    I'm sure Disney could pave over the entire campground and open a KOA style campground in another location on property and there would be a lot of folks perfectly fine with that. I feel sorry for those who missed the Fort in its glory days and think what they're doing is fine. It's not TCD

    Smaller Camper Recommendations?

    As the story goes, Bob started painting the sign at the Tennessee T campground a couple of years ago....T.....E..... and he started getting tired and realized that Tennessee has WAY too many letters. So he said to heck with it, painted XAS and the rest is history.

    That’s amazing! A cat cat went missing from the town next to me, they found it 12 miles away from home and it had to cross 2 busy highways to get there! Thankfully it was chipped so they were able to reunite jt

    Good news! The Siamese cat apparently returned this morning without encountering Mr. Bobcat.

    U.S. Navy Blue Angels to Fly Over Spaceship Earth at Epcot on May 2 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks Guests visiting Epcot on May 2 will have the rare opportunity to see some of the world’s best pilots in action during their Walt Disney World Resort vacation when the U.S. Navy Blue Angels fly over the park’s iconic Spaceship Earth attraction. In honor of Military Appreciation Month, The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are scheduled to make two flight passes over Epcot on the morning of Thursday, May 2 before continuing their flight to the Fort Lauderdale Air Show in Florida. If you’re planning to be at Epcot for the flyovers, a great viewing area will be between Spaceship Earth and the entrance to World Showcase. In 2015 and 2017, the Blue Angels performed similar flyovers to the cheers of thousands of guests at Magic Kingdom Park. At speeds of more than 250 mph, the Blue Angels performed a perfect “Delta Break” maneuver right above Cinderella Castle. Be sure to check the Disney Parks Blog on May 2 for coverage of the Blue Angel flyover at Epcot.

    It will be with a Donkey/Mule and the CM's will know it as the Jackass Sessions. Disney fanatics are fleeced for every last $$ so they have bragging rights that they did everything at the resort.

    Currently visiting the Fort today (breakfast at TE). Spoke with Mark (management) in the barn....the new barn is going in behind the 700 loop. They are scheduled to be over there, by September. Pony rides are currently up front, but will come back down once the new barn is in place however...the pony paddocks are not being rebuilt. The ponies will have room, in the new barn. The new barn will be slightly larger to accommodate the ponies and each draft will have his own run out. Mark also said that he’s been told that a new bike/jogging path between the Fort and the Lodge is supposed to be put in. Currently two babies at the Fort (mamas are Cinderella ponies). One was born 8 weeks ago and the other 3 weeks ago. Older one is all white so she will be a Cinderella pony herself someday; the other had some champagne on her...so no castle days in her future.

    Salisbury has changed a lot, especially the college. I worked for the theatre through the 80's and most of the 90's - it was a great job for a single gal, but not for raising a family.

    Some adorableness for your Thursday. We were there a few years ago shortly after another baby was born and it was so fun watching her run, play and drive the adults bonkers. https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2019/05/theres-a-new-baby-gorilla-at-disneys-animal-kingdom/

    Yet another private viewing area for Happily Ever After. They keep squeezing out the poor slobs who "only" purchased a park admission ticket, setting aside multiple prime viewing areas for those paying extra charges for the various dessert parties, dinner parties, etc. Making matters worse is the choice they made when crafting HEA to replace Wishes to include all of the projections, making the real estate in front of the castle even more desirable. That decision has led to the escalation in property values we are seeing in front of the castle....people are willing to pay more and more just to secure their spot, when in years past you could get the same essential show from multiple locations throughout the park for Wishes. This is like a corrupt City Councilman voting to place a subway station right next to the apartment building he owns, thereby driving up values and rents. Disney changed the show, molding people's viewing habits and creating increasing competition for a select few viewing areas, then cashes in by selling access to those areas. The Mouse is a greedy SOB.

    Dave is a funny boy, I don't really know how to spell Texas let alone Tennessee. But the real story is that the original Owners made their money in oil (Texas T) so when they built this place that was the name they gave it. The second owners never changed it (they were from Ohio) and when the current owners (James and Pat) bought it they were from Texas (Houston) and when they were closing on it the lawyer asked what they wanted to change the name to and James said there was no reason to change it.

    If you think the campground has been treated like the red headed stepchild of Disney World before you ain’t seen nothin yet.

    Hmm...I did not see the fences around the playgrounds yet. Makes me want to buy rolls of paper, let kids in the campground create "artwork" and then cover the fences. I would have to stop myself from adding, "Please pardon our mess while we think we are improving your guest experience." though.

    We feel the same. We were going once a year but the pricing is crazy. We love Disney but they are driving us out. So last year we took a 4.5wk cross country trip with the camper and found that entire trip was cheaper than our 10 nights going to Disney. Not to mention we found it much more rewarding.

    Disney Beats Universal Again!

    It's only April and Universal Orlando is already announcing dates for holiday events Posted By Seth Kubersky on Mon, Apr 22, 2019 at 2:59 pm Hogwarts Castle will celebrate 'The Magic of Christmas' again at Universal Orlando starting Nov. 16. Those of us who carp about Christmas coming earlier and earlier every year might as well go hide under the carpet, because Universal Orlando has decided to celebrate Earth Day by announcing the dates for its 2019 Holiday celebrations, including Grinchmas, the Holiday Parade featuring Macy's, and Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This year, the holiday season at Universal Orlando will run all the way from Nov. 16, 2019, through Jan. 5, 2020. Special entertainment confirmed to be returning to the resort includes "The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle" light show in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, and the "Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular" musical, both in Islands of Adventure. At Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy's again include the Minions, and Mannheim Steamroller is coming back for live concerts on select nights. Seasonal food, including hot Butterbeer, will also be back in both parks. All of Universal's holiday celebrations are included in standard park admission. There will also be activities for guests staying at Universal's hotels, and the annual EVE celebration at Universal CityWalk on Dec. 31.

    We all should probably be thankful for Halloween. Or we would be celebrating Christmas in September

    Thanks for the updates TCD. I appreciate you and other Fiends on the Scene™ keeping us in the loop even though being in the loop on this makes me mostly sad.

    While I check out the Fort Wilderness facebook pages, I can't bring myself to participate. All they seem to concentrate on is how to game the system, and also the latest fad they "must do". That is what makes this site the best for Fort Wilderness.

    New Loop maps with numbers and sizes

    I know there are a few ways to figure out what loop you want etc... but the three loops we stay in usually are 600, 1200, 1300. I wanted an overlay with the site number and sizes. I borrowed the map from Touringplans and used the Fort Fiends app for the site sizes. I thought if everything was on one page it might make it easier. At this point I would have to wait for a future trip to layout more loops, if anyone would have an interest in a similar map for the loops. Please let me know what you think, feedback is always great. Fort Wilderness 600 Loop Map.pdf Fort Wilderness 1200 Loop Map.pdf Fort Wilderness 1300 Loop Map.pdf
