The Cabins at Fort Wilderness occupy a huge area. To get an idea of the size, I’ve included a map:
We were in cabin 2768, which is very close to the main road, and one of the many bus stops throughout the grounds. It is also a fairly short walk to the Outpost Depot, which is where you get a bus to Downtown Disney and all the parks except the Magic Kingdom, which is reached by boat.
To the right is the living room. There is a Murphy bed, which is where my wife and I slept.
This is very comfortable, perhaps more comfortable than other resorts beds. It is a double however, so some may find it a little small.
One of the things I got the most feedback about was the bus service. Many suggested we rent a car, but our friends decided that wasn’t necessary. The bus service was the best of any other resort we’ve stayed at, with the exception of one late evening, after returning via boat from the Magic Kingdom, when we had to wait about 20 minutes for a bus. Even the internal bus service was often arriving just as we would approach both our local bus stop or the main Outpost stop. On only a couple of occasions was a bus not at the ready, and we opted to simply walk either to the main depot, or our cabin.
The pools, we did not try, but our friends enjoyed the heated quiet pool and hot tub.
We would absolutely stay at the cabins again.
