Nestled on 750 acres of pine and cypress forest, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground evokes the timeless beauty of the American frontier. Teeming with such wildlife as deer, ducks, armadillos and rabbits, the Resort welcomes you to delight in scenic woodland trails, exciting pool areas, rootin’ tootin’ entertainment and hearty country eats. Here are our top 5 reasons you should choose Fort Wilderness for your next Walt Disney World vacation.
If you are traveling with a larger family, looking for amenities like a full kitchen and living area, and/or love the great outdoors, then the cabins at Fort Wilderness are for you! They sleep up to six people, are on their own lots (meaning you don’t have to worry about noisy neighbors after a long night at the parks), and fall into the Moderate category for Walt Disney World Resort hotels. All of the cabins also come with bunk beds (which are a hit with small kids) as well as a queen bed and a pull-down bed in the living room.
Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort is also a campground for guests that like to camp or stay in an RV. The lots can accommodate vehicles of up to 45 feet in length and up to 10 guests are allowed to stay in 1 plot. These plots are usually a great value as prices are typically under $100 a night for those want to pitch a tent to slightly over $100 for a full RV hook-up.
