Nice photos...thanks for posting them. We haven't been to Animal Kingdom yet and plan to this year.

What's the story with the Airstream? Is that the entrance to the restaurant?

Airstream

Several people have posted pics earlier in other posts about it but I thought it would be fun to post it up once again.If I remember correctly,There is a booth in there for one family I think.When you go to Animal Kindom it is located in Dinoland and is on your right once you pass under the skeleton bridge.You can not miss it.

Dinoland is themed around an archaeological dig theme that turned kitschy roadside tourist attraction. The restaurant is kind of a compilation of different building elements all put together as if it were constructed of whatever happened to be lying around the dig site. One part of the restaurant is even a "canvas tent". In theory, the team on the dig site might have been staying in an Airstream while on their dig when they unearth the oldest duck fissile.

From the time Ft. Wilderness opened in 1971 through the late '70's or early '80's, Disney maintained several Airstream trailers for rent on a daily basis. When they discontinued offering them to the public, they kept the trailers on property for a variety of temporary purposes. This trailer was probably one of the original Airstreams that was rented to the public at Ft. Wilderness. There are a couple of others that can be seen at Disney "Hollywood" Studios, as it is now named, used as props for character greets and represent the "star's" dressing rooms. There are other places on WDW and Disneyland property that they can be sited from time to time.

Until recently, Donald's Breakfastasaurus was served as a character meal every morning at this restaurant and lunch was McDonald's fast food at this location. Now one of the other counter service restaurants has been remodeled to include a buffet and it serves the breakfast character meal. Now, breakfast is McD's breakfast at the Dinoland restaurant.

FT Wilderness

Ok...If anyone is there,We will be there till the 30th somewhere in the 300 loop.
I got plans to hit the rollercoasters this time.Breanna is really happy that she grew up a bit.Only rollercoaster I was able to ride was the one in toon town.
Now we can ride a bunch more rides and not be restricted from them because of her size.

Just got home from there last week - sorry to miss you two.

The parks are great and crowds are thin - This is the first reported drop in visitors since the park opened. If you are up to it - try the Rock'in Rollercoaster in MGM - it's great and has lots of thrills.

We were in the newly refurbished 500 loop across from the 300 loop. Not pet authorized but there were lots of them there.


BTW - just turn on the laptop - there will be service from the "air" all around.

We're not at Disney...wahhh! But, there is a vintage rally going to be there next week. Check this out:
http://www.airforums.com/forums/cale...=2009-1-29&c=1
I don't know what loop they will be in, but sounds like they have quite a few folks planning on being there. There are a couple of folks that were at the Can Opener going to be there so you might look 'em up and see some familiar faces.

Wish we were going to be there.

Have a great time and don't forget to ride Expedition Everest! I think Space Mountain has already been closed for refurbishment by now. Also, don't forget Tower of Terror.

Disney Military Salute

For those of you who are either active, or retired, military.....Disney has the best offer I have ever seen. The military member can receive a "complimentary" five-park hopper pass, good through 12/23/09 (includes water parks, Disney Quest, etc.). Up to five additional passes can be purchased for either family, or friends, for between $99-149 (depending on options). The passes are good for multiple visits.....up to the five-park total. Visit a local base Tour & Travel Office for more info. My wife and I received the equivalent of over $700 for $149.....hard to beat that deal. We plan on two trips to visit Mickey this year.

Ron

Great reading

Hi all -

I haven't been on the forum in many months so it was great to get an email about this subject.

Devoman, hope you are having a great time with your daughter. I will be meeting our Minnesota grandchildren(and their parents) there at Fort Wilderness in March. We will however, be staying in one of the cabins. Could you please let us know how the Wilderness bus system is now? Last time I was at Disney we stayed in Wilderness Lodge, so we just walked out to the dock.

It was great to review all the comments about the dining plan, because that is something that we have debated. Since we have a two year old in tow, we will need a nap time (and grandma might need one too), so I expect that we will be cooking in the cabin a bit.

I doubt that we will ever take Moby to Florida. Hubby has an aversion to traffic. He'd rather see mountains than Mickey.

As for me, I never get tired of Mickey - after all, our son is named Mickey!!

Military Discount

Fort Wilderness does offer a military discount for active/retired, but you have to ask for it.......not readily offered, and some reservation clerks do not know it exists.

A Premium site for $62 a nite in peak season sure beats $105......that's worth asking for!

Ron

Man, you just don't know what you are missing. There are tons of people that go to Ft. Wilderness and don't even go into the theme parks. We have annual passes so we can go into the parks as much as we want when we go to Ft. Wilderness but we always schedule at least one day to spend just in the campground. If we are there for a full week, we will schedule more.

One of our fellow forum members lives in the Orlando area and he and his family go to the Fort several times a year and he told me they haven't been in any of the parks in a couple of years. But, they have a tradition of going to Ft. Wilderness every year between Christmas and New Years. In fact, he works part of that week and commutes to the office some times from their Airstream.

Now I realize Disney is not everybody's cup of tea and I'm not saying you should travel all the way from New York to Ft. Wilderness just to stay at the campground, but you might consider taking your grand-kids one day or going with your own kids. There is nothing like seeing Disney through the eyes of a child. Sometimes, as in my case, that child's eyes might be middle-aged.
