FW cabins..a couple of questions please..(golf cart, activities)

We have stayed at FW before. We didn't rent a golf cart, which we'll definitely be doing this time!

When you rent one and drive it to the dock, do you just leave it there and then pick it back up when you return from the parks??

Also, I have read posters saying how much there is to do there? What activities do they have? A lot of the major Disney lover websites tend to do the same thing with just saying they have a lot of "activities" without elaborating.

We have waivered back and forth as to where to stay (CSR Club, etc.) but decided this would be more quiet, while being close to MK.

Thank you!!!!!

Some of the above are few and others are at a fee. There is also the Campfire Sing-a-long and movie every night. I know there are planned activities at the main pool, but I think they sometimes have other activities that you can find out about at Meadows.

We stayed at the cabins in Fall 2011. Had I known how much they had to offer I wouldn't have made quite so many plans and spent more time there. The movie and campfire really is fun. Plan on at least one night there, great memories.
Oh and when you check-in, you'll receive an information sheet for the activities happening while you're there.

Yes, you just leave it there. You can even plug it in if you park near one of the outlets. I would strongly suggest you have a towel stowed somewhere in the cart though because if it rains, the seats will be wet and it's nice to have something to dry it off with.

You can also find a lot of information regarding the FW Cabins on the camping board.
