We have been here since Sunday and have had no problems with the wifi.

Can anyone confirm if they have regular wagon rides at Ft. Wilderness (not the $60 sleigh ride), to see the Christmas lights/decorations around the campground? I keep finding conflicting responses. Posting here because I figure some will take the boat over from WL, and we will be there next month. Thanks!

I'm arriving 12-12-12, what is the chance that there will be any WL Christmas pins left for sale? I noticed there is a limited edition pin of 750. I really want one!

It's pretty good wifi. I uploaded pics to facebook and the boards on my ipad and everything with no issues.

Here is the AllEars wagon ride info. The sleigh rides require reservations and the wagon rides don't accept reservations:

Wagon Rides at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground
Take an old-fashioned, horse-drawn wagon ride which offers a 45-minute scenic tour around Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

Wagon Rides depart at 7:00pm and 9:30pm nightly from the front of Pioneer Hall.

Fireworks Wagon Rides at 8:30pm for the 9:00pm fireworks at the Magic Kingdom. (offers audio track for show - subject to fireworks being held at the Magic Kingdom.)

Price: $8.00 Adult; $5.00 Child (ages 3-9) Children under 3 are complimentary. Children ages 3-9 must be accompanied by an adult.

Reservations: Not accepted; Wagon Rides are on a first-come, first-served basis only.


Group Wagon Rides at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground
Group wagon rides are available throughout the year. They can be booked by calling the Trail Ride Reservation area at 407-824-2734. The rate for a group is $300 per hour. The wagon will hold 30 adults or a combination of 35 adults and children.

I would think the chance is good since they will have only been on sale less than a month when you get there

And, of course, flying down on Southwest.

Hot dog! So excited!
Yippee for an adults-only trip!

When is your next VWL stay? New Years? Or are you at WL?

That's what I've been thinking! I already know the WL is worth it, and OFC will just make it that much better!
