Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort Cabins Review and Video

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort Cabins of Walt Disney World are officially classified a moderate level resort by Disney. However, their pricing and amenities make them something of an anomaly for Disney World which hopefully this review and video will help to illustrate.


Each of the cabins of Fort Wilderness Resort is approximately 500 square feet in size making them extremely roomy even in comparison to deluxe level resorts. That additional space allows Disney to offer guests the option to sleep up to six individuals within each cabin.

There are 409 cabins within the resort spread around 750 acres of pine and cypress trees. Also found in the area are the 800 campsites offered by Fort Wilderness.

Those opting for the cabin option will find the amenities of home including a full kitchen, air conditioning, two TVs, a DVD player and a full bath. Outside a deck, picnic table and charcoal grill is located for each cabin.

The bedroom has a double bed and a set of bunk beds. In the living room area, you will find a pull-down double bed to add to your sleeping arrangements.

If you are looking for something to do while staying at Fort Wilderness without going to the park, you will not be disappointed. Located here is the much-loved Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue along with the seasonal Mickey’s Backyard Barbeque. Guests also attend the nearby Chip’n Dale’s Campfire Sing-a-long. Guests also enjoy the two pools of the resort as well as wagon rides, pony rides, carriage rides, boating, biking, etc.

Most guests cook their own meals while staying at Fort Wilderness. However, some enjoy Trail’s End which offers home-style buffet meals three times a day. Pizza delivery is also available in the evening.

Those looking for an extremely different resort option at Disney World will likely find it in the Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort Cabins.
