“the only campground in Walt Disney World”
Most people might not realize that in the 750 acres of pine forest just between Epcot and Magic Kingdom hides Disney's Fort Wilderness, one of the most awesome RV parks in America! Remember how much fun you had going to camp? Well, Fort Wilderness is basically that… but better. There’s arts and crafts for the kids all day long, well-stocked fishing holes, movies under the stars, campfire singalongs, and even fireworks every single night. But this place has one thing that your camp didn’t: wilderness tours…on an all-terrain segway. You can hop on one of these futuristic vehicles and buzz through the woods on a two hour guided tour of the Wilderness lodge, the Tri-Circle-D ranch, and Bay Lake, where you’ll hear trivia about the park and get up close to the local wildlife. It’s kind of like having Robocop as your camp counselor. But, you know, friendlier. The best part about Fort Wilderness, though? When you’ve filled up on s’mores and told your last ghost story by the campfire, all you’ve gotta do is hop on a boat and you’re headed just across the lake to the Magic Kingdom! The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort provide an idyllic setting for a family vacation. Nestled on 750 wooded acres of lush pine and cypress trees, the cabins provide all the comforts of home wrapped in a rustic, American Frontier theme. Time seems to slow down while you wander the quiet trails, and roaming ducks, deer and rabbits add to the sense that you are far away from the bustle of modern civilization. Location This Resort is located within the Magic Kingdom Area. Guests may also take advantage of the shuttle bus service to the famous Walt Disney World Theme Parks and Downtown Disney Area. Rooms The comfortable accommodation units all come with an ensuite bathroom with bathtub, shower and hairdryer.

Great place to stay - love the amenities - ride the boat around, group campfires, movies, pool, good walking, nice camp store, nice wooded feel, etc... We use it to see the surrounding area and other parks too while in the area.
Fort Wilderness is a very special experience. Great camp sites, and cabins. restrooms with showers and laundry. The best is the free shuttle buses that go everywhere you want to go. Restaurant is expensive but has good food. Two camp stores with camping items, basic food and great coffee in the morning. Several swimming pools and canoes. Free movies every night outdoors with popcorn and smores. Hikeing, equestrian and tons of things to do. Fishing is catch and release.
This is my family's "home away from home" whenever we go to Disney World. We have stayed at some other resorts, but always end up missing Fort Wilderness. We have camped in their sites and stayed in the cabins. There is so much to do at Fort Wilderness that you could almost never leave to go to the parks! Two pools, two stores, fishing, archery, playgrounds, hiking, movies, campfires, restaurants, a beach, boat rentals...I could go on and on. You can hop a boat or a bus and go to Wilderness Lodge to eat at their restaurants as well. I can't say enough good things about Fort Wilderness...it just doesn't get any better than this!
We stayed with our 3 dogs in our pull behind camper in January 2016. The Campground is beautiful. Each site offers privacy and plenty of room. Wooded and shady. Lots of things to do. Lighted Water parade and fireworks at the beach each night. Restaurant and pub near the boat launch which takes you to The Magic Kingdom, Wilderness Lodge or the Contemporary Resort. Campfires and movies outdoors. To cold for us southerners to go swimming but a great pool. Bicycle and golf car rentals. Bus transportation to and from all parks, Disney resorts, The Boardwalk and Disney Springs. We had a wonderful week long stay. I even had the chance to see a deer one evening.
