Camping at Fort Wilderness

Matty had his second Berkeley interview this morning, so while we went to that Andy loaded up his car and drove Davy out to Fort Wilderness at Disney World to get our camp site set up.  The Cub scouts go on two camping trips a year and this is the second one.  Andy set up our tent next to Garrett and Caiden, let the fun begin!

Our first outing was to the fishing pond.  There was a competition for the boys and a prize for whoever caught the biggest fish, well our boys didn’t catch anything and quickly decided that the pool was where they wanted to be.

This pool was perfect for the kids.  There was a larger pool with this large slide and then a smaller pool for the littler kids.  After the swim, the boys dried off and we went for a bike ride.  Our first stop was to the front of the campground to see the horses.  Matty loves the horses.  Next, we biked back over to the Meadows swimming pool.  Caiden was in an archery class, so the boys each got a Mickey ice-cream and posted up to watch him.  From the way their faces look, I’d say they liked them :).  From here we biked down to the marina.  Both boys wanted to go on a boat ride, so we hopped onto the shuttle for the Magic Kingdom and went for a ride. photo (4)photo (5)photo (8) photo (9)photo (10) photo (11)photo (13) photo (12)

 When we got back, the boys wanted to play at the playground, so I ran over to Crockett’s Tavern to grab Andy and I a beer. I picked for him one called Napa Smith, an organic IPA, and Andy said that he officially thinks that this is his new favorite beer.  For dinner back at the campground we had Jack Daniels BBQ pork sandwiches, baked beans, corn, apple sauce, and smore’s.

After dinner we headed over to Chip and Dales Campout.  The boys got to meet Chip and Dale, sing-a-long with the show and afterwards watch Toy Story 2, the movie under the stars.  Right before it ended we walked back down to the marina to get ready to watch the fireworks.  An employee told us to take the dirt path to the right and wander down until the opening that the view of the fireworks was much better than from the dock, and he was right.  We had a perfect, clear view of them.  I loved this moment.  We took the purple bus back to the camp ground and called it a night around 10:30.  It was a perfect family day.  🙂
