Site 2031

Well, this was our first trip tent camping at FW in many years. It was also the first time I have stayed in the 2000 loop. As much as I loved having the TT in a premium loop, I have to honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed this trip!!! Of course we had exceptional weather, and that always helps when you're in a tent.







From the back of Site 2031 looking across the great divide over to 1000 loop.



Looking back toward our site from the dog walk behind 900 loop.



I was afraid I would feel so separated from the Meadow, and Settlement in this loop. However, it was not a bad walk from our site, down to the Group Camping area, then across this bridge and into 900 loop.



From the back of the 900 loop it's just a short walk to The Meadow.

Hi ynottony99, a few questions about this site. It's really pretty and looks to have ample space, both on the pad and in the surrounding area. We are checking in on a saturday night, so I doubt we'll get a site in 1500 that first night. We check out and back in the next day, and I think we could get a site in 1500, but I don't know if we want to move after setting up camp the night before. (We'll have a toddler and 2 other kids with us.)

So, here goes:

1. How long was the walk to the internal bus stop?

2. How long was the walk to the comfort station?

3. Was the walk through to the 900 loop really rugged ground, or just grass? (We have strollers with us and I'm wondering if it would be possible to ride the strollers through that path)

4. Could you hear the campfire/movie at night?

Thanks for any input!

2000 loop is big, and some sights are a pretty fair distance from the bus.

2. How long was the walk to the comfort station?

there are 2 comfort stations. We were about 5 sights from our cs. Again it is a big loop, and some sights will be more of a hike.

3. Was the walk through to the 900 loop really rugged ground, or just grass? (we have strollers with us and i'm wondering if it would be possible to ride the strollers through that path)

getting from 2000 to the group camping area requires cutting between 2 camp sites and there is a little "off roading" involved. Through the group camp sight you are walking on grass until you reach the bridge leading to 900. Once you are in 900 loop it is paved all the way.

4. Could you hear the campfire/movie at night?

yes we could hear it.

I wish i had more specifics for you. I think you will be able to size things up after you get there. Depending on the number of days you are staying, i am thinking you will want to move to 1500, all things considered.


thanks for any input!

Was that your site, Brent?

Edit: nevermind, I found your trip report (and thoughts on the site). Looking forward to reading it tomorrow!

1419

1419

This was our site this past weekend, site 1419. The motorhome is a 32 foot and there was more than enough room to park the jeep in front. We also could have parked further back if we wanted the back hanging over the canal, lol.

I'm pretty sure this is 824. Not our favorite, but great for the kids since we were right by the comfort station.

Site 2064


This site was great for us on this trip. It was not shaded very much of the day, which was great in the chilly weather, but in the Summer.....not so much.



There was a lot of foot traffic on this path that connects the folks on the other side of the loop with the Comfort Station and Bus Stop.



This site is directly across the road from the Comfort Station. Directly behind the Comfort Station is the Bus Stop for 2000.





Lots of open space behind the site, but the neighbors behind the site were almost as close as the ones to each side.



Although it is almost at the 'end' of the loop, it is just a short walk to the loop entrance.

Haha! It looks like that's three of us in a row who have been assigned 2064!

Excellent Info!

This is my first post to thank everyone for the great pics and information. I've been trolling this thread and ripping apart this whole site for all the WDW camping info I can get (I should probably send DisBoards some money; I'm sure I alone bumped their traffic to its monthly limits) in preparation for our first Fort stay ever in early Feb.

We've been campers for 2 years (with about 15 weekends under our belt now) so we're not newbies but are still working out the kinks. We have 4 kids, each one with their own jobs so we've gotten our setup/breakdown time to about 45 minutes but every time we're out we add to our have-to-buy or next-mod lists.

Full Disclosure: My wife and I were campers as kids and wanted to take our kids camping but never thought we could pull it off and so focused on WDW trips. On one of those trips we checked out the Fort and immediately knew what we had to do. The next month we bought a starter rig and still believe it to be our best investment ever. So, this trip will kind of be a 'full circle' for us and we couldn't be more excited.

We're coming from Cincinnati, OH (1000mi one-way) and it'll be our farthest trip ever, so to say I'm a bit nervous is an understatement. We've requested the 1400 loop and will be camping with friends who are staying in a cabin (not sure how far away, but we've got our bikes).

I already see that I have to print out my DisBoards flag and build a Mickey Lap Post before we head out and will be on the lookout for others. I've been impressed at the friendliness of campers so can only imagine how friendly DisBoards campers must be!

I've gotta say, though, I'm having a bit of Rig-Envy! Some of your setups are incredible! Ours is functional with few bells/whistles but since we're camping to get away from it all I'm fine with it

I'll try to make my post-limit before we go so I can upload pics of our site once it's done.

Again thanks to everyone for all the detailed info, pics, hints, tricks and tips.

Welcome to the boards (officially at least)!
Camping at Disney is the best way to go as far as I'm concerned.
Of course it's the only way I've ever gone so I may be a little biased.
Have a GREAT time and send lots of pictures.
