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.

Maybe it’s better pre or post pandemic. We came for a weekend just to hang out at the camp and pool. Arrived at pool “sorry the pool is broken”. Tried to rent a golf cart “sold out.” Also the main dining area and show are still closed. I was also rudely accosted once at the campground and once at Disney Springs for not having a mask or using a… Read more
Maybe it’s better pre or post pandemic. We came for a weekend just to hang out at the camp and pool. Arrived at pool “sorry the pool is broken”. Tried to rent a golf cart “sold out.” Also the main dining area and show are still closed. I was also rudely accosted once at the campground and once at Disney Springs for not having a mask or using a neck gaiter as a mask. Now I’m not a crazy anti mask person but we were outside nowhere near any one and were very aggressively lectured by a Disney employee about needing to have a mask. Holy s**t they literally hired extra employees to police masks but can’t staff their restaurants. The campsites themselves are nice but keeping it in perspective for the 200 a night they were not significantly better than what you get for 30 at a state park. This campground was overpriced and under delivered. Will not be back. Not feeling the Disney Magic. Read less

I have stayed at Fort Wilderness many times over the past 40+ years. I remember coming here in the early 80s when I was a teenager. It was a magnificent place to stay. It has fallen to the wayside a little in my opinion, but it still remains a magically fun place to stay. All the sites are meticulously maintained. However, they have squeezed a lot more sites into each area. My biggest gripe about the sites are the WiFi. While they are head and shoulders above most other campgrounds, the WiFi can get real troublesome when it is raining or after the parks start closing. I know we don't come here for WiFi but some of us need to work to make the money to spend at WDW. I miss the old lawn mower that grew into the tree. I miss the old swimmin' hole. I miss Hoop-Dee-Doo. I miss breakfasts at the Trails End Buffet. Maybe it's just the the memory remembering the old days with a little extra Disney Magic. I hope the Magic returns soon and the Corporate side doesn't totally take away all of the Magic. Read less

Save your money and spend it at four seasons for the amount you pay here. $550/night for the tiniest camp site around. No Disney magic, no different than a $30/night campsite in the woods. You have to wear masks EVERYWHERE, which is understandable but my complaint is they literally hire tons of employees to be stationed around policing everyone.… Read more
Save your money and spend it at four seasons for the amount you pay here. $550/night for the tiniest camp site around. No Disney magic, no different than a $30/night campsite in the woods. You have to wear masks EVERYWHERE, which is understandable but my complaint is they literally hire tons of employees to be stationed around policing everyone. Yet they can't staff the restaurants/shops, you're always waiting in line because there's only 1 employee working. They have their priorities wrong. All they care about now is how little they can provide for a huge price tag. They don't give you any information upon check in. Everything is a guessing game. You can't get into the resort pool,, because guess what you have to put your name on a list. With no information yo plan ahead. All it was disappointment for my kids from start to finish.. The parks are a joke as well, same problem. Don't think about Disney until they figure their crap out during these times. Read less

We stayed in a 38 ft Motorhome with toad in two separate premium meadow campsites for a total of 13 days on two different visits in Jan/Feb 2021. The campground is very large with hundreds of sites spread out in loops. Our sites were paved and large enough for our MH and about 8-10 feet on the passenger side.

We stayed in a 38 ft Motorhome with toad in two separate premium meadow campsites for a total of 13 days on two different visits in Jan/Feb 2021. The campground is very large with hundreds of sites spread out in loops. Our sites were paved and large enough for our MH and about 8-10 feet on the passenger side. There’s a charcoal grill and picnic table at each site. Golf carts are everywhere, and are a great way to get around as there is VERY limited parking for cars, aside from on your own site, or in the overflow parking lots at the front of the campground. Masks were mandatory if going indoors, or driving a cart, and there were Disney employees at some intersections, to enforce the rules. Most people did not wear masks outdoors, and we all kept our distance with no complaints at all. Comfort stations are old but very well maintained, clean, painted, nice enough. Good hot water and lots of pressure in the showers. Coin laundry is available. Water and bus transportation is easy and free. Having camped at everything from parking lots to the highest rated Class A Resorts, this one still tops them all. The overall feeling, the privacy, wildlife, wooded setting and Disney cleanliness is nearly impossible to beat. Hands down we will stay again, and again. Read less
