Each night at the Fort Wilderness Resort, families can enjoy a night of good old-fashioned fun for FREE! At 6:30 pm the campfires are lit and families can sit by the fire and roast marshmallows. You can bring marshmallows from home or purchase them at the Chuckwagon Snack Bar for $4 a bag and roasting sticks for $.59. You can also buy a s’mores kit for $8.99 and other snacks. At 7:00 pm a Sing-a-long starts where a cast member plays fun, kid friendly, family songs (think Hokey Pokey, If You’re Happy & You Know It, It’s a Small World, etc) and Chip and Dale make an appearance for photographs and hugs. At 7:40 pm the outdoor movie starts. Feel free to bring your own chair or use the benches or bleachers provided. Restrooms are close by and the snack bar stays open.
To get to the Fort Wilderness Outdoor Movie and Sing-a-long, you can drive, take a bus or a boat. Once at Fort Wilderness, take the Yellow Bus Line to the 1500 Stop (Meadow Trading Post and Recreation Area). Then cross the wooden bridge. The outdoor theater is past the swimming pool behind the pool building.
