Ft. Wilderness Walt Disney World

Our campsite at Ft. Wilderness, Walt Disney World, Florida.


Have you missed me?

We're in the Florida Keys and this is the first time we have had any internet service while on vacation.  Walt Disney World has internet, expensive internet, at $9.95 per day.  We tried it while at the campground and again while staying at a cabin but the service was so poor Disney credited the charges back to us.  We were told that they were installing WiFi and that it should be available by the holidays.  

The internet service is excellent at this campground down in the Keys.  We have a waterfront site here and as I'm sitting in our van I can look out at the Gulf of Mexico and palm trees!  The last two days we  camped at the Bahia Honda State Park (only electric service there) and had a blast snorkeling in their beautiful waters. 

My "Mickey Mouse" made out of pine cones!

Ft. Wilderness Campground is fun to stay at while visiting Walt Disney World. 

We rent a golf cart so we have "wheels" to get around the campground loops and down to the marina for the ferry to the is fun during Halloween to drive around looking at all the RVs and their decorations.  Even golf carts are decorated for the holiday. 

Lots of the campers decorate for Halloween and it's a big deal at the parks too. 

And some go way out there with tons of decorations. 

Toy Story Midway Mania! attraction at Hollywood Studios

This is my favorite to play it!  It's a 3-D action game with all the Toy Story characters.

Me...waiting to play my favorite game!

The day we went to Hollywood Studios it was packed and we only got to play "Toy Story Midway Mania" once. 

Supper at the Trails End Restaurant our first day at Ft. Wilderness.

Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World

It was overcast our first few days at WDW.   But all in all we have had great weather. 

We spent just over two weeks at WDW.   We were able to rest between visiting the parks and had time to do some fun stuff at the canoeing one day and then taking a 17' Boston Whaler out on the lake another day and even each of us taking out the small Sea Racers another day.

I probably won't be able to post again until we're back home in the middle of November.  

Tomorrow we head north to Stuart, Florida to visit my cousin and then on to Atlanta, GA to visit college friends before heading home to Philly.

And, unfortunately, to answer - Kate - The Garden Bell - I haven't been able to "pin" while on vacation.  

Maybe I can do some pinning tonight...starting tomorrow no internet again until home. 

Thanks for visiting me while I've been on vacation! 

I'm not looking forward to cooler weather at home!
