This is the 6th year we’ve posted about Disney’s Fort Wilderness Halloween Golf Cart Parade (as well as other seasonal golf cart parades). It is one of our favorite events of the Halloween season, because it brings out the creativity of guests staying at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground. We posted yesterday about the Fort Wilderness Pet Costume Parade and other events from Halloween eve.
This is the busiest Halloween I can recall at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground, with chairs lining the parade route many hours early. The area we usually stand for the parade (and it has always been pretty empty) was extremely busy, so we chose a new location. There still was plenty of room along the route, it would be hard to fill it all up with guests.
Before checking out our photos, here is the video of the entire parade – all the carts. I’m posting many carts, but not nearly all of them. I was told there were 140 this year, I’m not sure if that is correct – but it was the longest golf cart parade I’ve ever seen.
Last year, Woody and Jessie were in carts to kick off the parade. Woody was by himself this year.
Woody waves to the crowds.
I had a couple of comments on my Instagram account about non-Disney entries. This is a Halloween parade. There are so many themes, Disney and non-Disney.
This theme is a cabin at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground.
Spiders can be seen on many carts.
A New Orleans cart is up next.
Stitch is everywhere on this one!
Star Wars was a big theme this year, with several carts entered.
Darth Vader is also on the back.

This was another favorite, a Disney bus.

And one of the overall favorites was this imposing Millenium Falcon. The family had entered the Pet Parade the previous day in the same costumes, and didn’t disappoint with this cart.
Darth Vader waves to the crowds.
It is interesting to see each year what will be the most popular theme. Star Wars was certainly one of the most popular! Each of the Star Wars themed carts was really well done.
That is the end of our coverage for the 2015 Fort Wilderness Golf Cart Parade! We usually stay a little longer and photograph in other locations, but we had to leave for an event. Enjoy the video to see all of the carts.
