We’ve spent some serious time there in the last few years and absolutely love it. The place is formally called the Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and is top-of-the-line in every respect, bar none!!! The campground, designed in a series of loops where individual campsites are located, is situated within a mature forest for plenty of shade.
With children, you may want to stay close to the Meadows Recreational Area situated in the middle of the campground. (Gorgeous swimming pools, playgrounds, tennis, pavilion, snack bar, trading post, etc). Loops on the northern end of the campground are located near the Tri-Circle D Ranch, Pioneer Hall (w/ restaurant, play area, arcade, etc), marina and boat transportation to the Magic Kingdom, the monorail system, etc. Asphalt hike/bike trails are found throughout the campground. Disney bus transportation is available along the main road through the middle of the resort and runs on a 20 minute schedule. This will connect you to all other WDW theme parks, theme pools and hotel resorts. Park your vehicle at your campsite for your entire stay and use Disney transportation for everything else. That’s an adventure in itself!!!
Book reservations early (up to a year in advance) because the sites fill up fast and you could always cancel with no penalty if your schedule changes. Book on-line at: www.disneyworld.com
. We’ve stayed there for as little as a week and for as long as 3 months. The campground is usually full during the summer season and especially around national holidays. Rates vary greatly depending on the season, ie. lower in the winter, higher in the summer, etc.
You could rent a tt for use at WDW but I expect that would be very pricey. A better option might be to rent a cabin at the campground (also pricey) or better yet, check out the different resorts for accommodations that suit your needs. Once there, then checkout the campground for yourself. As I said before, it’s top-of-the-line!!!
