VIDEO: The BEST Disney Ride

Posted In: Disney, Uncategorized, Video

A friend of mine recently took his two children (ages 8 and 12) for a stay at Walt Disney World’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. This wasn’t their first family vacation at Disney’s RV Mecca. In fact, they went last year. But here’s the amazing part…

What’s amazing is not that the kids begged for a return to the Land of Mickey. Rather, it’s that upon arrival, they begged NOT to leave the campground! Their parents happily agreed, enjoying a family vacation at Disney World without once entering the theme parks.

Fort Wilderness is one of the best managed campgrounds you’ll ever visit. It’s spotless, boasting asphalt clean enough for fine dining. There’s also a surprising amount of privacy here. Credit must go to the original designers who laid out the campsites with great foresight, and then followed through with lush landscaping. In fact, I daresay the campground design is superior to what we saw inside some of our national parks. Fort Wilderness makes Yellowstone’s Fishing Bridge seem like a Wal-Mart parking lot.

And yet, from any campsite, a myriad of activities are a short bike ride away. There are any number of things to do at Fort Wilderness that extend beyond the scope of today’s video. You can rent boats, kayaks, play tennis, parasail, horseshoes, shuffleboard, fish, or take a carriage ride.

There are a couple of restaurants on the property, at least one of which includes a large stuffed grizzly bear. There’s also the option of after dinner entertainment with Mickey’s seal of approval (the so-called Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue).

A few years ago, if you’d asked me to name the best ride at Walt Disney World, I probably would’ve chosen amongst several favorites. While you can make a strong case for an old school ride like Pirates of the Caribbean, one of the newcomers like the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster probably would’ve been my choice.

But after our recent stay at Fort Wilderness, I have to side with my friend’s children. The best ride at Disney World is people powered … and it has two wheels.
