The Cabins at Fort Wilderness
Looking for a fun and new Disney experience? How about a stay at The Fort Wilderness Cabins! Located in the Magic Kingdom area of Walt Disney World, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground offers themed camping and cabins so you can enjoy the outdoors in Disney Style.
Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground originally opened on November 19th, 1971. It sits on 750 wooded acres giving the resort the feel of the great American frontier. Wildlife is plentiful as you will find ducks, deer, armadillo, rabbits and peacocks roaming the grounds. The resort offers the best of the great outdoors while giving the Disney experience you expect.
Camping is not for everyone, so the option of a Cabin that sleeps up to 6 can be great. Sitting at almost 504 square feet, the cabins offer plenty of space. The cabin contains a separate bedroom with bunk beds along with a full sized bed. The living room area has a pull out sofa along with a dining table and flat screen television. The cabin also contains a full sized bathroom and well-appointed kitchen. Daily housekeeping is included and the cast members do an amazing job.
Outside is a small porch with a private charcoal grill. There is parking for 1 car at the cabin and also room to park a golf cart for easy transportation around the resort. If having your vehicle close by is important to you, this is the resort for you! Dogs are welcome in select units and units are also available to accommodate guests with disabilities.
Speaking of transportation around the resort, it can be a bit of a challenge because the resort is so expansive. Depending on where your cabin is located, you could be a 30 minute walk to the Settlement where you will find entertainment and food options. Biking is a good option for some, and there are also multiple bus lines to the different areas of the resort. Your car may seem like an easy option, but it is not ideal due to parking restrictions throughout the resort. The best way around the resort is via golf cart. Rental carts are available for approximately $60 per day, or you can bring your own. Designated cart parking allows you to get closer to where you want to be and also means you won’t be waiting for an extra bus after a long day at the parks.
The bus systems in the resort are actually very good, and there is not another resort at Disney World that can get you off the beaten path like the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Plus there are great evening activities for the whole family like Chip 'N' Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long where you can enjoy live music and roast marshmallows over the fire before cozying in for an outdoor movie on the big screen!
