    I like your article great information here. Can you tell me what tent camping in the Fort Wilderness preferred loops versus Are the preferred loop sand tent pads large enough to accommodate a large family tent? Was wondering if you ever tried portable AC in a tent in Florida? Used one, here in Missouri humidity & while not best, it kept us comfortable enough to sleep at night with a fan.

      Thanks Saud!

      The Preferred sites are fine for one large tent–it’s the Premiums that are a problem. And no I have never tried a portable AC at Disney World. If you do, let me know how it goes!

    great info here. We had our popup in 1500 loop & loved it. Next Summer, my son & I are going to tent camp there, while the girls stay elsewhere for dance comp. Was wondering if you ever tried portable AC in a tent in Florida? Used one, here in Missouri humidity & while not best, it kept us comfortable enough to sleep at night with a fan.

      Hey Ray, thanks. I’ve never tried portable AC. My theory was that the tent walls would hold so little of the temp/humidity difference that it would not make much impact. But since you were successful in Missouri–and are going in the summer!!!–it seems like a fine idea.

    Hello! We thought it would be fun for our family of 7 to be close to the water and the Settlement. Can you tell me what your thoughts are on tent camping in the Fort Wilderness preferred loops versus the tent/pop-up loops? Are the preferred loop sand tent pads large enough to accommodate a large family tent?

      Hey DOn, the tent pads there are smaller, but still fine for a single very large tent! You will be in a sea of rumbling RVs. These loops also book up quite quickly so don’t dawdle!
