I had always wanted to stay in the Campground with Nadia, but I was still a little scared to camp in a tent back then (this was before our first camping trip). So I booked the Cabin right away, it was the last day of the discount! I had also purchased two 3-day Park Hopper Tickets with the water park option. My Chase Disney reward dollars that I saved up ended up covering the price of the tickets. - Awesome.
The Cabin at Fort Wilderness comes with its own deck, picnic bench and grill. The inside sleeps six. There is a bedroom with a double bed and a bunk bed. You have a bathroom; A kitchen with an oven, microwave, full size fridge with freezer. The kitchen also includes pots and pans, utensils to use, and of course the beloved dishwasher. The little living room area has a TV with a DVD player and there is a Murphy bed.

When you arrive, you check in at the Fort Wilderness Outpost. Disney had a new early check in option that you can do from home on the computer, so when you arrive your key is already waiting for you. I gave it a try and it was a good option. We were handed our maps and key right away.
Then we got in our car and drove to our cabin. We unloaded everything and put the food away. I also never had to get back in the car to drive until the day we left!

When you stay at Fort Wilderness, you have an option whether you want to take the bus or the boat to the Magic Kingdom. We prefer the boat ride. It is very scenic. You can also ride the "resort" boat or bus back to the resort. I did not have to use the car at all. For the other parks, you would need to use bus transportation.
Also remember, you are able to watch the water pageant at night from the beach.
