Fort Wilderness Campfire Movie Schedule

Join Chip and Dale just behind the Bike Barn for a campfire sing-along followed by a classic Disney movie. Admission is free and open to all Disney guests whether staying at Fort Wilderness or not. An entertainer leads the sing-along that includes dances such as the Hokey-Pokey and the Chicken Dance. Chip and Dale will then visit with guests and sign autographs. After a sing-along, the Disney movie is shown on a large outdoor screen. Both bleacher and bench seating are available, as well as restrooms. Guests may want to consider bringing along a cushion or pillow to sit on. This is a wonderful experience for younger children!

Children can roast marshmallows, hot dogs or just about anything around one of two campfires. Marshmallow roasting supplies are available for purchase at the Chuckwagon Snack Bar, along with other snacks, such as Smores Kit ($9.99), hot dogs, candy, nachos with cheese, popcorn, cotton candy, sodas, coffee and beer. Marshmallows cost $4.99/bag and a roasting stick runs $0.59 - each may be purchased with a snack credit for the Disney Dining plan. You can also bring along your own snacks or marshmallow roasting supplies.

For April, 2014, Fort Wilderness has another great lineup of outdoor movies. The campfire is lit at 7:30 pm, Sing-a-long starts at 8:00 pm, and the movie starts at 8:40 pm. Times will vary depending on the season, and the times for the current month are always posted here.

As always, double check the times with a cast member when you get to WDW. In the event of bad weather, a "Porch Jam" sing-a-long is "usually" held on the porch of the Meadow Trading Post if the movie is cancelled. Consult our weather page for additional info.

Directions: Whether you drive, take a boat from the Magic Kingdom or Contemporary Resort or take a bus from the Wilderness Lodge, you'll need to catch the Orange bus line once you arrive at Fort Wilderness. Take the bus to the 1500 stop (Meadow Trading Post & Recreation area). From there, cross the wooden bridge. You'll find the outdoor theater that hosts the campfire past the volleyball court and swimming pool, located behind the pool building.

Outdoor Movies at Other Disney Resorts: In addition to the Campfire movies shown at Fort Wilderness, Disney movies are featured nightly in the beach or pool areas of ALL Walt Disney World resorts. Movies are shown on a blow-up screen at most resorts, although a few do have a large permanent screen. A few will also include a campfire. Sticks, marshmallows, and sometimes even S'mores fixin's are are often available for free at resorts that feature a campfire. The front desk at individual resorts can provide a list of movies, dates and times or visit our Movies Under the Stars page and click on the "Activities Calendar" link for a list of movies playing at each resort for the current month. Typically, the Fort Wilderness Campground movie is the only one to feature a visit by Disney characters, a sing-a-long, and elaborate western theming.
