Disney Vacation Club has recently announced another project coming to the Florida campus that will expand its offerings for the first time to the beloved Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. The iconic vacation ownership brand is to refurbish more than 350 of the property’s existing cabins and create The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort – A DVC Resort, which is projected to open in 2024 and will become the 17th DVC property.
The cabin renovations will keep the structures’ existing footprints and will include a bedroom, a bathroom, a living area, a full kitchen, and a patio. They will sleep up to six adults and some cabins will also be pet-friendly.
The design concepts for these cabins will be inspired by the property’s beautiful setting on 750 acres of pines and cypress forest, all while bringing the finishes and furnishing into the 21st century.
In addition to the cabin renovations, other areas of the Fort Wilderness Resort property will also see improvements, including the pool, walking trails, and new dining experiences. Recently, the Trail’s End sit-down restaurant was closed for renovations to transition the eatery into a grab-and-go-styled marketplace for guests to grab food quickly before heading out to the parks.
Fort Wilderness Resort is a classic Disney World resort property that had been largely untouched for many years but has always been a favorite for those who love the nostalgia it offers with its pioneer theming and access to the great outdoors.
On-site, there are a number of unique experiences that guests can enjoy including electric golf cart rentals, carriage rides, pony rides, wagon rides, an archery experience, fishing, canoe and kayak rentals, bike rentals, playgrounds, and much more. The property also includes some more standard but equally as appealing amenities like arcades, jogging trails, two swimming pools, two on-site dining options, and sports courts. Not to mention, it is one of the few Disney resorts that are dog-friendly.
Fort Wilderness Resort also has several popular activities scheduled like the fun Hoop-Dee-Doo Music Revue show, movie nights under the stars, and Chip ‘N’ Dales Campfire Sing-A-Long.
