Let's start with some pictures of Fort Wilderness...

|The dock where you can catch a boat to Magic Kingdom or the Contempory and Wilderness Lodge Resorts|
|Uh oh! Our view of the crowd as we approached the Magic Kingdom|
|First glimpse of the new Fantasyland|
|A peek at the construction of the Seven Dwarfs mine coaster. This will really make the New Fantasyland look cool!|
|The new Dumbo rides and play area|
|The play area inside the Dumbo tent|
|The girls spun me on the Tea Cups|
|Half the fun of Winnie the Pooh is the interactive line|
|The theming for the Little Mermaid ride is very nice. Much better than at Disneyland!|
|The Seven Drawfs rolloercoaster being constructed in the background|
|The village outside the Beast's Castle including Gaston's Tavern|
|La Fou's Brew didn't go over well, but the cinnamon roll did!|
|The new Be Our Guest restaurant. We didn't even take a peak inside. Look at that line for lunch!|
Max didn’t want to go on Haunted Mansion, so I took him and Zoe to get some fastpasses while the rest of them went on the ride.
Even though I read so much about Disney, I didn't know about the new interactive line at the Haunted Mansion. We almost skipped it as it split, but fortunately Jacob picked that side. It was pretty cool, especially since it was a surprise.
For dinner, we just grabbed some carry-out food from Trail's End. Then Kyrie stayed at the RV to do homework for her next conference while the kids and I went to the campfire show and movie. The campfire show was a lot of fun. I recommend it even if you are staying at a different Disney hotel. I’ve been to a couple of the ones at the other hotels and they just don’t compare at all. This one had Chip and Dale (which Zoe calls "babies"), and a musician, and plenty of sing-alongs and dancing and fun for the kids. We bought a bag of marshmallows for roasting and then soon it was time for the movie. It was Jungle-to-Jungle. I’m not sure if I ever saw it, but it was good. Eventually, it was starting to get too late for Zoe, Ella, and Max so we didn’t get to see the end. We’ll have to rent it sometime.
