“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

We have 2 teenage children and wanted more than the hotel/motel experience. We have camping experience, so the thought of a "cabin" didn't concern us. The cabin was clean and well kept, yet still had a rustic, "camping" feel to it. The cabin was not "buggy" at all! We were amazed that there were no spiders or spider webs visible on the outside deck.
We stayed in the 2400 circle. We rented a golf cart for the week and highly recommend it. We did not cook at the cabin at all. The campground is very peaceful, and quiet. The cleaning crew was a bit rude, but everyone else was Disney quality.

Room Tip: A cabin close to the Meadows would probably be most convenient.

SIx of us (Me and my husband, our two kids (ages 2 and 4), and my parents) stayed at a cabin at Fort Wilderness for a Disney trip in early March. We love For Wilderness and had a great vacation! The cabin slept 6 comfortably (double bed and bunk in the bedroom, plus a murphy bed in the living area), had a full kitchen, deck with picnic table, and charcoal grill. We used the kitchen and grill daily for our midday meals during breaks from the Parks. We ended up only getting the cabin cleaned on two of our six days, not because housekeeping wasn't coming by, but they were only coming by in the middle of the day after we had already returned from the parks for a break and our kids were napping. (The cabins were otherwise very clean, but my four year old did find a very old, very disgusting piece of meat under the couch.) I would highly recommend a golf cart, which adds about $60 daily to the price of your stay. It helps with transportation so you don't have to catch a bus to get on another bus (or boat) to get to the parks, and most of the cabins are also far away from the Meadows area, where the big pool is along with the nighttime campfire and movie activities. There is a smaller, quieter pool near the cabins which my kids were very happy with. There are lots of activities to do at the campground when not visiting the Parks (pool with waterslide (with extremely attentive lifeguards), toddler/preschool pool area with shallow water, slides,and waterfalls, playgrounds throughout the campground, basketball, horesback riding, boat rentals, bike rentals, etc.).
Overall, we had a wonderfull time here and would definitely consider Fort Wilderness again for another Disney vacation!

We have stayed at Fort Wilderness many times and it will remain on our list of vacation favorites. It is the most economical way to stay on Disney property and, unlike the value resorts, there is a waterslide in the pool & a hot tub. Every camping loop has a giant comfort station with showers,bathrooms, ice machines & a laundry area. The sites are well groomed with level pads for your tent or camper. As with any other Disney resort there are many transportation options available for free.

Room Tip: Take a look at a campground map to help determine which loop you'd like to request (I.e. close t...

My family and friends recently stayed at the cabins at Fort Wilderness. We had a great time. The reservation staff was very accommodating. They took care of any issues very promptly and thoroughly. The cabin itself, was very clean and well maintained every day. There was enough room for 6 of us. 2 adults, 3 teen, and 1 preteen.

We stayed in a cabin on loop 2600, loved the location! Close to the "quiet" pool and the Reception Outpost. We cooked all our meals inside the cabin. Full kitchen with all the gadgets. Had a DVD player and enjoyed watching movies.
In the bedroom 1-double bed, it was comfie, and a set of bunks,the living room had a murphy bed, also comfie. The cabin is just adorable a little home away from home.
We rented a golf cart to zoom around the resort, that was a blast! It was the highlight to my 12 year old g-daughters trip.
Nice, reasonable priced General Stores that even offer delivery. Dinner buffet at Trails End was family friendly, decent food and priced right,
Of course, there are buses to all of the Disney attractions and a boat direct to the Magic Kingdom.
You cannot go wrong with this Family Fun Resort! We are going back!

Room Tip: We loved the 2600 loop,by the "quiet pool"

We reserved and paid deposits in August for this family gathering during Thanksgiving weekend to attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Our family is a frequent Walt Disney World/ Fort Wilderness family. We were at Disney World with one child on opening week in 1972 and started coming to the campground as soon as it opened. We requested cabins, 3 of them, in the 2100 loop near the meadows. SURPRISE!! Our cabins were in the center of 2800, far from the bus stop and ANY recreation which we so enjoy. The sofa was grimy, several things had to be replaced during our stay..

We just returned from a weekend camping at Disney's Fort Wilderness campground with our children (ages 6 & 9). It was exactly what I would expect from camping at Disney World. The customer service is exceptional. The facilities are clean and well maintained and there is no shortage of activities for families. We were tent camping, so we were given a spot that had plenty of room for two family-size tents, one minivan, one pickup truck, and two golf carts. The kids had a blast riding around on the golf carts, swimming in the pools, and playing on the playgrounds.

All that being said, I would not recommend Ft. Wilderness to anyone looking to experience nature of have a quiet weekend hiking or bird watching. The buses ran all night and they camp sites are close enough to hear everyone around you. For me, it's about expectation. If you want the Disney experience in a tent, camper, or cabin, then this is a great choice. If you want quiet, nature, hiking, bird watching, etc., I would recommend looking elsewhere.

Overall, we had a great experience and my kids had a blast.
