Have you ever stayed in a cabin at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground? Come along with me while I bring you on a tour of a cabin!
Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground
Feel close to the magic by camping near the magic! Guests will take in the American frontier with all different types of wildlife inluding deer, rabbits, ducks and armadillos that will roam the resort. Can you believe that this resort takes up 750 acres? You can relax in the great outdoors with only being minutes from Magic Kingdom!
At Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground you will find trails, two pools and entertainment and activities of all kinds! This resort is unique as you won’t find any other resort like it at Disney. The resort opened on November 19, 1971. It consists of both campsites and cabins for guests to enjoy.
People travel from all over just to camp at the Fort Wilderness Campground without ever stepping foot in a park! The campground has a following all its own. People love to participate in the holidays. They even go all out when decorating their campsite and golf cart.
Fort Wilderness Campground is commonly known as “The Fort.” The campsites are in a category of their own when booking and the cabins are considered a “moderate” resort.
There are over 400 cabins at the Fort. They are 504 square feet. This gives guests plenty of room to relax and spread out. The cabins comfortably sleep six.
These are a home away from home! It’s the perfect way to experience the Fort without having a camper or tent.
Outside of each cabin there is a deck. On the deck is a charcoal grill and picnic table.
This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors! We really enjoyed having meals out on the deck.
In the living room there is a pull out couch, chair and coffee table. There is also a large TV.
On either side of the TV there are cabinets. These cabinets have extra pillows and blankets. They also make for great storage!
In the above picture is the pull out couch. This gives an extra sleeping surface but also stows away for more room during the day.
The full kitchen may be my favorite part of the cabin. The full size fridge and cabinets make it easy to store food to prepare for you and your family. This made it so simple for my family to make quick and easy meals! This saved us money.
The kitchen includes a convection/microwave oven, two burner cooktop, coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, and full size refrigerator.
In between the kitchen space and living room is a dining room table. The table was small, but we still felt we had enough room for all five of us to eat at it (three adults, one child, and a toddler). Since we were traveling with a toddler, I was able to request a high chair. This was perfect to include my son in meal time. He was able to sit right at the table with us.
As we head further into the cabin there is a hallway that leads to the bathroom and bedroom. In the picture above, the first door on the right is locked and guests are unable to open it.
The bathroom is your second door on the right. The bedroom is straight ahead down the hall.
There is only one bathroom in the cabin, but it has everything you will need. There is only one sink on the vanity. It would be nice to have two, but this works just fine. There is also a tub/shower combo, so it is easy to clean up the kids after a day in the park or running around the campground.
In the cabins, guests will find complimentary shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. This is different than in the rest of the campground. You will need to bring your own toiletries for the Comfort Station.
There are complimentary toiletries in the cabins. Be aware if you visit a Comfort Station you will need to bring your own.
Guests will also find towels in the bathroom as well. Again, if you visit a Comfort Station or either pool, you will need to bring your own towel!
The bedroom is straight ahead at the end of the hall. This room comfortably sleeps four.
When you first enter the room a queen bed is straight ahead of you. There is a small dresser with drawers immediately to your right when you walk in. With the small TV on top, it does feel a little cramped. However, it was nice to have the two TVs.
Next to the small dresser is a closet where you will find an in-room safe, iron, and ironing board. There is another small dresser on the other side of the closet. Above the dresser is a mirror, which may make getting ready in the morning a little easier.
The queen bed is lifted off the floor, so there is plenty of room to store luggage. This is helpful to give you the most space to enjoy moving around the cabin.
A bunk bed completes the sleeping arrangements. These bunk beds are fun! Kids will love this, plus no one has to share a bed! In between the beds is a small nightstand.
The biggest draw back to the bedroom was there wasn’t enough electrical outlets. I’m sure this is because it’s “camping” and not an updated hotel with all the latest technology charging stations. It was challenging trying to find outlets to charge our phones.
Unfortunately, even parking at your own cabin costs money. The cabins fall in the moderate booking category. Parking fees are $20 a day.
The cabins have quickly become one of my favorite accommodations at Disney World! I love the space and the rustic feel. The campground is relaxing, but you don’t feel that you are too far away from the magic. It is truly a home away from home. I can’t wait to book my next stay at the cabins.
