Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is a resort which is located in Walt Disney World near Orlando, Florida and is one of the resorts in the Magic Kingdom Area of Walt Disney World. The resort officially opened on November 19, 1971, just weeks after the Walt Disney World Resort opened to the public.
Fort Wilderness is designed with a rustic theme with tree-lined winding roads which loop around to the various regions. Part of the resort is filled with campsites, where visitors with tents or Recreational Vehicles can stay. The remainder of the lodging area is filled with cabins, which are designed to look like log cabins. The interior of the cabins is simple, designed to evoke the feeling of a simple forest lodge.
The resort also includes two dinner shows, the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue and Mickey's Backyard BBQ, and a buffet, the Trail's End Restaurant, as well as other activities, such as fishing and horseback riding.
There's also a playground and a swimming pool. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
FORT WILDERNESS RAILROAD
Many years ago they used to have their own steam locomotive system. Here you can see pictures, video, and some history about it.
I remember the train back when I was a child going to River Country.
