  1. We have friends hoping to join us at the fort this fall. Where is the best place to rent a camper for them? Also, anybody have recommendations for renting a golf cart? Has anyone had a great experience or a terrible experience renting either to share?
  2. We just combined 2 sites at the fort into one and canceled the ones we no longer needed. If anyone is looking for a tent or premium reservation between Nov. 7-22, check out the site. Our canceled reservations should be showing up soon!
  3. Ok.so I know you guys probably get tired of loop/site advice BUT I have another one for you! We will be camping at the fort for 2 weeks in November. We have reserved a premium site but will have a family of 5 in a small to medium travel trailer so a loop with a comfort station is a must. Our next priority is nature. We are a family of nature LOVERS! We really want a site as wooded as possible and would LOVE to be on the canal. So far, we have not had many problems backing the camper into MOST spots so hopefully that will not be an issue. As I researched fortfriends for HOURS yesterday, watched all the videos, checked out the app and read as many comments and reviews as possible, I quickly realized that most of the sites close to the activities didn't seem to be as 'natural' as some of the sites that are further out. If it were just me, the hubby, and our adventurous 8 year old, this would not be a problem for us and our bikes but we are lucky enough to have grandparents joining us on this trip and I hate the thought of them having hike all over. We do plan to rent a golf cart for a few of our days to explore and enjoy the fort but can't afford to rent one the whole 2 weeks. We are looking at: 1400 loop but could not tell how the canal looked and most sites did not look very wooded. Are there any nice wooded sites along the canal on the outer loop? 1300 loop but wondered if it might be too far to the boat launch to MK for the grandparents. 500, 800, and 900 but wondered if anyone has had any problems with pet noise on these loops Any way to have our cake and eat it to? Can you think of any very wooded premium sites along the canal that is in a loop with a comfort station and still not TOO far of a walk for the grandparents to trek over to the pool and to the boats for MK? What are your favorite loops/sites? Sorry for the long post
  4. Does anyone have any tips or secrets on how to get a last minute reservation at the Fort? We currently have a small pop up and made our reservation on the tent/pop up loops over a year ago BUT my parents just bought a camper and would like to join us. It would make the trip SO much more special for ALL of us! All full hook ups seemed to be booked. I have checked online AND called with no luck so far. We will be there from 11/7 - 11/22..any advise would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks guys!
  5. Hi Everyone! I have a question and hope that someone has some experience with the issue and could help me out. I have read that some of the fort wilderness sites can have a camper and tent combo as long as there are less than 10 people at a site and there is a charge of $2 per adult after the first 2. My in-laws have a small pull behind camper and we have a TINY pop up camper (Coleman Taos). We most likely would not even need to plug the pop up in...will do most down time in the camper and only need the pop up for sleeping. Wondered if we could put the two together on the same site? Does Disney consider a pop up as a TENT trailer or as a pop up CAMPER? Has anyone camped with both at the site? Does anyone know the official policy? Thanks so much for your time!
