[QUOTE=Grumpy;381563]If you haven't already made your reservations I recommend using a Travel Agent that specializes in DISNEY, doesn't cost you any additional, Mickey pays them.



Thank goodness the DW is a Travel Agent! Every little bit helps!

We did Halloween there last year. Didn't own an RV so we rented a Popup from a local vendor and rented a golf cart (not from Disney). We had a blast and big part of the reason we just ordered our hybrid travel trailer. Everything mentioned here is spot on.

This is the coolest resort (barring the ones on the monorail loop) to reach Magic Kingdom from since it is a boat ride there. The golf cart or bikes are definitely needed because the grounds are so spread out. If you do Halloween or Christmas, you'll also want to tour all the neighborhoods for the unique decorations of the sites.

We went a few years ago and had a great time. The campground is awesome. Was very clean and organized. We took our bicycles to get around. Plenty of things to do at the actual campground. Made our reservations a few months in advance. Makes me wish we didn't live two time zones away so we could get there more easily.

That's a dual edged sword. We are in the same time zone, but still 1200 miles away. We used to go to Disney, practically every year - non camping, mostly. It was using up the time off that prevented camping trips to other parts of the country. We decided we wanted to get the kids to as many National Parks as we could before we can't force them to travel with us anymore.

That put our Disney trips on a less frequent schedule, but don't worry! We still have our Disney Visa, earning or our Disney Dollars do so that we'll have to go back every now and then.

For those of you that have rented "off site" golf carts at WDW, how do you get the cart into the CG? Loaner trailer, back of the TV? I understand the rental Co's used to be able to deliver and pick up but the Mouse put a stop to it some years back.
I'm finding out that having a cart is lots of fun when camping but with a 5th, unless I want to double tow (I don't), I'm stuck with renting.

You meet them nearby (we chose a grocery store parking lot). They lend you their truck and trailer loaded up, you leave your car there (locked), they wait for you to go to your site and drop off. Rinse and repeat when you leave. It definitely feels sketchy, but it worked for us last year. I most likely will consider just renting from the mouse when we go this year.

I would so avoid campsites next to the bus routes. I haven't camped there but the bus we took went a long a road about twenty feet away from the nearest campsite.

The DW has worked for Disney 20 years and goes once or twice a year with her discount of course. In all those years I have never been to Disney. Now that I have the 5er I may have to make my first trip. I'll skip the park tho.

You can have a great time at Fort Wilderness without hitting any of the parks. There is so much to do, two pools, archery lessons, horse barn with rides for the younger ones, nightly outdoor movie with a campfire, walk down to the beach and watch the MK fireworks and electrical boat parade. You can walk the mile long trail through the woods over to Wilderness Lodge, you will see deer, turkeys and many other critters. Then hop on one of the boats and take a ride over to the Contemporary Hotel where you can hop on the monorail and visit some of the other resorts. Rent a bike for the day or bring your own and ride the miles of trails around the almost 800 acre campground, if your into fishing you can rent equipment, rent a canoe. Its one of the best kept campgrounds you will ever visit. If you want to visit during major holidays they fill up more than a year in advance, reservation can be made 499 days out.
