Disney has announced that cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will undergo a major update to become a new Disney Vacation Club property. This is part of broader improvement projects to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, including a proposed pool, enhanced walking trails, and new dining areas at Trail’s End Restaurant and Crockett’s Tavern.
The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort offer a variety of recreation opportunities like horseback riding, fishing, campfire sing-a-longs, outdoor movies, archery, canoe and kayak rentals, arcades, and more. Guests can explore the scenic trails of this unique resort and enjoy a variety of dining and entertainment options. The Fort Wilderness Resort also provides easy access to the Magic Kingdom Park, as it’s a boat ride away.

What Will the Updates to the Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort Cabins Entail?
The plan includes 350 cabins replacing current ones at Fort Wilderness resort, with the intention of making them as environmentally friendly and energy-efficient as possible while still utilizing the footprint of the current cabins. These will accommodate six adults and include a bedroom, bathroom, living room, full kitchen and private patio. Certain cabins will also be dog-friendly!
All rebuilding will take place on the existing 750 acres of scenic woodlands, and the project will result in a “refreshed” version of the cabins that is inspired by the resort’s beautiful setting and embraces its “unique culture and heritage through the magic of Disney storytelling.” The Fort Wilderness area has always been popular for its bucolic nature and recreation offerings.
“For more than 50 years, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground has offered guests the opportunity to explore nature with their loved ones while staying in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort,” said Bill Diercksen, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club. “We’re excited to continue to build upon the resort’s rich legacy and elevate the cabin experience for our Members and all guests to enjoy for years to come.”
