AND: suppose we add another adult?

remember, we just had a week in a ship stateroom where there isn't much space so we don't need to lay about the room..we'll be busy in the parks or on horses or whatever...........
You'll fit but it will be close quarters, especially if you add the 5th adult. There is a Pack n Play in the cabin for the infant to sleep in, if required. One issue is going to be storage for your clothes but it is doable. Some may have to just use their luggage as storage. The biggest issue (especially if the 5th adult comes) will probably be the single bathroom. I would suggest requesting one of the first 5 cabins in the the 2100 loop and you would then have easy access to the comfort station nearby in the 1100 loop.

There is a path from the 2100 loop to the comfort station and having access to it will certainly speed things up in the morning when everyone is trying to get ready for the day.

Thank you for your help!!

I've been looking at videos and photos of the cabins, and I can't seem to figure out where the dressers are. Where do you put all your clothes?

Also, am I correct that FTW doesn't have a health club? Can cabin guests use the Sturdy Branches at WL?

For anyone who has stayed in a cabin in the past year or so, how would you rate the cleanliness and overall condition and how are the mattresses and bedding?

TIA

Stayed there last month for 5 days

There is a small closet and dresser in the bedroom. There are cabinets in the bathroom, kitchen and living room. That is about it as far as places to put clothing. We just kept our clothes in our suit cases while we were there. Not optimal but it worked for our family.

I'm thinking of the stroller situation at the parks where sometimes someone can't find theirs, so they just take another.

Good question ! Anyone know ? For example, say you go to the MNSSHP on the boat and come back late would your cart still be there ? Is it okay to leave it so long ?

Our cart number tag and key numer tag matched. Is the key universal? I don't know.

I have never used the grocery service, but I have read numerous posts where people either have arrived at their cabin and their delivery was already inside or they've been away when the delivery occurred and the groceries were inside.

Based on these reports, I'm guessing you would have to include the tip when placing your order to have a better chance of ensuring the delivery guy received a tip.

Just got back from our FW/CR vacation! Was great!!! I have started a trip report with tons of pictures from the pool, Chip n Dale sing-a-long, HDDR, MBYBBQ, and scenery from the campgrounds. Fort Wilderness is just beautiful...very peaceful and a nice get away from all the hustle and bustle of the parks. The golf cart was really nice to have, also...kids loved it!!! I have very positive things to say about FW...not too many negatives...everything will be in the TR.

Happy travels!
Heather

Heather, you've awakened a dead thread. Can't wait to hear about the room cleanliness/condition & mattress quality that I was wondering about way back in April
