    My family with a 5 and 3 yr old are taking our first trip to Fort Wilderness in a few weeks. Any suggestions on MUST do things while we are there. I have heard the campfire is a great time. Can you take your own smore materials to it? Thank you in advance.

    Hi, Lindy! Fort Wilderness is a vacation in and of itself! There is so much to do including wagon rides, a petting zoo, pony and horseback riding, great dining and entertainment as well as the famous Chip n' Dale Campfire Sing-A-Long and outdoor movie. Our family has been several times to the campfire, and we've bought our s'mores supplies at the Chuck Wagon Snack Bar. Yet, to save a little money, we brought our supplies the last time we visited -- plus, we had plenty to share which opened doors to meeting new friends!

    As far as the must do's at Fort Wilderness, my kids insist on the campfire and wagon rides. We especially like to time our wagon ride so that we can watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the beach area. We also like to rent a golf cart to scoot around the expansive resort quickly and easily. We enjoy the Hoop Dee Doo Revue, and this October, we have reservations at Mickey's Backyard BBQ -- which I've heard is fantastic!

    The best thing about Fort Wilderness is the laid-back pace you experience after being at the parks. We love to spend time at our cabin preparing a meal and sharing some no-pressure family time. I hope you enjoy your Fort experience, too! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
