My 1980's dream of Camping at the Fort, Fall 2012: Pop ✔. BWV ✔. Next up: THE FORT!

************************************************** ****

So, I've never subscribed to the bucket list theory, nor things to do before I'm fifty..................til now.

And all of a sudden, I realize: I always did have a bucket list.... I just called it "someday":

Ever since my first semester at University in 1980 when we dreamed over travel brochures & contiki tours, I thought how perfect could it be to camp at Disney.
But, until recently, Disney was a low priority in life (I know, I know, I'm a late bloomer). I've had 3 WDW trips in the last 4 years in fall, stayed at POR each time (and YC once). Nobody seemed interested in camping with me.

************************************************** *****

So gosh darn it, I'm gonna go tentcamping at Disney this October. If I'm solo, I'm solo, so be it! One's never really at alone at Disney anyway!

I'm flying down, I'm not getting a rental, but darn it, if others can manage so can I!

So this will be my Q&A thread, a pseudo-pre-trippie, and just for Born2Fish--because of all the piggies in his siggy-- maybe even a post-trip report w/ photos and all!
