Thanks for the correction. We were passholders so I never paid attention to it.

You are saying you drove from Ft Wilderness to the parks and found it faster and easier? And staying at the FT gives you free parking? Honestly never considered that. The few times we were there we used Disney transport just assuming the parking situation would put you far from the entrance and be a pain. Although I will admit, one late night with tired kids (and already knowing the long route the bus was going to take to get us back) we called an Uber.

Just curious...

How is Disney World now? I read that it is open.

Crowded?

One of the things I like most about staying at FT. Wilderness is access to the Disney transportation system.
I consider riding,, the boats, monorail and buses all part of the experience. I can park the car and not worry about driving the entire stay. Unless it were an emergency I would never pay vs. taking Disney transportation. I'm just not in that much of a hurry to get back to the RV. It's all vacation time!

We have gone the route of driving and parking before while at the Fort. It was a time saver most of the time. However, when we went in early December 2020, the parking lot trams were not running(part of the CoVid protocols) and you had to walk in from the lot. This negated any time saving. I don't know if the trams are running again but if not use the buses, etc.

we normally drive to each park and park ( for free with stay ) ... It is usually faster and easier for us doing it that way.... not waiting in bus lines, or anything like that..

We will take the boats to Magic Kingdom , and usually drive everywhere else....

Tropical Palms in Kissimmee is just outside the parks. Haven't been there in 10 years or so, but we used to love going there. The money you save by not being in a Disney hotel or campground more than pays for the price and inconvenience of parking.

Every park but mk. With my 8 yo at the time we were up early. So, was close to the entrance in AK, Epcott and HS. Yes parking is free if you stay on a disney property. Addtionally, i liked having a cooler of soda, water. We went for halloween 2 years ago and man it was hot! With mk the boat ride over is a part of the adventure. But now with covid, the bus is faster.
