    We're looking at Fort Wilderness Cabins for our Fall 2009 trip. I need information on the cabins and the surrounding areas. How far away are the transportation stops? Are they a good value? Any where close to shop so you can actually use the kitchen?

    Such a coincidence to get your question! I just finished booking a cabin for our family for May at Fort Wilderness! This will be the first time we have stayed in one and I can't wait.  It is a totally different experience then a resort hotel and you have at your finger tips many new and fun things to enjoy. 

    There are three internal buses that run through-out  Fort Wilderness to enable you to reach the recreation and stores and dining facilities. You can also rent a golf cart to go from one point to the next within the area. Rates change but they have been running about $47 for daily rental or $12 for hourly rentals.  To reach all points beyond Fort Wilderness besides the Magic Kingdom you can catch a bus at the Outpost Depot.  To reach the Magic Kingdom you take the boat launch.

    There are two places to buy your basic groceries within  Fort Wilderness: the Meadow and the Settlement Trading Posts.   There are also full dining restaurants as well as carry-out opportunities.

    The value is based on your needs and what works best for your family. The ability to have a kitchen is very enticing to many families to cut costs while on vacation.

    Fort Wilderness is unique and a quiet refuge from the crowds. You will feel like you are in a different place when you return to the peacefulness of your cabin.  I know friends who said that once they tried it they knew they would never want anything early morning wake-up calls from excited children running up and down halls.  To read a great description of this accommodation and all of its unique dining and recreation options go to and type in the search box at the top, Fort Wilderness fact sheet. 

    Good luck with all of your decisions! I am excited about our own trip there in May.
