Disney Rewards Insider: Stories and tips to get the most out of your Disney Rewards

Summer Camping at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

Warm summer months always inspire thoughts of camping: rustic escapes, natural beauty and… Mickey Mouse ears? When it comes to vacations, Walt Disney World® Resort really does have something for everyone, including those who love the great outdoors. Read on to see all the reasons why Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is an awesome option for the whole family. And to help make your adventure possible, take advantage of special vacation financing on select Disney vacation packages when you book your getaway with your Disney® Visa® Credit Card.1

Lovely Lodging and Happy Camping

When it comes to accommodations, there are enough options at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground to fit most anyone’s expectations for a camping experience.

Your family can book a campsite for tents, vans or RVs of all sizes—equipped with cold water taps, electrical hook-ups, picnic tables, charcoal grills and WiFi. Each style and size of campsite provides views of nature, where the forest landscape around you is designed to enhance privacy and give you the sense of getting away from it all… while still being just around the corner from all the fun. If you have a large family (or just want more room), redeem your Disney Rewards Dollars toward upgrading to a deluxe option, like the Premium Meadow Campsite.2

And if you’re looking for more amenities and modern-day conveniences, opt for a cabin. The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground provide plenty of space for your group, and they include an essential feature of any summer camp, the bunk bed! A full kitchen with fridge, toaster and microwave oven also makes this a great option for longer stays, and Guests can bring or pre-order their own groceries for delivery to cook up some fun. (Don’t forget: You can earn 2% in Disney Rewards Dollars when you use your Disney® Premier Visa® Card for purchases at grocery stores.)2 The Cabins are also a dog-friendly Resort option, so when we say the whole family can stay, we mean it!

Fresh Air and Fun Everywhere

If your crew wants to bring their summer camp daydreams to life, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground has so many activities you’ll need to rise with the sun to fit them all in.

Enjoy two different pools, one for making a splash with play areas and a waterslide, and another for leisurely floats, including a whirlpool spa. Schedule a session at the archery experience that teaches Guests how to hit the bullseye. And tackle a new family tradition with a guided fishing trip on a select Disney waterway.

Or hoof it on over to the all-new Tri-Circle-D Ranch, the real working stables home to the horses who appear at Magic Kingdom® Park. You can get in the saddle and take a ride—including pony rides for little ones.

Finally, gather in the fresh evening air for Movies Under the Stars and enjoy family-friendly cinema with a side of stargazing.

Camping Fort Wilderness Pool

Giddy Up and Get Around!

Exploring the campgrounds with all the various modes of transportation is part of the fun! Traverse the expanse of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground by booking a rental electric golf cart and zipping around to discover every little Disney detail. Or you can get around and get some exercise with several jogging, biking and hiking routes. And, believe it or not, a Segway tour offers a rolling route along some adventurous back trails, too! Or, take a complimentary water taxi across Bay Lake and feel the wind in your hair as you take in the view before docking at Magic Kingdom® Park.

Chow Down with Fun Dining

Wandering around all that woodland wonder will work up a wild appetite, and breakfast, lunch and dinner are all available at the campgrounds. Enjoy sweet and savory comfort food from P&J’s Southern Takeout. There’s also the Meadow Snack Bar next to the Meadow Swimmin’ Pool. Or you can rustle up some grub at Crockett’s Tavern and tuck into a plate of nachos or chicken wings from the bar. You can redeem your Disney Rewards Dollars at any dining location that accepts credit cards.2

With all the excitement, adventure and entertainment available around Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, you can see why this has become a favorite vacation option for Guests. Start planning your Disney summer camping trip, and book with your Disney Visa Credit Card for special vacation financing on select Disney vacations packages.1 All that’s left to say is: “Yee-haw!”
