    Hi, I booked a trip for the Fort Wilderness Campground in November, we have 7 people and we haven't paid off the trip yet. Do we get magicbands? If we do when would we receive them? Plus is camping in November a good time?

    Hi Annie!

    November is an awesome time for a Fort Wilderness Campground vacation. It is basically a little lull between two holidays although this resort is never empty. Many times it can be the hardest reservation to get especially for the holidays.  The weather is generally starting to cool off and the rain has basically disappeared or at least the daily rain showers that you can expect during the summer months.

    If you have seven persons on your reservation each member will receive a Magic Band unless they are under three as infants and toddlers of that age do not require one. They are generally mailed out a few weeks before your arrival. You can each go to your MDE site and personalize them and choose a color. Do this soon as the closer it gets to your arrival you won't have this opportunity and you will receive the simple gray colored ones at check-in.

    Have a wonderful family vacation.....I will be there "glamping" myself in our bus for a few months this fall and I can't wait!
