Golf Carts In Ft. Wilderness

For many years we rented a golf cart when we went to Ft. Wilderness. It was very nice to be able to casually drive around, and get places without having to worry about our car. You can only move around the Ft. Wilderness location. You cannot go outside, or anything like that.

I just read an article, and I would suspect that Disney is going to look at the ramifications, and maybe change their policies regrading personal golf carts.  I hope the little girl recovers ok.

Here is the article…

From Sentinel Staff Writer Bianca Prieto
A 4-year-old girl was seriously injured this weekend at Disney’s Fort Wilderness when a golf cart she was riding overturned, partially pinning her underneath.

The child was riding with her father in their personal golf cart around 10:30 p.m. Saturday when the cart overturned. The driver, Charles Wickt, 37, of Big Pine Key, told officers that he swerved to avoid another cart that was driving toward them without lights, Orange County Sheriff’s Office reports show.

When the cart turned over the girl was thrown from the passenger seat and pinned. She suffered injuries to her neck, head and face, reports show. She was flown to Arnold Palmer Hospital where she was rushed into surgery. She was listed in stable condition.

Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
