    I'm looking to drive to Fort Wilderness and get to Pioneer Hall. Do you recommend parking at the main Fort Wilderness Resort or the "Cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort" location? Do you have any lunch or dinner recommendations?

    Howdy, Robert and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you for bringing me your question regarding Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.  It is my absolute favorite Disney Resort!  I am originally from California and would visit my grandparents in Florida every summer and stay in our family camper at Fort Wilderness, so I have lots of fond memories camping there.  I love to take my own kids either tent camping or "glamping" in one of the cabins and cannot wait for our next visit!

    Parking at Fort Wilderness is in the same lot for the entire Resort property.  If you are visiting Pioneer Hall, you will need to park your car at the front entrance by the Outpost Depot and then take an internal Fort Wilderness bus to the Settlement Depot where Pioneer Hall and the marina are.  Parking at Fort Wilderness is limited to Guests staying there or Guests who have a dining, tour or activity reservation and may be enforced by the Cast Members at the gate.  

    There are several food options at Fort Wilderness and my first recommendation is for Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, which is a dinner show.  You can dine on delicious food (cornbread and strawberry shortcake!) while enjoying the fast paced comedy show and who knows, you might get to be part of it!  If you are looking for something more casual, Trails End Restaurant is the place to go.  I haven't been since it was turned into Quick-Service Dining, but if the fried chicken is the same, it's delicious!

    There are many activities that Fort Wilderness offers as well like horseback riding, archery, horse-drawn carriage rides and even a Segway tour!  My girlfriends and I had a blast checking out the grounds on 2 wheels.  If you're staying into the evening, Chip 'n' Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long is always a great time.  You can purchase s'mores kits from the Chuckwagon Snack Bar and roast marshmallows by the fire.  This activity is located near the Meadows Trading Post.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
