Disney’s Fort Wilderness Cabins are Becoming DVC Properties

Recommended Posts




The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort are becoming the next Disney Vacation Club property at Walt Disney World Resort. The current cabins at the resort will be torn down and rebuilt as refreshed hideaways. This project between Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Vacation Club is part of the overall refreshment of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and is projected to open in 2024. There will be no impact on the campground sites at the resort, but the cabins will close in phases as the project begins.

More than 350 new cabins will replace the existing cabins nestled across the 750 acres of scenic woodlands. The cabins will be built with an eye toward the environment. That means utilizing the footprint of the existing cabins instead of developing more land and taking advantage of more energy-efficient features. Each proposed, stand-alone cabin offers spacious accommodations, sleeping up to six adults, and features a bedroom, bathroom, living room, full kitchen, and private patio. Expect them to feel very similar in layout, but refreshed. A select number of cabins are also expected to be dog-friendly.

The current cabins are rustic and feel like they belong at the resort and the new cabins will capture that same charm while being updated with new interiors and allowing more natural light inside. Disney says, “Design concepts offer a fresh take on the current cabin experience and are inspired by the resort’s idyllic setting, while also paying homage to the resort’s unique culture and heritage through the magic of Disney storytelling.”

As with all Disney Vacation Club resorts, the proposed cabins will be open for reservations to all guests. This means you don’t have to be a DVC member in order to enjoy a resort you may have loved for years and years. However, it is based on availability. More details on the project including the start of sales and rental bookings will be released at a later day.

Enhancements are also expected for the resort pool and walking trails. Trail’s End Restaurant just closed as part of the enhancements which will expand the dining experience at the resort. Crockett’s Tavern is also going to be part of the enhancement process, but more news on all enhancements will be coming in the future.

Assuming the project is completed, this will be the 17the Disney Vacation Club Resort and seemingly solidifies there’s no chance Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge will be built at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

Nice find.  Interestingly, all these companies touting the environment and sustainability seem for to forget the best thing to do is to leave things as they are instead of making more waste and producing more "things"

Having just been at the fort, it's still a great place, so here's to hoping this actually drives some improvements.
