    We hope to reserve Cabins at Fortwilderness Thanksgiving week 2022. My son's girlfriend will be a college freshman hours from Orlando. Hopefully, she can spend part of the week with us. Is there a way to add her for just a portion of our stay?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Rebecca. Thanks for dropping by with your question. 

    Rebecca, you are going to love staying in the Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. My family and I stay in a cabin there the week of Christmas each year and it is just perfect. It's so spacious, perfect for a multip-generational stay and the kitchen is really convenient, especially around the holidays. 

    Rebecca, there isn't a way to add on your son's girlfriend for only part of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation. It's kind of an all-or-nothing system. However, because the cabins are intended for several people, there isn't any additional charge for more adults on the reservation like at most of the other hotels. There isn't really any penalty to adding her to the room reservation even if she can't be there the whole time. The cabins are designed to sleep up to 6 people and there isn't an extra charge for any way you'd like to arrange that. So, in my opinion, if you have enough room on the reservation to add her for the whole time, that's the way to do it. 

    While you are staying at the Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, have you thought about renting a golf cart? There are so many fun things to do at The Fort, as it is lovingly referred to, but it is a pretty spread-out campus. Having a golf cart certainly makes it easier and honestly much more fun to get around. You can rent a golf cart directly from Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground by calling 407-WDW-PLAY. You can make your golf cart reservations a year in advance and you are well within that timeframe. If this is something that interests you, I do suggest doing it sooner rather than later because they are on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

    If you have other questions about staying at The Fort, or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
