When you’re trying to decide where to stay at Walt Disney World, the choices can become overwhelming – they have so many great Resorts to choose from that it can be tough to narrow it down! Personally, I love Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground – and here’s why:
It’s a beautiful place – large, well-kept campsites, great pools, tons of wooded trails, and maybe best of all it’s quiet and peaceful – it’s a great place to relax and enjoy nature, and best of all you’re in the middle of all the Disney action!
The nightly fireside sing sing along and movie is a great family activity – and oh – did I mention it’s hosted by Chip and Dale? I LOVED this as a kid – getting snacks and singing songs and then watching a Disney movie – doesn’t get any better than that!
Fresh nature air makes me hungry – so I like to head over to Trail’s End – the on-site restaurant that serves up a delicious buffet of items like fried chicken and biscuits (there’s a lot more than that, but those are my favorites and they still make me drool to this day!)
If you’re not sure about the whole camping/”roughing it” thing – don’t worry, Disney’s got you covered – you can stay in one of their cabins which include electricity, a TV, a bathroom, and a kitchen (utensils/cookware included!) – so you can still stay in nature, but with all the comforts of home
We stayed at Fort Wilderness a bunch of times when I was younger – I loved everything about it, and can’t wait to go back with my son when he’s older. It’s a great Resort choice for those who don’t want to stay in a traditional “hotel” room, plus you can’t beat the scenery!
