Fort Wilderness Resort. One of the original Disney resorts (the Polynesian and Contemporary were the others), Fort Wilderness Resort offers a number of sporting and outdoors activities. For 90 minutes you can get in some target shooting with an archery guide who oversees novice and expert marksmen (ages 6 and up). Nonresort guests are welcome to join campers, and the $39 fee includes use of the compound bow and arrows, plus instruction. You can book up to 180 days in advance. But that's not all of the outdoor activities you can enjoy here.

Tame backwoods horseback trail rides from here begin at 8:30 am and continue through mid- to late afternoon. Children must be at least nine years old and 48 inches tall to ride, and adults must weigh less than 250 pounds. Trail rides are $45 for 45 minutes; hours vary by season. You must check in 30 minutes prior to your ride, and reservations must be made at least one day ahead. Both horseback riding and the campground are open to nonresort guests.

A two-hour Wilderness Back Trail Adventure Segway tour is done on an "off-road" version of the vehicle, and begins with a training session to get you acquainted with its operation. Call ahead for reservations. The cost is $90 per person, and you must be at least 16 and carry a photo ID. If you'd prefer to rent a bicycle, stop by the Bicycle Barn where they rent for $9 an hour or, even better, $18 per day.

For fishing, rods and tackle can be found at the Fort Wilderness Bike Barn, open daily 9–5, for fishing in the canals around Fort Wilderness Resort. Rod and reel with tackle is about $12.50 for the day, but you must be at least 18 to rent here. If you'd like to go fishing with a guide, it costs $270 for an excursion for up to five people. 4510 N.
