You might not believe it, but one of Disney’s cabins from Fort Wilderness was recently 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?
