Howdy! FW Cabin FAQ Thread!!

People tend to forget that Fort Wilderness is almost like 2 resorts, a campground and the cabins!

(photos and links in this post are all from the www.wdwinfo.com website)

The cabins are a unique resort experience at WDW, offering spacious and comfy accomidations in a "great outdoors" setting. Cabins are similar to a one-bedroom "villa" complete with a full kitchen, charcoal grill, dishwasher, cable TV, and DVD players. There is parking for 1 vehicle and a golf cart at each cabin. Cabins also recieve full housekeeping daily.

Cabins are located in the 2100 through 2800 loops of Fort Wilderness as seen by the map HERE. Each "loop" is a one-way road lined with between 30 to 72 individual cabins. At the end of each cabin loop is a bus stop, with buses that service the "Purple" route to either the "Outpost" or "Settlement". These buses will be labeled "Outpost Purple" or "Settlement Purple" depending on the direction they are traveling.

The Outpost area is the Front Desk/main parking area. Here you can get bus transportation to Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Typhoon Lagoon, and Blizzard Beach. This is also where the Kennel is located, and where you meet up for the Horseback Trail Rides.

The Settlement area is located near Bay Lake. Here you can visit the Settlement Trading Post, the Tri-Circle D Ranch, Pioneer Hall, the Marina, Clementine Beach, and the boat launch. The Tri-Circle D Ranch is home to the "Show" horses of WDW (the ones that pull the carraiges and are used on Main Street), as well as pony rides and a small display of famous Disney horses (and Minnie Moo!). Pioneer Hall is home to Trails End Buffet (best cornbread in town!), The Hoop Dee Doo Musical Review, Guest Services (for tickets/dining), and the now defunct Crockett's Tavern. At the boat launch you can get transportation to the Magic Kingdom, Wilderness Lodge, and Contemporary Resort.

There's some more info and photos at the WDWInfo page, and of course post away!!
