Off the kitchen you'll find a vanity area outside the entrance to the bathroom, which has a shower and an additional vanity inside.

Each morning you can draw the curtains back to reveal floor-to-ceiling windows and your own personal patio deck, where you can bask in the glories of nature while firing up the charcoal grill and dining al fresco.

Tons of the new cabins are going up in the 2300, 2500 loops (I believe those are the loops). Those aren’t nearly as complete as the ones near Pioneer Hall, however.

While that set of cabins had no signs, all the other ones have no photography signs… so I think they just forgot to put them up.

Why did you delete the photos?

Saw a few cabins getting installed by Pioneer Hall today, they looked quite nice!

They are evacuated due to the amount of trees.

I miss being a local for this exact reason. There was a deal last summer that was much better "bang for the buck" than my current AP price, imo. Alas, that's the price you pay for wanting to be back closer to family.

Permanent implies they’ll be better able to withstand apparently increasingly severe weather. There can be no question a structure attached to the ground and up to code has a better chance against hurricanes; and we’re getting more tornadoes down here, too. I do agree the lack of “woodsy” theming is a minus and was a big part of the cabins’ charm, but not a dealbreaker. As for the rest, as always around here, just know that other people prefer things differently. For me, in my party of two (plus eventually 1 or 2 pets) there are many advantages to this layout that far outweigh a washer/dryer. And I’m guessing there will be a common area for that, but I don’t know. First, when you have pets, in addition to what I mentioned earlier, the convenience of just walking right out the door to pee is wonderful. You don’t have to go down 13 flights and find a designated area, you just open the door. That’s worth something. You will 100% never have a family above you jumping around. You will never share a wall with people being loud or smoking. You will never even hear a toilet flush other than your own. You don’t even have to deal with people in a hallway or lobby, or all their germs, for that matter. That level of privacy, but still having amenities like restaurants, is unheard of in theme park resorts and worth a lot to me. Then you have the setting itself: again, super quiet at night, peaceful, empty, nature, etc. Horse and buggy, horseback riding, and other relatively unique things like archery, etc. Inside the cabins: full kitchen (I guess that’s the same as other DVC) separate areas, and it doesn’t feel like you are in a hotel! Overall I love the idea of the Cabins; I just don’t think buying DVC saves you much, but obligates you to a lot. And we get sometimes the same or slightly less discounts as FL residents/APs. Plus I can pay for my non-DVC Cabin with Chase Disney Visa points. Vs. other DVC, if important, they sleep six without getting two rooms. That could be good for rental/resale, or could be outweighed by the washer/dryer situation for some. That might be less important to newbies, I don’t know.

For a variety of reasons that don’t include the construction of the cabins themselves.

Well, sure. Fort has a lot of trees that could come down and injure guests. Additionally, those same trees and the isolated nature of each guest cabin would make rescue services very difficult. Easier to put guests in a unified structure. Are you suggesting that the concern is that the cabins would blow away? Jim Shull, is that you?

And yet will likely be the first to close down/evacuate in the chance of a hurricane

SaucyBoy29 days ago

Hmm good point. I could see them working for that time frame.

nickys29 days ago

The benefits of these are that points wise they’re on a par with studios. I think they’ll prove popular at 7 months. I might consider them for 2-3 nights, but if we have our adult sons with us they can have the bedroom (one will sleep on a bunk) and we’ll take the wall bed.

nickys29 days ago

The current cabins haven’t been in place since 1999 though! So when they say the new ones are permanent structures I’m taking it with a large pinch of salt.

GhostHost100029 days ago

What that those won’t be permanent? They likely won’t last forever, roof and all walls exposed to weather, just like the ones they are replacing, even if they are trying to make these more permanent I doubt they will be.
