Fort Wildernes Entrance - Photo by Sharon HildrumFort Wilderness Resort and Campground is a wonderful development and the ideal camping experience inside Walt Disney World. The only problem with this development is its size. The 1192 site park is divided into a number of loops containing closely spaced (yet well maintained) camp spurs. The restrooms are well maintained and recreational opportunities abound. Because of its size and layout, bus service is available between each loop and campground facilities. Fort Wilderness does offer areas for pets and our site (1832) was in such an area. The site itself was nicely screened from other sites but was quite cramped for our 33 foot triple slide fifthwheel. In fact, the neighbor across the road had to move his car for us to back into our site. Smaller units would have less problems.

Campsite 1832, Fort Wilderness  Photo by Norman HildumThe Walt Disney World staff members were always friendly and helpful and we have no complaints other than the relatively small site. We were able to access the internet from the main lodge and had no problems with noisy neighbors or pets. Our cost was 48.50 per night for full hook-ups (this included a $3.00 per night charge for our dog). Remember, if you camp of-site you will have a $6.00 per day parking fee within the park. We had the opportunity to visit all the Walt Disney World Kingdoms and MGM Studios. Our stay was fun filled and very enjoyable. As SavvyCampers, we would surely stay here again.
