When someone mentions a vacation in Disney world, what comes to mind? It will be Disney?s joy rides, mingling with cartoon characters and staying in luxury hotels isn't it? Most people do not know this but you do not have to stay in expensive Disney resorts or hotels when you visit Disney World during your vacations.
If you love the outdoors and nature, then Disney World actually have a huge camping ground called Fort Wilderness Campground for tent camping, RV camping or you can stay in prefabricated log cabins which are fully equipped with dining table, kitchen, color TV with VCD/DVD players and air conditioning. Not much of an adventure camp but camping with comfort and convenience. Hey, you are on a vacation after all so why not live in comfort and experience the Disney vacation hospitality?
All camp sites at Fort Wilderness Campground are arranged in loops. There are 28 loops, with loops 100-2,000 for tents and RV campers and loops 2100-2800 offering cabins for rent. All camp sites are provided with barbeque grills, a picnic table and waste containers. No fires are allowed except in the grills and designated campfire sites.
In Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground, you can find recreational and convenient facilities such as video arcades, Disney movies, dinner theater, swimming pools, beach, water ski rental, a small zoo, payphones, restaurants, convenience stores, horseback ridings, basket ball, tennis and volley ball courts....etc You will never be left with nothing to do during your camping vacation at Disney World.
Transportation in Disney Fort Wilderness
Access to other parts of Disney World is very convenient. You can get to Magic Kingdom by boat from Fort Wilderness Landing and to Epcot by monorail. Buses serve all other Disney World's attraction from the campground. However, the bus services at Fort Wilderness are somewhat chaotic and confusing. So you must be very careful in ascertaining which bus to take and are there any bus transfers to your destination to any part of Disney World.
For example, buses serving destinations outside the campground depart from 2 locations, The Reception Outpost and the Pioneer Hall. This means that you have to keep track of which destination each bus depot serves.
Weather Forecast during Disney vacation
While planning a Disney camping vacation and you plan to rent a tent or have a RV camp, you have to take the weather into consideration as you will be outdoor most of the time and tornadoes are known to have a preference for Fort Wilderness during tornado season.
