MODS- PLEASE REMOVE! Does anyone use tents at The Fort

I did not know there was a whole board devoted to camping at The Fort! Can this be moved over the the Camping board? Thanks!

Or is all trailers/pop-ups/ RVs? Just curious. I want to go back to Disney in 2015 but hubby does not bc of the cost. I am trying to find ways to cut the cost a little bit, and I figure The Fort is the least expensive on-site option. However, we don't have a trailer. My family loves to camp and I think staying there would appeal hubby's camping side, but I don't want to be the only family staying in a tent!

When looking at the map, there are "comfort stations"- are there showers in the comfort station? I guess this would be the deciding factor. I don't want to take "pool baths" all week (you know what I am talking about! )

Thanks!

Yes, there are definitely people that tent-camp at FW, been there, done that a couple of times. And they have lovely facilities, with nice showers.
