Hey there, Disney Vacation Club members! If you’re eyeing membership at The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort through the Disney Vacation Club (DVC), you’re probably curious about the cost. Well, I got some good news for you. We just got our first look at the pricing coming to the newest DVC resort. Let’s dive into the world of DVC and compare the price per point for The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort with other currently available DVC resorts.
What’s the Price per Point?
First off, the spotlight is on The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, coming in at $225 per point, with a contract expiration date of 2075. It’s a figure that might make you wonder how it stacks up against other DVC options. So, let’s compare:
- Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, and Disney’s Riviera Resort are both currently at a list price of $217 per point.
- The Villas at Disneyland Hotel, on the other hand, are a bit pricier at a list price of $230 per point.
Remember, these are list prices and don’t include any ongoing promotions, so keep an eye out for those special deals!
Now, what’s intriguing here is the pricing strategy. The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort are priced slightly lower than The Villas at Disneyland Hotel. This could be Disney testing the waters to see how popular The Cabins will be among DVC members. Or, it shows what value Disney Vacation Club is giving to the second DVC resort at Disneyland, The Villas at Disneyland Hotel. It’s also worth noting that The Cabins, just like Disney’s Riviera Resort and The Villas at Disneyland Hotel, come with the same resale restrictions. Here’s a full breakdown of the restrictions The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort.
When Do Points Go On Sale?
For those eager to snag their points at The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, mark your calendars! Current DVC Members can start purchasing on February 1, 2024, while first-time buyers get their chance from February 15, 2024. As of now, we’re still waiting to hear about any special promotions for adding on points.
How Many Points Per Night?
And here’s something to get excited about: How many points will you need for a night in these cozy cabins? While I’m still waiting for the official numbers, early hints suggest that a cabin might cost around 7,661 points annually. That averages out to about 20 to 21 points per night, though this can vary depending on the season. This pricing is quite a game-changer, as it positions these cabins as a more economical choice compared to many One-Bedroom villas and even some Deluxe Studio rooms at Walt Disney World. For a bit of context, consider the Value rooms at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas, which require about 8,176 points per year or an average of 22 to 23 points per night.
