As part of a media resort tour earlier this year, I had a chance to step inside of one of the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Each cabin sleeps up to six guests.
The last refurbishment of the cabins was completed in 2016. If you’ve not stepped into one of the cabins recently, I thought that this might be a great time to take a peek at the changes.
Let’s take a look at the living room before the changes (above). This space received the lion’s share of the alterations during the refurbishment.
The Murphy bed was removed and was replaced by a double sleeper sofa. A large flat screen TV and six drawers for storage now take its place on the focal wall.
The larger lighting fixture was switched out with one in more of a Craftsman style, and the dining table bench seat received an upholstered seat back. The window curtains were also updated.
The bedroom is located at the end of a hall that leads off of the main living area. From what I understand, before the latest refurbishment, the bed in this room was a double; it’s now a queen. Thankfully, for the kid in all of us, the bunk beds remain.
A dresser topped with a flat screen TV is located just across from the queen bed, and a closet and counter area is located across from the bunk beds. A door to the patio/deck area is found on the wall at the end of the queen bed.
The bathroom vanity has been switched out with one that has more of a modern, yet rustic, feel.
The kitchen is located in the main living, and received new countertops and cabinets that match those found in the bathroom. While the footprint of the refurbished kitchen remained the same as before, the sink was moved away from the corner, and all appliances were replaced. Most notably, the range was removed and was replaced with a two burner stovetop and a combination convection/microwave oven.
The wood plank backsplash was replaced with a subway tile in a creamy khaki color, and the brushed nickel faucet matches the one found in the bathroom. The kitchen comes stocked with plates, cups, pots, and utensils for the whole family, as well as a coffee pot and toaster.
Each cabin features a spacious deck with a picnic table. A charcoal grill is located just off of the deck. Guests staying in the cabins can rent golf carts for $67 a day.
