    We are planning a trip this year and are going to stay in campground. What area is the best area to stay? Which loop? We have a fifth wheel camper and will have 7 people coming. Thank you for your time.

    Hi Darlene! I love welcoming new Fort Wilderness campers since it is my favorite place to stay while at Walt Disney World. We have a motor coach and love to come for a few months at a time and bring our four legged family members too.

    It is very difficult to tell someone which loop to stay in as they all have pros and cons. The first thing to decide is if you wish to stay in a Premium, Preferred, or Standard site. We opt for the Premium as those will have the largest concrete pads with strong picnic tables and good locations. Many guests enjoy staying on the outskirts of the resort and like the Standard sites. These will have some sand at the end of each pad so there is also room for tents to set up. The favorite loops for this category are the 1600, 1700, 1800, and 1900. They are not far from the pool area so a short walk will get you to that location.

    If you have a large fifth wheel you will probably not enjoy the Preferred sites as much since those are some of the original loops built. They are harder to maneuver and the pads are small. The good thing is that they are very close to the marina and Trails End/Pioneer Hall location.

    When you look at the Premium loops think if you would like open space or pine trees and privacy. Many guests enjoy the 700, 800, and 900 loops as they back up to some pine forest area. My husband likes the 600 as he doesn't want trees so he can get his satellite coverage. There isn't a bad loop there and all have close access to bus stops. The 800 loop is one of the longest loops while loop 1000 is the shortest and directly across from the Trading Post.

    As you can see it is a tough decision and often you don't even have a choice since Fort Wilderness stays crowded every week of the year. Look up a map of the resort on line to see the loops and then request it on your reservation. They will do the best they can!
