    New Campsite Categories at the Fort

    I'm just glad they see the potential in the RV market. I also hope that this will mean that the Fort is here to stay for another 47 years.

    Sometime's when it's time to turn the page to another chapter in life, we resist mightily. We are supposed to move on to a new, exciting phase in our lives, but we can't get there if we hang on to the past. Perhaps your last RV purchase was that....it was time to move to the next chapter but you weren't ready and you were hanging on to what was. I know I tend to do that. But now it's time to jump with both feet and find out what is in store for your family. I bet it'll be every bit as fun and fulfilling as those camping trips to the Fort....just different. I hope you stick around here to let us know what you are up to, and how your family is doing.

    Here's a new one. From a reliable source. There have been meetings, including an onsite tour, in which the topic of discussion has been scrapping the current campsite level designations and creating new, simpler, ones. One idea is to charge more for campsites close to the Meadow Recreation area. Thats interesting, but there's more. Included in the discussion is the concept of creating a new separate, restricted access area of super premium sites. This area would be gated off from the Fort, and will have its own amenities reserved for the campsites there. Where would this go? Say goodby to the group camping area and the surrounding area. The 3000 loop is actually being discussed by folks who can make it happen. TCD

    Bobby invited me to take part in these discussions as supervisor of the 3000 loop but the talks ended when some snobs wanted to close Dave’s massage parlor .

    If/when Disney prices us out we will be at some other campground having a good time sitting around a fire. We enjoy camping wherever it is....from Disney to boondocking at a dirtbike race. We're campers.

    Just echoing what was said above... stick around! We're in the same boat as you (and many others): prices have pushed us out. Ugh, that's tough to say but it's where we're at. Now we try to camp locally and just eat on property. Even without your camper, your comments are welcomed and wanted! We Fiends have to stick together!!

    ONCE A FIEND! ALWAYS A FIEND! You can’t get rid of us that easy! like Dave said you don’t have to camp at the fort to be a fiend. We all share a love of the fort, Disney’s, and the friends we’ve met there and here on this forum. Please keep posting. You’ve got years of experience and wisdom to share.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it reopens with a sponsorship. Pluto's Bark Park, brought to you by Pedigree.

    I agree with you guys. I have always been a camper and there is no better vacation. I understand there are other places to camp than just the fort, and yes, all are getting pricey. Our other issue was time. There was a time we could get 6-7 camping trips in a year. The past few, we were lucky to get one. Not only was the fort pricing is out, but it was a waste to have the RV at storage 51 weeks a year

    Instead of charging more for the sites closer to the Meadows, they should just charge less for those sites further away....lol. I also agree with PGHFiend. Any type of new investment in FW, even if it is for the high brow elites and us low life rednecks will never set foot in it, is a good thing. Maybe they will invest in some new common amenities too. But this raises the question of how high are rates headed in the short term. Is $250 a night coming in the new few years? I hope not.

    I figure that the CM lot is now the construction lot. Or it's in the footprint of the new resort. TCD

    I took a self-guided tour of the area yesterday. It turns out this parking lot is for Pioneer Hall cast members: Right after I took that photo, I was harassed by a security cast member who told be I was trespassing. I had to restrain myself from laughing in his face. But, they had two uniformed security guards keeping an eye on things back here. So be careful. TCD

    For sure. We just have a hard time sneaking off without them. They love it as much as we do.

    We are going to be in our current location for two more years until the teenager graduates high school. After that, depending on where he wants to continue his education, we will be relocating. I am hoping it will be back to Florida all year long where I belong instead of just several months per year. If that happens, we will most certainly be planning more GG's in Florida. This way we can all have a less expensive option and those of us living close can continue the day trip process. One of the schools my son is looking at is UCF. I would love for him to go there, lol.

    Dave- I just saw your post, and I'm sad to hear your news. I totally understand. Sadly, things have changed, and the good old days are not coming back. I'm sad for your kids. I thought for sure that there would be a new Herbie for them to drive around the Fort when they got to be teens. I'm still hanging in there, and still plan to camp from time to time. But it will never be like it was. TCD

    New Monorail Line Hotel?

    Disney needs nice affordable resorts for the average family not $1,000.00 a night rooms. When ever I look at booking a trip all that is left is rooms $400 per night and up. Or expand the campground more.

    This is hard to hear... that green space is such a pretty area. We loved to walk over that way and visit the barn and ponies. Always so peaceful.

    I also hope that they are (very) careful to preserve the Fort. I do have my doubts though, hopefully I'm wrong.

    I hope so also. But in the end the bean counters will always win. If they can cut down a 1000 trees and increase their bottom line $100 they will do it.

    Disney Springs Bus Tip

    The Fort Wilderness Bus Stop at Disney Springs is ALLLLLLLLLLLL the way around the back. As Yvonne and I were limping towards the bus stops, I saw the Wilderness Lodge/Contemporary bus stop really close. We hopped on there, got off at Wilderness Lodge, and then hopped on the Fort bus. Really nice if you are along the "Yellow" line as you can stay on at Settlement. It's also helpful if you started your day with your cart or bicycles parked at the Marina and did some park hopping or hopped to Disney Springs

    From a FB page Tuesday night about 9 or 10 Good News! Disney just caught Abby the lost dog. Used a cage trap chicken& ribs. She was very calm in the cage. They had her a few minutes ago in 1800 by the greenway. She is finally going home. Please spread the word...😀 Has been loose since Thanksgiving

    My sources tell me it will be 101 Dalmations themed, covered for bad weather, and includes a meet and greet (photopass optional). $5 per turd or $99 with a desert party option.
