Dashing through the…woods…in a one-horse open sleigh! Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground offers a wintry experience to put any Guest in a festive spirit.
Now through the end of December, fire-engine red sleighs adorned with garland and holiday lights will take Guests through scenic trails in the Resort’s 700-acre backwoods. Since snow falls only on., at Walt Disney World, the sleighs are equipped with tires instead of runners for a smooth ride that is sure to be remembered.
Four adults or two adults and up to three children should fit comfortably in each sleigh. The 25-minute rides depart from the Blacksmith’s Shop inside Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Routes may vary but often carry riders over the river and through the woods…OK, not over the river, but certainly past many wonderfully decorated campsites and through beautiful scenery for a relaxing time with loved ones. Some campers return annually and have made it a sort of competition to see who can create the most magical display. If your driver offers you a choice, this is a fun option to request.
Holiday Sleigh Rides cost $60 per group to ride. Children ages 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Rides depart every half hour nightly between 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., and between 3:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Christmas Eve. Reservations can be made up to 90 days in advance and require credit card guarantee. If you need to cancel, do so 24 hours in advance to avoid paying the entire fee. Book the experience by calling 407-WDW-PLAY.
