Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground VIP Top Tips



This section is sponsored by the Disney experts at The Magic for Less Travel, Authorized Disney Vacation Planner

If you have more than two adults and are staying in the Cabins at Fort Wilderness, consider requesting a loop and cabin close to a convenience station. You will have access to additional bathroom and shower facilities which makes getting ready in the morning much easier! Laundry facilities are there, too! Remember, though, room requests aren’t guaranteed, but Disney will do its best to honor them.

Want convenience? Rent a golf cart during your stay. Not only can you get around the resort property more easily, but you can drive and park it at the bus stop to the parks. No need to rely on the timing of internal transportation, although we found we never waited more than five minutes or so for an internal bus. Just remember to bring something fun to identify your cart among all the others!

If you want convenience, a car or cart rental is nearly a must. If you don’t have either, plan to have patience. You will still have fun without a rental, but you have to allow extra travel time to/from the parks.

There is a grocery delivery service at the cabins for a small fee.

Storage is a little tricky for seven large suitcases, so be prepared if you’re bringing many large bags!

Quick Service at the Meadow Snack Bar closes early, so getting a late night bite can be tricky if you don’t have your own supplies.
