"The cabin was perfect. One experience ruined it."
We loved the cabin. It was comfortable and clean. The problem we had was when our son got sick in the middle of the night (1am) in bed. It took three phone calls and 90 minutes to get a new set of bedding delivered. That was completely unacceptable service. When I called the next day to mention it to the front desk, all I got was "you need to call a different department" type of service. So frustrating.

We stayed from 01/23/14 to 01/26/14. Very nice place, lots of things to do. We have stayed there several times and it is always a great time. Easy accesss to Magic Kingdom. The boat ride to the park is another thing that kids love. The staff is very nice and the cabins are great but they starting to need some upkeep. The mattresses are not comfortable. In our cabin, there was a broken chair and one of the stove big burner did not work. Nothing really major but they will need to start fixing things up a bit. We are planning to go back next year and recommend it to any family looking for a great time without the luxuries of other Disney's hotels.

"Don't forget the golf cart"
This resort area is massive. Lots to do, but not really set up for car parking at many of the areas. Make sure you reserve a golf cart because they do run out of them. This is my favorite Disney resort. It is a great way to get a break from the crowds but still enjoy the Disney experience.

"Nice location and Ambiance. Highly Reccommended"
Just stayed there for 5 days. The resort location is perfect, just a boat ride away from Magic Kingdom. Keep in mind this resort is BIG. But they have internal transportation to go to the front desk (Outpost), Swimming Pool (Meadows trading center) and to the Marina (where you will get the boat to Magic Kingdom). Transportation is very good, never waited for more than 10 mins for the bus. But the timing may vary in peak season and the buses can be crowded too in peak season. There are Golf Cart available for rent, which will make your commute inside the resort a breeze. The golf cart rental is $60 per day (Expensive..... but its Disney). They have Movies, Dance shows and Mickeys Bar-be-que inside the resort so plenty of things to get your kids entertained. So in all it was pleasant stay.

Everything was great we stay here every year and its always a pleasant visit, rooms are a little dusty but perfect otherwise. We did discover that the only way to the Magic Kingdom is by boat from the campground. Its not convenient when it is lightning.

"A few too many problems - not so magical."
"Please tell us whether you would recommend this hotel: Maybe - it depends on what you are looking for. We reserved two cabins; they could only find one reservation, even though we had both confirmations. This took over an hour to straighten out at check-in.They then sent us to one cabin that was under renovation and not available, so we had to go back and spend another 30 minutes getting another cabin. Upon returning to Fort Wilderness after going out somewhere, we went to the "returning guest" lane and used the room key to pass the automatic gate. Then you have to pass through another check point behind the registration center. At least three times we pulled up, there was a long delay, or no one present, so we had to turn around and drive around the registration center to get back in to the camp ground. Our unit was the first one on the right entering our section - but because the circular drive is one way, we had to turn left and drive all the way around a very long circle. There is a decent flat screen TV in each cabin, but programming is minimal. Not even ESPN! There is no parking inside the camp ground, except at your unit. You must ride a bus everywhere, or rent a golf cart (or walk). It is not real convenient or comfortable, not for everybody. If the situation is right for you it would be better than some of the on-site hotels but it is very expensive for a mobile home/RV park.

We love the cabins at fort wilderness. The restaurant is very good. The rental of golf carts makes it easy to come and go whenever you wish.. The wilderness surrounding the area is home to deer you see when traveling around in the golf cart. We also watched the armadillo having breakfast. Beds are very comfortable.

"Better than a Hotel"
Disney Campground is a great set up to help save a little on food. We rented a cabin(disquised trailer) which all come with a kitchen. We eat breakfast and lunch there and splurge on dinner. Campground trailers are well insulated so you won't here your neighbors. They come with a porch with picnic table and outside grill if needed. We were located a mere 200' from one of the pools and bus stop. Pools here are much more basic than the hotel pools so don't expect much, although at least one has the slide like in the promo photos online. The kids like the ferry boat ride to The Contemporary and then monorail to Magic Kingdom. Quite a few people rent the golf carts at $60 a day to putter around the expansive grounds. Another not so well known benefit is free parking at the Disney parks if you stay at this resort. I assume that applies to all but we just stay here.

"kids loved it, I didn't"
We filled it to capacity with 2 kids, a teen, ourselves, and my MIL. It was fine for a few days. The kids LOVED it. L-O-V-E-D it. I am not a fan of public transportation, and found walking a short distance to a bus stop, taking transfers, and then taking ferries to get anywhere, annoying. Also, restaurants with warm food and tea were too far away (walking, buses, limited hours). I preferred pop century where a short walk brought me to a quick-style restaurant/deli/lobby open early and late with a bus stop just outside. The kids LOVED the pool and splash area, but had to wait for the staff to open it at 10, by which time we wanted to be elsewhere. Also had to wait for staff to turn on the pool heater, so cool water was a drawback. And, it was too far away for my MIL to walk comfortably, so she walked the shorter hike to the bus stop and took a transfer. Three bus lines inside confused me (I'm from the country, ma'am). When I found myself scrubbing a breakfast skillet and taking time from my vacation while wasting the tiny bit of sunshine during our rainy stay, I realized I would never stay in the cabins again. If you don't mind 5-10 min hikes to get anywhere, lots of buses, and squeezing into a small cabin, this is nice. LOTS of ppl, cabins close together, but more private than in a hotel room. If it were again the cheapest option, I'd take it. If there were other options? Nah.

