Disney family making smores by a campfire

    Hi! Are there family restrooms at the Fort? We are looking to tent camp in 1500 or 2000 loop and are wondering if there are "family" facilities, where a young child may be with their parent? And how's the weather in February tent camping?

    Howdy, Emily! Welcome to planDisney.

    One of my fellow panelists recently stayed at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, and I loved seeing all the photos of her family exploring the resort and taking in the beautiful natural setting. They even went kayaking, which I now have on my Disney bucket list! I'm so excited to hear you're planning a visit.

    I called and spoke with a Cast Member, who told me that there are not "family" Comfort Stations in the Campsites. Instead, you will find men's and women's restrooms, equipped with shower stalls that close and lock, toilets, and sinks. There is also a baby changing area in each Comfort Station.  You will be welcome to bring small children with you to the facilities, as there is privacy in the showers and room for you to enter a shower stall with them. There are also laundry facilities at the Comfort Stations. 

    As for the weather, I LOVE February at Walt Disney World. It cools down at night and in the mornings (you will likely need sweatpants and sweatshirts for the campsites) and is lovely and warm in the daytime. I would recommend watching the weather a week or two out from your trip and planning accordingly, but definitely pack layers. I visited one December where it was shorts and t-shirts weather the whole time, and then at the same time next year where we needed lightweight winter coats some days. I would pack some extra blankets for your little one, and maybe even a light pair of gloves or a hat for night and morning trips to the restroom or outdoor coffee time (my favorite part of camping). Also, pools are heated year-round at Disney Resorts Collection hotels, but you might want to invest in a long-sleeved rash guard or a suit with more coverage. This Canadian has no trouble swimming in winter at Disney, and we often get the pools to ourselves!

    Be sure to make a stop at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch during your stay Emily. My family loved seeing the Disney horses at the stables, and your little one might enjoy a pony ride! My daughter and husband enjoyed a horseback riding excursion there that is one of their favorite Disney memories. It's also worth a stop at P & J's Southern Takeout - people rave about their BBQ, but I'm in it for the Strawberry Shortcake, which is heavenly.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! We're all ears if you have any further questions as you plan your family's visit to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
