A few more questions. Like I said in my previous post, I've never been to Fort Wilderness, but my fiance, myself and his 2 kids (10 and 13) are going next summer and thinking about staying at the Fort. Does Disney rent campers and/or tents? If so, anyone aware of prices? Also, for those that have stayed in the wilderness cabins, would 2 adults and 2 children be comfortable in one? Thanks for your help!!!
The tents are $33.75/night in addition to the camp space rental. When I visted in mid October, I went ahead and popped for a "preferred" site for $148.00 for three nights with a AAA discount. Soooo... by my math, that means, I ended up paying a grand total of $83.09/night ( a smidge better than one of the Pops moneywise -- but tons more fun (to my way of thinking anyway ) vacation-wise.

Here is the Disney phone number to rent a tent: 1.407.939.7807 -- you will want to select option #4 for group camping -- which seems odd but at least it worked for me. I understand they also have folding cots for $5/night -- although I chose to bring an inflatable bed with me.

Here are a couple pictures of the tent I rented. It was plenty big for me all by my lonesome ( I was there for the F&W Festival and couldn't interest anybody else in joining me) . Size-wise -- if you are a "close" family and don't mind being cozy, I think you will be fine.

Good Luck!

---EDITED TO REFLECT MY LAPSE INTO HONORARY BLONDENESS --

The cabins are AWESOME! The four of you would be quite comfortable in one -- with plenty of privacy (unlike four in a tent -- DUH! ). I don't know why but I totally missed the fact you were asking about both FW stay options ...

Interior ( I even had cable ):

Camping doesn't mean "CHEAP"-- It means "VALUE"

This is actually a sign on the wall of the train station in AK but I think it sums up how I (a self-confessed former room service princess) now feel about camping...
