The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Currently Undergoing Demolition


At Walt Disney World Resort, change is a constant. The most recent transformation is taking place at the well-loved Fort Wilderness Cabins. As part of a major renovation project, these cabins are currently being taken apart and removed from the resort to make way for the addition of the new The Cabins at Fort Wilderness – A Disney Vacation Club Resort.

The Demolition Process

Previously, guests could enjoy a rustic retreat at these cabins nestled amidst the natural beauty of the resort. However, as of now, a handful of these structures have been removed from the resort. The area is fenced off, with heavy machinery visible on-site, indicating the ongoing work.

The Future Of Fort Wilderness

While it’s clear that the future holds a new vision for the Fort Wilderness cabins, many details about how they will be built and integrated into Disney Vacation Club remain unknown. As always, Disney aims to create magical and memorable experiences for its DVC members, and this transformation is expected to be no different.

For more than 50 years, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground has offered guests the opportunity to explore nature with their loved ones while staying in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort. We’re excited to continue to build upon the resort’s rich legacy and elevate the cabin experience for our Members and all guests to enjoy for years to come.

  1. I would like to purchase one or two of the original cabins for nostalgic sake. Who could I contact to inquire about this?
