Please tell me I didn't make a huge mistake!!!!

I think it's a wonderful idea!
We have stayed there and it's really a very peaceful and fun place. You can see the MK fireworks from the beach if you want (although on July 4th it will be packed even at the beach). You have the campfire movie and smores right there, and the kids will love being able to play outside on the deck.
It's fun to walk to the trading post, see the deer in the morning and just wander through the complex. The boat to MK is also very nice. Food options there are slim, but the trading post does have basic staples and some fun foods you can cook in your cabin.
Don;t worry- the whole family will enjoy Fort Wilderness.

Not sure about the group, but I am quite excited to see Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily! I love my ceramic "paper cup" and use it daily for my coffee. I'm such a fan of the stylized art they have produced as merchandise for the parks.

Pat on the back to John (and Kevin for passing along the business card!)!

Welcome aboard, TravisX4. Can't wait to meet you and all our fellow cruisers! We're really starting to make some headway in this countdown.
Thank you for the reassurance!

It sounds like we have a similar plan except we'll be staying in a cabin instead of a tent.

Thank you!!! You've highlighted all of my reasons for wanting to try a cabin!

I don't know that much about Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily but I like what I see! My oldest son is showing a lot of artistic talent and I would love him to be able to meet working artists so this should be cool!

Hi

Just wanted to let everyone know we are now an official part of podcast cruise 3.0!

We were booked on the cruise anyways, but through some disney magic, Corey, John, and Tracey at DU, we were able to get this all worked out so we can officially be involved!

Dont know our cabin # yet, as we had to upgrade to a GTY cabin, so we wait until it gets assigned.

It will be myself-Art(turning 46 on June 24), Wife-Lisa, and DD-Meghan-16

we cant wait!

Same here, but only 1 night at BLT and the post cruise 2 nights at BWV. Pity we can't stay for July 4th, I'm just crossing my fingers and hope that they'll have an early July 4th fireworks display over the weekend. Last July 4th we stayed at BLT and saw the freworks at Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood studios all from the Top of the World deck.

We're staying one night each per and post cruise at BWV! If we see you and your folks after, Art, we'll say hi.

We'll be without our kids and plan on spending a lot of time in WS doing our own personal F&W Festival.
