We stopped by Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground yesterday to enjoy the campsite Halloween decorations and to go to Trail’s End for lunch. It is still almost two weeks until Halloween activities begin (when there will be a lot more campsite decorations, a Halloween Golf Cart Parade and more over a several day period), but it’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween!
Here are photos from yesterday.
Halloween decorations can be found at various campsites. The guests at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort always put a lot of effort into the various seasonal decorations, especially Halloween and Christmas. Later this month there will be a site decorating contest and it looks like some campsites are already ready for it!
The decorations are sometimes Disney themed, but not always. Mickey and Minnie are ready for the holiday here.
Some decorations are a little more spooky and there are always plenty of skeletons.
A giant Frankenstein is a great photo op.
A banjo playing skeleton sits on a table.
I like the Mickey candy corn decoration.
The Sanderson sisters appear as inflatables, surrounded by other decorations.
Two skeletons sitting in chairs are themed for Fort Wilderness, complete with a knock knock joke.
There are animated figures at some sites.
Pumpkins are the theme of this display.
The Sanderson sisters are here in a different form.
Oswald, Oogie Boogie and more “The Nightmare Before Christmas” characters appear in this display.
Not every site is decorated, but some sites have a lot!
Jack Skellington and “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is already a popular theme.
Jack Skellington sits alongside a lot of pumpkins and a Mickey candy corn decoration.
Oogie Boogie makes multiple appearances here, as does Jack.
The caretaker from The Haunted Mansion holds a shovel and is flanked by two gravestones, including Madame Leota.
We then went to Trail’s End, which we wrote about when it reopened in July. This has been a favorite location for both of us since the 1990s, even now that it is only a quick service location.
We picked up the half-slab barbecued ribs and 4-piece fried chicken meal so we could also take food home. This includes a full cornbread and two large sides.
There are some seasonal items right now as well. We had a full sized cornbread so we didn’t (yet) order the Cornbread Cupcake, but it sounds like it might be good. It has a maple-caramel icing and costs $5.79.
There is also a Spooky Mini Cookies and Dipping Cream – Halloween sugar cookies with dipping icing for $5.99.
We look forward to sharing more about Halloween at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground as we have for many years. The guests of the resort always pull out all the stops for the Halloween season.
