We're here!

We arrived around 11:45 this morning and were greeted by a very friendly CM and no line! Check - in was a breeze - I had originally requested 700 loop and was assigned to it but the site wasn't ready. We opted to move to a non-pet loop and chose site 1402. As I told the CM, this is our first trip, so we don't really have a preference. Love the site but it is bit noisey being backed up to the road. I'm sure that won't keep me awake tonight - after just 3 hrs sleep last night and 7 hrs at EPCOT, I am exhausted!
FW is just as beautiful as everyone said, but pictures just doesn't do it justice. My son said he never wanted to leave! Looking forward to exploring this beautiful piece of heaven. We are hitting AK in the a.m. And then heading back to the Fort for HDDR tomorrow evening. Will try to post tomorrow!

Sounds like something a camping trip could cure

Driving not flying, It's hard to read the street signs from that far up!

Have Fun,
We've had sites in that area, arty: a little noisy but we managed, til the next visit, a little further around the loop did the trick. We love loop 1400. Looking forward to a trip report. popcorn:

There are no bad site at the Fort. With the amount of time spent there it is not an issue for us. Enjoy your first trip you will be hooked and be back soon.
