    hi again Kay. still thinking of doing FW with our trailer for our first WDW trip.!! do you know the price of: charcoal for grill, showers, cart rentals, Cn'D singalong smores. And is the movie, water parade and pools free? and other costs to camp?

    Hey Lisa! So great to hear from you again! I have hunted down some prices for you when it comes to the fun at Fort Wilderness. The good news is that so much is free and just part of the perks of a Disney resort.

    The biggest expense will be a cart rental which runs about $65 a day with tax. Although it is an added piece to a vacation budget it is such a fun part of Fort Wilderness being able to cruise through the loops to look at decorations or meeting new people.

    The showers in the comfort stations are unbelievably clean and they are free for use by the resort guests. There are also washer and dryer facilities in each comfort station as well as toilets and sinks and ice machines. They are located generously so your walk is never far to reach one. The movies, water parades, and pools are also free for resort guests. There are additional rentals at the Bike Barn for bike rentals which are about $15 a day or kayak and canoe rentals for about $6.50 for 30 minutes. Fishing equipment can be rented as well. Tours such as Segway and archery are also available at added cost. The marina also has Sea Raycer and pontoon boat rentals and you can hire a fishing guide for a trip out on the lakes.

    Chip and Dale's Campfire Singalong is free and you are welcome to bring your own s'mores ingredients. If you wish to purchase a kit at the campfire it is about $9.00 and includes sticks, graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. Drinks, candy, popcorn, ice cream, cookies, hotdogs, and nachos are available to purchase there if you don't want to bring your own. There are two outpost stores where you can buy staple food items including charcoal but I was not able to get a price for that. Grills and picnic tables are at each site as well as the hook ups for water, electricity and cable TV. Your internal bus transportation is also complimentary. There are many play areas with slides and swings and basketball goals and volleyball nets to keep most children happy at not cost!
