10 Amazingly Beautiful “Secret” Spots Around Disney World

Fort Wilderness Trails

4. Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground Beach and Trails

The forest awaits you at Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, beckoning you to put on your walking shoes and explore. The truly neat thing about this resort is that it seems so far removed from the often chaotic pace of the Disney Parks, when in actuality it’s a short boat ride away from Magic Kingdom. Among these tree-lined trails and paths is a cozy remoteness, tricking your mind into believing that you aren’t actually in the midst of one of the most visited tourist locations in the world. During the afternoon, the white sandy beach near the boat launch is typically incredibly quiet and void of people. The peaceful lapping of the beautiful Bay Lake is all you’ll need to slip into a deep state of relaxation (and lucky for you, there are plenty of lounge chairs available to do so). If being on your feet and exploring is more your “nature,” then head towards the trail that connects Fort Wilderness to Wilderness Lodge Resort. This paved path is woodsy and wonderfully secluded, except for the frolicking wildlife that naturally resides in the surrounding forest.  Photo credit
