    Hi..I been to disney a few times with my husband and 2 children..Now i have 4 there ages are 13,9,2 1/2 and 1. My question is we are going may 9th-may would the fort wilderness cabins be for our group? or do you recommend another resort?


    Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel!

    I'm a huge fan of the cabins at Fort Wilderness. They offer plenty of space with their separate bedroom to close off for naps--and full-size kitchen with dishwasher! Sleeping accommodations include a double bed in the bedroom with bunks and a Murphy Bed in the large living area. I would imagine that your little ones would love the campfire singalong with Chip & Dale, and the boat to Magic Kingdom!

    As much as I  love the cabins, you might be able to get by in a room that sleeps 5 if your littlest one sleeps in a crib. Consider the trade-off between space at the cabin and the added amenities you'd get at one of the Deluxe resorts that have daybeds and allow you to sleep 5 plus an infant. Both the Boardwalk Inn and the Beach & Yacht Club have boats to Epcot and Disney Studios and pool slides (the Beach Club's Stormalong Bay sports a lazy river)! The Polynesian, Contemporary, and Grand Floridian also have rooms that sleep five and transport to Epcot and Magic Kingdom via the monorail.

    If I were in your shoes and knew I might come back in the next few years, I might spring for a Deluxe before the children get to the age where your only options are very popular (read hard-to get) family suites at All-Star Music, the cabins or the pricier two-bedroom villa....

    Wishing you a magical vacation!

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
