Magic Kingdom Resort Area

Fort Wilderness resort grounds provide a 3.1-mile-long pathway that winds through the shaded area surrounding Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

This 1-mile pathway runs alongside the Seven Seas Lagoon connecting these two resorts. As a bonus, it passes Disney’s wedding pavilion and gives you a great view of Magic Kingdom Park.
