Hiya Guys

Just posted this on the Camping Forum.

I've just spoken to the front desk at FWC and had it confirmed to me that all the Cabin Loops are now fully remodelled.

I surely hope he's right as were arriving in 59 days, not that I'm counting

I have a question about the cabins, do they have a tv in the bedroom?? We will be there this December and my daughter and I sleep with the tv going. Thank you for your help.

When being chased by a bear, you don't have to outrun the bear. You just have to outrun the other guy.

Yes, there are 2 TVs - one in the bedroom and one in the den.

Wilderness Lodge or Wilderness Cabins?

My husband and I are planning on coming to Disney World on Dec. 12th thru 18th. We have already made plans for the Wilderness Lodge with Deluxe Dining. I was wondering if we should stay in the cabins instead? I like having a kitchen and having a little more privacy. Any suggestions? No kiddos. Thanks!

lklasing I read your trip report at the cabins. It looks like you had a great time. thanks for sharing.

One more question (and i think i already know the answer but will ask just in case) - i know that golf carts are allowed and from what i am reading with as many kids as we have we will probably need some form of campground transportation, and i know that bikes are allowed, but are the children's power wheels allowed? I think this would be fun but i also see a lot of problems with allowing children to drive from point A to B. But if they allow children to drive bikes... My husband and I do not have bikes and neither does the baby, like i said before we wont all fit on one golf cart and renting two will blow my budget. I did find some other places in orlando that rent 6 pass. GC and will delvier/pickup to FW but for $447/6 days.
If not I suppose we could do one GF and let the big kids ride their bikes? Still thinking...still planning...still dreaming...

Glad you liked my TR! About Power Wheels, I've never noticed anything that would disallow them. I'm assuming the kids with Power Wheels are pretty young so obviously I wouldn't want them out on them without you there by them, but I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't be allowed. Are you thinking of getting a GC and having some of you on the GC while some are on the Power Wheels? That might work, although it seems like it would be slow going to get from, say, the cabins to the marina. As I recall those Power Wheels aren't too fast...

Just my .02. I'd love to hear what others think about that one!

I think I've already changed my mind (again) about the whole power wheel thing. First, getting them there. Second, they go max of 5MPH and that is with a fully charged battery which brings me to third, charging the batteries. Maybe a combo of bikes and GC. My mom's GC is a two seater but i see that they rent 4 seaters... Or maybe a combo of GCs and bikes...

Oh the bliss of being the family planner....

You seem to know alot about the cabins, by chance do you know if they have channel 96? That is my DD channel of choice. Thank you for your help.

Honestly, depending on how big everyone is, I think you can get everyone on one GC. It will be tight, but do-able.



This is my DD12, nephew 5 and DD10 on the back. We also regularly had my 2 DDs plus my other nephew who is 14 sitting in that same seat together. i would think you could put the 3 biggest kids together in the back, put the 5 year old in between you and your DH and have the baby sitting in your lap. Obviously I wouldn't go crazy driving fast around turns with that many people, and some people might disagree with my thinking you are okay to do it that way. But, it seems to me that you could get around with just one cart.
