    Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

    We are getting ready to book a spur of the moment trip for September back to WDW. It will be our first trip back since 2008 and we have stayed at ASM once and POR multiple times and recently stay at the Poly in 08. In speaking with the wife and since there is 5 of us our choices are eithe the FWR Cabin or stay at the AS Music in a suite. I am leaning to Fort Wilderness but not sure how the resort will be. Any suggestions on this resort will be helpful.

    I have never stayed at FW cabins. I have stayed at the All Star Music family suites. There were five adult women that stayed in the suite during food and wine. It worked out well for us. Two shared the pull out bed, two shared the bed room, and one slept on the pull out chair bed. There were two full bathrooms that was essential to all of us getting ready! The kitchenette was great too. Mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Without knowing the dynamics of your group of five it is hard for me to recommend the suite. But, for the five of us- it worked great!

    My neighbors stayed at FW cabin two years ago and loved it. They rented a golf cart for the week they were there.

    I'm headed down in April with my sister's family including two younger boys. Does anyone know about how far the Fort Wilderness Cabins are from the main check-in area and dining areas?

    the cabins are spread all over the campground. there is an internal bus system that will get you to all areas.

    Re: Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

    How is the internal bus system btw? I've stayed at Wilderness Lodge several times (my personal favorite), and we often share a bus with FW. One thing is I am not a camper, especially in the Florida heat I can't see going back to anywhere but an airconditioned hotel room (but to each their own), and I also couldn't imagine having to wait around for another bus. How does this system work? I know they are color coded, but are they efficient? Do you have to walk far?

    The bonus of the Cabins are they have A/C, they have a living room, a blessing with 5 people and a deck area. I wouldn't cook but they do have a small kitchen for those willing to do breakfast or just for snacks and beverages. The living-room area to me is the ultimate draw.

    Me or my family, no way am I spending a week on a fold out chair, I wouldn't sleep.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
