    Love this panel.THANK YOU ALL! O.K. so I was wondering if Mickeys backyard bbq and Chip and Dale's Campfire Singalong is in the same area? Would like to catch the 6:30 dinner and then head to chip and dale. Do you Know if this is possible? (9/23-10/1-2013)

    Hi Julie! My husband and I spend a lot of time at Fort Wilderness since we bought a motor coach. We love to bring our dogs for a Disney visit and love the ambience and atmosphere of this great "hidden" resort!

    Mickey's Backyard Barbecue is located close to the marina and next to Pioneer Hall and Trails End Restaurant. To reach the Chip and Dales Campfire Singalong location you would need to take a short walk to the main pool area. If you check a map of the resort the campfire is located just across the small pond from Loop 600. The walk would take about 5-10 minutes and you would have sidewalks the entire way. Your other option is waiting for an internal bus at the location next to Pioneer Hall. My feelings is that you can walk faster then waiting on a bus and it is more enjoyable to see some of the great campsites along the way. So many guests decorate their sites and you would likely start to see some Halloween decorations popping up at many of them.

    There is quite a bit of entertainment at Mickey's Backyard Barbecue such as a roper, live band, and character dancing. You will eat first off of the yummy barbecue buffet and sit at family style tables with other guests. If you choose to leave early you are welcome to do that if you wish to get to the Campfire at a specific time. The decision will be up to you on timing. Check the latest times for the campfire when you arrive at your resort. Your concierge can do that for you.  In the fall it is often starting at 8pm which would make it very doable for you to enjoy both but this can change from month to month or even week to week.
