    We are taking our granddaughter (turning 5 in Sept.) to WDW 8/23/09. We would like to take her to Chip and Dales S'more's Campfire. Can you please give info on this, what time to be there and the best way to get there. We are staying at POP. TX.


    Chip and Dale's Campfire Sing-a-Long is a must on every trip to WDW for our family.  I'm tickled to hear you'll be taking your granddaughter!

    The campfire is located at Fort Wilderness, Disney's campground.  In the summer, the fire pots are lit around 7:30 p.m. with the sing-a-long starting at 8 p.m.  Chip 'n' Dale do a great job of working the crowd during the 20-minute-or-so sing-a-long led by none other than a singing cowboy (or singing cowgirl...)  If you forget to bring your own s'more fixin's, there is a chuck wagon at the back of the ampitheatre that sells kits, and are very affordable around $2 to $3, if memory serves me correctly.  After the sing-a-long, the crowd thins out, but plenty stay for the Disney outdoor movie. 

    I wish I could say that getting there was easy, but if you don't come to Disney by car, your best bet is to take a bus from Pop Century to the Magic Kingdom and from there, hop on the boat launch to Fort Wilderness.  Once you arrive at the pier at Fort Wilderness, walk about 50 yards toward Pioneer Hall (beyond the beach) and catch a bus to the Meadows Trading Post.  (Tell the driver you want to go to the sing-a-long.)  The ampitheatre will be behind the trading post to the left a ways, about 50 yards from the pool.

    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
