    Hi Jason,

    I am so glad that we can help you with your Disney planning needs. I definitely have the answer for your Fort Wilderness question as we have stayed there twice within the last few months and both times had a car with us.

    Guests are welcome to drive their cars onto the property and there is a parking spot just outside each of the cabins. You are welcome to use your car to leave the resort and travel to the parks or anywhere else outside of the resort that you may be headed. You will not be able to drive your car to the Settlement or Meadow Trading Post area. Both of these locations is where you will find the restaraunt, general stores, dinner shows, campfire, movies, pool and more. There is no parking spots near these two areas and they are designed to be reached without your car. There are internal buses that run from the cabin bus stops to these two spots and we found the buses convenient and plentiful. You are also able to rent a golf cart for approximately $55 a day. There are a number of spots to park a cart at the Settlement and Meadow Posts if you decide to do this. We also saw a number of guests bring their bicycles with them and use these to move around the property.

    I think you will find a number if easy and quick choices to get you around the campgrounds even without the use of your car. Hope you have a great time!
