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.

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. 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… Read more
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

We had a great week in Orlando at Fort Wilderness. Check-in was super easy and our campsite (for a pop-up) had plenty of space and a nice location relative to the bathhouse. The campground was extremely convenient to all the Disney attractions. Free parking at the Disney Parks was also a big plus. The ferry direct to Magic Kingdom was extremely convenient -- way faster than ferrying/monorail from the ticket and transportation center The Chip and Dale sing-along and movie was also a lot of fun. The only downside of the campground is its size -- it's big. The internal campground buses were unreliable and usually full -- it was usually faster to walk up to a mile plus in some situations. The buses to the parks were ok if you got there and didn't have a long wait time. We much preferred using our car to get to the parks instead of Disney transportation. Overall, a good campground and we'd stay there again. If you go, be sure to pay extra and rent the golf cart to get around... We will if we go again. Read less

Fort Wilderness is such a nice place to stay on DIsney property! First off its cheaper than most other disney resorts and if you have fur babies its the only one you can take them. They have alot of cool amenities, they have an awesome sing along with chip and dale and a disney movie every night. They have a super nice pool. I recommend bringing your own golf cart so you can get around its much cheaper than renting one. You have access to the boat which will take you to the Magic Kingdom or you can go to the Contemporary resort where you can ride the monarail which is my favorite. Read less
