Fort Wilderness Questions


#1

Hello, everyone! FIRST POST EVER!:happy:

  1. Loop recommendations for a full hook-up site that allows pets. We were looking at loops 1500 - 1900. Any suggestions? We camp with a 2001 Coleman Niagara pop up with a slide out.

  2. Regarding full hook-up sites as opposed to preferred sites: If you don’t have a sewer hook up or a gray water tank - where can you dump dirty dish water?

  3. ICE - I have heard it’s FREE at the comfort stations and also heard it’s $2 a bag. Which is true?

  4. Camping with our dogs - I assume Disney will need to see proof of shots when we check in. Is there anything else I need to make sure I have with me?

  5. Does Disney offer a discount on golf cart rentals for AAA members?

THANK YOU!!!

Sorry I can’t help you about Fort Wilderness, but I wanted to say WELCOME TO MOUSEBUZZ.

Thank you for the welcome! How do you get your Disney Countdown below your signature?

I just wanted to welcome you to Mousebuzz, but unfortunately I can’t help you with any of your camping questions. You can’t access the countdown until after you post a certain number of times. (I think it’s 100 posts, but I could be wrong). I’m sure someone who really knows will post shortly. Have a great trip and please do a trip report when you get back. I would love to hear all about your vacation.

Wow… It’s been so long since I was at FW but I have never heard about checking shot records unless they are staying at the kennel but I could be wrong :huh: . I would def try to contact someone at the front desk at the resort for secific questions. Welcome to MB! :biggrin:

  1. Loop recommendations for a full hook-up site that allows pets. We were looking at loops 1500 - 1900. Any suggestions? We camp with a 2001 Coleman Niagara pop up with a slide out. The 1500 loop is pretty close to the pool if I remember seeing it correctly last week.

  2. Regarding full hook-up sites as opposed to preferred sites: If you don’t have a sewer hook up or a gray water tank - where can you dump dirty dish water? Full Hook-ups have a dump spot on the camp site- actually I think all their sites do. There is no general dump area.

  3. ICE - I have heard it’s FREE at the comfort stations and also heard it’s $2 a bag. Which is true? Far from free! It is $2 a bag. Make sure you bring someone with you as it can be a 2 person job when the machine decides to be generous as you might get 1 1/2 bags out of one.

  4. Camping with our dogs - I assume Disney will need to see proof of shots when we check in. Is there anything else I need to make sure I have with me?
    No need to provide any records unless they are staying in the kennel. I do believe there is a pet charge of $5 per day, but not 100 % sure as I do not travel with my dog.

  5. Does Disney offer a discount on golf cart rentals for AAA members? I think they only discount they ‘might’ offer on golf carts is for Passholders.

Check out this link on AllEars… Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground Fact Sheet
This link also includes a map. I LOVE staying in the 100 loop as it is so close to the marina, settlement store, trails end, big playground, etc. Plus I love to hear the fireworks, Electric Light Parade and boat whistles- the 100 loop is the perfect spot for all of these!

To get the Countdown you must be here 3 months and have at least 100 posts.
Welcome to MB and we hope you enjoy your stay. If you’re like the rest of us you won’t want to ever check-out as it’s the closest place to our favorite home away from home.:mickey:

Welome to MB. You are going to get GREAT information on this site!! I have always wanted to stay at Fort Wilderness…I think we will on our next trip.

Not a camper (although if I was FW would be my first choice!) but welcome to MouseBuzz!:happy:

A note on AAA - it’s worth it to drop in and ask about any “perks” they might have for WDW. We did, and they gave us a Diamond Parking Pass.
