    Hi Moms - 21 days until our visit & we're over the moon excited! Quick ? - Is the haunted carriage ride at Fort Wilderness appropriate for a 5 year old? I made reservations, but now am concerned that it may be too scary. Thanks for all the great adv


    Although I have not been on the Haunted Carriage ride, I have heard from folks who have been that the decorations are no more scary than those at the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom.  The anticipation of something scary drives the thrill of the ride more than anything.

    I have a 4 1/2-year-old and totally understand your need to check things out.  If you'd like to see pictures and get a good synopsis of the ride, visit and click on the camping thread.  From there, look for a topic called "Opinions on the Haunted Carriage Ride" posted around 9/08.  In it, you'll find a link to a report on the ride with pictures from last year and a play-by-play so you can make a more education decision for your family.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
