More New DVC Cabins Arrive at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

As the opening date approaches, more of the new DVC cabins have arrived at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds. The 350 new cabins replace Fort Wilderness’ old log-style cabins.

DVC Cabins at Palmetto

Two cabins visible through the brush at Disney's Fort Wilderness.

There are two cabins visible off the Palmetto path, in loops 100 and 200. Though the original concept art for the cabins depicted them as green, the green on these cabins is from weather-proof sheathing and is not the final exterior paneling.

There is some light tan paneling at the back corners of this cabin. The same tan is around the bottom edge of the cabin and the edge of the roof.

Since our last construction update, this cabin gained new wood paneling around the large front windows. A short staircase leads up to the door. There’s an overhang over the entryway.

There are many new cabins at Cedar Circle and Shawnee Road. From across the street, we spotted two construction vehicles in a clear site of the campgrounds.

Construction barriers and heavy machinery at a roadwork site in a wooded area, with trees on both sides of the street.

The construction sites are blocked with temporary fencing.

In fact, we saw a few staircases standing by themselves.

This loop was full of cabins. Several had tarps on top of them because their roofs were not completed.

These cabins don’t yet have any of the wood paneling we saw on the Palmetto cabin.

They also don’t have any windows yet.

There are large openings where the windows and doors will be.

We can see inside this cabin. The interior isn’t finished, with steel frames outlining future walls.

The cabins continue in rows through the woods.

The cabins at this loop weren’t covered in tarps and some of their side paneling had been installed.

Still, green sheathing is exposed on all the cabins.

Openings in this cabin appear to be for electrical work.

Reservations opened for the DVC cabins in March. They are scheduled to open on July 1.

A virtual tour gave us our first look at the completed interior of a cabin. They have a more modern feel than the old cabins.
