Fort Wilderness Campground opened hot on the heels of Magic Kingdom on November 19th, 1971. It’s only fitting, then, that this resort was the first to get its own line of 50th Anniversary merch.
This resort is a fan-favorite, so it always has lots of resort-specific goods in stock. With the 50th, even more cool clothing and accessories have descended for fans to rep the best campground in Florida.
The Vault Collection Display
OK, before we get to the actual merch, we have to talk about the amazing display at The Meadow store. The Settlement also has a little display, but head to the Meadow area to take in this labor of love:
The Vault Collection is only the most sought-after component of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary merch. Check out more of the Vault Collection here for vintage-esque finds that will remind you of the days when it was under $5.00 to get into Magic Kingdom.
At Fort Wilderness, they have gone all-out with a display featuring an old television showing clips from 1971, and lots of canned goods from your favorite Disney characters!
Take Time to Read the Cans
Fort Wilderness Baked Beans, Polynesian Pineapple Cocktail, and Contemporary Soda…
Cinderella’s Pumpkin Puree, Flora’s Instant Cake, Chip’s Rosebud Tea, Ursula’s Shrimp Cocktail…
WED Enterprises (the original Imagineering department) chili (Walt loved chili!), Dumbo’s Peanuts and more.
We wish THESE cans were for sale. A lot of love went into this kitschy-cool display.
Love the suitcases, shoes, and old-fashioned Mickey Mouse emblem. Makes us want to take a time machine and see Magic Kingdom in 1971!
For Wilderness 50th Anniversary Merch
On to the actual merch! There are many more Fort Wilderness items available at the Settlement and Meadow shops, but here we’re just featuring the new 50th Anniversary items.
Fort Wilderness Water Bottle – $27.99
Fort Wilderness Sipper – $13.99
Great if you need a reusable sipper at the resort or the parks.
Fort Wilderness Grey Tee – $24.99
This material was very soft and thin, the kind of thing you might wear a camisole under.
Fort Wilderness S’mores Kids Shirt- $24.99
Why isn’t this in an adult size???
Fort Wilderness 50th Anniversary Pin- $12.99
Spare Tire Cover- $79.99
Available in small and large sizes. Fort Wilderness is the only place you’ll find this pretty unique piece of 50th merch due to all the RVs and heavy-duty vehicles that haul travel trailers.
Fort Wilderness Chip ‘n’ Dale Mug- $22.99
So cute, it looks like a lil stump.
Fort Wilderness Dog Dish- $18.99
Because your dog needs a matching thing to drink water out of. Looks just like the Chip ‘n’ Dale mug on the rim!
Fort Wilderness Long Sleeve Button-Up- $59.99
It’s got it all. An emblem on the front pocket area, a patch on the arm, and a big print on the back.
Fort Wilderness Hawaiian Shirt- $85.00
If you are a collector of the Disney Hawaiian shirts, this one is for you! It is the kind that has more of the synthetic feel rather than regular cotton.
Fort Wilderness 50th Anniversary Raglan Tee- $34.99
My fav kind of tee, here. Since you can’t feel it on the interwebs, I did for you. Very soft material, but enough to give a bit of warmth on a fall night!
Fort Wilderness 50th Anniversary Beach Towel- $29.99
This towel features acorns on the back, too!
Fort Wilderness 50th Camping Chair- $89.99
Another VERY unique piece of 50th merch, only available at Fort Wilderness Campground. It has pockets for holding all your gear and a mini table with a drink holder. A must-get for avid campers.
Fort Wilderness 50th All-Over Print Shirt- $34.95
Gotta be one of the cutest 50th selections. Ready for adventure, yet?
