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.

The actual trip was amazing all of the parks were great from the no waiting for rides and all the employees went out of there way to make sure you had a great time. Fort Wildnerness/Cabins which was not our choice but Disney's due to our original resort was not open (Port Orleans) was a little disappointing. 1st if you are staying there a golf cart at $67 a day is a must. We rented one the first 3 days and not the last 2 and that was a huge mistake. This resort is massive and the buses that run within the resort don't seem like they are on any type of time schedule. We went from 10 minute waits all the way to 45 minutes. On our last morning when we were supposed to catch the Magical Express we waited at a stop for 45 minutes which led to us missing the Magical Express. It was way too far for us to walk with our luggage and when we attempted to contact the front desk there was no answer. We did get in touch with someone from Disney reservations and they ended hooking us up with a cab to the airport. During that time it was very stressful with no where to turn within the resort to help us, which included flagging down cleaning staff members who told us the bus will be by shortly. The prices at the 3 trade stores are astronomical so be prepared for that. The actual cabin was very nice it just did not feel like a Disney experience from when you stay at the resort hotels. That option was not given to us as we did not even find out where we were staying until a week before we left for this trip which had been postponed twice already due to Covid 19. Overall I couldn't be happier about my time at the parks, Disney Springs and the restaurants where we ate. The actual resort was a bit of a disappointment unless I was there with a RV or 5th wheel. If you do stay here rent a golf cart for your entire trip makes things a lot easier. Read less

We had booked our reservation to camp at Disney's Fort Wilderness prior to the shut-down. We were so very happy to learn they had reopened the location for our late July visit. Some things were a little different, but the Fort is just as amazing as ever. Many loops are closed, and most tents were on Spanish Moss. The site was clean, spacious.… Read more
We had booked our reservation to camp at Disney's Fort Wilderness prior to the shut-down. We were so very happy to learn they had reopened the location for our late July visit. Some things were a little different, but the Fort is just as amazing as ever. Many loops are closed, and most tents were on Spanish Moss. The site was clean, spacious. well wooded and just a few steps to either of the two restroom facilities within the loop. The Meadows pool, jacuzzi tub and slide were all open. The snack bar there was available from 11am to 5pm. We were able to get lounge chairs and a table each time we visited the pool. They are not presenting the daily pool games but they do have a great music playing out on the deck. There is an army of cast members constantly disinfecting, wiping down and scrubbing every imaginable surface. While on the pool deck and in the pool masks are optional. Once you leave the pool you must have your mask on. The movies under the stars are running 4 nights a week, At the time of our visit they were not yet lighting the bonfires for smores and the singalong portion was not taking place. The old barn has been replaced with a new barn. This facility is so absolutely beautiful it took our breath away. The engineering and design are beyond compare. Each time we visited there were a few Percheron or Clydesdale horses in the visiting area. These animals were such beauties and so interesting to watch. We spoke to several cast members who were working in the barn and it was easy to see they each felt like they had the very very best job at Disney. Lucky them! We did visit P&J in the Trails End building. We picked up an 8 piece fried chicken meal. You could take it to go or sit and dine. The chicken was fried after we ordered it and came finger-burning hot like it is supposed to! Delicious! The only sad part about a stay at the Fort is leaving. We would absolutely recommend this location to anyone looking to spend a few nights enjoying the outdoor lifestyle. Read less

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!

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
