    Keep an eye on Ebay for the shirt. They do come up every once in a while.
    In fact that round sign you speak of was sold a few months back on Ebay. These are some of the photos that were posted on the auction.

    Here is the scan from the back of the old check-in folder. If you notice the rail crosses the water just east of 500 loop and north of 1500 loop. I think he bridge in question earlier is the one east of the 500 loop. If you walk along the road in this area it is easy to see the old right of way, with a barricade out near the water. Someone who was actually at FW in those glory days, may be able to correct me, or give us more insight.

    The tents are $33.75/night in addition to the camp space rental. When I visted in mid October, I went ahead and popped for a "preferred" site for $148.00 for three nights with a AAA discount. Soooo... by my math, that means, I ended up paying a grand total of $83.09/night ( a smidge better than one of the Pops moneywise -- but tons more fun (to my way of thinking anyway :thumbsup2 ) vacation-wise.

    Here is the Disney phone number to rent a tent: 1.407.939.7807 -- you will want to select option #4 for group camping -- which seems odd but at least it worked for me. I understand they also have folding cots for $5/night -- although I chose to bring an inflatable bed with me.

    Here are a couple pictures of the tent I rented. It was plenty big for me all by my lonesome ( I was there for the F&W Festival and couldn't interest anybody else in joining me) . Size-wise -- if you are a "close" family and don't mind being cozy, I think you will be fine.

    Good Luck!

    ---EDITED TO REFLECT MY LAPSE INTO HONORARY BLONDENESS --

    The cabins are AWESOME! The four of you would be quite comfortable in one -- with plenty of privacy (unlike four in a tent -- DUH! :confused3 ). I don't know why but I totally missed the fact you were asking about both FW stay options ... :rolleyes1

    This is actually a sign on the wall of the train station in AK but I think it sums up how I (a self-confessed former room service princess) now feel about camping... :lmao:
