    Hi I am checking in to Ft Wilderness campground on Friday Sept 22. My friend is arriving Thursday Sept 28. We are booked in FHU sites. What is the best way to help our chances to be in the same loop and hopefully our sites are close to each other.

    Howdy, Robin!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for galloping over with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. Yee-haw! Your rootin' tootin' adventure to The Most Magical Place on Earth is about to begin, Robin. I'm thrilled to hear you'll have the opportunity to camp at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and I'm here to help you prepare to connect with nature (and your friend) during your upcoming stay!

    Robin, my family loves camping throughout the state of Michigan in our RV each summer. A road trip to the Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort is on our bucket list! I'm so excited that you'll get to experience the serenity of nature and the magic of Disney Resort hotels with your friend during your upcoming stay. I understand you'd like to request that you and your friend have nearby campsites, Robin. The Full Hook-Up Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground are located at the heart of the property in loops 1600-1900 and 2100. While requests are never guaranteed, you can use the "Chat Now" function on the Walt Disney World Resort website or the "Chat With Us" feature in the My Disney Experience mobile app to have a Cast Member denote your request for nearby campsites on your reservations. Alternatively, you could call the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations phone line to place your request over the phone with a friendly Cast Member! When you arrive at the campground, I'd speak with a Cast Member at the Front Desk to confirm the request before your friend arrives. While requests aren't guaranteed, generally, Cast Members do their best to make magic happen for Guests!

    I hope you'll have the chance to experience all of the awesome recreational offerings available during your stay at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Robin. My family always enjoys watching the Electrical Water Pageant as it makes its way around Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon. You'll have a front-row seat every night from the shoreline of the campground! Also, Chip 'n' Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long takes place every evening at the campground (weather permitting). That means you and your friend will have the chance to roast marshmallows alongside everyone's favorite chipmunk duo!

    Robin, I hope you've found this information helpful as you gear up to pack the camper for an unforgettable journey to The Most Magical Place on Earth. I'm wishing you and your friend many magical moments in the great outdoors together. If you have any additional questions before or during your visit, feel free to trot on back to planDisney again anytime. We want to help you and your cowpokes to have the most wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation possible!

    Happy trails,
