Late last year, Disney announced that The Cabins at Fort Wilderness would be getting major Disney Vacation Club upgrades, including a brand-new look for new cabins at the location.

Per the Disney Vacation Club website:

“Introducing The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort—the newest Disney Vacation Club Resort—set within a forest oasis of cypress and pine. Retreat to your own private cabin featuring plenty of modern amenities and charming, convenient comforts. Wake up to the buzzing of life and its endless fun, from poolside relaxation to fishing excursions to fireside sing-a-longs. And create cherished family memories nestled in the magic of nature. As a Disney Vacation Club Member, you can save on future Disney accommodations—including The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort—as you enjoy vacations, near and far, year after year.”

Disney touts the new location as an “idyllic woodland hideaway, where every stay is a wonderful adventure,” and thanks to an announcement on Tuesday, we now know those adventures can begin as soon as July 1.

The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort will begin to open on the first day of July 2024, with a second group of cabins opening in late July. Then, in the latter half of the year, additional cabins will open as well.

  1. This is going to ruin the quaint, laid back Fort Wilderness as it becomes filled with rich entitled Karens that are DVC members.
    The last of the original WDW is gone. Walt Dollar World lives on forever now.
