***This is a Very unique opportunity to own a piece of Disney History. These units are rarely available for the general public to own or purchase. With Disney changing these units out to go to new Disney Vacation Club (DVC) units starting late March 2024, we are making a select number of units available to the general public.*** 

THESE ARE THE ACTUAL Disney Fort Wilderness Resort log cabins currently used at the park that will be removed starting Late March 2024 and now becoming available for sale. Would be a fantastic opportunity for anyone that owns a piece of property/land and would like to use this for their very own Cabin in the woods, Hunting Camp, Guest House, Mother-In Law Suite, etc. or capitalize on an investment opportunity and turn it into a rental unit or as a vacation home and generate income on such sites as AirBNB, VRBO, HomeAway, etc. Same cabins that are still in use at the resort and are renting from $325-$500+ per night. 

Units are mobile (just like a mobile home) so can be towed and transported to any location you wish and has all the creature comforts of a 1Bed/1 Bath home and sleeps Six Comfortably. Unit has approx. 500 Sq. Feet of Living area. 

Once relocated it would need a deck/stairs built to the doorways, electrical and water services and sewer/septic hooked up to make them fully function like any other home. 

The unit dimensions are roughly 12.5′ x 43′. 

I can assist the buyers with transport by getting you in contact with a transport company that is very familiar with moving these units. They have all the specialized equipment needed to safely transport these. 

THESE ARE ACTUAL cabins that are going to be removed from Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort so it have been used on their site commercially and shows typical signs of wear and tear from being used to house guests at the resort. These units come fully furnished with many original Disney items such as the pictures on the walls, desk lamps, solid wood bed frames, curtains, etc. Being Sold As-Is/Where-Is but overall in good condition. 

Price: $59,000 USD per unit which includes all furniture and fixtures pictured. (Furniture may vary from unit to unit slightly).

 Due to the number of inquiries and interest in these units the last time they went available, serious buyers only please. 

These are the purchase terms: *Buyer must sign purchase contract, provide copy of their drivers license, and Proof of funds if they are purchasing 2 or more units. *$5000 security deposit would be due at time of signing contract to hold the unit for 10 business days to complete any due diligence/inspections needed to ensure the unit would work for your location.

 *After the 10 day due diligence period, an additional $35,000.00 would be due to secure your unit. *Remaining balance will be due 3 days prior to relocation from current location and title will be transferred to the new owner once balance has cleared and paid in full.

How cool is that? The lister insists that there is high demand for each cabin once they’ve come in stock. As the Fort Wilderness Cabins are an extremely popular lodging option at Walt Disney World, it’s no surprise that many would be very interested in owning a piece of history!

So, if you’ve got the money and are a serious buyer, why not bring home part of your favorite Disney Resort?

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time these cabins have gone for sale either. Back in 2021, a few were posted to Craigslist.
