Wink What's the best way to visit Fort Wilderness?

If you are planning a stay at Fort Wilderness, what is the best approach to see a much as possible, and not get burned out.

How long should you stay?
What time of year for best crowds?
What's the best way to get from the camp to the parks?

We spent 6 days there and went to each park for one day and Epcot two days.

We would take what ever bus came into the main pickup area at Ft Wilderness in the morning and hit the park it was going to.

All buses are free as are the boat trips.

We were there the second week in February from Monday through Saturday. No crowds until Friday and Saturday and even then it wasn't bad.

-Length of stay really depends on what you like to do in a day, but at least a week to see everything. We don't like to be in the park more than 4 to 5 hours a day. Maybe because we are a little older and lazy.

-Always crowds, winter months are probably best but can get cold there sometimes too

-Free transportation from the campground to anywhere in the park. Buses Boats and trains run every few minutes. Personal auto not needed unless you want to see some of the local attractions outside the park.

Minimum of one week, two weeks would be great. More time allows for a slower pace. There's a lot to see on the property outside of the theme parks too, especially if you've never been here before. You'll want to visit the other resorts to take it all in.

Basically, the best times to visit would be when school is in session, no holidays. Our favorite times are the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas (but you do NOT want to be there for either - crowds are shoulder to shoulder) or mid January to mid February. The weather is great, the crowds generally low and few if any bothersome bugs. The Thanksgiving to Christmas period ads the wow factor in the form of their over the top Christmas decorations and festivities.

You can get to anywhere on the Disney property, any of the theme parks, any of the resorts, even their shopping, dining and entertainment district, Downtown Disney, from anywhere else on the property. From the campground there is a bus stop at every camping loop that will take you to one of two general transportation areas where you can hop on a bus (or a boat) to your desired destination. Your only limitation would be anywhere outside of Disney. For that you'll need your own transportation, or you can call a cab.
