    FORT WILDERNESS CAMPFIRE:

    1) Location:
    . . . within the Fort Wilderness Campgrounds
    . . . near Meadows Trading Post, behind swimming pool area
    2) Transportation to Fort Wilderness
    . . . car to Fort Wilderness parking lot
    . . . bus to Fort Wilderness from almost anywhere inside WDW
    . . . boat to FW from Magic Kingdom or Wilderness Lodge Resort
    . . . monorail to Contemporary Resort, then boat to FW
    . . . most resorts have a separate bus to Fort Wilderness after 5:00pm
    4) Transportation to Campfire
    . . . take internal bus and ask for Campfire bus stop
    5) Time
    . . . spring and summer months - 8:00pm start time
    . . . fall and winter months - 7:00pm start time
    . . . every night of the year, weather permitting
    . . . if rain. sing-along is on trading post porch
    6) Activities
    . . . two fire pits right of movie for roasting marshmallows (thru the movie)
    . . . marshmallows/smores available for EXPENSIVE purchase at Chuck Wagon
    . . . Chip-n-Dale at fire pit for photos and autographs (approx 40-min)
    . . . sing-along in front of screen, usually with a solo guitarist (appox 40-min)
    . . . animated or live action outdoor Disney film (approx 1½-hrs)
    . . . short walk to a play area
    7) Things to Know
    . . . free to any WDW resort guest (yes, actually free ! )
    . . . one of few places for autographs not requiring a meal or admission
    . . . bring a light jacket, as it can get cool after sunset
    . . . seating is on benches and bleachers, so a pad is nice comfort
    . . . there are grassy areas to bring a blanket and sit on the ground
    . . . better yet, bring folding chairs
    . . . fortunately, they do not grade you on your voice during the sing-along
    . . . there is no dress code
    . . . plenty of CM's around for child safety
    . . . excellent bus transportation before and after Campfire
    . . . good activity after the early show at Hoop-Dee-Do-Review
    . . . you many bring you own marshmallows-food-drinks-beer-coolers
    . . . pizza, hot dogs, candy, nachos, popcorn for purchase at Chuck Wagon
    . . . coffee, beer, soda, juices available for purchase at the Chuck Wagon
    . . . for rain, they move the sing-along, but you will still get wet

    NOTE: We find this to be a really great activity for either the first night at
    WDW, or the last night before going home. Good time for family bonding, and
    nice to veg-out.

    Thanks. Is it listed anywhere on the site? If it's 8:00 I have time tonight but not 7:00.

    Well, we made it there last night but it took ages. It was dark at that time and I found the place very confusing. I would like to go back but have another question.

    When we got off the boat (we parked at TTC), as we were walking off I noticed the line to get on the boat was INSANE. As I asked around, I was told the only way to get back was to take a boat (whether it was to Wilderness Lodge or MK). This was around 8:00pm Any idea why that line was so long? My son wanted to stay for the movie but I made him leave because I was worried we wouldn't get back easily with that long line. As it was, by the time we got to the dock, there was hardly anyone there (and the water parade was going).


    Can you park at this resort during the day without a dinner reservation? If yes, is there a fee? What if you have an AP?
