Room With A View: The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

While I was growing up, summertime with my family always involved an awesome camping trip complete with yummy barbeque meals, nature walks, and of course, a nightly campfire to tell stories and share s’mores!

So this summer, what better way to relive and recreate those camping memories than by staying in one of the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort? Fort Wilderness is nestled among 750 acres of pine and cypress forest right in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort with woodland trails, hearty home-style eatery options, exciting activities and entertainment, and these private cabins are a great for those who want to ‘rough it’ in comfort.

I visited Wilderness Cabin 118, just steps away from the Settlement area. The cabin is tucked away in the resort’s #100 loop, which is made up mostly of campsites, except for two cabins. What a unique spot that’s perfect for being close to so many of the recreation activities like horseback riding, or dining such as Trail’s End Restaurant!

Each cabin sleeps up to six guests and has a living room, bedroom, full bathroom, modern kitchen, private patio, (with wooden rocking chairs!) and a charcoal grill.

There’s rustic charm everywhere you look–with nods to wildlife on the lampshades and nature-inspired patterns on the curtains–and you can enjoy the best of the great outdoors, but with all the comforts of home.


  • Thanks for the report and pictures, Allison!

    Quick question: can the general public stay in cabins #118 or #120 in loop 100? I’ve read conflicting reports online. The reason I’m asking is that we are trying to find BOTH a cabin and a campsite in the same loop to accommodate our whole family.

    Thanks for your help!

  • We have stayed at the cabins for each of our trips the last 7 yrs and LOVE them!!! Are all the cabins getting the rocking chairs! It would be a nice addition to the picnic tables they have….and more comfortable! We always stay in the 2800 loop! Walking distance to the buses! Loved the new updates! Great article!!!

  • Hi Allison, have all the cabins been replaced (or updated)? Or just some?

    I can definitely tell the cabin in the photos is updated from the last time I stayed there


    • Hi John, yes, all of the cabins have been updated and look the same as the one featured here. They look great!

  • Our first Disney vacation we stayed in a cabin on the Willow Way loop in the 80’s. We are DVC members now, so even though we don’t stay at the campground anymore, we still make a visit to the campground whenever we can… and will be staying in a tent the first week of December for old-time’s sake. Still hands-down our favorite resort on property!

  • There used to be a pull-down bed in the living room where it looks like the TV is now, so do the cabins now fit fewer people?

    • Great question, Janet. The sofa you see in the living room is a double sleeper sofa, so the cabin still fits up to six adults. Happy trails!

  • To Eric Breuer: I don’t think the cabins are called Room with a View, I think the series of articles highlighting resorts is called Room with a View. I wish we had thought to stay here before when we went with 4 adults and a child, we had 2 connected rooms at the French Quarter. I do love the French Quarter but this looks lovely as well.

  • We always had FUN ! at Fort Wilderness when we were in our RUSTIC faze of life. We started with towing a pop-up camper then finally discovered the cabins. The kids will simply “LOVE IT” for there is tons to discover. Got to find the left over rails from the train they use to run, I wish that WDW would consider their return. Suggestion: From Fort Wilderness to Wilderness Lodge, just a thought. Cabins were always cozy for the 5 of us, transportation always a breeze especially taking the boats to the Magic Kingdom. Back in the day River Country was also “SUPER” another thought how about it’s return ?

  • We stayed her in 2005 and loved it. There were 4 of us and we had plenty of room. We took food and drinks with us to help save some money. We saw deer and even aardvarks at night. It wasn’t noisy and we had a great vacation. The first night we had dinner at the resort. It was Rootin’ Tootin’ something. There was a bus that took us there.

    • So glad you had a good time here, Staci! It sounds like it was a fun vacation. I hope you can come back and visit again!

  • The cabin looks great. Are they called Room With A View ? If so, why didn’t the video take a few seconds to show us the VIEW ??

  • Hi. Did u request that cabin? Did u fnd it very noisy in that area? Liked ur article
