IF you are having issues getting a reservation, drop me a PM. I am a Disney travel agent as side work and will work on it for you. I have already booked for a couple of RV.net folks.

It wasn't asked but FW is the only place on the Disney property that you can stay in with your pets. But you might be cautious about leaving them in the MH in July.
On a scale of 1-10, I rate FW a 12-12-12.

Holy heat wave I think wife and kids want to go to Disney this July. So is ft wilderness worth it? Any other campgrounds? Worth it to drag the Jeep behind motorhome? I’ve only been to magic kingdom one time. This time would be 4 day package. What everyone thoughts?


We have spent the week of July 4th at the Fort for the last 2 years, and we have this year booked. We have annual passes and go multiple times per year. So we don't try to ride everything or see everything. We spend a lot of time at the Fort and in the pool or riding bikes/golf cart. It will super hot and super crowded. If you spend all day in the parks you will need a vacation from the vacation. My advice is to rope each morning then leave by 11am. Hit the pool, relax at the camper, go on a resort tour, or visit Disney Springs, then head back into the park late in the evening. Take advantage of the extra magic hours. 11am to 6pm at the parks will be a crowded hot hell.

Took our whole family to Disney for our 40th Anniversary. It was August, and it was very hot and humid. Have stayed in Ft. Wilderness several times, and recommend it for just about everything. Convenience cannot be understated. Pricy? Yes, but CGs anywhere near MIckey are close to same cost and not nearly as good. (One was Tropical Palms and we will never go back). If you are only going to be there 4 days and do not plan to go anywhere else but Disney, no need for a car. You can get everywhere using Disney transportation and really don't need to leave the parks. Suggest renting a golf cart though. Great for around the CG, which is like an extra resort in and of itself. Yes, they're not cheap, but it was worth it for us. Best thing about staying in Ft Wilderness is being able to save a few $ by eating meals 'at home' & you can come and go as you like - not stuck all day and evening in the park to 'get your money's worth'. We would be in the park early, break back to the RV for lunch (and naps if required), go back to park, return for pool time and dinner, and then go back for evening and fireworks. Couldn't make this work when outside Disneyworld.

July sounds good. July, 1989. Disney anything is too expensive and too crowded now and I don't want to pay a lot of money to watch rich (or foolish) people who pay a lot more money get to cut in lines. I can stand in line at the DMV for a lot less money, and they have air conditioning. But I'm not going to do that, either. I went 10 years ago. I used to say that in about 20 years I'll want to go again. I don't think I would go again in 50 years. Is Universal Park any less crowded and expensive?

Just outside the parks near Celebration is a campground called Tropical Palms. We spent several winters there and liked it a lot. For that you would need a vehicle to get into the parks (and pay to park it).

This is what we did the last time we were there. We LOVE Tropical Palms, great little campground and close to Old Town which is a cool walk to some nice restaurants.

We’ve stayed at FW many times in all seasons.
It’s 100% worth it IF you intend on doing the parks. Warning...plan to bring all food and misc. pantry/camper needs because coming and going from there is very time consuming, plus it’s Orlando which has become one of the worst driving experiences in the universe.

Also, bring bug zappers, citronella candles, bee keeper suits and a bulk supply of Benadryl cream. The can of bug spray they give you at check-in will barely get you through the night ;-)
