If I recall.. ice dump machines were outside all the bath houses. They give you bags to fill also.

I'm going to be booking a trip down to the Fort in 2017. How far in advance does the website open up for reservations?

We just booked for early next year. It will be the farthest I ever pulled the camper by far. 1200 miles each way..

What to people do when you leave from a freezing climate to head to Disney? Do you put some water in your tank just before you leave? I think that's what I will do but leave the lines empty until I make it south enough and its above freezing..

Depends on the temps and the design of the RV. Since we had previously camped in 15 degree weather with no problem I would de-winterize before we left Ohio.(Dec-Jan) I also have a heated water hose if needed when we would get to our next stop.

When I leave my house it will be below freezing for quite some time before so I will be winterized. I was planning on putting 10 or 20 gallons in right before we leave but not use it until we are south enough. By not use I mean leave water pump off and lines empty.

And I have not thought about what I will do when we head back home !!

Golf Cart on every site

I wondered when we stayed at the Fort last year... Why do they not just put a cart on every site? I have looked at the math several times over and to me it makes financial sense as well as offering a valuable perk to their guests.

The way I see it the carts would pay for themselves within the first year by eliminating the need for buses and more important the salaried drivers to operate them 22 hours a day.

There is even the potential for revenue generation there by having standard carts on the site but the ability to upgrade to a themed cart or the sale of temporary cart decorations.

One added benefit to this would be the ability to control the size and speed of the equippment used in the Fort... I know our last trip there was over Labour Day weekend... The locals use the Fort as a weekend retreat and show up with BIG carts that fly around the park, quite often driven by either children or drunk adults.

As mentioned, it depends a lot on the construction of the coach. We have a seismic with the heated enclosed underbelly. Last year we drove from Ohio to California in early winter and had quite a bit of below freezing temps. We traveled with water in the lines, as well as a full water tank (142 gallons on our seismic!). We simply ran the furnace at night and during our lunch stops and never had any issues. We even got caught in a blizzard in OK, and what it let us do is to not have to mess with any hoses. If you are self contained, you hook up electric and start the furnace while others mess with hose connections and such. Just my 2 cents, but we typically have no problems traveling with water in the lines, at least in the lower 48.

Yes that happens, but having spent , many many days at the FORT there is far more abuse involving the DISNEY carts than with the private carts.
