A new building is under construction at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, next to Pioneer Hall at the former site of Tri-Circle-D Ranch. It’s coming together quickly and more roofing has been installed since our last update.

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is a camping ground at Walt Disney World Resort that officially opened in November 1971, just over a month after Magic Kingdom.

Fort Wilderness is located near Wilderness Lodge, right next to Bay Lake. Both were once convenient resorts for guests hoping to visit Disney’s River Country, but the water park closed over 20 years ago and never reopened.

Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney’s Fort Wilderness is where the horses of Walt Disney World are cared for. Guests can enjoy pony rides (available on a walk-in basis) and trail rides (which are bookable online). A newborn Shetland pony at Tri-Circle-D Ranch was recently named.

Fort Wilderness is home to the famous “Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue” in Pioneer Hall. The quintessential dining experience has been a fixture of Walt Disney World since 1974. Live performers sing and dance in a Wild West stage show. Between skits, guests can enjoy fried chicken, smoked BBQ pork ribs, tossed green salad, baked beans, fresh-baked cornbread, and strawberry shortcake. Watch our video of the full show below.
