    Just got back from Disney Last mo. planning our trip for next year. Has anybody stayed at the Cabins at FW & if so do you think its worth the upgrade from a Value Resort? Also, does Disney have the free dining plan every year, if so when? Thanks!


    Not only is my family a fan of the campsites at Fort Wilderness, we've enjoyed the cabins also.

    Yes, the cabins are an upgrade from the Value Resorts, but when you consider the fact that they come with a full-size kitchen, you may be able to justify the extra cost with a few home-cooked meals vs. in the parks!  What the cabins also provide that the values do not is the larger accommodations that sleep six, two televisions (in case the kids want to watch something else!), a separate bedroom, a large living area, plus an outdoor grill and deck.  Even when compared to the family suites at the All-Star Music resort, the cabins, in my opinion, have the leg up!

    Fort Wilderness itself is home to the Hoop dee Doo Revue dinner show and the free Chip 'n' Dale campfire sing-a-long, in addition to boat service to the Magic Kingdom.  The grounds house the stables for the horses that trot down Main Street, U.S.A. and the resort activities range from archery to fishing!  The pool is newly renovated with a slide and has a new waterplay area for smaller kids.  Our family can't wait to go back in October!

    But don't just take my opinion!  Fellow Mom's Panelist Kay visited in May for the first time.  You might want to ask her her thoughts via her bio page! 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation next year!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
