    Can you ride your golf cart to any of the parks? Or have to drive your car?

    We used golf cart all around camp ground. You can drive on all roads etc in camp ground. They also have golf cart parking areas where you take a bus or boat to the parks. We just left cart there with the other hundred or so carts.

    Please explain this to me. I don't get it, but I see it all the time. You'll see some guy in a pickemup truck towing a 40ft 5th wheel, then the 5er has a little cart attached on the back with a golf cart in it. Or he's pulling a tag camper, and the golf cart is in the bed of the truck.

    Maybe some people are old, need a knee replacement or something, but what is everybody else doing with their golf carts? Where do they go? Why don't they walk or ride a bike? The KOA at the beach was full of golf carts, but the entire campground is the size of my front yard. For a little battery-powered car, golf carts are expensive. It's $600 in batteries alone. What's the story there?

    The ladies like the golf carts. It's like a Harley, but not really. Ha!

    The guys with the carts are compensating for something. I don't have a golf cart.

    That's a shame. If you had one, I'd ask how much tail it pulls.

    if you ever go to Disney and stay at there campground you will be begging to use my golf cart:)

    the camp ground is HUGE and there is no good place to park your full size truck or car except at your campsite. Disney will rent you a cart at a very high price if you want or you can bring your own. yes you can walk or ride a bike from your campsite to the main area where pool is located or main snack shack.. but if you want to go to boat dock and take boat to magic kingdom, or take bus to Epcot/animal kingdom etc it is a very long walk or bike ride. the other option is they have bus stops around the campground to get you to the boat or bus locations. So you could wait at a stop and ride to another stop etc.. but the golf cart was way more convenient and faster to get around especially with kids in tow.

    this picture shows the campground: Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground map - wdwinfo.com

    as for pulling more tail my wife said Yes I do get more because I have a golf cart :flipoff2:

    Some of the most fun I have at the campground at the beach is riding around on the golf cart. Nothing like cruising around checking out all the campers and tow rigs.

    Bruiser: you said your wife doesn't drive the bus. Is that can and wolnt or can't. If it's the latter that's a dangerous prospect I.E. you get sick. When I go out on my boat I try to have someone out with me that can dock and trailer the boat incase I get hurt or sick.

    It is located on 401 past garner. They have a charter bus company and a repair shop. They do everything from small stuff to even painting buses and trucks.

    I will get you the name later on.

    Good news is she can drive it. As if something happened she could drive it down the road. She just is not comfortable behind the seat of such a big bus.

    So the answer is she can and won't unless emergency:)
