The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

At Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, it's time for the outdoor life, Disney style! Both parents and children alike will love staying in the very comfortable rustic-style cabins, surrounded by serene forest. Reminiscent of log dwellings from the pioneer days, special touches include vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and a private deck. Fishing, swimming, horseback riding, wagon rides, boating and cycling are just some of the exciting activities on offer. At night, gather round the campfire for a rousing sing-along, followed by a classic Disney film under the stars.

yes, its expensive. But its DISNEY! What else you expect? This is not your typical campground. It is an experience.

yes, its expensive. But its DISNEY! What else you expect? This is not your typical campground. It is an experience. We went for a week, and wish we had planned one day where we didn't have tickets to a park to just enjoy the campground. They have EVERYTHING. and I mean everything! Pools, horses, restaurants, bars...everything. Right there. You can rent a golf cart (which I highly recommend) or take the bus to other areas. There is a free boat right to the Magic Kingdom and you can see the fireworks from the castle everynight at the beach at the campground. There is boat rentals. There is a fantastic dog park. The sights are SUPER clean, have nice buffers of trees between sites, and I just can't say enough. We want to go back and just enjoy the campground! One night, we even took the free boat to the magic kingdom and back..(yes, they allow that!) Read less

My wife and I, and periodically other family members, have been guests of the Fort dozens of times since 2005. Many times, 3 or more visits a year. Our camper is a large truck/slide in camper so size is not a real issue. We are fans of the Preferred loops and have stayed in them all but 4 times. We like the convenience to the boats and Settlement.… Read more
My wife and I, and periodically other family members, have been guests of the Fort dozens of times since 2005. Many times, 3 or more visits a year. Our camper is a large truck/slide in camper so size is not a real issue. We are fans of the Preferred loops and have stayed in them all but 4 times. We like the convenience to the boats and Settlement. Two stays were in cabins when we had more family than our truck camper would hold and once in a Premium (1400 loop upgraded without our request) and one in a Full Hookup loop. Most all our visits were top notch, with only a few hiccups. While the Fort is not inexpensive, we feel it is generally a reasonable cost considering the amenities and general feel. We've done the Hoop Dee Doo Review Multiple times, and all the other shows. We did the backwoods Segway tour and normally take our bikes to ride around the park and see the sights. We especially like the decorations at Halloween and near Christmas. We always have some kind of decoration at our site. Overall, we are hooked on the Fort. As a matter of fact we have 3 more stays booked in 2020, as soon as things reopen. I have attached a photo of our campsite last October. Read less

We were excited to finally stay at the Fort Wilderness resort, and it far exceeded our hopes and expectations. We can't speak as to the dining or the activities as we were theme park bound during each day of our week-long visit and didn't partake in either, so this review is focused primarily on the accommodations and the transportation. The campground is meticulously groomed and absolutely beautiful, every square inch of it, and the comfort stations are sparkling and spotless. We rented an RV and were in the 300 loop which was ideally located close to the marina, yet far enough away to feel secluded in our lovely, shaded site. The nights were serenely quiet and every employee we encountered was quick to wave or share pleasantries with us. We had zero issues with transportation never waiting more than 5 minutes for park buses, and the boats traveling to the Magic Kingdom and back were consistent and fast and SO convenient, especially after the fireworks when the masses are jockeying to get on either the ferry or the monorail. Golf carts and/or bikes are a necessity to cover the enormous amount of ground from one end of the resort to the other. While we didn't utilize the internal buses, they were constantly on the move and from all observations efficiently and effectively working. We will happily return to Fort Wilderness and highly recommend this resort! Read less

The premium site we were assigned was less than stellar. The site was in a curve with a post, garbage can, and recycle container in the front of our space. Very difficult time backing in.

The premium site we were assigned was less than stellar. The site was in a curve with a post, garbage can, and recycle container in the front of our space. Very difficult time backing in. A neighbor came out and spotted the front while wife spotted the rear. The service connections were toward the front of the site and our access points are to the rear. Had to pull way up in the site for utilities to reach. Had to connect 20 ft sewage and the parks drain with our adapter was about 4 inches taller than our camper connection. Sewage does not run uphill very well!! The site certainly was not worth the near $500 we paid for 3 nights. We have been here before and had a great experience. This one was not so great. Read less
