This is the cream of the crop. You pay a hefty price but all in all it is worth it. There are so many things to do and places to go. We try to go twice a year. We like to skip the "roughing it" part of camping. It is our "Happy Place". Just watching all the smiles on the kids faces makes the trip worth it.
We have even skipped the theme parks and just enjoyed visiting the hotels on the property. We ride the water craft and rent a golf cart to ride around the campground. The pools are great although the main pool is crowded there is another one we have found that is usually quiet.
You can be as active as you want or as lazy as you want.
I have been to WDW over 100 times, I have stayed at MANY of the resorts. This was my first time with the RV. 1st it's the only place you can bring your dog! 2nb it's vibe is a lot slower paced, which is great after a day at the parks. We will probably only do WDW this way for a while. You have access to transportation but a golf cart is a good idea. You can easily access Disney world, Epcot, fort wilderness, contemporary, and grand Floridian. If you bring your kids you could spend a few days just hanging out in the pool, horse back riding and other fun things.
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!
Best deal at Disney. The only way to go if you want to stay on property but not pay an arm and a leg.
Best park ever!
Just made our first RV trip. We took our children for the first time and had a blast! Had always stayed in one of Disney's high priced resorts, But will probably never stay in a hotel there again.
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!
It's Disney what else can I say
Fort Wilderness is one of the best campgrounds I've ever stayed at. Sites are clean well maintained. Transportation within the park is fast and timely. Only negative is the lack of free Wi-Fi.
From Fort Wilderness you can use the monorail transportation. In order to do so you have to use either the water taxi or bus to take you to magic kingdom or ticket ad transportation in order to board the monorails.
