Last week I had the awesome opportunity to join my friend @ModernMami and attend a media tour of Walt Disney Worlds Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. It is a camp ground located in the middle of Walt Disney World© that allows you get away from ‘it all’ while still have ‘it all’ near by. From this resort you can get anywhere in Disney World in moments by hoping on one of their many buses or boats.
If you enjoy the outdoors, this is the perfect resort for you. You have two options on how you can spend your stay at the resort. Option one is to rent one of their many Wilderness Cabins. They are a nice balance of home style comfort with the beauty of nature. Each air-conditioned, one-bedroom cabin has room for six (queen bed, a bunk-bed and a drop down bed). They all come equipped with a full kitchen, private patios with picnic tables and a grill, cable, TV, VCR/DVD player, and daily housekeeping.
The other accommodations include an incredible campsite. There are secluded sites for all types of RV’s as well as tents. They are level, paved pads which include picnic tables with grills and hook ups available for water, sewer, electric, cable and high-speed Internet. There are also air-conditioned common areas or Comfort Stations that have private showers and laundries. Pets are welcomed.
On the grounds during your stay you have access to a pool area which includes a full size pool, a warm jacuzzi, and a kids splash zone. You can also enjoy a world of recreation including horseback riding, tennis, archery and several playgrounds. There is a nice full sized outdoor movie theater with your favorite Disney movies shown nightly, sometimes they have live performances. For dining you have two outstanding choices. There is Mickey’s Backyard BBQ or the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, both of which are all you care to eat.
Okay, I can’t give away any more, you just have to go and experience it for yourself. You can make reservations and find more information at www.wdwcamp.com. Meanwhile check out the pictures I was able to snap during my visit to the resort. There are some pictures at the end of the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party which we were able to attend after our tour of the resort. Great parade and food.
