Are the cabins nice? How far are they from everthing like the busses, the lodge, boat etc? Would you stay there if given the choice?:confused:

Cabins are nice but small, 500 sg ft. Bedroom has a double and bunks and then not much leftover room with those in there. Living has pull down double and when pulled down there is not much room left in living room. However, they are bigger than even a deluxe hotel room. They sit in various loops having 25 or so cabins each and you walk to the entrance of the loop to catch a bus (takes you to main activity area, other busses and dock area which are all in the "Pioneer Hall" area). The area is heavily wooded and cabins are close to a mile from the main activity area but have their own pool nearby (just a plain pool, no slides). Each cabin has a place to park a car and a large outside porch. Quiet area and you can often see critters in the morning--racoons, armadillos, peacocks. Though they hold six, they are more comfortable for four or less. Air conditioned and teated like hotel rooms (daily maid service). Highly recommend you have a car there and use it for going anywhere other than MK (take the boat there). The bus transportation system leaves much to be desired as you always have to switch transports to get anywhere and that can mean very long trips particularly at any park closing time.

Here's a link to a very good website about Fort Wilderness, with lots of pictures and information. It's maintained by Jeff Spencer. Check it out.

Thanks everyone! Yall are sooo helpful! No, I didn't realize that the WL and these cabins were 2 totally different things, that has me thinking.....I really want to stay at WL, but having more space in the cabins and the quiet is appealing too! Decisions, decisions....I thought I had it all figured out!:confused:

You have now been bitten by the same WDW bug that we all have been bitten by. I hate to inform you that there is no cure to the illness except to keep on planning WDW vacations. You have been warned...
