Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground sits on 750 wooded acres in the Magic Kingdom resort area. It’s located on one of the only natural lakes you’ll see on Walt Disney World property – Bay Lake. It’s a large resort complex consisting of over 400 Wilderness cabins and almost 800 campsites. There’s sure to be a spot that’s just perfect for your group of happy campers!
The campsites can accommodate anything from a tent or pop-up camper to a full size RV. The partial hook-up sites for tents and pop-up campers have the basics – water and electricity. Full hook-up sites also supply sewer hook ups. Both the preferred and premium hook-up sites have all the comforts of home, including cable. The preferred sites are located close to Pioneer Hall and are within walking distance to the boat transportation to Magic Kingdom. Bus transportation is also nearby. Premium sites can accommodate a larger R.V. and are usually located close to the bus stops. Premium Meadow campsites can also accommodate a large R.V. and are located close to the Meadows Trading Post, the bike barn and the campfire area.
Each cabin can accommodate up to six guests. In the bedroom, you’ll find a queen-size bed, a bunk bed and a separate TV. In the kitchen/living room area, there’s room for 2 more to sleep on the double-size sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you need to make coffee in the morning or cook a full course meal. Outside, there’s a large deck with a picnic table and charcoal grill. Daily housekeeping is also provided. Each cabin and campsite has it’s own small driveway so your vehicle will conveniently be located right outside your ‘door’.
The campground is divided into loops. The campsites on each loop have access to a comfort station nearby with rest rooms, private showers, ice dispensers, laundry facilities, a resort phone and an information board. As far as recreation, Fort Wilderness has it all! There are 2 stores located on the property, 2 pools – one quiet pool and one complete with a slide and kiddie area, pony rides, horse drawn wagon rides, tennis courts and even a dog park for your furry family member! You can rent a bike or a canoe and go exploring on your own in a very natural setting.
There’s an internal bus system for locations within the campground. That also provides access to an external bus system that takes you anywhere else on Walt Disney World property. Golf carts are also available for rent for internal use. Head on down to the boat dock in the evening to have a view of the fireworks above Cinderella’s Castle – they even pipe in the music!
