Horse Drawn Rides around Disney
At Fort Wilderness Resort you can take an old-fashioned, horse-drawn wagon ride which is a forty five minute scenic tour around Disney' s Fort Wilderness Resort. These rides depart at 7:00pm and 9:30pm nightly from the front of Pioneer Hall.
There are also Fireworks Wagon Rides at 8:30pm for the 9:00pm fireworks at the Magic Kingdom.
The prices are approximately $8. 00 for Adults $5. 00 for children. Children under 3 are free and all children 9 years and under must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations are not accepted seats are allocate3d on a first come basis.
If you prefer a Group wagon ride these are available throughout the year at Fort Wilderness. These can comprise of either 30 adults or a combination of 35 adults and children and will need to be pre booked
The Carriage Rides at Fort Wilderness are a lovely relaxing experience that takes twenty five minutes, small carriages holding 2 adults and a small child with the larger carriages holding 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 small children. The first ride is at 6pm with the last ride at 9:30pm departing from the front of Crockett' s Tavern at Pioneer Hall.
The price for a 25-minute ride is $45 (tax included) and I know that tickets are sold by the carriage drivers. However it may be possible to pre- book these.
There are also carriage rides at Disney' s Port Orleans Resort Riverside departing at the same times as Fort Wilderness and with similar carriages. The pick up for these is in front of Boatwright' s Dining Hall. The price is the same and tickets can also be bought from the carriage drivers but again I do not know if you can pre-book.
Those who like Halloween will like the Haunted Halloween Carriage Rides at Fort Wilderness. Reservations can be made 90 days in advance for ' haunted' carriage rides through the woods of Fort Wilderness and along the shore of Bay Lake. During the 25-minute ride you will experience the ' Legend of Sleepy Hollow' as told by your driver.
The rides take place during October and will depart every half hour between 7:30 and 10 p. m. from in front of Crockett' s Tavern. Each carriage holds up to four adults or two adults and three small children. Rides cost $60. Payment has to be made at time of booking and you are advised to arrive 15 minutes before your ride is due to take place.
Finally you can really get into the Christmas spirit with a Sleigh Rides at Disney' s Wilderness Lodge. These also can now be booked 90 days in advance and usually take place from the end of November until the end of December.
The sleigh rides are 25 minutes long and cost $60, for groups of up to four adults or three adults with two children. Rides depart from in front of Crockett' s Tavern every half hour between 5:30 and 10 p. m. , and end at the same place. You will be allowed to bring your own drinks on the ride.
You will enjoy all the rides they are a relaxing break at the end of a busy Disney day or at the start of a magical evening.
