    Do I have to bring my own tent to camp at the fort wilderness campground ?

    Hi there, Tanis! We appreciate you taking the time to stop by and asking such a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort are among some of my favorites to stay at in the world! The magic of this resort combines the rustic feeling of camping in the great outdoors with the luxurious amenities Walt Disney World Resort is known for. This Disney Resort hotel boasts 750 acres of pine and cypress trees that are home to a variety of wildlife. You and your family may be lucky enough to see such critters as ducks, deer, rabbits, and armadillos during your stay!

    Guests staying at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort are always allowed to bring their own camping gear if they would like but it is not required! You may actually rent a tent and cots for the duration of your stay if you would like to avoid dragging along your own gear. My family and I have done this on multiple occasions and have loved the convenience of renting gear! It's so nice to have our tent already set up and ready to go for our stay upon arrival as well. 

    I hope you and your family have a magical time visiting Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
