The Cabins at Fort Wilderness resort are so much fun! My family isn’t big on tent camping or dealing without air conditioning in the Florida heat, so this is a great alternative and you still get to experience the amenities and relaxation that Fort Wilderness is known for. Do you know these 6 points about the Cabins at Fort Wilderness resort?:


6 – There is a kitchen.

Yes, you have your own kitchen to make use of during your stay. Kitchens are usually only associated with the deluxe villas on property, but it is great that is a standard feature of all of the cabins. This can help save you a lot of money on meals since you can prepare meals for your family right at your cabin here and there, or at least keep snacks and beverages on hand. Not only is there a kitchen, but the cabin also comes equipped with all of the pans, dishes, utensils, etc. that would need to have a fully functioning kitchen at the cabin. This means you don’t have to pack all of these supplies and housekeeping still comes to clean the cabin and take care of the dishes for you!

5 – You can have groceries delivered and stocked in your refrigerator.

If you don’t have a car with you or you don’t want to have to spend time doing the shopping, you can let Disney take care of it for you. You can put in your complete grocery order and come to your cabin to find that your fridge has been stocked with all of the items that you need. It is a very convenient way to shop and gets you prepared to have your meals, snacks, etc. at your cabin if you plan to do so. This service can save you a lot of time and hassle and help you get right to the fun when you arrive.

4 – Tons of recreational activities.

There is so much to do that the resort that you could spend days just enjoying all of the recreation. You have the pool, the stables, carriage rides, campfires, the pool, bike rentals, walking trails and so much more. The resort also has coordinated activities for guests to participate in to create fun and memorable experiences for all guests to enjoy while they are relaxing and enjoying the resort. For each of the holidays there are also themed activities to enjoy, too. It is a great resort to be at for all times of the year!

3 – Wow that is a lot of cabins!

Believe it or not there are actually 407 cabins on at the resort for guests to stay at during their magical stay at Walt Disney World. Each cabin is around 12 feet by 42 feet in dimensions, so you have a lot more space than your average resort room, especially for the price. You also have your own private outside area to enjoy the great outdoors and a bit of relaxation with your family, along with all of the common spaces and experiences throughout the resort.

2 – You have a grill and picnic area outside.

Not only do you have a kitchen, but you also have a grill and your own picnic tables outside. This makes it very easy and convenient to grill hot dogs and hamburgers for the family and enjoy time outdoors. It makes meals a lot of fun and you won’t even miss not dining at one of the restaurants for every single meal. If you like campfires for s’mores you can go to the resort campfire or you can bring your own approved burn pit to have a fire right at your cabin so you can relax under the stars!


1 – You can rent a golf cart or bring your bikes.

To walk from the cabins to all the various amenities on property can be quite a long walk during your stay at the resort. If you are concerned about all of the walking, you can actually rent a golf cart during your stay to get around to all of the various amenities, including the boat transportation. You can also bring or rent bikes to get around and ride your bike from place to place. There are places to park your bike while you are at various locations, too, so it is super convenient for you to get around and get the benefits of a little bit of privacy and seclusion during your stay. Sometimes you can actually have your cake and eat it, too!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
