Fort Wilderness in Disney World

After 2191 km of towing (25 hours in motion) we arrived at The Fort. Here for 5 nights and it's going to be great weather and a great time. If you have not been here before, you need to try it. I'm certain you would love it!

Without a doubt Fort Wilderness is the nicest campgrounds we have ever camped at. After a long hiatus we rented a Jayco Eagle 5th last October and had them put it on the site for us at The Fort. It was every bit as fun as we had remembered it. The extravagant halloween decorations adorning some of the sites were over the top. We even took a horse drawn hayride that took us on a site seeing tour to see the best decorated sites. Now that we have our x213 we are looking to upgrade our tow vehicle so that we can take it to Fort Wilderness. Preliminary plans are for next September.

I'd love to go someday but it's 5100 km (3200 miles) from here to there. I'd need a newer tow vehicle and more vacation time.

We spent Thanksgiving week last year in loop 1400 and loved it. It's hard to beat, with it pretty much in the center of the campground, easy walking distance to the pool, Meadow depot and the community campfire.

We call the fort "the bubble." Once you are there the rest of the worlds is out of focus. Great place to relax. Cleanest campground we have ever stayed at. They sanitize and clean the playground equipment every morning. We always plan extra vacation days just to hang out, walk around the trails, watch the armadillos, etc. Love it!

We love it, too. Have been 'camping' there twice; once in a class-B and Christmas 2012 in one of their cabins. While in resorts, we've been in Fort Wildernessa couple of other times to see the 'Hoop De Doo Review.' Late this year we will be there for 2 weeks - half in the parks the other half just relaxing.

What kinds of favorite things? We are going soon, third trip in 6 years. We love Hoop-de-doo Review, of course. I really enjoyed "building our own roller coaster" at Epcot. Our kids did a Secret Agent scavenger hunt in Epcot using mobile phones--that was fun and unique.

Top 3 according to Mr. Plaid: Wishes Night Time Spectacular, Hearing "have a magical day" from all the cast members, (he couldn't think of a third, it's all fun).
