    Do you have to be staying at Fort Wilderness to rent one of the golf carts? I'll be staying at AoA but would love to visit FW and rent a golf cart to drive around and see the campsites decorated for Halloween!

    Hello there, Sandra. Welcome to planDisney.

    Your question made me smile, Sandra. My family and I stay at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground every year during the week of Christmas. We love taking our golf cart around to look at all of the holiday decor. It's so festive and fun. I'm happy to report that Halloween is exactly the same. I love how the campsites go all out with lights and inflatables! 

    I think you'll be happy to know you do not have to be staying at The Fort to rent a golf cart to take around the campground one afternoon. You can rent one up to a year in advance by calling 407-WDW-PLAY. Golf carts can be pretty popular so if think this is something you'd like to do, I'd highly recommend calling as soon as possible. If you aren't sure of your itinerary yet, same-day rentals are available however this is based on availability. Golf carts can be picked up starting around 11:00 a.m. each day. 

    While you are visiting The Fort, I hope you'll plan to have lunch or dinner at one of my favorite spots - P & J's Southern Takeout. Their 8-piece fried chicken meal is my favorite to feed a crowd. It says it serves 2-4 people but I've fed 4 adults and a teenager and had some left over. The meal comes with fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and a loaf of cornbread. It's finger-lickin' good! I also like to grab a strawberry shortcake for the table to share and it is the perfect meal. 

    I hope you have so much fun driving around looking at the holiday decorations, Sandra. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help!

    Have fun!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
