Disney Fort Wilderness Advice

Planning on staying at Fort Wilderness this November, with our 40' Class A. Which rings / circles do you guys recommend ? We will have our dog with us so we need a " pets allowed " area, and would prefer an area closer to the ferry landing.
Thanks for your help !

700 circle is the best for big rigs, 400's not bad either.

The 600 loop is our favorite. It has easy access to the Meadow Trading Post, swimming pool and bus stops. Each site is 18' wide and will accommodate your coach nicely. Enjoy your visit, lots to do there.

Great website site when your planning a trip to Fort Wilderness. We just go back from staying in 100 loop in our 38'. The 100, 200, and 300 loops can get tight for a large MH. Most people recommend the 1400 loop.

We will be going in oct. requested loop 600 there is no guarantee what you will get and don't know till you get there. If you are going to the parks and doing a food plan you need to make reservations already.

300 loop is close to the marina and dog park. We've been there a number of times. Seems there is always dogs in the no-dog loops so it probably doesn't matter.

600 loop is very popular with big rigs, you absolutely do not want to be in the 100 or 200 loop with your rig, sites are the smallest other than the pop-up, tent area which I believe is the 1800 and 1900 loops. 300 and 500 loops are very close to dog park, and for convenience to the boat landing 700 loop is great, and also popular with big rigs, however there is no comfort station on that loop, have to walk across street to 400/500 loop for that. We love the 1400 loop because it is close to pool, movies and store and we usually have grandkids to tote along, but that is a pet free loop. Have stayed in nearly every other loop at some point, and they are all wonderful. They are now split into categories by amenities like the size of the concrete pad, type of grill, etc.. The only one I was dissapointed with is the 100-200 loop which they charge premium price for only to find out they are the smallest of all sites but very convenient to boat transportation and you don't need to wait for buses, since we usually rent a cart we don't worry about that anymore. Fortfeinds is a good resource for all this information too.

Have fun, I have never had a bad day at the Fort.

Most of the loops are now pet friendly (but not all). I agree, stay away from the 100, 200, and 300 loops. They are tight to impossible for a big rig. The 500 loop is literally across the street from the dog park and has some big rig sites, as does the 400 loop, one loop closer to the boat docks. Other good choices, should you want to be able to walk to the docks, are the previously mentioned 700 and 600 loops, and I might add the 800 loop. Much of the 600 loop is quite open so satellite reception is possible on many of those sites. It is also right on the pond behind the Meadows outpost and the canoe livery, so it is very popular. Take bikes with you and most every loop will be a short ride from the boat docks.

The entire campground is beautiful and you'll have a good time no matter where you end up.

There are some great discussions on this board about Fort Wilderness and there are specific loops that you should look into because they are pet loops. If you tell them you have a dog they will put you in a pet loop. The FF.net web site has an app for your smartphone with a picture and description of every site. It also has a copy of a fax you can send to the Fort 2 weeks before requesting a specific site. They report good results with there suggested procedure. No matter how much you try to plan or don't plan you will still have a great time. I suggest you just spend a day or two at the Fort and don't go to the theme parks. Its good for the budget as the parks are now $100 a day per ticket.

All sites are good. I would just add that 1200-1300 loops are 20+ feet longer than the ones mentioned. You can download an iphone app called "Fort Wilderness Sites" and they list dimensions of all sites.
