Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground sits on 750 wooded acres. It’s located on one of the only natural lakes you’ll see on Disney property – Bay Lake. It’s quite a large complex consisting of 409 cabins and 784 campsites.
The campsites can accommodate anything from a tent or pop-up camper to a big-rig RV. All sites are equipped with electricity and water, full hook-up sites also add a sewer hook-up, and preferred and premium sites have all the amenities of home, including cable hook-up. All have an air-conditioned comfort stations nearby with restrooms, private showers, ice dispensers, laundry facilities and resort phones. Premium sites are so designated because of their location in the campground. They’re close to it all!
Each Cabin can accommodate up to six guests. In the bedroom, you’ll find a double bed, a bunk bed, a closet with a pack & play and a TV. In the kitchen/living room area, there’s a Murphy bed that pulls down from the wall, a small play-table for the kids, a couch and another t.v. There’s a full size, fully equipped kitchen and dining area that has everything you need to make coffee in the morning or make a full course meal. The dining table can sit six easily. Between the kitchen area and bedroom is the full sized bathroom. Outside, there’s a large deck with a picnic table and charcoal grill. They even provide daily housekeeping!
Bus transportation is available throughout the resort to get to the parks, and boat transportation will take you to the Magic Kingdom, the Wilderness Lodge or the Contemporary Resort. There are two swimming pools, one with a themed slide and a kiddie area; and plenty of playgrounds. You can play tennis, shuffleboard, arcade games; rent a canoe, a bicycle or a golf cart; visit the petting farm, or go horseback riding. The stable is located in the campground that houses the horses used on Main Street and for the hay ride – you can even watch a blacksmith making horseshoes in the blacksmith shop! There are two stores to buy supplies and gifts, a bike and walking trail throughout the property, and even an exercise trail through the woods that leads to The Wilderness Lodge.
At night, you can view the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom down in the dock area. They pipe in the music! There’s even a special water pageant each evening that circles the resorts on the lake in the Magic Kingdom area. With all there is to do at the campground, you may find yourself trying to squeeze in a few days at the parks!
