Additional Pet Information:Pets like to go on vacation, too, so we offer a limited number of pet-friendly Preferred Hook-Up and Premium campsites. All pets must be confined in the interior of the owners personal recreational vehicle. For pop-ups and tents, pets must be secured in containers such as portable cages or kennels. Campsite Guests with pet privileges may take their dogs to play in the off-leash Waggin' Trails Dog Park or walk the many on-leash trails. So that our Guests with pets can enjoy ample time at the Walt Disney World theme parks and destinations, day and overnight kennel care is available at Best Friends Pet Care. Pet owners are required to pick up after and properly dispose of their pet's droppings. Pets that interfere with the quality of the Guest experience at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in any away (such as aggression, noise, etc.) or generate a legitimate complaint to management will result in the pet owner being required to discontinue the pet's inappropriate behavior, remove the pet to an off-site kennel or leave the Resort.

This is the campsite that we use to measure all others by. We drive a 44 foot RV and we had plenty of space left on our premium fully padded site. Site has full hook up. The cleanliness and up keep of the sites are incredible. Friendly staff. We went without our children and were able to enjoy quiet adult time. Renting a golf cart is a must! Convenience store is the nicest we've ever seen at any park. We can't wait to go back!
Fort Wilderness Campground in February 2012
This was our 1st adventure at camping at Disney's huge camping venue. Our site was full service, Water, Electric, Sewer and Cable TV. This is the perfect time to visit Disney, Florida is wonderful and cool this time of year, and the 4 Disney Park are empty, the only venue in any of the parks with a line longer than 10 minutes was Pixel Studios in Disney's Hollywood park.
Access to the parks from Fort Wilderness is via water taxi or Monorail To Epcot and Disney World. The other parks its a bus ride.
The fire works at Disney World start at 8PM and Epcot @ 9PM, both can be seen and heard from Fort Wilderness' beach area.
Your parking pass can be used in any parking lot on the same day you check out of the campground. This was great since we purchased the Florida Residents 3 parks for $99.00. We visited all parks with no weather heat issues, no crowd issues and with plenty of time to the two of us to enjoy our 1st trip to Disney World with no children in tow.
The only thing that was strange was the upgraded camping sites we were promised when we rejected our first assign site, due to construction in the rest rooms. We were told we were receiving a free upgrade to a better site, that simply was not true, we reserved a full featured site and thats where they re-assigned us. An upgraded site would have been near the beach area, this is not where we were.
Excellent 4 days
Visited over Thanksgiving 2011 for 4 nights in our 19 foot trailer. The camp grounds were good and we felt like we were far enough from our neighbors that they were not an issue. We all (2 adults and 2 kids) used the bath house for shores and they were very clean.
What can you say - location, location, location. We took the ferry on our one day at the park to the magic kingdom which was easy.
My only 2 issues is that the place is big and not walk able. One needs to rent a golf cart (which we didn't due to our short stay?). Also, the store doesn't open until 10:00 AM. So, if you need breakfast provisions, get them the night before.
What a 5-star experience!
We paid $107 for the weekdays and $112 for the weekends for a FHU, back-in with cable. We had excellent Verizon phone and MiFi coverage which was good since they did not offer WiFi at our sites. We also had difficulty getting a clear signal on our dish for TV due to the extensive trees everywhere, so we used their cable. Every other channel was affiliated with Disney or cartoons and they had several languages for every channel.
Customer service is high priority in every part of our visit here. There was not a rude look, or comment, or a shrug, or eye roll, or anything that could have been looked at as anything but truly accommodating from each and every worker we came in contact with. From the clerks, to the maintenance, to the toilet cleaners, they were all smiles and very congenial.
The entire park is very well maintained and manicured, a top notch resort. If you do not see what you need, all you have to do is ask, again the high priority of customer service is apparent everywhere right down to the tiniest details of the cleanliness of the facilities.
The price is exuberant, but when you take into consideration the cost of parking, and the time to travel to and from each park, we believe it is well worth it to stay right on the property and if we ever come back to Disney World, we would again stay here.
They adhere to their pet policy (included below), we had no instances of any kind with any of the pets, wish we could say the same about some of the children.
We were very impressed with Fort Wilderness Resort. We stayed in the 1800 loop in our RV, while our adult kids, 4 of them and our grand baby stayed in the cabin right next to our site. We had a great time the seven days we were there. Well maintained park and the transportation within the site was excellent. We only drive our truck once that week and that was to go food restock shopping on our down day (no park visit planned). We enjoyed ourself!
