    Best time to stay at Ft. Wilderness on a budget?

    Hello, Karen,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel about Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. I looked over the rates from last year and found the following dates to be from the Value Season:

    -January/February (avoid New Year's Day, the Disney Marathon on 1/3 to 1/7/2018, MLK weekend, and Presidents' Day Weekend)
    -Mid-July to first part of September (avoid Labor Day weekend)
    -September (following Labor Day weekend)
    -Mid-October to right before Thanksgiving 

    You can also call Walt Disney World directly at (407) 939-5277 to ask about what the cost is per night to better understand what the specific resort rate is that you are looking at for your stay. Meanwhile, I thought you'd like to take a peek inside one of Disney's Fort Wilderness Cabins with this blog article from the Disney Parks Blog. 

    If we can answer any other questions, please let us know.  -Kara
