Glamping Arrives at Walt Disney World — See Inside the New Chip and Dale-Themed Cabins


The modern new cabins opened on July 1 at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort Courtesy Walt Disney World Resorts The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Camping just got a major Disney makeover. On July 1, The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort opened at the property's famous campground. An updated version of its existing log cabin-style accommodations, the new models features modern touches like floor-to-ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings and whimsical artwork. When the ongoing construction is complete, more than 350 new cabins will be available to book. Fort Wilderness, which opened in 1971, has long been home to the most "natural" setting at Walt Disney World. With 750 acres of Florida pine and cypress, it provides a haven for both weary tourists and wildlife. Tent camping and RV hook-ups are also available. But for those seeking a getaway that features the tranquility of nature and the comforts of home, the new cabins offer a full kitchen, a walk-in shower and plush queen and bunk beds. (In a nod to tent camping, the blankets on the bunk beds are sleeping-bag style.) Courtesy Walt Disney World Resorts The kitchen in the Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness. "I would say it is a bit of glamping," says Suzanne Szak, a senior interior designer with Walt Disney Imagineering. "The new cabins have a much more open, modern feel, much lighter and brighter. We still have touches of wood on the floor, the ceiling, the furniture of course. But it's a much more updated, modern palette. The windows bring a lot of natural light that connect guests to nature, which is something we really wanted to do."

Asked if there are any Disney Easter eggs in the decor, Szak says, "No hidden Mickeys — we're showcasing Chip and Dale here. You see them in the forefront in some of the artwork, and in other artwork they're a little bit more hidden. You also find them when you draw the drapes in the living room — they're almost running across the fence. So that's a fun, discoverable moment."

Visitors looking for an in-person experience with Chip and Dale can find them at the campground's nightly campfire singalong, where guests can also take in a movie under the stars and roast s'mores.

Other back-to-basics activities include fishing, kayaking, horseback riding and archery. These activities are priced separately from the accommodations, but it's free to visit the horses at the stables, where the pristine white ponies that pull Cinderella's carriage spend their off-duty hours.

Dining options at the Fort Wilderness Campground include several fast-casual eateries, groceries at two "trading posts" and the famed Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, a dinner theater show that marked its 50th birthday on June 30. With up to six people per cabin — plus pets! — the resort's multi-generational appeal has room for everyone, says Cesar Avila, senior manager of marketing and sales strategy for Disney Vacation Club. "You can bring grandparents along," he says. "I stayed in the cabins recently. I brought my parents, and I had my daughter and wife with me, and you can all spread out."
