    Hi there! I’m looking into camping at Disney’s fort wilderness campground. As it is about the hottest time for the year, are we allowed to swim in the pools?

    Howdy, Joan! I'm just as pleased as Pluto to welcome you to planDisney!

    I'm a big fan of Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. My family usually stays in one of the cute little cabins that dot the landscape there, but setting up camp among the pine trees sounds like so much fun, too!

    There are a ton of ways to while away a day when you're staying at "the Fort," including taking a dip in a sparkling pool. You'll actually have your choice of two pools at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground - the Meadow Swimmin' Pool and the Wilderness Swimmin' Pool. At the Meadow Swimmin' Pool, you'll find a twisty waterslide, a very cool kids' splash area, and a snack bar. For a more serene experience, you'll want to head to the Wilderness Swimmin' Pool, where you can relax and enjoy a slightly quieter swim.

    All Guests of the Fort, whether campers or "glampers," can access both pools at any time during operating hours. One quick note: Unlike pools at other Disney Resorts Collection hotels, towels are not provided at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground pools, so you'll want to bring some with you.

    I hope you decide to take the plunge and plan a stay at the Fort, Joan! Have a rootin' tootin' vacation, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
