Most people think of pricy resorts when they consider staying on Walt Disney World property, but you don’t have to stay in a five-star hotel to enjoy all the benefits of on-property reservations. The campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground let you cash in on all the benefits of any Disney hotel, such as the Disney dining plan, advanced FastPass+ reservations, and Extra Magic Hours. Yet the rates are incredibly competitive and the experience is unlike any other.

If you’re into comfortable camping, you’ll find everything you could want at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Your campsite options include:

  • Tent or pop-up campsite: 10’ x 25’ concrete pad
  • Full hook-up campsite: 10’ x 50’ concrete pad
  • Preferred campsite: 10’ x 45’ concrete pad
  • Premium campsite: 18’ x 60’ concrete pad

Any of these options will accommodate up to 10 adults, and they all offer the same selection of amenities which includes a picnic table, charcoal grill, and cold water tap. Though the campsites are in a lush wooded setting, you’re not exactly roughing it. Every site offers television and electrical hookups and free high-speed Wi-Fi.

Starting rates for the campsites begin at $53 for the tent campsite and go up to $90 and up for premium campsites.

Awesome amenities with a little extra magic

Guests at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground enjoy access to all the traditional campground amenities and activities with a little extra pixie dust on top. The campground borders Bay Lake, just like far pricier resorts including Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Contemporary Resort. A traditional campground might offer swimming or fishing in the lake. Here, you can stretch out on the sand to watch the Electrical Water Pageant float by at night. You can even glimpse Magic Kingdom fireworks from the shore.

Avid campers have probably cozied up to a campfire or two, but the singalong here has some special guests. Chip and Dale lead the festivities as guests grab a spot around the campfire to roast tasty s’mores.
