Photo Tour of the Bath and Back Bedroom of a Cabin at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

THE BATH AND BACK BEDROOM IN THE CABINS AT DISNEY’S FORT WILDERNESS RESORT

This page continues the photo tour of a Cabins at Fort Wilderness that began on this page that covers the kitchen, living room, and dining area.

THE BACK HALL AND BATH IN THE CABINS AT DISNEY’S FORT WILDERNESS RESORT

On the other side of the kitchen there’s a hall leading to the bath and back bedroom (see the floor plan at the top of the page).

On the right you will see what used to be a half closet, with mechanicals below. This was locked on my visit in March 2020, and that, the absence of the old hot water heater on the back outside wall, and the much better hot water supply in the Cabin, together make me think that a replacement hot water system is in here now.

On the right is the bath.


The toilet is in the back…

…with a tub shower combo on the other side.

Tub toiletries are on the back wall.

The shower head is lesser than what you will find in more recently renovated rooms at Disney World–even in value resorts.

The bath is adequately sized, but unlike those at the other Disney World moderate resorts, is not divided into two spaces, and also has only one sink, not the two you’ll find at the other moderates.

While it does have a nice set of drawers, the lack of a divided bath and second sink makes it less handy for even four-person families than the baths at the other moderates. (The second sink in the kitchen is some help on this matter.)

The hair dryer and a bit more storage.

In the past, the biggest issue with the bath in the Cabins at Fort Wilderness was not enough hot water. This, however, is much improved, and I no longer view hot water supply as a negative to these cabins.

THE BACK BEDROOM IN THE CABINS AT DISNEY’S FORT WILDERNESS RESORT

The back bedroom has one queen sized bed, and a couple of bunk beds.

The queen bed has one side tight against the wall, meaning that if two are sleeping here, one has to exit over the other, or via the foot of the bed.

Under Bed Storage The Renovated Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort from yourfirstvisit.net

There’s space under the bed where smaller suitcases might fit.

The bunk beds have mattresses 66 inches long by 39 inches wide, but, because of the railings, sleep shorter than that.

Note the small bedside table…

…with two available drawers between the beds.

Other storage in this room is along the entry wall–note the small TV.

Under the TV you’ll find four smallish-drawers…

…and next to the TV you’ll find a small closet, with a safe in the back.

The safe is quite large–my book is 6 inches by nine inches.

Above the safe, on a shelf above the closet rod, are more linens.

Left of the closet, what looks like another cabinet is actually an enclosure around utilities. The counter-top is usable, and on the short wall above it there’s a mirror. There’s also another mirror behind the door from the hall.

An oddity to these back bedrooms that always troubles me a bit is the second door to the porch you’ll find in this space.

This door–in this outside view, the door on the left–is secured by a deadbolt, which makes it easy to leave unlocked. If kids are in this bedroom, and the hall door to the bedroom is closed, there’s some potential for the kids to get outside without the parents knowing…

Overall, I love these cabins. But they have an awkward bath set up for large families, this egress issue, and the kitchen is not quite as fully configured as it could be.

Thank you so much for your review of the refurbed cabin! Because of your review we changed our reservation this summer and are staying in a cabin for the first time. I think we’ll probably have the kids sleep on the pull out in the main area and keep the bedroom for ourselves. Is it possible to move that queen bed over a little so it’s not right against the wall or is everything bolted down?

Lisa, I did not check whether it is movable, but my strong guess would be no! Have fun in your cabin and come back and let me know what you think!

Dave-

First, thank you for all of your time and effort regarding WDW trip planning. I have ordered your 2018 from Amazon. Our family hasn’t been to WDW in three years after going annually for 20+ years. We will be staying in the Cabins for the first time this September. I just need to know if there is a vacuum with a hose attachment in the cabins? I use space bags to pack and just need to know which bags to use. Thank you again.

Regards,
Megan

Hi Megan, and thanks! There Is a vacuum (in the hall closet), but I don’t remember if there was a hose or not. My photos don’t show one, although it may be on the other, un-photographed, side…
