Escape to Walt's Wilderness overview

Escape to Walt's Wilderness - a new off-the-beaten-track tour is now available at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort.

The five hour, $109+tax tour takes guests on a journey through the wilderness and gives a taste of some of the activities on offer at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort.

The adventure begins at 8am with a pontoon boat tour from the Contemporary Resort boat dock. During the boat ride, the guide shares stories of Walt Disney and his passion for the outdoors and nature. Along the way, wildlife guides and binoculars help with the wildlife spotting.

On arrival at Fort Wilderness, a bonfire and camp-style breakfast awaits. The menu includes locally sourced citrus salad, egg frittata, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, granola, coffee and juice. And marshmallows for the campfire of course!

A wagon ride is next, where guests are transported in style to an archery lesson. A hike in the woods follows, with a stop at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch for a look at how the horses are cared for and their importance in the history of the Disney parks.

Escape to Walt's Wilderness is for ages 7 and over, and costs $109+tax. The tour is typically offered every Wednesday and Thursday, and complimentary transport is provided for Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests.

You can make your reservation at 407-WDW-PLAY.
