WE were already planning on stocking up breakfast foods that were simple (cereal, peanut butter/jam, bagels, etc) to store in the room when we were booked at AoA.. this'll just be even easier, with a full kitchen!

My DH is diabetic, so he has GOT to eat breakfast (want to or not!). That, and 4 kids ranging from 9-13 between the two cabins? they need food All. The. Time. The biscuits & gravy sound good, though!

Me too.. when our TA called us, with the CM on hold, this was the only place they could get us into. So in a rash decision, I said ok! What was I to do, it was saving each group of five close to $1000! Thank GOODNESS everyone was ok with the change.. lol And when I mentioned the fishing to my DH, he was almost excited!

This will be our 4th stay at the cabins in a row!! My family will not try anything else! We love Trails End Buffet and we like how you are not in a resort and hear all the other guests going about their business. They are very quiet.

Planning a group trip next year. An old friend with a family of four and ours of five are going to go next Sept and the cabins seem like a good idea (unless Free Dining shows up for our dates and it would save us about $600 for u=our family and about $400 for theirs). I like the way it looks and my wife likes the idea of sitting outside with a cup of tea in the morning. I do have a couple questions.

1) Are their chairs outside for the cabin just to sit in?

2) How clean are the dishes and pans? Are they pretty good or are they kind of creepy?

3) Getting food for the cupboards is important, where is the best place to get it? Is there a grocery store nearby? Also is it reasonable?

There is a picnic table that sits six people on the deck. There are five different chairs with backs (dining table chairs) that can be carried out to deck to sit in.

Cool, my wife would really like to make a cup of tea and just sit out on the deck and relax.

I don't suppose there is a rocker in the cabin by any chance?

Posting from our BEAUTIFUL cabin while DH showers. We immediately fell in love with this place. It's unbelievable. We're off to Trail's End in a bit for breakfast.

I read somewhere that Crockett's Tavern is now closed. Is it true?
Thanks!

Howdy! I'm in the early stages of planning a trip with my 22 year old son for probably 6-7 nights for Fall 2014. My son has Aspergers so the idea of a quiet place to retreat to from the parks appeals to me, plus on my 1st Disney trip in 1978 my family stayed in one of the rented Fleetwood trailers and I really loved FW. I'm definitely planning to rent a car, and maybe a golf cart as well.

Any tips are most welcome.

Welcome, katmu! My DS9 was just recently diagnosed with Aspergers, and he's really looking forward to FW. Hope all goes well with your planning!
