Personal Campfires?

Wow, what a Fantastic find on the World Wide Web. This is a Great Site. We Camp at Fort Wilderness every December, and now we've added a Week in the summer.
With our December trip coming up, we wanted to bring our Fire Pit for our own little campfire when the kids got off to Bed! Are these allowed?

Thx.....

Fully enclosed portable fire pits are allowed unless there is a fire ban in effect due to dry conditions.

Unless I am wrong, I think there are firepits at each campsite. I seem to remember using them for something or other (than a fire).

Enjoy!

The only thing at the campsites is a grill which is not supposed to be used for a campfire.

Welcome to the DIS Camping Board!!

No, there are no fire pits already at the campsites, because there are no ground fires allowed.

Unless there's a fire ban because of dry weather, you are allowed to use your own portable fire pit, if it's fully enclosed with a screen & cover. Like the one in this picture:

So Rhonda is back to her old tricks of lurking around Dis camper board members sheds. Back to rehab with her.

What's so funny? This is a serious stalking issue here. How did Rhonda manage to get a recent picture of my shed without my knowledge?
