Yep, warm enough to swim. I'm at Disney right now. Came for work and the campground was all booked up due to Easter. Sad no camping for us. Looks like nice weather for the weekend, crappy today.

Speaking of booked up, we have never seen Fort Wilderness so full. The lady that checked us in stated that the cabins are 100% booked, and the camp sites are also. Riding around in the golf cart reflects that. Have never seen it this full and we stop by twice a year!
I will say the staff handles it with no problems and with the usual "Mickey" smile on their face.

May depend on you. Our pool at the winter home is solar heated. Grandkids were here last week and thought the swimming was great. I get cold just sticking my hand in to grab a sample for chlorine check. Central Florida had the coldest March on record this year (average temp somewhere around 60). If you live where winter coats and snow shovels are normal, you will likely think the swimming is great. Me, I will wait a month or so.

I now know what the big fuss about is about Fort Wilderness, this is much better than staying at any other Disney resort. We are having a great time at the campgrounds.

That is a real nice unit. Congratulations on winning the "Who's the Best Grandparents" competition. The only bad thing about FW is that it spoils you for other camping spots. When you get back home you should check out fortfiends.net and DISDisney.com so you can plan your next trip because you only live 2 days from DW and you already know you will be back. I will be there in May and October and maybe December. I hope we bump into each other soon.

Davie, you are right we are already planning another trip in Aug or Sept to enjoy more time at Fort Wilderness. We are hooked.

We usually go the week before Halloween, most of the sites are decorated for halloween, cool in the mornings and evenings and warm during the day. and yes it's still warm enough to swim during the day. Been going every other year for the past 8 years. I'll be there October 19th - 27th staying at a prem site.

Heading back to Fort Wilderness the second weekend of September with the Grandkids again. This will be our second trip this year. We used only two of our four day hopper pass last April. Looking forward to another great time at Disney with the family.

We were just there in July. We paid for a premium site($$$) for our 40 ft. While we fit it was very tight. The vegetation does separate you somewhat from your neighbor. They really cram you in there. Staff was typical Disney. Personally I was not all that enamored by it. Not for the money you pay.

We love Fort Wilderness..we have stayed 2 or 3 times a year for many years...late October is very nice...pumpkin carving contests..costume parade..nice weather..they had a hay ride as well with the "headless horseman in hot pursuit"...you can see the electric parade on the water at night from the beach...also watch the fireworks...golf carts are available to rent...you can decorate them at Halloween...we also went the last week of the year and first week of the New Year...so you can take a boat across to the Magic Kingdom and watch all the New Years Eve Fireworks and then take the boat back to the campground...no traffic and parking to worry about...everything is decorated for the holidays...also take the boat across to the Fort Wilderness Lodge and sit by the awesome fireplace in the lobby...all transportation is included with your campground site....be it mono rail, bus, boat, etc...also if you make any purchases while you are at another resort...they will send them to the "country store" in the campground...
