Leaving Thursday morning for Fort Wilderness, planning on staying Thursday evening somewhere close by since our reservations don't start until Friday. Any suggestions on where to stay in or outside Orlando?

Have yet to stay here (www.tropicalpalmsresortfl.com) but have reservations for last weekend in October. Have heard nice things about the facility but the iffy things about the staff.

Fort Wilderness or off campus

I have stayed at both Fort Wilderness and Tropical Palms and I like both. There are advantages to both and disadvantages. If you have small kids Fort Wilderness is better IMHO. If you have bigger kids or no kids I think Tropical Palms is nicer.

Fort Wilderness is nice because you come and go to the parks via the bus or ferry several times a day. It's nice because you can take kids into one of the parks in the AM to beet the crowds then come back for a lunch. (Food is expensive inside the parks). Take a nap, then go back for afternoon and until dark to watch the fireworks. If you rent a golf cart you can run to their beach or the pool. The little kids like the campfire with Chip and Dale. The landscaping is top notch but the trees are actually so thick that a big RV can be hard to maneuver.

Tropical Palms is nice because it's walkable to a lot of restaurants and has a carnival place nearby called "Old Town" ....not sure of name, . At night it has a lot of carnival rides and mini-golf and nearly every weekend there is a car show. The pool is great and they have a nice landscaping for the adults to sit out at night and relax.

I think FW is more expensive but if you have never done so try it at least once.
