    Had a few questions:

    Where do you get/use the refillable mugs?
    Do they provide the coffee or do you need to bring your own?


    Thanks!!

    Thanks! I had read somewhere else that the cabins did not have coffee makers so I was confused.

    You're welcome! And honestly, I don't remember if ours did or did not have one. My dad usually hopped on the golf cart and went to Trails End to get his morning coffee. You're going to love FW cabins!!!:thumbsup2

    As mentioned they do have "hotel type" coffee packets that Mousekeeping drops off each day. However, we brought our own coffee and basket style filters. (Actually stopped at a SuperTarget on our way from the airport to FW).

    My family was just there this December and we could get a boat from Fort Wilderness, to Wilderness Lodge, and then the contemporary. I'm not 100% sure what their route is, but they always have 2 boats running and one always makes a stop at the contemporary. They have people on the docks that can help answer any questions :)

    I have never stayed at FW, but one day would love to do so when DD is older. I saw an *old* video of WDW and FW on youtube and it showed people on canoes. Do they still have canoes? Anyone have pics? How much is it to rent and what is the river/stream like?

    Rented canoes at the campground over ten years ago. It was fun then. Water level was very low. Not sure if they still rent though.

    Really enjoyed the little water mice though that are powered and available to rent in 30 minute segments.

    Have fun!:goodvibes:goodvibes
