    We will be staying at Fort Wilderness but I am wondering if we will be able to use the amenities at the other resorts as well. Such as the pools, spas and what not. Thanks for your help!!


    The rules are different for different amenities. Here are some of the ones related to what you have asked;

    Pools: No. Only the guests of that resort can use that resort's pool. Some of the more popular resort pools (Stormalong Bay) were getting overcrowded, and people who were staying at the Beach and Yacht Club resorts couldn't even use their own pool. So you have to stick to the pools at Fort Wilderness.

    Spas: Yes. The spas of Disney resorts are open to any paying guests.

    Child Activity Centers: Yes. These can only be used by Disney resort guests, but they can be from ANY Disney resort. So you could use, for example, the Cubs Den at the Wilderness Lodge.

    Really, it is expected that you would enjoy many of the amenities, like marinas, spas, restaurants, etc. from other Disney resorts. The pools are just one of a few that are a bit more restricted. If you have other specific examples, please send me another question and I would be glad to address them.

    Have a magical vacation!
