Go and enjoy one of the most relaxing experiences in campgrounds. Park your car and use the transportation system. Remember you are a resort guest the same as any of the expensive hotels.

In my opinion, prepare yourself for the best campground around! Everything you should want is there. We try to go there at least 2 or 3 times a year. Well, it does help that we keep season tickets for WDW.

For a good site for more info try http://www.disboards.com and go to the Camping board.

One of the best campgrounds that we have been to. We don't go there often as we only live 28 miles from it but the saying is so true you'll drive miles and really the best thing is right in your backyard.

Agree: spend at least one day enjoying the campground as it has a lot of activities a lot are free. Walking and biking or renting a golf cart are the easiest ways to get arround the campground. You fee includes transportation to the parks, hotels, water parks, and downtown disney and pleasure island. Hoop T Doo Review is fun but expensive like everything else. Take time to read the stuff they give you it will answer a lot of questions.

You're in for a real treat! Try to get a site near the Marina. You'll have a shorter walk to the boat to Magic Kingdon and the Transporation Center.

Some of the best stuff for a 4 year old are free. There are Armadillos running around all over the place, free nightly movies with characters, etc.

Enjoy. I'm jealous!

We took both set of Grandkids there this summer. It is a great campground. I would recommend that you reserve a golf cart, for we think it was indespensible. Call early for the golf cart for they go very, very fast.

dooger1963, WELCOME to iRV2!!

Are you saying you were disappointed in the Hoop De Doo Review AND Fort Wilderness,or just the
review itself and it's food?

I've been to Fort Wilderness several times, we always try and stay in the 1200 section as it's near a small playground and a transit stop.

I do recommend taking a "towed" car if you're going by motor home as it's easier to do Sea World and some other sites by car....

We've been to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness several times and found it to be one of the most enjoyable experiences of our stay. It's a hoe-down style entertainment and has an all-you-can-eat dinner. It wasn't inexpensive, nothing at Disney is.

We felt it was a fair value for the amount paid considering that we were at Disney.

I second the Hoop-De-Doo, alot of fun. We are trying the Luau at the Polynisan this summer. Remember, you can go to any restraunt on the Disney property too. We've got to the one at Wilderness Lodge and recommend it highly. Also like being near the trading post for a site-we are in the 600 loop this time. Very easy walk to anywhere from that area. Also don't miss at the Magic Kingdom Buzzlightyear Space Ranger ride-it'll bring you back to the early arcade days and it's a blast. This will be our 9th trip to Disney and we can't wait!
