    Thinking of staying in the FWC is their a "better" section of cabins to request. My husband is concerned about transportation to & from the parks, can you please explain? Thanks

    Hi Michelle! I leave Wednesday for a stay at the Fort Wilderness cabins.  I was discussing the thought of requesting a cabin today with my husband and we opted not to as there really isn't one loop better then another.  If you want to be as close to the bus stop then make that request.  You can do this when doing your on line check-in or you can call 2-4 days before you arrive.

    There is an internal bus system that will take you just about anywhere you might want to go within Fort Wilderness.  This will also take you to the main bus depot at the front of the resort where you can catch buses to all other areas of the property.  We take the next step and also reserve golf carts so we are actually never using the internal buses but simply use the golf carts to get around. There is parking for these at all locations but it is an added expense.

    Whenever I have used the buses from Fort Wilderness I have been pleasantly surprised that they never seem to be full and crowded. I think many guests come with their own cars and so are not using the buses like you would find at the other resorts.  It is very easy to get to EPCOT (minutes), Hollywood Studios (18 minutes), and Animal Kingdom (24 minutes) parks and also Downtown Disney. To reach the Magic Kingdom it is a quick and easy 16 minute ride that brings you directly to the front of the park!  You can also reach EPCOT by taking the boat to the Contemporary resort and catching the monorail.

    Fort Wilderness is a magical hidden secret where you can ride horses and ponies, visit with all the Disney horses in their home stable, enjoy the Hoop De Doo Revue dinner show or Mickey's Backyard Barbecue, take a carriage or hayride, fish, boat, rent a canoe or kayak, try your luck at archery, swim in the two pools, and enjoy a nightly movie and campfire.  It is so quiet you will forget you are at Disney and will enjoy coming "home" to something less stressful!
