Are you looking for a more rustic place to stay but you don’t want to go quite as far as bringing your own camper? If this sounds like what you are looking for, you might be interested in checking out the Cabins at Disney Fort Wilderness Resort. These stand alone accommodations give you a place to stay that is really unlike anything else that Disney offers in the Orlando Disney World area. The campground overall is over 750 acres of prime, wooded Orlando property with room for all of the normal campers but there is also a section developed with Single Family Cabins perfect for that extra special vacation week away from normal life. This type of vacation living is not for everyone so make sure you know what you are getting if you sign on to staying at one of the Disney Wilderness Resort Cabins.
What are the cabins like?
Each cabin is set apart from all of the others and have private parking for each guest staying at their very own cabin. Each of these rustic living spaces is nestled in a densely wooded location at the Fort Wilderness Campground. All of the Wilderness Cabins are built exactly the same. Really, the only difference is the location on the campground that each one is situated. You will find a Master Bedroom with a large bed along with a second bedroom with has a large Queen bed and a set of bunk beds. Having a living room to stretch out at night is nice but what makes these living areas nicer than a hotel room is the full Kitchen built into each one.
What else can I do at the Cabins?
If you love the outdoors, the better question would be, is there anything I can’t do at the Disney Wilderness Cabins. The amazing answer to this question is, “There are more things to keep you busy at the Disney Fort Wilderness Cabins and Campground than any other Disney Resort location. If you are looking for a great place to relax and enjoy the pool life for a while, take the family up to the Meadow Swimming Pool where you will find a 67-foot Corkscrew Water Slide that will keep them busy for a bit. For the younger ones, there is a nearby Kiddie Pool and also a Kiddie Water Play area complete with smaller Water Slides. If you are looking for something a little quieter, the Wilderness Swimming Pool is a great place to be. For full information on the the Water Fun available, visit the Disney Fort Wilderness Campground Pool Information page. Enjoy other fun in the Wilderness like Archery, Pony Rides and even Wagon Rides. One of the main features at this resort is the Campfire Sing-a-long that happens nightly. This is something that the kids really enjoy and will want to come back again and again. For a full list of all of the fun available take a look at the Disney Fort Wilderness Amenities.

It can almost get overwhelming when you start to look at how large the Fort Wilderness Cabins and Campground site really is. Not only is it huge, it is full of things to do while you are at this resort that you will not find at other Disney locations. Keep this in mind when you are bringing the family to stay at this resort. It is so full of fun things that you might need more time than you have available to fit it all in. It might be beneficial to sit down and have a big “Family Meeting” to discuss what everyone wants to do during their trip. Make sure that you show them all of the fun things available at this property so you can plan the number of days for the Resort and for the Theme Parks. If you take the time and plan ahead, you might want to get the tickets purchased in advance so you do not have to mess with this once you start your vacation. If that is not possible, stop at the concierge desk and ask them for help in getting what you need. Any time that you spend now will give you additional down time while you are at the resort.

The Cabins at Fort Wilderness will give you a unique perspective of the property around you. Having the option of renting a golf cart is certainly something that you might want to consider during your stay. If you have kids, this will actually be one of the things they talk about long after the trip is over. Since motorized transportation is limited through the resort, this makes for a fun way to get around and see all of the wondrous sights around you. The 2 Large Pool areas are a great way to cool off and have fun as a family. The kids are going to have a blast sliding down the large Corkscrew Water Slide time and time again while you will enjoy the time of soaking in the rays of the Florida sun or deep soaking in the nearby hot tub. At night, when the campfires are lit, bring your kids around for a fun time of singing and laughter while you roast marshmallows. There will be so many memories while you are on your vacation, you better take a lot of pictures to remember them all. Some will stand out above the others but I think that most people agree that once you try the Fort Wilderness, you don’t want to visit anywhere else. There are a number of different places to eat on the property most known for the famous shows, the Hoop-dee-doo Revue and Mickey’s Backyard BBQ. If you are still looking for something else, take take a ride to any of the many dining experiences that you can find nearby in the large city of Orlando.
