    We are staying at the Wilderness Campsites during January. Are there lamp posts to hang a flag on outside of each site? And are there ways to travel the campsite? It is so large! I know there are buses but I am asking about within the campground.


    You will fall in love with Fort Wilderness. From its clean Comfort Stations to the flat, expansive campsites, the resort is a notch above any other RV resort.

    Unfortunately, there are no lamp posts from which to hang a flag. The light poles come to your knee. Many campers, including the ones in this photo tend to bring their own. In fact, a trip to the fort isn't the same without the Mickey Lamp Post my husband made with directions he found on the internet. We purchased an outdoor lamp kit online from a home improvement store along with a 12-inch polythylene globe and two 8-inch polythylene globes for ears. (The 6-inch globes that many recommend make the finished globe look like Winnie-the-Pooh.) He used a hole saw to create the holes for the ears and then attached them with silicone caulking. We use a Christmas tree stand to hold the lamp kit, run an extension cord up through the middle and attach the globe on top, removing it for transport. 

    As for getting around the campground, I recommend either bringing your own bikes or golf cart. You can park your golf cart trailer at the overflow lot for the resort or you should find plenty of space at your campsite. If you don't own either of these, you can rent bikes at the Bike Barn by the hour or the day. You can rent a golf cart also for the day. In January, you shouldn't need to make a reservation ahead of time but if you want, simply call 407-824-2742. Another fun, economical way to get around the resort is to take a Wagon Ride. It's first-come, first-served nightly in front of Pioneer Hall.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
