I love staying at the Cabins! We had four adults, and the amount of space was perfect. We didn't stay long enough to even use the kitchen but it would have been handy to have if we were there for a week or so! The bathroom was big, which I loved, and the bed was comfy. The cabin was a bit dated and could use a touch of TLC, but it was totally fine, and this did not take away from its charm! We didn't make use of the pool (we were there 3 nights in early February, it was cool and rainy), but I'm sure that would have been nice.
What I didn't like was the transportation situation. I am 100% not averse to walking around the resort (last year we stayed at POR, where people often complain it's too big to walk, and I walked all over POR and POFQ with no problems!) and I would have done so here, but it was so spread out and not really conducive to walking. This would have been fine because we had a car, but I found that you couldn't really even use your car to get places on the resort! We tried to drive up to Trail's End for lunch only to have to turn around, go back to our cabin, park and take the bus. There is no parking at Trail's End, which is also the area with the stables, boat launch, other restaurants, etc. Also, no one told us this when we checked in! We just assumed we could drive and park at the restaurant, it wasn't until we tried that we found out we couldn't. We actually drove back to the reception to ask and found out, no there is no parking lot up there. Not the end of the world, but a bit annoying to have to take a bus to your breakfast or lunch. I wish we could have walked but by then we were pressed for time and our cabin was pretty far from the restaurant.
I also didn't like how to get to the parks you would have to get on a bus from your cabin and go to the Settlement Depot, then get off and get on a second bus to get to any of the parks. I think this is really inconvenient, but fortunately for us, we had a car and we just drove to most of the parks. We did not have a car last year, and relied solely on bus transportation, so if I had stayed here and had to take 2 buses out and 2 buses home I would have been annoyed. We did opt to take the boat to the Magic Kingdom, and it was the same thing. A bus to the boat launch, since you can't drive, or walk (depending on how far away your cabin is), and then boat to MK. It just seemed to make the journey quite long and tedious.
Other than the transportation, I really enjoyed the Cabins at Fort Wilderness. My lunch at Trail's End (the pulled pork sandwich) was AMAZING! Best pulled pork ever, if you go there you should definitely try it! (The service at this restaurant was incredibly slow however.) All in all, I would recommend this resort, as long as you know what you're getting into as far as transportation!
