Fort Wilderness Pools & Recreation

The larger main pool and kiddie pools are located near the Meadow Trading Post. Keeping with the wilderness theme, guests can go horseback riding, have pony rides, visit the petting farm, go on nightly hay rides or on fishing excursions along the campground's canals or on Bay Lake.  Equipment is available to buy or rent.  Those wishing for a little more exercise can rent bicycles, jog on the 2.3 mile jogging trail, do the Fitness Trail, play beach volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, horseshoes or tetherball, or go on a nature walk along the Swamp Trail.  


At the marina, guests can rent canoes, kayaks, sailboats, pedal boats, pontoon boats, water mice or go water-skiing.  There are 2 arcades and playground areas for children as well.  Two lighted tennis courts are available for tennis buffs.  Forget your racquet?  No problem, equipment can be rented.  Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground is also home to the Tri-Circle-D Ranch where the draught horses used to pull the trolleys down Main Street are housed.  A visit to the "lawnmower tree" is fun to see.  This is where a tree somehow grew around a lawn mower and can be found just off the sidewalk on the way to the marina.  A campfire program is held nightly at the Meadow Trading Post.  It features a sing-along, Disney movies and cartoons. Marshmallows can be toasted over the campfires.  You can bring your own or buy them there.  The Chuckwagon is located there and sells pizza, hot dogs, popcorn, nachos, candy and beverages for those who want something a little more substantial.  Look for Chip and Dale to visit here. 

This entertainment is free to all WDW resort guests.  Nightly, weather permitting, Bay Lake is the backdrop for the Electrical Water Pageant.  Dancing lights on a 1000 foot string of floating barges shimmer over Bay Lake.  This seven minute show can be seen from the Fort Wilderness beach and marina around 9:45 p.m.
