2 days home and I have Fort withdrawal
We had an absolutely awesome trip at the Fort last week. We are DVC members and usually stay at resorts but as a camping family how could we not try it. I think we will always be camping there from now on using our points. I cant stay enough good things!!!!
After a long nights drive from NJ we arrived a day early planning on a local hotel for the night but I got to thinking and called WDW and asked for a extra day added on. The woman at the fort said "No problem, head on over and we'll be waiting for you"!! WOO HOO I never saw my hubby drive so fast!!!
We arrived very happily and talk with the Cast member at the check-in booth about the NJ weather disaster we encountered while she tried to get us a site close to the comfort stations. After 30 minutes of chatting and a "I need to clarify this site" she returned with "Well unfortunately there were no Popup sites near comfort stations, so I had to upgrade you to a premium site in loop 1000 and also we have a Campfire gift set for you to enjoy one evening"................ I was speechless and elated at the same time.
Our site was 1003 and perfect. Only downfall was we have a very large 14ft highwall Popup and I had to look at these HUGE Class A RVs all week. Jealousy took over and I convinced DH to upgrade to a Class C so we go hunting this weekend.
We rented a Golf Cart from Kenny and that was the highlight of my kids trip. We spent many hours looping and exploring.
The Fort emptied out around Tuesday afternoon and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Pool days went from only my kids to maybe 3-4 more. Buses were empty as well as boats. Campfires brought in other resort guests and made for a fun time. We walked up to any restaurant and maybe waited 10 minutes for a table. We stuffed and I mean stuffed ourselves at the TE buffets for both breakfast and dinner multiple times.
After 8 days of bliss we had to leave and now that we are home I cant wait to go back ASAP. Hopefully next time in a new RV.
I thank everyone here on the boards for all the input about the Fort. It made planning so easy.
