeville, part musical and all Disney!

Okay, now that you've seen the show, what else is there? How about:

  • Take a swim in a pool or at the white-sand beach

  • Rent a boat or sign up for a boating course

  • Go fishing (catch and release)

  • Tennis

  • Enjoy a one-mile jogging trail

  • Rent a bicycle or an electric cart

  • Pony, horseback, carriage and wagon rides

  • Check out the arcade

  • Rent some movies

  • Attend the Chip 'n Dale Campfire Singalong

  • Take the kids to the playground

Aside from the Hoop-Dee-Doo, there is also "Trail's End" restaurant and "Crockett's Tavern". Trail's End is a buffet-style restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Crocket's Tavern is what it sounds like -- a tavern which also serves pizza, appetizers and smoothies (for the non-drinking crowd).

There is also a character dinner show called Mickey's Backyard BBQ. It's an all-you-can-eat affair, held in a pavilion and very kid-friendly.

Have a great camping vacation at Walt Disney Fort Wilderness!

Fort Wilderness Cabins

The Disney Fort Wilderness campgrounds also has air-conditioned cabins for your enjoyment (and boy is that AC ever welcome on hot summer days).

There are 409 one-bedroom cabins that can sleep up to six people.

The cabins also have a full kitchen complete with everything needed (pots, pans, plates, utensils).


Best Times and Discounts for a Disney World Camping Vacation

I'm going to have you check the main Walt Disney World resort hotels page for information about the times of year that are best for your Disney vacation.

Now it it were me, I'd stay away from the Fort Wilderness camping between mid-May and mid-September. Florida weather is hot and rainy that time of year!

Spring and Fall are awesome, though!

Included is information about the different rate seasons as well as what to look for in the way of discounts! Don't spend more for your Disney trip than you have to -- you'll have more to spend in the theme parks!
