Campsites: If your family enjoys camping, you can do that at the Walt Disney World Resort, too! You can bring a tent or your own camper (pop-up, fifth wheel, etc.) and enjoy your vacation there! You can choose from a tent or pop-up campsite, full hook up campsite, preferred campsite, or premium campsite depending on your needs.
