    My husband & I are planning a trip with our 2 small boys for 4 or 5 nights. I am debating between staying at a value resort or the Cabin @ Fort Wilderness? At the Cabin we would have a full kitchen to eat meals in, if we stay in hotel we must eatout.

    Hi Erin,

    I am a huge fan of the cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort.  My boys and I have stayed in cabins several times and plan to do so again soon.  In my opinion, Fort Wilderness is one of the most fun-filled resorts on property.  There are literally so many activities and fun ways to spend your time there, that you can almost (ok, I said 'almost') never actually leave and visit the parks. Some of our favorite activities are the Chip & Dale Campfire and Sing Along, Mickey's Backyard BBQ, horseback riding and the carriage rides.  (I better stop, or I'll run out of room!)   The Fort has a huge following of avid campers and visitors, who vacation here year after year.  At night, you'll see large groups of very happy families getting together for cook-outs at their sites.  The cabins are perfect for a family as there is a full-sized bed, bunks and another murphy-style bed that sleeps two in the living room. 

    The fully-stocked kitchen and grill on the porch will absolutely enable you to prepare meals on-site.  In addition, you'll be able to prepare and keep snacks fresh that you can take along to the parks to save on concessions.

    The value resorts are also wonderful, fun-filled properties, but if I had to chose, I'd say, go for the Fort!
