Did you know that you can take your family camping in Walt Disney World? If your family enjoys being in the outdoors but would also like to enjoy a fun field Disney vacation the good news is that you can do both. Even better is the fact that you can cut down on your vacation expense considerably. Staying at the campground still gives you all of the benefits of staying at a Disney World resort. Below you will find a few tips to planning your next Walt Disney World vacation via the campground at Disney Fort Wilderness Campsites. For more specific information on the campground you can click here to take a look at a campground fact sheet.
First set the date
The first thing you will want to do is decide when you want to go. In my research I have found that the best time to stay at the campgrounds are between the months of September, and October, and between the months February to May. During these times you will find that it is a lot less crowded. Of course it does depend on your families circumstances. Also if you book early and before a major holiday you will find the prices at the campground to be a lot more affordable. If you find a special you may be able to book your campground for as low as $35 but on average the prices are between $46, and $75, per site, per night. With the purchase of best cabin tents, the fixation of the time should be done. The booking can be done in advance to provide wonderful experience to the person. The spending of the vacations will be excellent with friends and relatives. The average prices will be under the budget of the person.
Choose your site and decide which type
If you go to the official Disney Fort Wilderness Campsite webpage, you can take a look at their map and decide where you want your campsite to be. Or click here for a map of the campground. Like most campgrounds you will find a variety of loops to choose from. Some loops will put you closer to the main gate and some will put you closer to the activities location on the campground. The sites that usually get booked up the fastest are those that tare closer to the transportation areas. If you are going to bring along your own car and are not going to be using Disney transportation that this will not matter to you. You will also need to decide whether you want a Premium, Preferred, or Full and Partial Hookup campsite. Obviously the Premium sites are more for those with recreational vehicles. Each different type of site will provide you with a different types of amenities. For example you may want a site that offers water and electric as well. All of this needs to be decided before you even start making your reservation. If you don’t want to sleep in a tent and don’t have a recreational vehicle than you may want to pay a bit more money for staying in one of their luxury cabins. Keep in mind that you will pay a bit more for staying in the cabins. The cabins will cost you about $275 a night. Take a look at the website to see what special amenities are providing along with the cabins. Also keep in mind that the cabins are located separately from the tent camping areas.
Waiting until the last minute to book your campsite will end up costing you top dollar. By taking the time to book well in advance you will be able to get the cheapest and best rate for your vacation. I have found it best to make a reservation at least five to six months ahead of time if possible.
Plan your meals
Take the time to plan out your meals well in advance. Since you are staying at a campground you may want to consider using the charcoal grill to make all of your meals. Nothing like a nightly cookout to really make you feel like your camping. You can actually purchase your food when you arrive in Florida to make sure that it stays fresh.