Like always, it was an amazing experience staying at Fort Wilderness. Every day there is something different to do. If you run out of ideas, take the bus or the boat and visit any Disney Resort. I have a 1year old and a 5year old, plus I took my niece and a friend who are 10 and 11. There is something for everybody. A must see!

The resort feels like you are no longer in florida, with the exception that you are a 5 minute boat ride to the main entrance of the Magic Kingdom. The kids loved the marshmallow roast and sing a long with chip and Dale. They also thought driving in a golf cart was a lot of fun, and I would highly recommend getting one because the resort is expansive. The cabins were a perfect size and were very clean. Our favorite place so far!

Kitchen was FILTHY, pot holders had food encrusted, plates were dusty when I pulled them out of the cupboard, utensil holder in drawer was dirty, the side of the refridgerator was rusted and the bottom of the dishwasher was rusted. One of the cupboards had plywood (unpainted) as the top that could be seen from the inside. The bathroom had an inch of dust around the top of the shower backsplash, the corners of the bathroom floor had dirt and the bathroom mirror frame was covered in dust. Very dark, they need to install higher wattage bulbs in the lighting. I realize this is not a deluxe resort, however we did expect it to be clean. Cabin # 2315 on Shawnee Bend, Fort Wilderness

"Fort Wilderness Cabins Great - Maid Service Not!!"
Stayed at Fort Wilderness with my two daughters for our annual visit to the Epcot Wine and Food Festival! We've been staying there for 15+ years and LOVE the convenience and casual atmosphere of Fort Wilderness ... we always have the best time just hanging out on the property and appreciate the easy access to Monorail and Magic Kingdom via boat launch! This year, for the first time, we had difficulties with Maid Service. Of the five nights we stayed, the room was actually only fully serviced twice. The other days, Staff arrived to clean the cabin after 2 PM, when we were back for a break, and we simply took fresh towels and coffee supplies rather than disrupt our down time by moving out to allow cleaning! Not sure what the problem was, but I hope it was just a one-time glitch! Very annoying!!

"Wooded seclusion in Disney World"
We stayed in a cabin for a week, and visited the theme parks and Typhoon Lagoon. The cabin is very roomy (one bedroom with double + 2 twin bunks, full kitchen, living room with pull-down bed). Hollywood studios was having a special star wars weekend. The cabins feel so peaceful in the woods- a big contrast to the theme parks. Some people rent golf carts but is it a lot cheaper to rent a car.

"Hotel diferente dos convencionais"
Gostei do hotel pela característica diferente dos quartos de hoteis convencionais, já que a hospedagem são em cabanas numa área verde muito aprazível e com bastante vida animal (esquilos, pássáros, etc.). As cabanas são aconchegantes, com cozinha completa, sala e quarto. As camas são pequenas, não recomendadas para pessoas acima de 1,70m de altura. Eu sofri um pouco já que tenho 1,76m - dormia enviezado na cama beliche). A dificuldade fica no transporte entre as cabines e o resto do complexo, já que tudo é longe e em alguns lugares não há local de estacionamento de carros, obrigando a se ir de ônibus interno (gratuito), que demora de 5 a 15 minutos para chegar. Deslocamento para os parques da Disney sofre o mesmo problema, agravado ainda a se ter que fazer baldeação. A solução é ir de carro para os parques (o estacionamento é gratuito para os hóspedes do hotel).

"コテージが広い敷地内に点在しているホテル"
マイアミ在住の者です。夏休み期間中に、家族とともに滞在する機会がありました。 アメリカ独特の小規模トレーラーハウス風のコテージが広い敷地内に点在しています。 一家族に一コテージなので、利用自由度は大きいです。クイーンサイズBed×1, 2段Bed×1に加えて、クイーンサイズのExtra Bedが常設されており、利用可能でした。(壁からオーブン引き戸の様に引き出すスタイルで、子供は喜んで使ってました) 一方で、キャンプ場が主たるコンセプトなため、桟橋やレストラン近辺には駐車場は無く、各コテージの近くのバス停から無料循環バスを利用しての移動となります。(Disney Hotelのなかでも、広大なホテル敷地内に独自の循環バスシステムを運営しているのは ココだけでは? 結局、その利便性の悪さから、自家用車でテーマパークや外のレストランを利用しました) 別途ゴルフカートも借りれますが、有料です。 コテージには大きな冷蔵庫、キッチン、オーブンや食器なども揃っていましたので、食材を買い込んで 自炊やBBQを行う方向けですね。中長期滞在を前提とすると、日本からの短期滞在者には不向きかも知れません。なお、コテージの周りは、うっそうとした木々に囲まれた軽井沢の別荘にいるかのような雰囲気を味わえます。
