New Campsite Category Debuts at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground

A new category for campsites has popped up for Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.

In addition to seeing Premium, Preferred, Full Hook-Up, and a Tent/Pop-Up campsite you will now find the Premium Meadow Campsite category.

Fort Wilderness Campsite Categories

What’s new? The Premium Meadow Campsite promises “Proximity to Meadow Trading Post, Meadow Recreation Area, Bike Barn and Campfire Area”. This used to be a feature of the Premium Campsites, so it appears the new category will be closer to these amenities than some of the Premium Campsites will be in the future.

The Premium Meadow Campsites appear to run about $20 more per night than a Premium Campsite. For example, in late February the non-discounted Premium Campsite is $158/night, while the Premium Meadow Campsite is $178/night.

  1. $158-178/night? For a full hookup campsite? Does it come with a butler or free dining or something? I in no way see how this is worth double the cost of a “normal” campsite. Location might be nice, but double the price better? I knew it was only a matter of time before the last bastion of value at WDW got attacked. Ft Wilderness WILL be chipped away in the next decade as the new DVC encroaches on the property and WDW continues to realize that a better return of investment is dropping more cabins at $250/night versus the “lowly” campsites. I ensure you, this is just the beginning. High rent and maximum profits seem to be the only Disney magic left these days 🙁

    1. Gary, it looks like that category is already there. I’m assuming that as with most changes like this, existing reservations aren’t affected — it will only be in effect for reservations made from here on out.

  2. I think it depends on what loops they are. The 600 loop backs up to the meadow but it’s not very shaded, so I wouldn’t pay more. The 800 loop is next to the dog walking area. The 300 loop is near the dog park. I prefer the 900, 800, and700 loops and I hope those prices don’t change.

  3. Our preference is always the 400 loop, to be able to walk to the boat dock. Easy trip to Magic Kingdom, Wilderness Lodge, or the Contemporary.

  4. I hope this doesn’t affect my upcoming reservations. We are hoping for a site in the 800 loop next to the dog walk area.
