Hi. You cannot drive around the resort with a car. They have an internal bus system, or you may rent a cart (a truly memorable experience in and of itself). We stayed in Cedar Circle 2500 loop. Quiet pool close by and laundry if needed. Internal bus system reliable and timely too. Have a wonderful time. March should be a great time!!

You can drive it to the parks, just not within the campground itself unless you are going to your site is my understanding. Have fun!

When being chased by a bear, you don't have to outrun the bear. You just have to outrun the other guy.

It's free, and it's a lot of fun. Just find out that time C&D will be there during your trip. Our last time, we missed C&D, but still had fun roasting marshmellows and watching the movie.

--Clarification - getting to see C&D and do the singalong is free. The movie is also free. If you want anything to roast over the fire (marshmellows, etc.), there is a charge for that, or you can bring your own food. They sell sticks if you need them.

Internal Busses

I am sorry if this is in the thread, but i could not find it. Do the internal buses still stop at WL, I do enjoy the WL but have decide to stay at FW this time. I have stayed in the cabins befor, but it was probably 10 years ago. to give an example of how long it has been since I stayed there when we were there last the internal busses were Boone and crockett not colors and at least one of them went to WL bus stop.

I was just there last week and
there was a bus going to WL from
FW. And the theme park busses stopped at WL before or after FW too.

If you have the pin code that's good for all year, they are 40%!

We will have our car with us. Can we drive and park at the outpost to grab the theme park buses so we can avoid the internal bus?

Per Fort Wilderness Gazette;

Can I drive my car to locations within Fort Wilderness, and where do I park?

No, motor traffic is permitted when entering or exiting the Campground only. Please board the bus for all destinations within the Campground. Parking is permitted for one vehicle at your campsite or Wilderness Cabin; additional parking is located at the front desk.


It appears to me that you are allowed to park at the Reception Outpost (front desk) and take the external buses.

Yes, parking at the outpost is what my parents do each day since we usually have too many people to fit on the golf cart! No problem at all.

I thought you only got 30% for them since they are considered a moderate.
