    Thanks for the great information you all provide! We will be staying at Fort Wilderness Cabins the 2nd week of June. Any advice on the quickest way to parks from FW?


    Our family stays at Fort Wilderness at least once year if not more. Without a doubt, you'll want to take Disney transportation via boat to the Magic Kingdom. Keep in mind that you cannot drive your car to the marina from the cabins as there is no parking, so you'll want to catch one of the fort's internal buses to the Settlement and then walk over to the marina.

    As for the other parks, if you have a car, I recommend driving to all three parks: Animal Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Epcot. First, you won't have to walk, rent a golf cart, or take an internal bus to the Outpost bus stop nor wait for a bus to one of these parks. In my experience, this can save you up to 45 minutes one way and parking at the theme parks is free. If you don't bring your car, consider renting one. The cost to rent a golf cart for the length of your stay at the fort to use to drive to the marina and to the Outpost can actually be more than renting an economy car at the airport.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
