Yea you might want to bring some insect repellent. We were there in May, DH's legs got eaten up by mosquitoes, DD and her BF not that much, but I got bit by something weird. No matter where I am the mosquitoes love me and in my life I have gotten bit by spiders or something that causes blister or they look like blisters. Anyway while we were there something bit me on my leg and caused a normal looking blister but it was real rubbery, lol, I was even shaving my legs one morning and accidently shaved over it, freaked out then I looked at it was still there, didn't bust at all. I wasn't worried about it, it did scare DD but I have allergic reactions to bee stings and mosquitoes so I just took some antihistamines and after three days I looked down and it had busted. So bring some repellent and have a great time cause even if you get bit just remember your at Disney World! Have a great time!

Sounds like a no-see-um bite. Mosquitos LOVE me, but never bothered me at the campground. However, the noseeums got me...and they were way worse at AKL. They resemble a small pimple blister that itches like nobody's business. My bro is a CM so he immediately knew what bit me.

This blistered up to the size of an eraser on a new pencil, do you think this could still have been a noseeum? It was a bad year around here this year, well really bad March and April, between my mom's health problems and all the tornadoes so I was determined not to let anything get me down so I just didn't worry about it but now I wonder what it could have been.

So sorry to hear about your mom's health and the tornadoes. Sounds like you've been through quite a lot lately. My DH went to AL after the tornadoes hit and he said it was so, so bad.

About that bite, did you only receive one? I had about 4-5 small-pimply bites mainly around my ankles, back of legs/knees, and around my bust area. Yep, dumb me forgot to put on bugspray! And I'm not sure why I received them in the weirdest areas of my body - I guess they like hiding?

Anyways, they were much bigger in size by the time I finished scratching the dickens out of them. They blistered, oozed, and crusted -gag- sorry for the glorious details.

I have no idea how convenient it would be or anything like that, but it does appear to be cheaper. He said that the next time we go to FW, he will at least check it out.
Does anyone have experience renting from these folks? I'd all but ruled out the cabins for our fall trip because we'd really want to have a 6 passenger cart for our stay and neither Disney nor Kenny/Tee Time have them. If this place rents to campers at Ft Wilderness the cabins might be back on my short list.

I've never heard of the business in the link (Cartland of Lakeland), but I called someone yesterday I read about over on the Camping Board. His name is Steve Senesi ************ and his weekly rates are as follows:

4 seater carts for $250+tax
6 seater carts for $350+tax

However, it looks like Cartland of Lakeland may have the better $325 rate.
**Edit** You'll have to go up to the $425 Silver rate with the headlights required at FW, so Steve is cheaper.

Beautiful shots. Makes me want to leave right now! Love the Spanish Moss. We always knew we were getting closer to our vacation destination when we could see it. Thanks for taking me back!

No problem! It's such a great resort...I don't think it gets noticed like some of the others do....oh well....it will just be easier for me to get a reservation, right!

Hi y'all! Are there any cabins near Pioneer Hall? If not, which cabin loop is closest to it, thanks!

Do Bay Tree Lake and Palmetto Path have cabins or are they for the RVs? I can't recall.

Thank-you, I have that map but I couldn't tell if there were cabins obscured by the 100, 200, etc. numbers.

IKR, why in the world would they put the numbers smack dab on top of the images? I'm sure someone will chime in with a better answer to your question.
