Photo TR: Walt Disney World Fort Wilderness

Postby robbalvey » Sat Nov 13, 2010 7:51 pm

Hey everyone!

Although we are in Orlando for IAAPA we are also here on a "family Walt Disney World vacation." We will probably have a series of mini-trip reports like this one over the next few days.

This report is about the Campfire Sing-A-Long at Fort Wilderness Resort. This event is open to everyone and it's basically completely free! (If you want to buy some marshmallows to roast, you can, or you can even bring your own stash!)

It's one of those "hidden gems" at the Walt Disney World resort that we encourage everyone to check out...

Image
First we checked into our hotel - Port Orleans French Quarter. KidTums seems to like it already!

Image
Can anyone guess where we are at?

Image
It's Chip N Dale's Sing-A-Long campfire at Fort Wilderness!

Image
Of course it's the star of the show! And Chip N Dale are here too!

Image
This is one of those little WDW "hidden gems." They've been doing this for decades. You can roast marshmallows, hot dogs, etc...

Image
Mmmm....wieners and marshmallows.

Image
Chip n Dale come out an the sing-a-long begins!

Image
Kevin Yee loves him some wiener!

Image
"This is how you roast a marshmallow without burning your hands off!"

Image
"I just hope I don't burn my hands off!"

Image
"Ok, no really daddy, what exactly is this thing I'm eating???"

Image
After the camp fire, after the Disney trivia, after the sing-a-long it's campfire movie time!!!

Image
Tonight's movie is Monsters Inc. Did we mention all of this is put on for FREE??? (you can either bring your own food to roast or they sell it!) This event is open to anyone, you don't even need to be staying at a resort to attend! Seriously awesome WDW "hidden gem." We highly recommend this!

Image
PIZZA TIME!

More to come soon! If you liked this mini-trip report and want us to do more, comment and let us know!

Always wanted to do this, and it's on the top of the list for our next trip after seeing these pictures.

Looks like one of those low-key "check-in day" things that's also a great "family" night.

^ That is EXACTLY what it was for us. After the red-eye flight into Orlando, we just kind of hung out in our room for a bit, took a stroll around the resort area, and then headed to Fort Wilderness. It was the PERFECT "relaxing" activity for having just flown in and needing something fun, but different, to do.

This is the great thing about the Walt Disney Resort. No matter how many times you visit it, there is always something like this to do for the first time that makes the place so special.

^ You beat me to it!

Anyway, these mini-reports I look forward to as I often visit the Orlando area in the off season (jan-early march). Being as many of the parks close at 6 or 7 during this time, I'm always looking for something to fill in the time with and this appears to fit that bill (of course, only if I had kids or a group of females with me, going alone would look, well, like I was a creeper)

I always forget about that sing-a-long. Next time I'm in Orlando for a few days I'm going to try to check it out (if I remember). They do movies on the beach at the Beach/Yacht Clubs too (or they used to at least).

I think I need to check out this campfire too. Hmmm...can a TPR invasion of the Ft. Wilderness campfire be in our future? :)

It's odd, but Orlando strangely looks like Wisconsin for some reason. I think it's just me...
