    Hi, we're visiting for a brief visit to Orlando in August. We're unfortunately not doing the the parks on this visit, but we would like to do the Horse Trek at Fort Wilderness. Is it possible for guests to book this without theme park/hotel tickets

    Hi Sarah!

    If you're looking for a magical experience amidst the rustic charm of Disney, a visit to Tri-Circle-D Ranch nestled within The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort is an absolute must. 

    Did you know that Tri-Circle-D Ranch has been a part of the Disney experience since the early days, dating back to when Walt Disney himself had a passion for horses? It's home to some of the famous Disney equine stars, including Cinderella's ponies and the majestic horses of Main Street, U.S.A.

    Now, onto the Horseback Trail Riding adventure! Even if you're not planning on diving into the thrills of the theme parks, Fort Wilderness offers a delightful opportunity for horse enthusiasts. Horseback riding is available, and reservations are strongly recommended to ensure you secure your spot, especially during the busy summer months.

    While same-day reservations and walk-ins are possible on a limited basis, availability can vary. Since you'll be visiting in the summer, booking an early morning ride is wise, as Florida's weather can sometimes bring unexpected rain showers later in the day, which might impact your ride.

    Speaking from personal experience, I can attest that horseback riding at The Cabins and Campsites of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort is truly an unforgettable experience. It's one of the best experiences I've had at Disney, and my kids keep asking to do it again. So saddle up and get ready for a memorable adventure!
