    We stayed at the ASM family suites last time and I was looking into Fort Wilderness Cabins. Do you really have to take a bus to get to the buses that take you to the parks? Also, I am definitely not a camping person , would it be hard staying there?

    Hi Andria,

    I am completely sold on the amenities and beauty of the FOrt Wilderness area. We have stayed in the cabins for the first time this year,and I enjoyed them so much, that we made a return visit just a few months later. Trust me, we are not campers either and were amazed and how nice and homey the cabins were.

    There is a bedroom with a full size bed as well as bunk beds. The living room area has a very comfortable Murphy bed and is attached to a small kitchen and dining area equipped with a full set of appliances as well as cooking utensils, plates, silverware, glasses and just about anything else you need to prepare a meal. The full size indoor bathroom is roomy and has a large vanity and great shower. There is a small patio attached to each cabin with a grill for some outdoor burgers and dogs.

    The resort offers a large selection of amenities like carriage rides, horseback riding, restaraunt, playground, interactive pool area and a great spot for the nightly campfire (with Chip and Dale) and a free movie of the night.

    You will need to use an internal bus to transport you to the front of the resort, where you will then transfer to a separate Disney bus to the parks. There is a boat offered for trips to Magic Kingdom, but again an internal bus is need to get to the dock area. Golf carts are available for rent (approximately $55 a day) and can be driven and parked at the bus locations if you prefer. You can also bring your own cart or bikes to use if you are driving in.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how often the internal buses ran and how easy they were to use. At no point during our stay did I feel the system was delaying our park fun. I think your family will love the peacefulness and beauty of the resort and all it offers. I am glad we gave it a chance and will make many return visits in the future.
