Try out archery, canoeing, horseback riding, or singing around the campfire with Chip’ n’ Dale. Let the kids slide down a waterslide over and over again while you relax by the pool! Then, spend an evening at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue or Trail’s End Restaurant buffet.

“Camp amid the magic of the great outdoors,” Walt Disney World Resort writes. “Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground evokes the timeless beauty of the American frontier, with deer, rabbits, ducks and armadillos roaming the Resort’s 750 acres of pine and cypress forest. Discover charming woodland trails, spectacular pool areas and rip-roarin’ entertainment at this picturesque backcountry retreat.”

“With a windshield, headlights and seating for 4 people, your golf cart is a great way to get around, day or night,” Disney writes. “Equipped with windshields and headlights for night driving, rentals are available to Guests 18 years of age and up with a valid driver license. Drivers must be 16 years of age and up with a valid driver license, and all drivers must have their license on them when operating the cart.”

TikToker @secondcitypainting stayed at The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort during Halloween. On TikTok, the guest shared a video of himself scaring his nieces by driving the golf cart right up to them at top speed:

In the video, the girls scream as the vehicle speeds toward them. They calm down after it stops and realize their uncle is driving. Not overly concerned, most of the adults present laughed at the prank.

“Get him a DUI,” one man quipped.

“I had to set the Halloween mood,” the guest joked.
