AdventureThe great part about Walt Disney World® is that they offer so much more than the parks themselves.

If you are an outdoors and animal lover (horses in particular), get a behind the scenes look at some of the magic that goes on inside the parks while exploring the trails of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground® at Tri-Circle-D Ranch.

Once on the ranch, you can explore a wide variety of horses such as Appaloosas, Arabians, Belgians, Clydesdales, paint horses, Percherons, quarter horses, and Shetland ponies.

You can also get an exclusive look at Cinderella’s Ponies and the magical horses you see on Main Street, U.S.A.

The best part about visiting Tri-Circle-D Ranch, in my opinion, is the various trail rides you can take!

Horseback Trail Rides:

-$46 per person/45 minutes

-Perfect for beginners or intermediate riders, guests 9 years of age and up can ride through the woodlands surrounding the Resort. Be on the lookout for wildlife!

Wagon Rides:
