Stayed at the FW cabins for two nights along with another family. Each had a cabin with children in the 2600 loop. As mentioned previously, these single wide trailers which have been covered with a facade of wood beams are very large relative to the Disney Hotels and have actually more amenities in the room than most. The cabins measure about 500 sq feet with separate bedroom. Living area has a murphy bed for addtional sleeping space. The cabins are tucked in among tall pines so all seem to be nicely shaded and well cared for. It is a long walk from most of the "loops" of cabins to the main eating and entertainment areas..this is a very large property and the golf cart was absolutely necessary for our families. Transportation to MK is easy by boat though other parks require a bus. The Hoopdedoo Review which is a dinner option at the FW is overpriced as most of Disney is as the entertainment was mediocre as was the food. Other food options will get tiring fast so you will need to cook your own in the kitchen or travel around the park for some variety. There is a grocery on site with most essentials.
All in all a nice change of pace from the other Disney properties where you can benefit from the Disney management without feeling immersed in Disney culture. Certainly a good value for families who don't mind traveling almost everywhere you need to go.

We just got back from a 4 night stay in the cabins at Ft. Wilderness May 21-24 and can happily report a terrific time. My wife and sons ages 5, 4, and 2 slept very comfortably in the well appointed and well decorated cabin in the 2600 loop. All the cabins are the same with some being closer to laundry facilities, bus stops, and pools than others. Ours was right across from a pool and a laundry stationand around the corner from a bus stop. This resort is 700+ acres and has a very efficient and convenient bus system to transport you from place to place. Many people rent golf carts available at the bike barn but these are about $95.00 per day. We chose to use the bus system and our bodies to get around and that was good enough. The cabins have full size oven, fridge, microwave, and all the cookware, plates, glasses, and utensils as well as daily maid service. We bought our groceries at a local Albertsons on Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando (They will pre-pack groceries for you from a faxed list and you can pick them up on the way in). Since we drove from Dallas, TX. this was a good option for us. We saved a ton of money by cooking all but two of our meals in our cabin. The resort has plenty to do without ever going to the theme park. There is horseback riding, petting farm, pony rides, fishing, boating of all kinds, swimming, nightly campfire sing-a-longs, outdoor movies, wagon rides...and more. Our boys ended up having plenty to do at the resort and we only spent one day at the Magic Kingdom. For their ages this worked perfectly. We were able to bring them back to the cabin for naps each day and they crashed from exhaustion each time. The cabins are sooo quiet and comfortable. It was like our own vacation home for a short while and the kids could be as noisy as they wanted to. Also there is a great beach at the resort where the fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom can be seen perfectly as well as a nightly electric water parade. These can be enjoyed in great style on a moonlit, cool sand beach while relaxing in lounge chairs. Most of the people are so preoccupied with being at the theme parks at closing time that they miss the perks of the resort. We shared the whole beach with maybe 20 other people. Watching our kids dancing in the sand during the light parade or sitting in awe during the fire works were the images that stuck with me. I cannot imagine a more perfect resort for families.

We stayed in one of the Wilderness Cabins and really enjoyed our time there. Granted these don't have the all amenities of all the other Disney hotels, but they more than make up for it in space, quiet and convenience. That said, who wants to spend lots of time with hundreds of other people at a hotel pool or whatever when you’re paying $$$/day for Disney park passes.

Anyway, we checked in the day prior to our first park excursion. I ran over to the grocery store in the Crossroads shopping center, bought fruit, breakfast fixings, and lots of bottled water. Since our kids are early risers, we ate breakfast at the cabin, ate lunch there too when we brought them back for a nap, and then ate dinner in the parks.

The cabins are huge by Disney accommodation standards. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen nicely equipped and being able to pull up to within 15 foot of your hotel door is priceless (think tired kids, lots of gear, etc and parking as closely as you would to your own house).

We drove our car to all of the parks except for Magic Kingdom (take the ferry, it’s worth it) and averaged 10-15 min from the door of the cabin to the shuttle at the park’s lot. On the subject of cars, the one downside is that you can’t really drive and park anywhere in the Wilderness area. This makes sense as they’re trying to cut down on road traffic and minimize parking areas, but it can be hassle. That said, the purple/orange busses run very regularly and you can get around to the stores and farm area.

Great place to stay!

Our family, 2 adults and four kids ages 4 through 12, spent 6 nights at the Fort Wilderness Campground and loved it. We were tent camping in the 2000 loop which we thought was a great location. Sites are large enough for 2 tents, which is what we had. There was not as much privacy between sites as we would have liked but it was not a problem at all. The comfort stations and laundry room were very clean. Renting a golf cart is a must since the campground is very large. Transportation to all parks could not have been easier. The restaurant and shops in the campground were very convenient. We would highly recommend Fort Wilderness.

We recently stayed at Ft. Wilderness with our 3 children--ages 8, 21 mos and 21 mos. What a great time we had. The cabin was excellent; a perfect haven after long days and evenings in the park. Having kitchen facilities for breakfast alone made it well worth having the cabin. We also made a few lunches and dinners here for the kids while taking a break from the parks. The staff was very helpful and accomodative. The only problem we had with staying here were the lack of dining options. With only one restaurant at Ft. Wilderness, Trails End, you will be a bit restricted in your dining. Trails End is a very well-run, tasty buffet--but we're not all big eaters. It was obvious that many people are able to take full advantage of this--we did not.

So why stay here?

--Easy transportation options
--Nightly outdoor movies and campfires(complete with Chip and Dale)
--Mickey's Backyard BBQ--best place to spend an ENTIRE evening dancing and singing with characters(kids loved it!)
--Tranquil and beautiful
--Not a bug to be seen
--Wonderful staff

If you want to go to WDW but not feel like you're always in a crowd, this is the place for you!
