I have never stayed in the Cabins, but 99% of the time we stay at FW in our Travel Trailer. I have stayed at every resort except for OKW and Contemporary/BLT and would pick FW over any of them at any time.
There is just something about that place- kinda magical, very peaceful, very friendly and lots to do. Its a great place for down time and it has a great feel! Very Disney, but not at the same time!
For me there always has to be enough time at FW and Park time.
Call me spoiled, but I will only now stay Deluxe or at FW. I just don’t have the patience for the Values and only have a little patience for the Moderates.
Transportation is not a big deal at all! The best part is being able to take a boat to MK.
We have always stayed in walking distance to the marina, if not we bring our bikes.
Give it a try, I bet you will be very happy!
