Chip n Dale Sing Along Repertoire at Ft Wilderness Campfire

Be enchanted with a sociable sing-along of well-known campfire songs and child-friendly favourites.

Be sure to bring along some marshmallows to roast over one of two campfire rings.

If you arrive empty handed, don’t worry.

You can always buy them there, along with all the necessary ingredients to make S’mores – marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate.

Chip and Dale Meet and Greet

Good ol’ Chip ‘n’ Dale meander through the campground during this family time.

They pose for pics, share cuddles, and sign autographs.

They’ll also lead the kids through group dance-offs like the Chicken Dance, and the Hokey Pokey. Be sure to wear your dancing shoes.

Handy hint: the characters will make their way to you.

There’s no need to push and shove to meet them. 

Cast members kindly ask that you simply patiently wait for your turn.
