    never used tv camping-need cable box at check in? How long wire connection do we need for outside-also hose for water & sewer length? IN past, tent sites-this time Full Hook up. Septic & water in rear of RV. (driver side) charcoal grill @ site?

    Howdy Denise! Thanks for moseying on by planDisney as you prepare to vacation in pioneer paradise. I'd be happy to help with your questions. You've got a friend in me!

    Let's lasso in these inquiries one at a time. First, the charcoal grill; that's a quick one! Every campsite at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort features a charcoal grill and picnic table. So fire up the coals, and settle in for some frontier fare! If you forget any bare necessities, head over to the Settlement Trading Post or the Meadow Trading Post.

    Now, for the details of vacationing in your RV. All of the Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort are designed to accommodate standard RVs or travel trailers and their components, so as long as your water and sewage hoses aren't anything out of the ordinary, you'll be fine. To tune into your favorite stations, you'll want to bring a cable cord that connects directly to the box at your campsite. I spoke with a friendly Cast Member back at the ranch, who shared that the cable boxes will be very close to your RV when it is parked; she suggested that your cable be at least 15-20 feet in length just to be safe. Should you need a digital converter, these are available at the Meadow Trading Post.

    It sounds like you are preparing for quite an adventure this summer. My oldest Mouseketeer is enamored with RVs, and while we have rented one close to home, we have yet to try out the glamping lifestyle in the Most Magical Place on Earth. It sounds like so much fun, and it's definitely on our bucket list! We especially want to book a stay at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort during the Halloween or Christmas season; many Guests go all out with decorations making the whole resort a very spooky or merry place to be.

    Thanks again for coming to see us, Denise. If there is anything else we can do as you rev up for your August vacation, be sure to swing by and visit again.
