PHOTOS: Road Leading to New Cast Building Opens at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

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

Flattened land next to North Wilderness Road.

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 new stop sign installed on the road by the construction area.

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.

More cones and construction walls along the road.

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 closer look at a digger in the construction site

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.

A look at one of the building's entrances.

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 look through a chain-link fence at the new building.

A peek through the fence showed us that a keypad had been installed next to this door.

Another digger parked on nearby pavement.

We saw another digger on a walkway nearby.

The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort are also under construction to become new DVC accommodations. They’re scheduled to open this July. Booking windows were recently announced.
