The new DVC Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort are beginning to be added as the resort undergoes refurbishment.

During a recent visits to the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, we spotted a great deal of progress being made in the construction of the cabin sites as they prepare to be turned into DVC properties.

Starting at Bay Tree Lane, in the 100 loop, we could see a cabin with windows walls, and a roof up, along with a staircase.

Earlier in the year, guests were given a look at a virtual tour inside of the future cabins, which have a more modern feel than the cabins that previously existed. The one bedroom DVC cabins are currently available for stays beginning September 27.

Over at Arrowhead Way, the 2200 loop, things are still cleared out and ready for new cabins to be installed. This is unchanged from our last visit in March.

The area across from Arrowhead Way has been closed to guests.

The sign blocking the path reads “This area is temporarily unavailable.”

Walls have gone up around a waterway in the 2000s loop area.

The walls have not impacted guests’ ability to walk on the sidewalk in the area.

As the resort remains open during the construction, there are signs asking guests to pardon the appearance.

Platforms have be built in cleared areas, in preparation for the installation of more new DVC cabins. The partially-built cabins can be seen in the distance. Crew members were working on the platforms during our visit.

We saw a vehicle carrying a couch from the old cabins down the road. Those old cabins are currently being sold on Facebook.

Finally, over at the Cast Member building at Fort Wilderness, small portions of fencing remains up, despite the building already being in use by Cast Members.

Fencing is slowly coming down, however the portion above has not changed since our last visit at the end of March.
