I read something that made me remember something that I did with my family several years ago. It was a lot of fun and had a minimal cost - which nowadays we’re all looking for! I checked and it’s still going on, so I thought I would share this with you.
A friend had told us that they went over to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground and had a great time for free?!! So, looking for something different to do - we packed the kids and my visiting in-laws into the car and headed over. And what a great time we had! There were campfires set up for everyone to enjoy. We bought a couple of s’mores kits and roasted marshmallows over the campfire. We all enjoyed the yummy treats and just had a nice time.
I called Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground and was told it is still going on. It’s called the Campfire Singalong and it takes place every night. It’s open to anyone who would like to go and you don’t need to call ahead and make a reservation. They have a singalong that starts between 7pm and 8pm. Seating is on bleachers and benches or you can bring your own folding chairs or blankets. Chip and Dale join the fun and lead the kids in dances like the Chicken Dance and the Hokey Pokey. They pose for photos and sign autograph books too. And as if all this fun was not enough - a classic Disney movie is shown. And it’s all at no cost!!
So if you are looking for something different to do during your visit, no need to make a reservation, just head over to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campgrounds at the designated time. It takes place near the Meadows Trading Post. To get to the campground itself, you can either drive or take a boat over from the Magic Kingdom, Wilderness Lodge, Contemporary, Polynesian, and Grand Floridian Resorts.
