    We have a reservation to stay at the Disney campground. We know we can't get to our site until 3:00, but are we able to arrive earlier and park our trailer/car in a holding area and enjoy amenities while we wait for our lot to be ready?

    Hey there Emily, and welcome to planDisney!

    Whenever I get the chance, I always want to express how much my family and I love Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, specifically The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort! It is pretty magical if you ask me. 

    If you arrive early and your site is still being prepared, overflow parking is available for you to park your trailer and car. Once you are parked, you are free to enjoy the resort or take the available bus transportation or water taxis to the theme park of your choice. If you plan to rent a golf cart, reserve it as early as possible to avoid the possibility of them being rented by others during your stay. I hope this helps. 

    Please return if you have additional questions; we would love to help. 

    Have a magical stay!
