Fort Wilderness 50th Anniversary Merch: The Vault Collection Goes Camping

by | Oct 20, 2021 | WDW Blog

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!

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!
