    Hello, I paid the first night deposit for the campsites, but if I were to change to a room at an actual resort, would I need to pay another deposit?

    Howdy Nicole and welcome back to planDisney!

    Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is my FAVORITE Disney Resort!  I have been camping there since I was a little girl and love taking my own kids camping to make new memories.  Thank goodness I married an outdoorsy guy!  One of my favorite things about Fort Wilderness is the tranquility of the property, but also knowing I'm just a boat ride away from Magic Kingdom Park.  Spending the evenings burying my toes in the sand at the marina and watching the Electrical Water Pageant brings me so much peace during a busy Walt Disney World vacation packed with park days.

    If you are interested in changing Disney Resorts, no problem!  If the price per night is more than what you have booked for Fort Wilderness, you just pay the difference for one night for the deposit.  If it is less, additional deposit funds are not needed and your original deposit will go towards your new room total. 

    There is an option to modify your vacation online by logging in to your My Disney Experience account and viewing your upcoming plans.  This option hasn't always worked for me, so I prefer giving a friendly Cast Member a call to inquire about changing my Resort hotel.  

    I hope everyone gets to experience a Disney vacation at Fort Wilderness at some point.  There are so many unique things to do like Chip 'n' Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long where you can actually meet with these two troublemaker chipmunks while roasting marshmallows at the fire pits.  My favorite activity is renting a golf cart to ride around the campground.  It's the easiest mode of transportation and the most fun!  We love roaming around after the sun goes down to check out all of the campsites that are decorated with lights and inflatables.  

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

    Have a magical day!
