Has anyone out there camped at Disney World in Orlando Fl lately?. We plan to camp at Ft Wilderness this year and would like any suggestions regarding the best campsite loops to stay in. We would like fairly larger sites and ones that are not as noisy as others. I would appreciate any information anyone might have.
If you want a quite campground with large sites close to Disney World and all the other attractions check into Turkey Lake Campground in Orlando. It is a 300-acre city park and I have never been there when there were more than 7 campers. If you have kids and must stay at Fort Wilderness, I can not help you because I have never stayed there.
I live in my own little world. But it's OK. They know me here.
Floridagirl ,if you go to Wilderness try to stay around 700 loop,you will be close to the little stores and the marina if your going to take the boat over to Disney.That park is very big !lot of walking if you don`t have bikes or golf cart.Just about everybody rents a golf cart if you can get one.I called and reserved one last time .Also don`t get a corner lot,the busses that can take you around the park,run all night long and you won`t get much sleep if you sleep light.As far as sites go I think they could be a little larger myself,but there are plenty of buffer between sites.Bring plenty of supplys the prices of milk,eggs etc. are super super high in the small stores.All and all I think it`s one of the nicest
parks I`ve stayed in (friendly campers their)a bit pricy but thats Disney.Oh yea make res. ahead
of time some times it`s hard to get in there.ood Luck
We have camped there twice. first time was in circle I believe 800. It was very tight and almost impossible to back into. this fall we stayed in a loop near the boat dock and it was roomey and easy to back into. I think all are back ins.
Have a good one

We stayed at Fort Wilderness in 2001 & 2002. Both times I selected loop 500. It is one of the perferred loops (closer to the lake boats, camp store, animal petting area, hoop de do revue and restaurant/bar. All sites are back in, some harder to back in to but not impossible. Some you can't put awning down or slide outs unless you pull deep into site off cement pad onto a sand pad. The sites are very deep. All hook ups with 50 amp service. Prime season (after 2/14/02) rental rate was $75.00. Prior to 2/14 $49.00. We had site #531. about 4 sites from loop entrance on the inside of the loop. Parked 32' with slide on driver's side and cement pad included the awning area. The area is cleaned & garbage removed all day throughout the day. Could not hear the buses or road traffic. We stayed there 14 days the grand children stayed at the Contempory Lodge.
Transportation by bus around every 20 minutes connecting to all Disney Areas. We did notice some cutbacks of bus service, park hours, street entertainments and cast members in Feb 2002 over Jan/Feb 2001. We stayed 14 days both times. We did have a wonderful time.
Believe staying at the Disney complex gives you a longer day of enjoyment, no long lines waiting to get into Disney, parking great distances from transportation center, waiting for shuttle etc. Do make reservations, I saw families turned away and the children were very depressed. Do enjoy Disney, it is worth it.

We spent Christmas 2001 at WDW and stayed at Ft. Wlderness. I took the recommendation of many Open Roads Forum people and requested Loop 400. It's close to the ferry, restaurant and store. We did not need to use the busses that shuttle you to these places, which saved us A LOT of time. We were at site 423 which is near the bath house, but not too close, and away from the bus traffic. We had no trouble getting our 31' TT into the site, and had plenty of room to set up camp. Enjoy! Mickey
Thanks for the info!
We live in Florida and have only been to Disney once but have never camped there. My husband likes going to the mountains of TN and NC. When you make reservations can you pick the loop and site number you want if available?.

Thanks for all the info!
We live in Fl however have only been to Disney once in 1979 and have never camped there. Are the campsites all fairly large?. When you make reservations can you tell them what loop and site number you want if available?. We don't want to stay in a loop that is near the buses as we don't want to hear them all night long.
Also what time of year is good to go?

I stayed at Disney in 2000. The sites are hard to
get into,but we enjoyed our stay. In 2001 we
stayed at the Fort Summit Koa, which is about
15 min. away. It cost us half of what we payed
in 2000. It's nice campground, and we will stay
there again this coming winter.
