Golf Cart Parking

Recommended Posts

A couple of years ago, fort mgt sent a letter to let your rv faucet slow drip to avoid frozen water lines.

Is "I always drive with my windshield down" a euphemism for something?

We are heading down this week and will be renting a cart for 2 days. This is our first cart experience despite our many visits. I know where to find the parking for the Settlement, Outpost, and Meadows Trading Post but I'm unsure about the pool and sing-a-long.

 

Can we go down the road by the tennis courts or is the only entrance on the Orange loop road?

 

Is the path of awesomeness still the access road to park at the Settlement?

 

We are checking in Thursday afternoon but getting a cart Friday and Saturday. Lady on the phone said a cart was guaranteed by 1pm but we could try sooner. Would early morning Friday be alright to go up to the front and try?

Here's a map of the pool and theater area. They have created golf cart parking lots there, and that's where you park. I've noticed some people using the parking areas in front of the Meadow Trading post for access to the pool and campfire. But, that's a slightly longer walk to the pool, and a much longer walk to the campfire.

The road by the tennis courts is the ONLY entrance and exit for golf carts. You used to be able to drive your cart across the bridge behind the Meadow Trading Post and in and out of the 1400 loop access, but those are now closed to golf carts.

 

Is the path of awesomeness still the access road to park at the Settlement?

Yes, and it is the only access. The access from the 100 loop is closed to golf cart traffic.

Friday morning would be a good time to try. They're busiest on the weekends, so there should be plenty of carts available on Friday morning.

Have a great time!

Sounds easy enough! Thanks for the purple crayon. We haven't told little man yet about the cart. He's already pumped enough for the campfire with Chip and Dale so this will just be more icing on the cake!

Good luck!

 

The only problem with that is that you're going to have to add the golf cart rental to the budget from now on.

 

I tried a few trips cartless, and never heard the end of it.

I predict October 30 will be freezing.  Our last two Halloween GGs have been miserably cold.

Oct 31 overnight last year was when the temps dropped.

 

We were sweating all day and during trick or treat.

 

But then the wind kicked up and the temp dropped late night and we started freezing.

 

The next day wasn't too bad once the sun got higher and the wind died down, then the same thing happened the next night.

 

And we didn't have our PUP, we had 2 tents set up.

I guess I'll come clean and admit that I have an actual ShamWowTM (remember those?). That I use for this purpose.

 

I'm not sure it will soak up a 2 liter bottle of soda from a shag carpet, but it works fine to get the water off wet golf cart seats.

bahahaha

 

pun intended?

 

 

I would add to the cart parking tips that you cannot leave your cart in any of the lots overnight…….correct?

I've seen it done with no consequences. We actually left ours in the lot by the Outpost when we took the ME last year for a 4 day trip.

I have never heard that you can't.

 

There aren't any signs that say you can't.

 

But, it's a very rare thing to see.  And would definitely attract attention.

Might come back and find it jacked up on cinder blocks with the wheels missing... oh wait, that's the Cross Bronx Expressway or East Side Highway.

I have seen that ...more than once!

NASCAR should recruit some of those gangs/strippers whatever they are called for their pit crews.

 

You leave a car for 5 minutes and the wheels/tires are gone, 15 minutes and it's just an empty hulk, 25 minutes and it's on fire.

I've left carts in the cart parking overnight on occasion.

 

Came back from Epcot once late once, pouring down rain, we took the bus to the camper, collected the cart in the morning.

 

Was staying off property for work over the weekend, actually had some free time. Rented a cart for the day Saturday, looped around Saturday afternoon/evening, went back to my hotel overnight, came back to the Fort, grabbed the cart, looped some Sunday morning, turned in the cart.

 

Started the day at MK, so took the boat and the cart was at locked up Settlement. Finished the day at Pl, so ended up at Outpost. Had a few adult beverages, so took the bus to my loop. Collected the cart the next day.

 

So it's not completely unusual.

Y'all don't want to hear this, but we have windows open and NO ac running, first time since last winter, so nice  :banana:  :banana:  :banana:

I love that! I really can't stand the roaring AC in a camper.  We did well this past spring and summer on going to places that didn't need AC.

It's 57 in the house right now and there's a frost warning tonight.

 

I guess it's time to shut the windows.  :rofl2:

The sound of the a/c is one of the best sounds while camping. Next best sound is a pouring down rain thunderstorm. Now combine the 2 and it is perfect.

I've heard other people say they like hearing AC too but I can't stand it. I do love to hear rain though. I've even been known to go nap in ours in the storage lot during a good rain.

I can't stand it turning off and on. I need a constant noise and it's fine. We usually have the fan runing the whole time at night because the off and on drives me crazy.
