    We’re Done

    I'm lucky that my company offers generous vacation time. I typically have 5 to 6 weeks a year available. Also I have to work every 4th weekend. That gives me 2 days off the following week. So I can take 3 days and be off for 5. I try to always schedule a work weekend before vacation to cut down on time. Now that my wife is working again we are constrained by her time off. For example the kids and I check in on Saturday, but she is flying down Tuesday night. I also own a fabrication business. It takes up nearly all of my free time, but I have my father working with me so he looks after things when I am gone. We also like to do short trips at times too. We've done 2 long weekend trips so far this year. On the $ side we are fortunate to have some disposable income, and I don't mind spending it on memories while my kids are young. We buy AP's to help on park fees, but honestly we probably spend more as a result of AP's lol.

    River Country

    I remember the characters waterskiing too. We used to take the bike path past is what is now WL to look at the topiaries. We visited FW regularly until about 1987, then family troubles put an end to it. I went back in 1994 (wilderness lodge) and to FW in 1998 with my GF (now wife), and we been about every year since then.

    I'm 43. I think my first trip was 1979. I do remember riding the train.

    The swimming area was pretty small. There was a rectangular area that was roped off with ropes through floating bouy things.

    I swam many times down there at the beach. I would swim out to the ropes and back. Good times.

    Us fiends need to buy a track of land somewhere and build it to be like the Fort of the 80's. We can have teepees, stump trash cans, muskets, peacocks, swamp trails, marshmallow marsh, etc

    Good Bye Pop UP?

    Whatever you get make sure your tow rig and hitch set up is on point. Even a small TT can be a handful with an undersized tow rig and/or improperly set up hitch.

    New Campsite Categories at the Fort

    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.
  10. This makes our Thanksgiving trip seem a bit more exciting....now if we can just get in to ride something.

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

    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.

    Dang good TR. You're husband is a trooper for driving 20 hrs straight. I love to drive, but 10 to 12 is enough for me.
  14. I've basically given up on making reservations for quick upcoming trips. I never have any luck. I use an agent and nearly always get what I want.
