Prior to the pandemic, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort offered campfires every night. Disney Parks Blog described this amenity as:

[…] Campfire activities (held nightly, weather permitting) can be enjoyed at many resort hotels.

Marshmallows and sticks are provided at all locations that host a campfire, except for Fort Wilderness, where you can bring your own or purchase a s’mores kit. It’s a great way to relax when the sun goes down after visiting the parks — a roarin’ good time in the great outdoors to gather ‘round and share stories and connect with your little (and not-so-little) ones.

For an extra-special treat when the unwinding winds down, the singing and dancing kick in (pun intended) near the Meadows Trading Post at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. The complimentary Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Campfire Sing-A-Long is a spirited campfire entertainment experience. And an ideal opportunity to interact with two of your favorite Disney characters plus a guitar-strummin’ cowboy.

And if that isn’t magical enough, you can snuggle up with those you care about most and take in a favorite Disney movie on a huge outdoor screen with Movies Under the Stars. Bring your own chair or blanket for these complimentary screenings of Disney films; some resort hotels even offer benches. Can you think of any better way to top off a magical day at Walt Disney World Resort? Yeah, didn’t think so.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, several amenities were temporarily suspended, including campfires at Disney’s Fort Wilderness. Now, as we continue to move forward, we can confirm that marshmallow roasting has returned to the hotel — and the best part is, this amenity is free!

TikTok user, @expedition_neverland, took to the social media platform to share a video of he and his family roasting s’mores at Disney’s Fort Wilderness, along with the caption:
