    U are great! Staying in July at the cabins with a 3 and a 18 months (stroller,naps) Will be going back and foward from the resort, but I am very worried about the wait for the transportation, which loop would be the most efficient? Should stay in AllStar?

    Hey Jenny, thanks! How exciting to be planning an upcoming Disney World trip. We just returned from a stay at the Fort Wilderness cabins. I can tell you my only concern in staying there was the transportation. I was also concerned about how long it would take us to move around the resort and get to the parks. I was pleasantly surprised at how convenient the bus service was and the minimal wait times.

    There are a number of internal buses that operate inside the Fort Wilderness grounds. These buses move guests around to the various amenities like the pools and riding stables and they also transport guests to the boat dock or front entrance. You can catch a boat to Magic Kingdom at the dock, or at the front entrance you can catch a bus to the other parks. During our trip we stayed in the 2600 loop, which is located near the front entrance and one of the first stops on the internal route. The  2500 loop was next to our loop. I loved the location of these two loops as they were close to the smaller pool, but the internal bus runs regularly so the waits will most likely be minimal at any loop. I would suggest asking for a cabin near the entrance to the loop so you have a shorter walk to the bus stop.

    We have stayed at the All Star properties a number of times and have always enjoyed our stays, however given the choice we prefer Fort Wilderness over the All Star's resorts. Fort Wilderness is conveniently located just a short ride from Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios and offers a number of unique amenities like carriage rentals, bonfires with Chip and Dale, and horseback riding just to name a few. Another thought is the buses tend to be more crowded for the All Star resorts given the size of the resorts and the value price attracts higher crowds. I am sure you will love the beauty and peacefulness of Fort Wilderness and will find the wait times no longer than other resort locations.

    Hope you have a magical trip!
