    We are staying at the Disney Fort Wilderness in a cabin. After looking online, I have read some complaints about traveling around the property to catch the Disney transporation to the parks. It is much bigger than they suggested. Is there this true?

    Hi Jodie! There are three internal bus routes for the Fort Wilderness property.  Depending on where your cabin is located will dictate how much time is needed to be on the internal bus.  These busses take you to the Settlement Depot where you can then catch busses to the other parks, water parks, and Downtown Disney. You have the opportunity to catch a water taxi to the Magic Kingdom from the marina.

    Many of the larger resorts on property are spread out and guests are not necessarily next to the amenities of the main buildings.  Guests often catch their resort bus to take them to their resort dining, shops etc. since they do not want to make the long walk.  The campgrounds are also spread out and very similar although the campgrounds do cover more area then most other resorts.  If you choose not to walk to the Settlement Depot you have the option to wait for the "local" bus.  You can also rent a golf cart for your stay but they can be pricey and you are encouraged to reserve them ahead since there is a limited number.

    The guests who enjoy the peace and serenity of the campgrounds are willing to give up the convenience of being right next to a park or amenities.  It all comes down to a personal choice of what is more important to make your stay the best possible for you.  Disney does its best to provide for every guest!
