    Thank you so much for the great advice!! Plan on going horseback riding at Fort Wilderness during our next trip. Is this offered every day? If so, is there set times they run (ie, every hour, only once a day) or can you pick whatever time you would like?

    Hi Erica,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Horseback trail rides at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground are a great way to add some fun to your visit outside of the Theme Parks. The grounds are just beautiful, and you don't have to be an experienced rider to enjoy exploring the area on horseback. 

    Trail rides take place throughout the day between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 3:30 P.M., weather permitting. Reservations are recommended and can be made 30 days in advance by calling (407) 939-7529, or you can make a same day reservation by calling (407) 824-2832. The rides, which cost $46 per person, last approximately 45 minutes. Riders must be at least 9 years old and 48 inches tall and can weigh no more than 250 pounds. Please note that nothing can be carried while on horseback; small storage lockers to hold backpacks and cameras are provided at no charge. Open-toed shoes, flip flops, and strapless shoes are not permitted. Check-in is located at the entrance of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. 

    I hope this information helps! Please stop back by should you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Happy Trails,
