Campsites at Fort Wilderness

Can anybody tell me the difference between the different campsites that they offer at Fort Wilderness? They have Tent/Pop-up, Full Hook-up, Preferred, and Premium. When I look at the photo albums they have for the campsites they look almost the same.


Follow along on our adventure as we make the move for a great life, and move to Orlando!

From AllEars:

The Premium Site is billed as "big-rig" friendly. They accommodate RVs larger than 45 feet in length and those that have multiple slide outs. The sites are wider (up to 24 ft), and deeper (up to 60 ft) meaning they have a larger, level-paved pad. They also feature all of the amenities - water, power, sewer, cable, and access to the high-speed Internet, plus upgraded picnic tables and grills as well as prime locations.

To Disney, preferred sites means those that are located near the Settlement Trading Post, Pioneer Hall, Meadows and marina areas (meaning the preferred/in demand areas). Preferred Campsites include: water, power, sewer, cable. Internet Access is free. There will be a $125 deposit hold on credit card. Once kit is returned the hold will be released). Campsite sizes vary in length and width and some can accommodate equipment up to 10' X 60'.

Full Hookup=Electric + Water + Sewer

Tent/Pop-Up=Partial Hookup (no sewer)

Hope this helps!
