    Fort Wilderness Cabins in February 12-19th What are the pools like? Do you suggest renting the golf cart? (13, 12, 9 and 1.5 year old) We will have stroller of course. How far from cabins to buses, boats etc. and how far to Wilderness Lodge for dinner?

    Hi Amy!

    Thank you for sending in your questions to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    My family and I just spent a week in a Fort Wilderness cabin in August and we all loved it!  We rented a golf cart, but in my opinion it can really only hold 5 people though you might be okay since your youngest is just 1.5 years old.  The golf cart made our stay there very enjoyable though a golf cart is relatively expensive; it simply makes getting around Fort Wilderness easy and fun.  We would have had a lot less fun and not have explored the resort as much if we didn't have a golf cart.

    Fort Wilderness is divided into large loops.  All of the loops are near a bus stop, but your cabin could be anywhere on the loop and thus it could be far from a bus stop.  It can easily take 30 minutes or more to walk from one end of the resort to the other, so you will definitely want to have a golf cart or to use the internal buses.  To get to the Wilderness Lodge, you would take an internal bus to the boat dock and then take a boat to the Wilderness Lodge.  There is a boat that runs between the Wilderness Lodge, the Contemporary Resort, and Fort Wilderness.  Boats generally come about every 20 minutes.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
