    Tent Camping?

    Does anyone tent camp at WDW? (We usually use our travel trailer but live too far away to travel the distance to FL in our allotted vacation time.) It seems as though most of the people we've seen at Ft. Wilderness all have really big rigs. Would we be crazy to even consider this?

    Re: Tent Camping?

    I am anything but a camper but have read so many threads about people who love it. Can't imagine doing so when it is really hot though, body would need time to rejuvenate. Maybe this will get you started.

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: Tent Camping?

    I tented there in August with a couple of buddies. We were in the "basic" section. It still had water and electric hook-up, even though is was the basic site. There were mostly tents in our loop.
    The happiest place on earth is where my kids are!

    It was great and we also took our Coleman tent this one here was a bit cozy there but overall fun.

    Re: Tent Camping?

    When I was a little tyke, this was the way my family vacationed @ WDW. Back then, the rooms at the Poly were $100 per night (wow!) and we simply couldn't afford multiple nights, so we would drive down, set up the tent and stay the first 5 nights. The last night, we would sometimes splurge and get a room at the Poly if one was available. Honestly, the cast members and people @ Ft. Wilderness were so nice I don't think we would have had a better time anywhere else.
