What To Know Before Spending Your RV Camping Trip At Disney World
Fort Wilderness Resort, Disney World's official campground, offers RV spots for camping and easy parking if you want to stay in a cabin or hotel room instead.
Fort Wilderness
You can get free park transportation if you stay on the property, and campsites at Fort Wilderness are frequently the cheapest accommodation option on the property.
Off-property campgrounds in Orlando, like Thousand Trails Orlando RV Resort, offer similar amenities to Fort Wilderness Resort but with a smaller price tag.
Several highly cost-effective options are available via state parks, like Moss Park, about 25 miles from Disney, and Lake Louisa State Park, roughly 13 miles away.
State Park
Parking at the four Walt Disney World theme parks in an RV is possible, but the oversized spots may fill up quickly, forcing you to park further away from the entrance.
Park Parking
Parking fees for the RVs are $35 per day — slightly higher than a standard vehicle — which is worth considering if you are staying off-site without free park transportation.
Disney World hotel guests get free parking at the hotels, but the parking lots weren't built with RVs in mind, so you may need to park further away from your room.
Hotel Parking
Each Walt Disney World hotel has a drop-off area, so after a long day at the parks, you can just drop off most of your party at the front of the hotel and park the RV.
