Did you know you can go camping at Walt Disney World?
That’s right. Disney owns and operates a full campground called Fort Wilderness. Rates start at $49 a
night and go up to $139. You can do old fashioned tent camping or even haul your own RV from home.
There are different types of sites for rent from basic tent camping areas to full services hookups with
cable tv access.
There are several companies that run out of central Florida that will rent you an RV to
stay in while you are at Disney World. They bring the camper to your site, set it up, and even put the
A/C on for you. The option to camp while you are visiting the mouse offers families a more affordable
option than staying at a Disney owned and operated resort. Like renting a Disney hotel room you can
just rent the site or you can add a package to your stay. That means that you could have a dining plan,
and/or park tickets to your stay.
When thinking about cost of a Disney vacation the option to stay at a
camp group really has the potential to save a family a lot of money. You could drive from home, bring
your food, and bring your own text, popup, travel trailer, or RV. The only thing you would need to worry
about would be park tickets. Because Fort Wilderness is a Disney owned and operated resort you get all
the great benefits of staying on Disney property included in your stay like Extra Magic Hours, and free
There are several places to eat at the campground if you don’t feel like cooking.
There are two dinner shows Mickey’s Backyard Barbeque and Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. There is also
Trail’s End Restaurant that serves an affordable buffet and a food court style eatery Crocket’s Tavern.
There are two snack bars as well. There are several recreation options and pools to swim in. Fort
Wilderness is worth looking into if your family enjoys camping or you are looking for a more affordable
option for your Disney trip.
