Someone was kind enough to share that they thought it would still be delivered to your cabin. In the end we switched and stayed at a Deluxe in 2011 and 2012 though. So I still do not know first hand how this work.

So, now my DH wants to go with us again, does not want to drive but wants to stay in the cabins.

I still have questions regarding ME/luggage.

Can anyone who has stayed at the cabins without a car tell me. When you arrive does ME deliver your luggage to your cabin - just as they would to your room at a resort?

Also, how do you handle luggage when you check out?

I've not decided at this point if we will rent a golf cart. I'm guessing we will. But I would like to have the luggage point worked out so we know FW will work regardless of whether or not we have a cart.

Thank you!
Hello! Your luggage will be delivered to your cabin. Also, when you check out, you will need to call the main number from your cabin phone and they will come pick you up with your luggage. It's a nice comfy van service. The number is on the cabin phone. It's very convenient. All 4 times that we have stayed, we didn't have a rental car.

thank you so much. although I did subscribe to this thread, today is the first time I got an email telling me there was a new post on this thread.

I didn't mean to be wordy on why I was asking - but I went through the whole thread and saw where I asked the same question 2 years ago. . . thought it might look odd asking again.

We love FW. So this information is wonderful.

thank you again!

We are also doingMickey'sBackyard BBQ for the first time. Can anyone offer loop suggestions they like and why they prefer the location? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know if people decorate the outside of the cabins like they do at the campsites? If so is there any pictures?

We like loop 2500. It's right next to the quiet pool and the laundry and there's a bus stop right across the street.

We put lights around the deck railing and candles in the windows. This trip we're hoping to do more, but generally, the cabins are not really decorated.

We are so excited to be staying at Fort Wilderness cabins in December. We have our reservation linked to my parents in the hope we get next door to each other. We have 2 golf carts rented. We bought our tickets and are paid in full. We are just waiting and hoping we get Magic bands soon. We stayed here back in 2009 and then went to the villas at WL in 2011. Excited to get back to FW and see all those Christmas decoration the campers put up.
I do have a couple of questions. Is the pool heated? I know the kids will want to swim but wasn't sure if it would be possible in December. Do I need to bring towels for the pool?

We are staying at the Cabins the first week of December and just can't wait! The MagicBand order showed up on My Disney Experience last week and I have all our FastPass+ selections made for the week

Question... we will have both a rental car and a cart (for a least a few days). So being close to a bus stop isn't too important to us. Is there suggestion for a more quiet loop/area? I know nothing is really "private" but what should I request?

My recollection (and this is going back a few years) is that the pool is heated (at least the main pool) -- we went in Feb and same thing, kids wanted to swim! And yes, you need to bring your own towels for the pool (you can bring from your cabin and request more).
