Hey there, Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Members! Do you love the great outdoors and have a penchant for cozy, rustic accommodations? If so, you’re in for a treat! The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort points are now up for grabs, offering a unique blend of wilderness charm and Disney magic. Before you pack your bags and set your sights on this outdoor wonderland, let’s dive into the details of the DVC Fort Wilderness Cabins sales launch.
First things first, the big news dropped on February 1, 2024 – DVC officially kicked off sales for The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. This opportunity initially opened its doors exclusively to current DVC members, with the window for first-time buyers swinging wide on February 27. So, if you’ve been dreaming of owning a slice of this idyllic escape, now’s your chance to make that dream a reality.
Now, let’s talk numbers. The points for these coveted Cabins are tagged at $225 per point. That puts them on par from a list price perspective with other luxurious DVC properties like Disney’s Riviera Resort and Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas. While the price point might raise a few eyebrows, Disney is softening the blow with some promotional incentives. However, it’s worth noting that these discounts – $2 off per point for a 100-point add-on and $10 off for 150 points – suggest that DVC is not exactly playing the low-price leader game here.
For those keeping an eye on the long-term commitment, the annual dues for the Cabins are set at $12.16 per point starting in 2024. This positions the Cabins as the second priciest option in the DVC lineup, trailing only behind Disney’s Vero Beach Resort. But before you let that deter you, consider this – the nightly stay costs at a Cabin are surprisingly wallet-friendly. In fact, they’re more economical than any One Bedroom villa in the DVC system and even beat out many Deluxe Studio options. This makes the Cabins an attractive choice for those looking to enjoy Disney luxury without the hefty price tag. Here’s a full breakdown of the number of points needed to stay in a Fort Wilderness Cabin.
It can be assumed that the higher annual dues price is due to the limited facilities and the lack of a true hotel, at the Fort Wilderness Resort. Many times when a DVC resort is part of a larger Disney Resort, like the the Grand Floridian Resort, the annual dues tend to be more reasonable. This is due to guests paying cash off-setting the cost for things like housekeeping, laundry, etc.
If you’re already picturing yourself unwinding in one of these charming cabins, nestled among the serene wilderness yet still within the Disney bubble, reaching out to your DVC sales guide is your next step. They can provide all the nitty-gritty details and help you navigate the purchase process. Alternatively, the members-only website features an add-on tool that’s pretty handy for existing members looking to expand their DVC portfolio.
In a nutshell, The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort offer a unique opportunity to own a piece of Disney magic, wrapped in the rustic allure of a wilderness getaway. Whether you’re a seasoned DVC member or considering your first purchase, these cabins promise an enchanting escape that combines the best of both worlds – Disney’s unparalleled hospitality and the tranquil beauty of nature. So, why not explore what the Fort Wilderness Cabins have in store for you? It could be the perfect addition to your Disney Vacation Club collection.
