    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.

    [​IMG]

    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.

    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 :banana: 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.

    I've looked through this entire thread (just recently registered here) and enjoyed it very much, but...

    It's been some time since our last visit, but I seem to remember a lot more vegitation around the sites where now there seems to be just a base of pine needles. Am I remembering wrong, or have they for some reason destroyed all that undergrowth? I remember sites being a lot more 'private', not being able to see through the woods. Now, in some of the photos, it seems you can see three rows over.

    They started clearing out some invasive plants starting in 2008 I think, and have not replaced that undergrowth yet.

    As Dan said all the scrub plants were removed. They were replaced with small native plants, which are slowly growing. But I don't think it will ever be quite as private as it was.

    Average site for 2000 loop. Biggest complaint was all the foot traffic on the sidewalk to the comfort station.

    This was our first trip in our new tent. We had seen several of these on our last trip in December. It is a Coleman, Hampton 9 man tent. Hinged doors are awesome!

    Lots of room, and my wife knows how to make it very homey!

    From November 2010. The site had pretty good shade. Loop interior. About a 1 minute walk from the comfort station and maybe a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. Good location overall.

    Looking at these pictures makes me want to go back! Here are our pictures from October 2009 in the 1500 loop.

    Our site was right behind the bus stop-we asked for close to the pool, bus, and CS and we certainly got all three!

    I know this site well. Any time we have stayed at FW we stayed inthe 1500 loop near the cs so we have walked by this site well. I miss FW. We haven't stayed in a long time but everytime we have been back to DW we have stopped in and walked around.
