    My kids and grandkids have a site in Ft. Wilderness for an upcoming trip. Is it possible for me to get on a Waitlist for a campsite for 12/26 to 12/29?

    Hi Stuart and welcome to planDisney!

    Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is my favorite Resort at Walt Disney World!  I love the tranquility of the property and knowing that I'm so close to the magic.  I have been camping there since I was a little girl and I love to take my family for camping trips under the stars.  

    Fort Wilderness has become quite a popular Resort these days, so it's increasingly difficult to get reservations, especially during the holiday season.  It's my favorite time of year to visit Fort Wilderness because of all the beautiful holiday decorations that the campers set up at their campsites.  There are no waitlists for Disney Resorts, but I suggest that you keep checking for availability and, if possible, play around with your dates.  Try adding a day before and/or a day after to see if availability opens up.  I have found that I have better luck finding 5 nights rather than 2 or 3, so if you have flexibility with your dates, definitely give that a go.  Guests are constantly changing their plans, so sometimes you have to be a little a patient and diligent with searching for availability.

    If you are unable to secure your own campsite, you are more than welcome to visit your family at Fort Wilderness to join in on some of the fun.  Chip 'n' Dales' Campfire Sing-A-Long is such a fun activity and happens each night.  Bring your own s'mores or purchase a kit at the Chuckwagon Snack Bar and roast marshmallows by the fire pit while listening to some of your favorite songs.

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

    Have a magical day!
