A Peek Inside the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground

Take a tour Inside the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground with me.

The first time my family thought of visiting Disney World, we seriously considered a stay at the campground. I really wanted to take a peek inside the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. They certainly looked cute and cozy, would afford us a bit more privacy over a hotel room, and would allow us to cook our own meals which would definitely save us money.


In the end, we opted to stay offsite on that first trip, which worked really well at the time. But when we planned to return a second time, staying at a Disney property was high on our priority list. We considered several but in the end opted to stay at the campground.

I can honestly say our visit to the Disney Fort Wilderness Campground was a memorable stay, but not entirely enjoyable. When I made reservations for our trip, I reserved a campsite, but thanks to our unruly neighbors, we were upgraded to a cabin.

We actually didn’t check in to our cabin until the night was nearly over. We were very tired, but the blogger in me managed to snap a couple quick pictures before falling fast asleep so I could offer my readers a peek inside the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Yes, I’m dedicated.

This isn’t the best picture, but does show what the inside of the cabin looked like as we entered the cabin. You can see the kitchen and living area, that also serves as a second bedroom.

The living room has a Murphy bed that pulls down out of the wall. When I was a child, I thought a Murphy bed would be so cool, as an adult, I thought it’d be super uncomfortable. Either that’s not the case, or I was so tired that I could have slept on a picnic table and gotten a good night’s sleep, as long as the neighbors were quiet anyway.

The cabin wasn’t huge, but it’s laid out well and maximizes the space that is available.

The kitchen table isn’t huge, but it offers bench seating with three chairs. There is also a smaller table across the living room for smaller guests.

The kitchen cabinets offer plenty of storage so you can easily show up with a week’s worth of food. You’ll find a full-refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher. The cabin may look like it’s in the wilderness, but you won’t exactly be roughing it.

You’ll also find pots and pans, table service for six, flatware, dish cloths, pot holders and dishwashing liquid.

Here’s a glimpse down the hallway that leads to the bathroom and bedroom.

The bathroom holds plenty of towels and complimentary toiletries like you’d find in a hotel.

You’ll find a full size bed, a set of bunk beds (with safety rails on the top bunk), night table, dresser, closet and another TV.

My kids loved the towel creation that awaited them.

I hope you enjoyed your peek inside the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. I think under different circumstances, my family of five (with teens) would really have enjoyed our stay in the cabin. It’s a shame that wasn’t the case on this trip.

Thanks so much for the pictures! Since we camped, we didn't get to see the cabins, but I will add your link to my page so that others can see the inside of the cabins.

I have stayed at the campground over the course of my life at least a dozen times. Each experience was always memorable. Unfortunately people can ruin an experience by acting foolish & inconsiderate...It's ashame you had bad camping neighbors. Disney however, in my opinion, does a great job at correcting those unpleasant situations. The campground has that second home feeling to me and I can't wait to start taking my own family there someday!

Thanks for the photos. We visited Disney twice about 15 years ago. If we go back I really want to stay in one of the cabins. Like you said, a little more privacy and the possibility of cooking your own meals. Blessings Diane Protection Status
