Thanks leefields, I was trying to remember Tropical Palms. I have heard of them, but can't remember if it is good or bad.

Since FW is booked, I'll check with my Disney forum and see if there is any recommendations there.

Got a good report on KOA, some sites have shade (most likely no paved parking pad though) and some don't (most have paved parking pad). Cost for your time frame about $78/night.

Got a good report on Tropical Palms. Cost should be between $49-$59/night depending on Standard or Premium site. Photos on website looked nice. Walt Disney World Tropical Palms Funresort - Kissimmee, florida RV Parks

Still trying to get into FW. I am leaning towards Tropical Palms if I can't get in FW. I like the trees at Tropical Palms.

Thanks for alll the information.
Jim

When we got our Airstream Memorial Day Weekend we tried to get a reservation for FW for the 4th of July and all we could get was one night in a partial hook-up. Turned out that they wouldn't even let a travel trailer in a partial hook-up site but I didn't find this out 'till later. I kept calling back until I got the second night added, then changed to a full hook up, then a pet loop, then the third night added. It may take persistence, but you might be able to get all the nights you want. You might also see if you can get some of the nights in one loop and move to another later in the trip. I know this is not what you want to do, but it might make it possible to at least get a reservation for all nights and then as the date draws nearer you can check to see if there are cancellations in the loop you start off in. You can always make a reservation at both and cancel FW if things don't go like you want them and go with the remaining reservation off property. Otherwise, Tropical Palms does look nice from their website if you just want to have things settle once and for all. I believe they are part of the Encore network. Don't know what that means if anything.

Another alternative I've been advised of is Sherwood Forrest. It is owned by the same chain as Tropical Palms. During Christmas week it was $100/night. They don't have cable but do offer activities and wireless internet for $15/week. This may be another alternative for you.
