    I see answers about mailing tents to Fort Wilderness, but what about mailing them back home? Is that possible? And if so, is there an approximate cost to mail a tent and two sleeping bags back from Fort Wilderness? Has anyone ever done this?

    Howdy, Michele I'm so glad you traveled through the wilderness and found us here at planDisney!

    When it comes to my home away from home, there's nowhere I'd rather be than The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. My husband and I love to bring our tent and a few cozy blankets as we relax among the pine trees after a magical day in the parks! I would love to help you plan your next camping trip in The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Michele, I have also heard of Guests mailing their own personal tents to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, though I don't have experience with this myself. When reaching out to a Cast Member, they were unable to confirm the possibility of mailing a tent back home after spending time at Walt Disney World Resort. However, I think I have some good news for you! Did you know that Guests are able to reserve a tent through Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and a Cast Member will not only set it up for you, but they will also take it down at the end of your trip? It's true! This is actually something I'm going to look into for future trips, myself! The only thing sadder than leaving Walt Disney World Resort is having to take down my campsite on top of it, and this would help make that "goodbye" day sting a little less. Since these tents are subject to availability, my best piece of advice would be to call a Cast Member at Group Camping by calling 407-939-7807. They will be able to help you with your next steps and may be able to answer all of your other camping and tent-related questions, too.

    Since campsites can often book up very far in advance, I would recommend booking your campsite at your earliest convenience! Also, make sure that you make your theme park reservations using the Disney Park Pass system so you can be sure to visit your desired parks during your trip. And take a little time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app before you arrive! This will allow you to check wait times for attractions, view park maps, and even mobile order food. I love placing a mobile order at P & J's Southern Takeout on my way back from the parks so I know my meal will be ready and waiting for me by the time I get back.

    If you have any other questions, please visit us again. After all, you've got a friend in me!

    Ride like the wind, Bullseye!
