I stayed in the Fort Wilderness Cabins this past March. I have to admit I wasn't excited to stay at the Cabins at first. When I think Disney I automatically go to the luxury of a resort such as Port Orleans Riverside or Wilderness Lodge. Cabins in the woods is something I love but for Fishing trips and not for Disney trips.
BOY WAS I WRONG.
The Cabins are AMAZING. Not only are they private, clean and beautiful but they have so much space. We were traveling as a family of 5, 4 adults and 1 child. We had a queen size bed and buck bed in the bedroom area. The beds are near each other but not as close as you would think they would need to be. My daughter loved that she had two beds to pick from and used them both while there. My husband and I slept in the queen size bed and slept like babies every night. My in laws wanted the pull out in the living room area. They said it was better then their bed at home.
The kitchen is outstanding. Full kitchen which really came in handy in the mornings. We never used the grill but loved that we had it if we wanted it. We also loved the picnic table as we used it nightly to watch the flying squirrels go from tree to tree. We drove so the added bonus of parking right in front of our cabin was fantastic.
This resort is huge in size as it has cabins, tents and rv camping. It also has a beach area that you can watch the nightly Electrical Water Pageant from. Because of it's size the resort has it's own bus system to get you around and it is wonderful for getting from pool to cabins. AND THE HORSES! You can go Horse back riding while there. AMAZING.
As you can tell I could talk forever about our stay. Have you stayed there? What did you think?
We loved our stay at the Fort Wilderness Cabins too! The cabin was a great fit for my family of 4, plus my mom. Water taxis are our favorite mode of transportation at Disney World so the ride to Magic Kingdom (or Contemporary Resort for breakfast at Chef Mickey's) was definitely a highlight!

We chose this resort in 2015. My boys were 7 and 2 and my husband's biggest concern was our boys being too loud for our neighbors. We love the outdoors and camping and the woods so we gave it a go despite the fact that we read many bad reviews, especially concerning Disney's transportation. We absolutely LOVED it!! Although we have yet to return to this resort (we want to stay at every resort!), my husband and I do talk about returning soon. If I have a family of 5-6, this is always the first resort I suggest to my clients.

We've been staying at the Fort in our travel trailer for years and will be back next month! The space you get at the campsites can't be found at any other campground we've ever stayed at and the privacy you get from.the Cyprus trees makes you forget you're surrounded by other campers.
I've heard a lot of people complain about the theming at the main pool, but we honestly have a lot of fun there. The water slide and the kids splash pad are excellent.
While additional dining options would be helpful due to the size of the resort, we absolutely love Trail's End! You won't find a better prices buffet on property.
Be sure to say hi if you're down there at the same time!
