This is GREAT info as we just made reservations for the first week in June and weren't sure if we could request specific Premimum sites. Gidget and Gizmo are excited about their first trip to Disney World. Gidget is 6 months and with a barking habit we are trying to break. Any suggestions on how to keep the barking down while we are out having fun without them. They love TV so we always leave it on for them but if they hear noises they sound off.

Hi Dinnard,
Welcome to iRV2. Consider watching Cesar Milan and the Dog Wisper on the National Geographic Channel. Go here to Cesar's web site. Go here to read Cesar's tips for a barking dog.

I just came back from a long weekend at FW. Yes things are more expensive but I'll keep coming back every 3 or 4 months. I stay in the 1600 loop. It is not as expensive but that still went up to $91 a night with no cable. From what I can see they cut down a few trees to make it a little easier to manuver around the corners and they added pavement in a few turns but generally the road are as wide or narow as they have ever been. They cleaned out a lot of underbrush so you see more of your fellow campers. I never found that objectionable but some do. The pool is under construction and they are adding a water slide to it. It should be open by April. The weather is perfect and the lines are short this time of year. One of my favorite things to do is to rent a golf cart and tour the loops seeing how people decorate their sites and rigs. It adds to the fun of the place.

Thanks Denis for your input. We're ready to hit the road this weekend for Ft. Wilderness and it's one of the main reasons we purchased our own Golf Cart, taking our Fur Kids for rides and checking out all the RV's, decorations and loops!

And you're right, those Spray Anti-Bark Collars work great!

Hi ET, The DW and I were talking about buying our own Golf Cart after we figured out that with all the money We've spent on renting them over the years we could have bought a new one. Craigslist seems like a good place to start but I don't know much about them as I don't play golf.

Hi Denis,
Take a look here it is a 1/2 size cart. It may be something for you to consider.

Hey Denis

Here is a great place to learn all about Golf Carts: BuggiesGoneWild.com

We purchased a Gold Standard Club Car Precedent and customized it. Craig's List is another good place to shop for one but you better learn a few basic things before purchasing one. You can get a good used 2006 Club Car 48 volt IQ DS or Precedent Model with newer batteries for under $3,000. Ours is lifted, rear seat, custom wheels and tires, lights, turn signals, horn, etc. etc. etc. and also added a PlumQuick motor to get it to go over 25MPH since we plan on making it Street Legal for streets under 35MPH.

Ft. Wilderness was great, especially this time around. The Premium sites have improved enough to make the stay even nicer with wider and longer pads. All finished Premium Loops should handle a 45 foot coach much easier and my 39.3 was a snap.

There was a fire in a coach in Loop 800, just down from where we were and the inside of the new Allegro Bay was totaled with some damage to the outside walls and broken windows. Good news was that no one was hurt. The wrecker towed it out yesterday, Monday. Not quite sure what was the cause but most agreed they heard it was a lit candle that caught something on fire.:(

We stayed in the 400 loop for 11 days in January. The sites are wider and easier to back into. The entrances and roads are just about the same. We had no trouble getting the dish to connect with Directv, although some sites had trees blocking the rigs. They have cleaned out all the vegetation that is not native in the loops that are on the inside of the roads that circle the camground. Our loop was a pet friendly loop which was good for our furry kid. Going back the first week in December.

Ft. Wilderness Premium Sites

We just left the 1300 loop a week ago. sites have ben made wider and deeper than original. The landscaping has been redone. Limbs on trees cut back and irrigation lines installed. The pool at the Outpost was closed for major renovation. I don't know the opening date. The Orange line bus rout was very slow more than 1/2 hour wate if you just missed the buss. the Yellow line seemed to run the route much faster.
