    I was wondering what bugs might I encounter on my trip while at Disneyworld I will be arriving 8/10/2013 for a week and staying at Fort Wilderness Campground. Need to know what to Bring for those pesky critters LOL

    Hi, Kelly!  There is a pretty good control of bugs throughout Walt Disney World.  Plants and flowers are chosen for specific locations to attract birds that are most likely to come and keep the bug population down, plus they do treat the areas for insects.  You may find the occasional mosquito, possibly a lightning bug (firefly), and possibly a Love Bug (or two, as they usually travel in pairs).  

    If you use something such as Deep Woods Off or one of the regular insect repellents, that should keep you pretty well covered.  Most over the counter bug repellents seems to be sufficient for anything you might encounter.

    I hope that helps!  Have a great time!
