We stayed in the 300 loop in 2014. It was relatively quiet. After a day the park, head hit pillow and then it was morning.

The only advice I would have is to not be too close to a bus stop. The Disney buses make this beeping sound whenever they are stopped. These buses start running very early in the morning. So if you want quiet get in deep in the loop.
All of the sites are generally good, quiet, and relaxing. The only other issue we have ever had is getting our rig in to some of the spots. The roads have a lot of twists and bends and a TT at 31 feet can be a challenge at times. This is our issue, not Disney's.

I guess we'll see where they put me.

Now to my next conundrum. I'm planning my camping stop for the ride home. I can leave WDW on Saturday 4/15/17 (anytime b/c we're paid through Sunday) or on Sunday morning 4/16/17. That Sunday happens to be Easter.

Any travel tips for going North on I95 for my situation? Would I be better leaving at say 8PM on that Saturday or would leaving around 6AM on Easter Sunday be about the same? I'm obviously looking to avoid the traffic.

I could leave anywhere in between too, but I'm trying to be considerate to my fellow camping neighbors who would be sleeping as I turn over the E450 and make noise that early.

It's nice of you to consider others with your 6AM departure. I hope some day we are camped next to you.

Because you have a MH, starting the rig and driving off would be virtually the last thing you'd need to do. All the packing and disconnecting could be done before starting the engine. If you have a 'toad', there are areas outside the camping loops set aside for connecting and disconnecting those vehicles.

BTW, we are looking forward to our next WDW trip in (the fall?) 2017.

We r now in the 800 loop and they r alright but they r packed in tightly. We originally were bringing our dog but then decided not to, so they must have not changed our reservation to reflect no dog. Nice campground and very big obviously. I expected the pools to be bigger and the pads to be bigger (we r on a premium site...which I thought was the biggest they had?)

Anybody ever leave the fort in the wee hours of the morning (like 1AM)? I'm plotting my return trip, and it seems to me that it'd be easier for my situation to head out when the roads are empty and get to Fredericksburg VA w/ most of the Easter Sunday 2017 traffic in my rear view.

Is it common to see rigs pulling out at all hours of the night? I'd imagine so given all the places people come from, but I'm not sure.

Interesting idea as we r to leave the fort tomorrow morning to head back to Richmond. If I was in a motorhome I might seriously consider it

We leave shortly before checkout, but I've noticed many empty spots as we left.

Instead of paying for that last day and only using half if it you might be able to check out the day prior and boondock in the main parking lot untill you are ready to leave. I dont rember what the offical policy is but i did it for a few hours last year and headed over to Downtown disney for lunch. I remember seeing a few rvs set up with their slides out. Just might want to check with disney and ask for the offical policy first.

Thanks everybody. I actually changed my itinerary, I will be going down to the Fort for 12 nights and enjoying the 1st week of that the week prior to spring break. We'll head out and be home by Easter AM (early), thus eliminating my early Fort departure issues. Looks like I'll be heading off property at a more reasonable 6AM.
