The road leading to the new Cast building at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground has opened as construction nears completion. The building is next to Pioneer Hall, on the former site of Tri-Circle-D Ranch.
Fort Wilderness Cast Building Construction
The land next to North Wilderness Road around the new building is flat. There’s a patch of dark dirt in the center of this space and a digger was parked next to it when we visited. Several crew members were on hand.
This area was full of fences and green scrim when we last visited. There’s now grass along the curb leading to the new road.
A stop sign has been installed at the corner of the new road, which is lined with construction cones as work continues. The newly opened road will likely just be for Cast Members.
The new cast building is the long low one behind a tree in the background of these photos. The basic structure was in place last August. It has since been painted the same shades of brown as the surrounding Fort Wilderness buildings.
As we previously reported, work on the building itself seems to be completed. Crew members appear to just be working on landscaping now. They were installing more grass along the new road to the left.
A digger has been used to excavate the ground on the right side of the road, which is still undeveloped. There are dozens of stakes sticking out of the ground.
The building appears to have an entrance at one end, in addition to one on the other side facing Pioneer Hall.
Scrim blocks the view of the building on the Pioneer Hall side. But we can see a white paved sidewalk leading up to the entrance door.
A peek through the fence showed us that a keypad had been installed next to this door.
We saw another digger on a walkway nearby.
