Guests like you make vacations better!

What we love

  • Being up close with nature, away from the hustle and bustle of it all
  • It's one of the most affordable ways to stay on-site at the Walt Disney World® Resort
  • Being a boat ride away from Magic Kingdom® Park; also from Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Wilderness Lodge
  • Aspiring archers can channel their inner Merida with lessons on-site
  • The little ones will love miniature pony rides at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch
  • You can get take out from the Trail's End restaurant 
  • Meeting Chip and Dale (for free!) at the Campfire Sing-A-Long
  • Horse-drawn wagon and carriage rides, plus kayak and canoe rentals!

Keep in Mind

  • Cabins, which are in loops 2011-2800, are further away from the main Meadow pool, although they have their own quiet pool
  • The hotel charges $19 per night (sales tax included) for overnight self-parking
  • The resort is very large; uses internal buses to transport guests
  • While the camping and wilderness theme appeals to children, the resort is not overtly "Disney" themed
  • Buses make multiple pickups/dropoffs, and they can get crowded

Notable Facts

  • At Christmastime each year, regulars return string lights and decorations from their campsites
  • The resort opened in 1971, a month after the opening of the Walt Disney World® Resort
  • Fort Wilderness includes a primitive campsite area used by scout troops, schools and other campers called Creekside Meadow
  • The resort was originally home to a steam-powered railway, which provided transportation around the resort and the nearby River Country water park; it was dismantled in the 1980s

Frog Family Tips

  • Arrive early for the Campfire Sing-A-Long to meet Chip and Dale
  • Factor in extra time to the theme park if you are taking the buses, as you'll likely be making multiple stops at the resort before you transfer
  • Bring your own bikes and golf carts; Disney also rents them

Best For

  • Families, especially larger families, who like the outdoors and want a less expensive alternative to a hotel but want the benefits of FastPass+, free Disney transportation and Extra Magic Hours Benefit

  • General Walt Disney World® Resort Benefits

    Staying on-site at an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel gives you several great complimentary benefits, including transportation and more. You'll be able to make FastPass+ reservations 60-days advance of your check-in, whereas those staying off-site can make reservations up to 30 days in advance of each day of their theme park visit. FastPass+ allows you to pre-book up to three ride or attraction reservations per day. 

    The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

    • Free MagicBands - You will have MagicBands shipped to your home (within the U.S.) or provided upon arrival. MagicBands are used as hotel keys and allow you to touch-and-go while entering the parks (Valid Theme Park admission required), using FastPass+ or PhotoPass locations, and making purchases. 
    • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
    • Free Airport Service - With Disney's Magical Express® Transportation, the convenient motorcoach service transports you between Orlando International Airport and your Official Walt Disney World® Hotel. Have your MagicBands ready to go at the airport before boarding. Learn more about Disney's Magical Express® Transportation.
    • Free Park Transportation - Along with complimentary transportation to the airport, you'll also receive free transportation to all Disney Theme Parks! Depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Monorail, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
    • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants and more.
    • Extended Theme Park Hours - With Extra Magic Hours Benefit, you can enter the park on select days one hour early, or stay an extra two hours after park closing. If you want to be able to stay at a park during regular hours, but use your EMH for a different park, you'll need a Park Hopper ticket. Read more about Extra Magic Hours Benefit and when we recommend you use them. (Valid Theme Park admission and Resort ID required)
    • Kids' Programs - The Official Walt Disney World® Hotels offer childcare services for a cost when parents want a night out. They usually require advanced reservations, so be sure to look into the resort's specific program!
