    We are staying at the FW cabins, arriving Feb 6 2012. Do the cabins have outdoor lawn chairs or lounges? Are there fire pits at the cabin sites?

    Howdy Tara! How exciting that your family will soon be embarking on an incredible adventure to one of my favorite Walt Disney World destinations: Fort Wilderness!  I must say I'm a bit jealous!  You're in for the time of your life and the fun is right around the corner!

    Unfortunately, lawn chairs and lounges are not available at Fort Wilderness. Each Wilderness Cabin has an outdoor wooden deck complete with large picnic table and charcoal grill.  My family has enjoyed many a night under the stars at our picnic table and have even cooked up a camp meal or two on that grill!  Be sure to stop by either Meadows Trading Post or the Outpost to stock up on rations and surplus for your wilderness expedition.

    Fires are not permitted at Fort Wilderness unless they are in a fully enclosed portable fire pit (which you would have to provide), and even then, Central Florida is commonly in observance of a burn ban so I would not recommend bringing one for fear that you'd never be permitted to use it.

    Every evening (weather permitting) Fort Wilderness plays host to a fabulous campfire program with Sing-A-Long entertainment by Chip and Dale.  Be sure to grab a blanket and some marshmallows and head over to join in the fun.  After the campfire presentation, the fire rings will remain lit and a Disney movie will be shown on the big screen under the stars!  My family loves to show up in our jammies, then my daughter and I snuggle on a blanket watching the movie while Dad roasts marshmallows for us!

    Congrats on your visit to "The Fort."  I just know your family will create SOOO many priceless memories on this adventure!  Please write back if I can help again! -Amanda
