Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground Adding “Mining Tower Interactive Feature” As Part of Ongoing Reimagining

A new construction permit filed by Walt Disney World states that “A new guest interactive feature to wash sand” is coming to Fort Wilderness Campground. As you may remember, Fort Wildness is undergoing a large scale refurbishment and reimagining as part of the construction of Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge.

The permit doesn’t go into details about the interactive sand washing feature, but it does indicate the location is the “Fort Wilderness Mining Tower”.

This feature could be an interactive element like panning for gold or the like, but could also be a simple feature for washing off sand near the newly relocated beach at Fort Wilderness.

Make sure to stay tuned to WDWNT for updates on this story and many more.
