Hey, Disney Vacation Club Members! Are you excited about the upcoming cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort? Well, exciting news is on the horizon! The Disney Vacation Club (DVC) has been hard at work filing all the necessary paperwork for the newest property, and you know what that means. We’ve got a glimpse into what to expect with its newest resort. Let’s dive into the details on the new DVC Fort Wilderness Cabins, set to open in mid-2024.
A Sneak Peek into the Future
Recently, DVC has been buzzing with activity, filing numerous documents with the Orange County Comptroller. These papers give us a glimpse into the much-anticipated Fort Wilderness Cabins. While most of the documents cover the usual timeshare rules, there are a few nuggets that caught my attention and I thought you would find valuable.
Here’s What’s New and Exciting
- A 50-Year Journey: Each DVC development has its own timeline. For the Fort Wilderness Cabins, the journey begins in mid-2024 and is set to last until January 31, 2075. That’s just over the 50-year mark that each DVC property lease is set for.
- Resale Restrictions: Like other recent DVC properties (Riveria Resort, and Villas at Disneyland Hotel), the Fort Wilderness Cabins come with specific resale restrictions. If you’re buying a deeded Fort Wilderness contract off the resale market, remember, it’s only valid for stays at the Cabins. Also, resale points purchased after January 19, 2019, at other resorts won’t be eligible for booking here.
- Pet-Friendly Paradise: Big news for dog lovers! The Cabins will be the first pet-friendly destination in DVC. You can bring up to two dogs per cabin, with no weight limit. But remember, there are rules to ensure everyone (including your furry friends) enjoys their stay. See more below.
Important Rules for Dog Owners
- Dogs should be fully trained and off the furniture.
- They must be leashed or in a carrier when outside the cabin.
- Dogs aren’t allowed in dining areas, pools, and other recreational spots.
- They can’t be left alone for more than 7 hours.
- Schedule room cleaning in advance to ensure your dogs aren’t in the cabin.
- Use door hangers to indicate dogs are in your cabin.
- And yes, there’s a nightly dog fee – $30 for DVC owners and $50 for all other guests.
The Disney Vacation Club Trust Product
There’s also buzz about the new Disney Vacation Club Trust product. Within the filed documents files is a section regarding the “Bylaws of Palmetto Trust Association, Inc.”. This trust is also linked to the potential Disney Vacation Club Trust. While details are still under wraps, this could be a game-changer for DVC members. I’m keeping an eye out for more information on this innovative offering. For more information regarding the potential Disney Vacation Club Trust product check out this article.
Wrapping Up with a Bow of Excitement
The DVC Fort Wilderness Cabins are shaping up to be a unique addition to the Disney Vacation Club family. With new concept art released and an opening date in mid-2024, the excitement is building. These cabins are set to become the seventeenth DVC destination, offering a blend of rustic charm and Disney magic.
So, if you’re planning your next Disney adventure, keep the Fort Wilderness Cabins on your radar. It’s not just a vacation; it’s an experience waiting to be cherished!
