    Is the Fort Wilderness Campgrounds under a stout? We went last March to a campsite and were unable to barbecue due to the dry conditions. We are checking in this upcoming weekend for a weeks stay and wanted to know if we could barbecue currently.

    Welcome to planDisney, Darryl, and thanks for submitting this burning question! You'll be arriving for your Walt Disney World Resort adventure today, so let's talk about the wildest campground in the wilderness. It only takes a spark!

    I chatted with a warm Cast Member who said that guests can prepare delicious camp meals at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort using the charcoal grills provided. You can also bring along an approved covered fire pit from home. So grab those burgers and buns, Darryl! My tip is to bring charcoal or wood with you since supplies can vary at the resort.

    Due to current conditions, open-flame fires are not allowed at this resort, but you can roast those marshmallows over a fire pit or even the charcoal grill. Better yet, head over for Chip 'N' Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long. I hear they're burning to help families have a great time!

    My pals and I plan to rent a golf cart when we stay at the cabins this fall. You can reserve one up to a year in advance or bring your own cart with proof of insurance. Tooling around in a golf cart is the ultimate way to travel; you'll smoke everyone!

    Darryl, I hope I've ignited the flame of your excitement, and my puns didn't burn you out! Please stop by planDisney anytime.
