    I am so thrilled to say we are under the two week mark for our very first visit to FWC

    I am Stoked!

    We are tent camping (with ac)

    I would so appreciate any seasoned campers that have any advice or tips for our first stay.

    We rented a golf cart on site. We’re doing a 13x9 tent, Air mattress & screened in 10x10 canopy. It’s just two of us (both adults). We will also be using our portable AC (God willing) and we’re bringing a small tv ONLY because the Disney cartoons really make it feel like we’re there.

    Can someone tell me how long the plug in is on the camp sites for the golf carts? Will it be taking up one of the 110v outlets or a different one? There’s 4 right?

    If we choose the Minnie van service do they pick us up at the front or at the loop?

    Does the ice machine take debit cards?

    Should we bring bug spray (I’m a born and raised Floridian so I know how bad the bugs are but wasn’t sure)

    Do we need to bring all of our own toiletries?

    I'll help with some of your questions. It sounds like you have a pretty good plan.

    Golf cart cord- The one I rented last month had a long cord in a reel under the back seat. I'd say it was close to 15 ft.

    Minnie Vans pick up/drop off at the Outpost (unless something has changed). I have only ever seen them at the Outpost drop off.

    Not sure about the ice machines- never used them

    A month ago, they were still handing out Off wipes at check in. We never used them though. Didn't have any mosquito problems. But that seems to be variable this Summer. Some weeks have been terrible, others, like my visit, where there is nothing.

    Toiletries? Except for TP in the comfort stations, if you don't bring it, you won't have it.

    Have a great time. It should be a great time to go.

    Ice machines are credit or debit only. They also have ice at the trading posts where you can pay cash or use magic bands.

    Sounds like you have really got a handle on this! We will be there in less than two weeks too.
    You will love having the golf cart to check out all of the Halloween decorations on the sites.
    Last time we were there (in the spring) the Minnie Vans were allowed to go on FW property to pick up and deliver guests. We saw them driving through the loops a few times. We have not stayed in the tent loop, but the other sites have an additional plug receptacle at the front of the site, wich we've always used for the cart.
