  1. What in the world is going on? I know the Fort is busy around December. But we have always managed to get a site or a cabin. Now nothing. The Florida residence rates just came out today. Nothing. Does anyone know are there some loops blocked off? Sometimes that will have impact to reservations.
  2. Ok I am late to the golf cart party. We have been taking our golf cart to the Fort for over 20 years. Our golf cart is only used at the fort. But I understand the Fort wanting to have the same rules across the board. But first they need to start in forcing the rules on their own carts. Can you say how many people can you fit on a golf cart? Anyone know the cost to have insurance on a golf cart part time.
  3. Thank you. That is what I thought. My hopes is maybe like the other DVC at the River country site, it will be scrapped. There is nothing wrong with these cabins except for cosmetics.
  4. Happy New Years fellow Fort Fiends. We are right now spending our last night in a Fort Wilderness cabin. We usually bring our 5th wheel and camp on a site for 10 days. But my son came down from Virginia so it’s been a short but sweet visit. Now for my rant. I am so mad as I look around at the beautiful surroundings of the 100s of cabins. And I ask why? With all the DVCs around and the ones that are proposed, do they need to take these away from the ordinary family that needs the room to have a comfortable stay. Why can’t they replace some to be DVC and leave some the way they anre for non DVC
  5. Thanks Jen. There used to be so many post daily, I couldn’t read them all? Started wondering if people weren’t posting anymore. Even though I like FaceBook I rather have blog site any day. I am hoping like you more people come back. Not sure what happened, but when I click on browsing the forums, there are posts from way back, few years ago. Is this correct? Or is there something wrong in settings? Thank you again Jen
  6. Oh they better bring the tables and rocking chairs back. Or there will be many unhappy campers.
  7. I guess Trails End has closed. We are here now and the site says it’s closed. No one in the dining hall. Thank goodness Pand J is opened.
  8. I remember as a teenager camping at the Fort in the early 70’s. At night they turned the buffet stations into build your own personal pizza. It was so cool. You would go through and build your little pizza pay for it then find a seat and wait for it to cook. There was bear heads hanging on the wall and other decor around. That was over 50 years ago and those are the best memories. Along with the open trams that would go around the loops to drop you off at your site. We would ride them just to avoid the mosquitoes. Ahh the memories. Miss them.
  9. Hey guys. Doing a 7 day cruise then 2 weeks at the Fort. See everyone on 3.4. But my question what is the boat loop? Is that the personal boats? I have been coming to the Fort since they opened and I have never heard boot loop before. Guess I have been out of the “loop”. Lol
  10. I saw the renderings. It looks so out of place. So disappointed that they closed the luau. It was our anniversary tradition.
  11. Thank you for the info. Even though it is a eyesore, I am so happy that the new DVC isn’t going in. The only good thing come out of the pandemic.
  12. We are here at the Ft for our annual anniversary trip. Between the crowds and the rain, we are going into the parks less than usual. I have two questions. First what is going on at the bus depot by pioneer hall. Seems like they are putting a lot of work and the fence what’s it hiding? Now what happened to all the rules of the Ft. I guess since you can do online check in, people don’t get the rules. I have never seen so many scooters electric razors not to mention motorcycles? Please tell me this is a faze
  13. We are here now at the Ft. Been here since 3/7. We were at Coronado Springs 3/2-3/7. My granddaughter was chosen for Disney Dreamer Academy. It has been ridiculously crowed these past 2 weeks. Even cast members have said they haven’t seen it like this ever. What is going on? And I just saw that graffiti is being engraved initials on Star Wars walls.
