What Readers Are Saying About The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort

The campgrounds at Fort Wilderness are truly amazing. The hype for the people that come yearly and decorate is TRUE! Rent that golf cart and spend an evening there - you won't be disappointed.

We always like staying in the cabins, they offer a welcome respite from the parks. Our cabin was clean.

I so appreciated coming back to peace and quiet after a long day in the hustle and bustle of the theme parks. I wish we had planned more time to enjoy the resort itself.

Rooms

Most guests are crazy about the cabins - they're larger than a standard hotel room, and you can't beat the setting. We've stayed here many times.

  • Bunk beds
  • Double-Size Sleeper Sofa
  • Four chairs
  • Dresser with drawers
  • Full-length mirror
  • Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi)
  • Flat-panel TV
  • Full-size refrigerator
  • In-room washer and dryer
  • Coffee maker and starter supply of coffee pods
  • Full set of kitchen and cooking utensils, including flatware, pots, pans, plates and bowls.
  • Ironing board and iron
  • Hair dryer
  • Digital thermostat
  • In-room safe
  • Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and bar soap

These prefab log cabins are warm and homey, but the stem-to-stern interior wood paneling and smallish windows make for rather dark accommodations at night.

Dining

It's a hike to most dining locations. There's also a general store, a lounge, full-service restaurant, and dinner theater.

Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue Hoop-Dee-Doo is the longest-running show at Walt Disney World and a nostalgic favorite for many families. If you’ve ever thought Country Bear Jamboree would benefit from free-flowing beer and wine and barbecue, this is the show for you. The songs are folksy and the humor is corny, but it is so earnest and charming that it's hard not to enjoy yourself. The prices shown here are for the least-expensive seats - those in Category 3. If desired, you can pay a bit more for better seating.

P & J's Southern Takeout To-go quick service restaurant with barbecued ribs, fried chicken, and burgers.

Trail's End Restaurant Trail's End operated as a buffet until April 2023, re-opening in July 2023 as a quick-service restaurant. Trail’s End offers family-sized entrees like pizzas topped with brisket and other meats, racks of pork ribs, whole chickens, burgers and other barbecued favorites.

Crockett's Tavern Howdy there, partners! Looking for a place to hitch up the horse and belly up to the bar before you head back out on the dusty trail? Stop on by Crockett’s Tavern, serving the finest ale this side of Bay Lake! Fill up your saddlebags, shine your boots, maybe even partake in a hootenanny, but please, no gunplay in the saloon. As fun as it would be to continue the Old West shtick for this entire review, that was probably enough. We are, of course, speaking of Crockett’s Tavern, located in the only place at Walt Disney World where you really feel like you are in a simpler time: Fort Wilderness. The massive Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground is quiet, peaceful, and seemingly a world unto its own. The Pioneer Hall area evokes a town center from an old west town with its log-built structures and horse ranch. Nestled in this town center is Crockett’s Tavern, obviously named for American hero (and Disney television hero) Davy Crockett. It was because of Davy that people can wear a raccoon on their head and not look completely insane, so we should be thankful just for that. The tavern is made primarily of natural wood and glass, making it a bright, cozy space with ample seating at several tables. Sitting inside cannot be recommended at Crockett’s however, because out on the covered porch nearby are a handful of rocking chairs. If those oversized rocking chairs are unoccupied, it is your duty as an American (or a visitor to America) to enjoy your drink rocking on the porch. Specialty cocktails and drinks are available, including a handful of domestic beers and wines. Lounge-style snacks are on the food menu, but there's nothing too substantial. You'll finder pulled pork sliders, a charcuterie board, and chicken bites with a selection of dipping sauces. It is a little hard to recommend a special trip just to visit Crockett’s Tavern, but the instantly calming atmosphere of Fort Wilderness itself is something that is always recommended. If you decide to mosey on over to the campground, grabbing a beer and rocking some time away on the porch looking out towards Bay Lake can melt away any vacation- related stresses. Just remember, no gunplay in the saloon.
