Our Cabin Awaits!

What a great thread to keep me excited about our trip!! Thanks for all the maps and photos and tips. We are coming May 5-13th. DH and DD10. I know I'll think of lots of questions but for now, can you tell me if there is an outlet on the porch of the cabin, say for party lights? Also, are there coffee makers in the kitchen (please say yes!!)

Hi Jennifer!

Lots of fun....9 days at FW!!! I bet your daughter is super excited, isn't she?! Y'all are going at a great time of year. The weather isn't too hot and not too cool, and usually the crowds are low - even better, right!

If I remember correctly, there is an outlet outside. So, you're going to bring party lights!!?? And I'm 150% sure there are coffee pots....2 to be exact. There's a 4 cup and a 10 cup - take your pick . I'm a huge coffee fan, too. It's a must-have in the morning.

Happy Planning!
Heather

Very nice, would be cool to some link this thread to the camping board on the Dis, where a lot of visitors to the Fort post.

Thanks Richard! Is there a way to link it over there? I'm not really sure...wish I knew. But you're right, the Camping Thread has lots of traffic for the Fort, especially those in RVs, campers and tents. I'm more of a cabin girl, myself

Party Lights and more!

Well, maybe we'll just have to start something, eh? We can't let those folks in the trailers have all the fun!
Also, when we were the Dream, we decorated our door with magnets. I'm wracking my brain trying to think of a fun way to decorate our door at the cabin, that's allowed and not harmful to it. I would LOVE to do a wreath of some sort, decked out with Chip and Dale and Daniel Boone Donald etc, but it would have to be shipped to be there when we arrived. Not completely crazy, but a little bit! It would be great to come up with something else that was travel friendly.... any ideas anyone?

Since I have (another) 2-hour school delay, this would be a great time for a little Christmas 2013 FW cheer…

I am not sure how, but maybe some very strong magnets will hold it on there. We always have Fort Wilderness items on our cruise doors, working on something for our Feb. Magic cruise, if I can think of something, I will let you know!

Love the squirrels!! And love the wreath idea with Chip and Dale!! I've already been on Pinterest looking for ideas. When I find something, I'll post a pic. And don't worry about being "crazy". Where else can you go and see grown men walking around with Mickey hats and shirts and not think twice??!! ONLY Disney!

What in the world?! I thought the weather was clearing. Rain forecasted for us.

Thank ya for sharing the pic!!! Now you've given me another idea... Something to put on my golf cart!! Since it will be June, it's going to have to be a Summer time theme. And when DH tells me I'm over the top, I'll just blame the idea on you

Metal Doors on Cabins?

Are the doors metal? I just assumed they were wooden... But that would make more sense, now that I think about. But, even if they are, I like my wreath idea! I went on Ebay and typed in Chip and Dale, looking for little things to put on/in it... lots of options!!

Here's a question though... I know YOU guys won't think I'm crazy, but I have one of those "grumpy" non-Disney-inclined husbands. Once I get him there, he's fine, but I can't imagine how my wifely stock might plummet if he knows I went to the trouble of a)making the wreath and b)shipping it! Should I care??? He is a Bruce Springsteen nut. I have travelled thousands of miles to see Bruce with him and all of it with a smile on my face (granted, I love him too now) but STILL. I would LOVE it if he'd show me a little Disney love! Ok, that is my rant for the day, thank you for listening.

We are heading to the Bahamas! I am sure we will make a day trip to the Fort, as we always do when in the area. I have been going to the Fort since it first opened, go to the Camping board and look for the picture of the day, on the last page you will see me back in the early '70s at the Fort. I am working to scan more of the older photos from our trips there. Thanks again for all the break down of the Fort. We are going to be camping in our fifth wheel late May into early June, mostly hanging at the Fort, but spending a few days working at Give Kids the World!

Richard
