The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort Review

Bringing a tent or RV is one of the cheapest ways to stay on WDW property, especially considering that sites in this 700-acre campground can accommodate up to 10. A real community of repeat guests has arisen in the past couple of decades, and Christmas time brings a decorating frenzy of lights. Tent sites with water and electricity are real bargains; RV sites cost more, but are equipped with electric, cable TV, Internet access, water and sewage hookups, as well as outdoor charcoal grills and picnic tables. The campground has 15 strategically located comfort stations where you can take a hot shower, as well as laundry facilities, restaurants, pools, and a general store. There's no lack of entertainment options, including a campfire and marshmallow roast with Disney characters and a Disney movie, and the Hoop-Dee-Doo nightly dinner show at Pioneer Hall.
