FortFiends.net

My spell checker prefers "f r iends".
It is "fiends"

Thought I'd repost this...as it is informative & located at the begining

I thought I'd repost this since it has good information in it.

RV-ers who prefer to be near guest services, the marina, the beach, and the restaurant and tavern should go for loops 100, 200, 700, and 400 (in that order).

Loops near the campground's secondary facility area with pool, trading post, bike and golf-cart rentals, and campfire program are 1400, 1300, 600, 1000, and 1500, in order of preference.

If you are looking for a tranquil, scenic setting among mature trees, we reommend loops 1800, 1900, 1700, and 1600, in that order, and the backside sites on the 700 loop.

The best loop of all, and the only one to offer both a lovely setting and proximity to key amenities is loop 300.

With the exception of loops 1800 and 1900, avoid sites within 40 yards of the loop entrance. These sites are almost always flanked by one of the main traffice arteries within Fort Wilderness. Further, sites on the outside of the loop are almost always preferable to those in the center of the loop.

RV-ers should be forewarned that all sites are back-ins and that although most sites will accommodate large rigs, the loop access roads are pretty tight and narrow.

Hope this helps,
Kathy

For Everyone but especially anyone with Disabilities

You should be able to access this without joining as it's in the general topic area. Someone, whose husband has disabilities, drove around and picked out the sites nearest to the comfort stations.

Premium Loops
Sites Near the Comfort Station - Premium Full Hookup - Fort Fiends

Preferred Loops
Sites Near the Comfort Station - Preferred Full Hookup - Fort Fiends


Full Hook-up Loops
Sites Near the Comfort Station - Full Hookup - Fort Fiends

What are we now, like about 1 year off give or take a few days?

Andrea and I were just working on the Argosy a bit last weekend and we commented that it was time to start thinking about next year's camping season. However, I was reminded of this rally at the end of the season that we have to "reserve" for. I'm anxious to get to it! But, the Argy needs a bit more TLC before the trip. We will be using the Argy quite a bit in the next year in prep for the Disney trip.

You know it might be a year off (just under) but the last 6 months have flown by... so it will be here before you know it.

I can't wait to see the Argy in person. Really I can't wait to meet everyone....

I think you should likely see the Argy at least twice before Disney. I expect that you will be at The Bash and Fall Colors in 2012?

The Bash for sure.. need to check out the info on the Fall Colors as I'd like to do that one as well. It's time to start planning for next year.

Thank you so very much for the suggestion of FortFiends.net. I am researching the different dining plans as well as where to eat. This site has a wealth of information as well as pics. Great site for planning our Disney vacation.

Just purchased a great countdown to Disney sign. It is one ft. by one ft. white metal. Holes are punched along the rim and a red ribbon with white poke-a-dots is threaded through the holes. There is a chalkboard "Mickey" on the front with "Disney in _____ days" written in red cursive letters. I liked it so much that I called my brother and asked if he wanted one. They are going in Decmber of 2012 with their 5 year old.

I have also been watching Youtube "Disney Reveals". Videos of how parents surprise their kids with a Disney vacation. Fun.

Thanks again,
Kathy

Too much research and looking at the food will make you hungry. Several of the Trip Reports also have food pictures in them, particularly Runner ... aka Ed's Halloween thread. The dining planning can be overwhelming as there are so many options....

Counter sounds really cool. How many days are left? I know the months/weeks...

I feel a trip to Youtube coming on... I bet there are some good ones.

We have had another person RSVP.........
