Glad to hear you're coming to join us in October! What dates you coming? We'll be there 19-26.
October is such an awesome time to visit WDW and especially FW....love all the Halloween decorations!!! Y'all will have a fabulous time!!
Hello! Your luggage will be delivered to your cabin. Also, when you check out, you will need to call the main number from your cabin phone and they will come pick you up with your luggage. It's a nice comfy van service. The number is on the cabin phone. It's very convenient. All 4 times that we have stayed, we didn't have a rental car.
Has anyone heard when the arm bands are coming to FW Cabins?
I've seen posts stating around Oct 21st...
thank you so much. although I did subscribe to this thread, today is the first time I got an email telling me there was a new post on this thread.
I didn't mean to be wordy on why I was asking - but I went through the whole thread and saw where I asked the same question 2 years ago. . . thought it might look odd asking again.
We love FW. So this information is wonderful.
thank you again!
We are staying at FWC for the first time in late Feb/earlyMar2014 and we are very excited. We are Floridians so we definitely will not being using the pool this trip. We are also doingMickey'sBackyard BBQ for the first time. Can anyone offer loop suggestions they like and why they prefer the location? Thanks in advance.
No problem! Glad to help! We love the cabins and will not change for anything!
Does anyone know if people decorate the outside of the cabins like they do at the campsites? If so is there any pictures?
We like loop 2500. It's right next to the quiet pool and the laundry and there's a bus stop right across the street.
We put lights around the deck railing and candles in the windows. This trip we're hoping to do more, but generally, the cabins are not really decorated.
We are so excited to be staying at Fort Wilderness cabins in December. We have our reservation linked to my parents in the hope we get next door to each other. We have 2 golf carts rented. We bought our tickets and are paid in full. We are just waiting and hoping we get Magic bands soon. We stayed here back in 2009 and then went to the villas at WL in 2011. Excited to get back to FW and see all those Christmas decoration the campers put up.
I do have a couple of questions. Is the pool heated? I know the kids will want to swim but wasn't sure if it would be possible in December. Do I need to bring towels for the pool?
We are staying at the Cabins the first week of December and just can't wait! The MagicBand order showed up on My Disney Experience last week and I have all our FastPass+ selections made for the week
Question... we will have both a rental car and a cart (for a least a few days). So being close to a bus stop isn't too important to us. Is there suggestion for a more quiet loop/area? I know nothing is really "private" but what should I request?
My recollection (and this is going back a few years) is that the pool is heated (at least the main pool) -- we went in Feb and same thing, kids wanted to swim! And yes, you need to bring your own towels for the pool (you can bring from your cabin and request more).
Back when we stayed a few years ago everything was cvery clean - not creepy at all!
Can anyone tell me the current rate of renting a golf cart at Fort Wilderness. When I made reservations 10 months ago for December and was told $59.00 a day plus tax, but the prices may be increased on October 1st. I checked the Disney web site and it said $79.00 a day. Please tell me I am reading this wrong!
You are not reading that wrong.
Sorry didn't see this.....18-29th!
we are checking in Dec 15th for a 2 night stay- our first time in the cabins!!
anything we should know for our first stay? our son is 15- special needs -
so we are renting a golf cart for the two days. we were told it would be 125.00 total for the two days and would be charged the day before we arrive.
i have one question about arrival - what time can we check in our cabin? we were told to pick up the cart at check-in. what do we do with the cart if our cabin is not ready at check-in?
thanks for any help!!
If you do online check in, it asks you what time you arrive. I have heard that typically the rooms are ready but if not, there are plenty of places you can park the golf cart. Near the bus transportation and by the restaurant and water transportation there is plenty of parking. I recommend to go to the restaurant side b/c there are plenty of activities to do while you wait for your room. Glad you rented the cart. It makes it much more enjoyable. We stayed at the cabins in 2009 and will be there again this dec 7-15. I hope you love it as much as we did. Be sure to drive your golf cart around in the evening and look at all the decorations the campers put up. Some of them are pretty amazing. The front desk should be able to tell which loops are best to tour.
