Free Camp Fire Sing-A-Long with Chip and Dale
at the
Walt Disney World Fort Wilderness Campground





There is a free Campfire Sing-Along with Chip & Dale at the WDW Fort Wilderness Campground.  It generally begins around 7 p.m. during the fall/winter season and 8 p.m. beginning sometime in April through the summer. It is held near the Meadow Trading Post in the campfire area. The program begins with a sing-along led by a Disney cast member - if you've seen "Barney", you know these songs - and a marshmallow roast around two campfire rings. While this is going on, Chip and Dale make an appearance to visit with guests and sign autographs. The sing-along lasts about 40 minutes.



After the sing-along , aDisney movie is shown on a large outdoor screen.Seating is available in bleachers or on benches. There is also plenty of room to lay out a blanket or set up your own camp chairs. We try to post all of the resort movie schedules on our website at the beginning of the month. The current movie schedule is posted at all comfort stations. In the event of rain, the sing-along is still held on the porch of the Meadow Trading Post.



You may bring your own marshmallows or buy them at the Chuckwagon Snack Bar (roasting sticks - $0.49 each, Marshmallow Bag -$3.99, Hershey's Chocolate Bars - $1.99 each, or a whole s'mores kit is around $8.99; prices accurate as of May 2010). You may also buy pizza, hot dogs, candy, nachos, juice, popcorn, sodas, coffee, beer and other refreshments at the Chuckwagon Snack Bar.



The campground also has a free petting zoo and pony rides (about $5 each) that close earlier in the afternoon.  These are in the "Settlement Trading Post" area - take the Ft. Wilderness internal bus.  The Trail's End Restaurant is considered one of WDW's best buffet values.  The Trail's End also has a carry-out window called “Trails-To-Go” 16-inch pizzas and fried chicken meals – both individually sized and family sized.  If you have a free day (or your arrival day), you can go early and see the petting zoo, have a nice dinner, and then head over to the Sing-Along.

We recommend this to every one going to Disneyworld with young kids because we enjoy it so much.  It is one of Disney's least expensive Character Meet and Greet experiences and a great low-key activity when you find yourself a little over-stimulated from the theme parks.

FAQ: 

Do you have to stay at the Campground to go to Chip and Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long? 

  • No, the campfire sing-along and outdoor movie are available to all Disney Guests.



How do I get to the Campground?

  • You can take a bus from your resort to the nearest Disney theme park, water park, or Downtown Disney.  Then catch the bus there to the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.  You can also take a boat from the Disney's Magic Kingdom theme park.  The campground has its own internal bus system. You need to take the Yellow Loop bus to the camp loop 1500 Bus Stop. This is the stop for the "Meadow Trading Post" Recreation Area. If you are unsure, just ask the bus drivers; they are very friendly and helpful. Across the street from the bus stop, you'll see a wooden foot bridge and a sign for the Meadow Recreation Area clearly directing you to the Camp Fire Program. You'll pass the volleyball court. When you arrive at the swimming pool, take the path right around the pool and behind the pool building. At this point you will cross over to the Chip and Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long area. You will see the sign, stage, seating area, screen and the conastoga wagon snackbar. It sounds like a lot of steps, but it is actually a fairly short walk.
