Staying at Disney`s Fort Wilderness goes beyond all the benefits of being inside the Disney complex.
On this post
There are huts there that fit up to 6 people and will make your experience something magical.
As much as it is a hotel with a high price, around U$300/night, it is worth it for the experience of staying in a cabin in the forest and with several animals passing by your door.
With a unique structure, you will be "living" in a wooden house in the forest. These “houses” really feel like home, different from the hotels that give that feeling of something passing.
How is the Fort Wilderness hotel
As soon as you enter, you will notice that it is a very different disney hotel, with a natural look and the cast members' clothing is very farmhouse style.
Upon entering the Forest, the hotel becomes a very cozy place, where those with more energy can enjoy everything there, in addition to marathons in the parks.
The cabins and camping sites are divided into small groups, the “loops” that follow the main streets that run from one end of the resort to the other.
Yes, in addition to the “cabins” there are other spaces intended for people who will set up their tents or park their trailers.
at one point of Hotel there is the reception, where you will check in/check out and the main bus stop, at the other end there is a small area with a supermarket, stable, parking for golf carts, a place where you can book boats or other activities offered in the resort, restaurant and concert hall.
It's common to see people walking around Fort Wilderness with golf carts, and you can rent them for around 60$ a day.
It is limited to the use of your car from the hotel entrance to your loop, where your cabin or camp is and the other facilities of Fort Wilderness must be done by internal bus transport, bicycles, golf carts or walking.
What are Fort Wilderness cabins like?
The famous “cabins” are very different from the chalets found around, there is really a wooden house, super equipped and with an air conditioning system and / or heater.
In each cabin there is everything you need for a visit to Orlando: a bedroom with TV, double bed and a bunk bed, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, living room with table, TV and sofa bed and a super cute porch with barbecue and table. picnic, remember that your car is parked in front of your hut. It's not too much?
The kitchen is complete with refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, stove and all utensils to make and enjoy your meals.
At the end of each “loop”, as we say, there is a set of cabins, there is a bus stop and this bus runs throughout the inside of Fort Wilderness, connecting the two ends of the Resort.
From the end of the resort, where there is the “beach”, it is possible to go by boat to the Magic Kingdom! It's a unique experience to leave your hotel's pier and be just a few minutes away from Disney's most beloved park.
As the huts are well equipped with a super kitchen, it is common for guests to want to cook “at home”.
For those who want a different cooking program, it's super cool to enjoy the bonfire at Tico e Teco to roast the marshmellow that are sold in this area, in addition to dancing with the characters and watching a Disney movie by moonlight.
Inside Fort Wilderness there is Trai`s End, with a wide variety of food and food that reminds us of the interior of the United States.
There you will have options like ribs, corn bread and baked potato, among other super delicious dishes. Another option is the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, which is an old Disney musical.
There's even a video of this meal at the end of this post! But in advance, the food is sensational and the show is extremely fun!

Do you like horse? There is a stable, the Tri-Circle-D Ranch where you can rent horses or buggies to ride the paths of Fort Wilderness. There are also pony options for young children.
If you like contact with nature and want to go fishing, there are ways to do it in the resort's various lakes or on an excursion. If you have the equipment, you pay nothing to practice. But remember, fishing at Disney is sport!
It goes without saying that all the other benefits of being at a resort disney are also included here!
Worth staying at the Fort Wilderness
Because it is a complete hotel, a true summer house, which will provide comfort, adventure, contact with nature and entertain both adults and children.
It is completely safe, and even though there are more remote cabins, access is strictly controlled at reception and the doors only open with the guests' MagicBand.
Even being in a Forest atmosphere, with animals and activities of a great Resort, the Disney atmosphere is present in every corner, already at the hotel you enter the magical universe of Mickey and his friends.
