    I will need to call a year in advance for reserving a golf cart at FW Campground on 12/1/17 for 12/1/18. Can you give me info on what time the phone lines open on that day, a number to call and anything else I might need to know!? Thanks!

    Hi Judy!

    Although anyone staying at the Fort Wilderness Resort will have an awesome Walt Disney World vacation those who can add on a golf cart rental to their budget will really be able to appreciate the entire property during their stay. It is not a necessity but it certainly is a big fun perk!

    The Fort has been adding Golf Carts over the past few years and they do have quite a few to rent each day. Unless it is a holiday it is fairly easy to rent one a few months ahead of time. But to make sure it is always best to do this as soon as you can which is one year in advance. The number you would need to call is 407-824-2742. Most Disney phone lines will open at 7am eastern time.

    You can pick up your reserved golf cart at 1pm on the day you arrive and it needs to be returned by 11am on the day you depart. You will need to sign all the paper work inside the front check-in building and will then be escorted to the golf cart rental area.

    The most important thing to remember when renting a golf cart is that it is a vehicle. Only licensed drivers can operate them and no children can be on the laps of those driving. Observe the rules of the road and never go off roading or on the side walks. Golf carts are not allowed to be taken off the property and that includes driven to the Wilderness Lodge. There is parking available both at the bus depot and at the marina.

    Many guests bring decorations to adorn their carts during their stay. Not only is this festive but it also helps them to identify their cart when parking it with so many others.

    Make sure you take time and travel through the loops one evening. Starting in December you will find many guests have decorated their sites for the holiday. Have fun!
