    We are a family of 5 with 3 teenage/young adult boys; considering a deluxe resort (lower end) or Ft. Wilderness Cabins. What do you recommend? We are concerned with transportation times to the park as we are coming in June. Thanks for the help.

    Hi Teri!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    This is a great question.  If you have your own car, or a rental car, then I think both are great ideas.  However, if you are relying on Disney transportation and you are concerned with the time it takes to get somewhere then I would definitely go with another resort besides Fort Wilderness.

    Fort Wilderness is a wonderful resort, especially for those guests who love the great outdoors, but it is a huge resort.  It has its own internal bus system.  To get anywhere besides the Magic Kingdom, guests have to take the internal bus to a transfer point and then transfer to a bus going to Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, etc.  It can really make travel time long.

    The best resorts with short travel time are generally a Disney Deluxe Resort.  However, Pop Century and the Art of Animation also have reduced transportation times and they are both Disney Value Resorts.  That is because there is only one bus stop at both of those resorts and they do not share buses with any other resorts.

    This is a difficult decision.  Good luck and please write back with more questions!
