We visited Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground yesterday for the annual golf cart parade. Disney’s Fort Wilderness Holiday Golf Cart Parade ran a little earlier than usual, at 2:30 p.m. The resort’s guests are always so creative! Here is a look in photos and video from yesterday, including photos of some resort and campsite decorations.
This is our video, which has most or all of the carts.
A horse and carriage carried the Family of the Day to lead off the parade. There were no characters, which I know I’ll be asked about.
The golf cart parade is shorter than at Halloween, but there were some fun entries including this gingerbread house. Guests staying at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground design most of the carts (there are some Cast Member carts too). We have talked with guests in the past who have spent months working on their carts.
Mickey lollipops were drawn on the sides.
There were a couple of Disney Cruise Line entries.
A number of the carts had more decorated backs than the fronts.
Mickey and Minnie sit atop this cart.
On the back, there is a Christmas tree.
This cart had a gingerbread house in the back.
If you don’t look back when the cart passes, you can miss some of the best decorations.
A Polar Express cart went by.
The Grinch is the theme of this cart.
I wasn’t expecting to see The Grinch at the back.
This cart had a Stormtrooper at the back of it.
Jack Skellington and Zero go by.
This cart was all about the snow. There were several carts with bubbles or snow blowers.
This is a Cast Member cart, it looks like a Fort Wilderness Railroad train inspiration.
Here is the side of the cart. The Fort Wilderness Railroad ended about 40 years ago, in 1980.
We also walked around some of the loops. It is always nice to check out the Christmas decorations.
Mickey and Minnie hold a wreath and stocking.
MagicBands are used creatively here.

The Hitchhiking Ghosts are a yearly tradition to see (Halloween and Christmas). They wear their Santa hats and Mickey ornaments.
Here are a few more photos of decorations.

We visited the Settlement for lunch. Here is a look at the Christmas tree.
The wreaths also are themed similarly.
Tri-Circle-D Ranch has decorations.
Horseshoes are in the wreath design.

It was a beautiful day for a few hours at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort!
We have been posting about Disney’s Fort Wilderness Golf Cart Parades for 10+ years now and it’s always fun to see what each year brings.
