NEWS: One Disney World Hotel Is Getting a Complete MAKEOVER

Round up your friends, grab a bag of trail mix, and lace up some hiking shoes; there’s a BIG update coming to the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. With SO many Disney World hotels to choose from, some people may forget about the good ole’ Fort Wilderness resort, but now there may be a new reason to check it out!

Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground has so many fun activities!

If you’re looking for an outdoorsy camping experience, Fort Wilderness might just be the place for you. Luckily, for those whose tent-assembling skills are lacking, there’s no need to fear! The cabins at Fort Wilderness are about to get an UPDATE!

Disney Vacation Club just announced its plan to redesign the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. The proposal calls for more than 350 refreshed cabins to replace the existing cabins at the resort. Although the new cabins will be part of the Disney Vacation Club resort lineup, the proposed cabins will be open for reservations to all guests, including those who are not Disney Vacation Club Members.

Fort Wilderness is a BEAUTIFUL resort!

So far, the concept art shows modern cabins “inspired by the resort’s idyllic setting, while also paying homage to the resort’s unique culture and heritage through the magic of Disney storytelling,” per Disney. The cabins will sleep up to six adults and feature a bedroom, bathroom, living room, full kitchen, and private patio. Disney noted that a select number of cabins will be dog-friendly.


Additionally, Disney hinted at some other updates around the resort, including an updated pool and walking trail enhancements as well as new dining experiences at Trail’s End Restaurant and Crockett’s Tavern.

As part of Disney’s Environmental Sustainability initiative, Disney stated that “the proposed cabins will be built with an eye toward the environment, utilizing the footprint of the existing cabins and taking advantage of more energy-efficient features.”
