    When do we get our campsite number for fort wilderness? We check in tomorrow and it still isn't listed in the app. Is it at check in?

    Hey there, Sam!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am imagining that as I write this, your family is heading down I-4, camping gear neatly packed in the "Way-in-back" as my family has always called it, singing the very best Disney hits. Have you made it to "How Far I'll Go" or "Try Everything" yet? These are must-haves on any Disney playlist. 

    Sam, as long as you have completed your Online Check-In through your My Disney Experience Mobile App before heading out for your Disney Vacation, you should receive a "Room Ready" Alert as soon as your campsite at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort is ready for your family of Wilderness Explorers. With that notification, you will learn the location of your home away from home. Keep in mind that the official Check-In time is 3 PM. An earlier Room-Ready notification is like bonus Disney time! 

    Once your tent is pitched and your equipment is set, you might want to hop on an internal bus to stop 600/800 to enjoy Chip'N'Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long! Roast Marshmallows, visit with your pals, and enjoy a Movie Under the Stars. While this is a weather-dependent activity, it's a great way to end a Disney Day!

    Have the very best vacation ever, Sam! Let us know how else we can help you along the way. We are here for you! 

    Adventure is out there,
