Halloween at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Will Look Different This Year

UPDATE 10/25/20: According to Orlando Theme Park News, Walt Disney World has confirmed that Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will be under a strict phase 2 closure on October 31, 2020, which means that guests not staying overnight will not be allowed to access the resort.

They’ve also reported that Disney cast members are going to be checking MagicBands at the Disney Springs bus stops and theme park transportation areas prior to guests being allowed to board buses or boats headed to Fort Wilderness. Exceptions will be made for guests who have pony or horseback riding reservations.

Walt Disney World has announced some changes that will be taking place this Halloween at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

Based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), trick-or-treating at the campground is not permitted this year. All activities and gatherings should also be limited just to those guests in your travel party.

This year on Halloween, guests at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will still be able to participate in the golf cart and campsite decorating contests as well as a pet costume contest and pumpkin carving contest – with a few modifications. There will be a new pumpkin scavenger hunt for guests of all ages who will also be able to participate in decorating their own mini pumpkin.

If you’re planning to wear a Halloween costume, it’s important to remember that “a costume mask is never a substitute for a required face covering.”

Guests who would like more information on activities taking place at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground this Halloween are encouraged to stop by the Bike Barn in the Meadows Recreation Area once they arrive.
