Fort Wilderness Cabin found listed for sale online at Craigslist

You might not believe it, but one of Disney’s cabins from Fort Wilderness has been found listed for sale on Craigslist.

One of the many unique things about a getaway to Walt Disney World is Guests’ ability to choose accommodations that fit their needs, taste and budget.

If you’ve ever stayed on property at a Disney World Resort Hotel, you know that Disney pulls out all the stops when it comes to creative theming, decor and architecture throughout each of its resort properties. From the whimsical theming of the value resorts to the lavish, upscale accommodations you’ll find at resorts like Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney’s Riviera Resort, there’s a perfect accommodation (or two) for every Disney fan!

Some fans opt for the less luxurious, more rustic, nature-inspired and comfort-oriented accommodations. For them, there’s Disney’s Fort Wilderness Lodge and the Cabins at Fort Wilderness. Fort Wildnerness Lodge consists of indoor accommodations–no “roughing it” at this Magic Kingdom area Resort Hotel.

But at Fort Wilderness, you can choose to book a cabin or a campsite. (Yes, you can camp at Disney World!) And if you’re more of the cabin type, and you visit the Craigslist site often, you might have noticed an interesting listing recently.

That’s because a listing for a retired Disney World Fort Wilderness Cabin was recently found on Craigslist. No joke! Its asking price? A cool $50,000!

The cabin shown in the listing definitely has some expected signs of wear and tear, consistent with being on property at Disney and used by Guests and their families over the years.

This isn’t the first time one of these giant Disney World souvenirs has been seen for sale online. Back in 2016, several of the retired cabins were found at Nature’s Resort in Homosassa, Florida. Those cabins were being sold for $20,000 each.

The cabins are generally designed to sleep up to 6 adults across approximately 500 square feet. Even though that doesn’t sound exceptionally spacious (because it isn’t), the insides of the furnished cabins do have their own brand of coziness and charm.

So, how about you? Are you in the market for a huge piece of Magic Kingdom Resort area memorabilia?

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
