Have you ever had the dream to just live at Disney World? For many of us Disney fans, the idea of being able to live at a Disney World Resort, experience the theming and magic at all times seems like a dream. Well, although it may be too expensive to live every day of your life at a Disney World Resort, we may have a solution that is relatively affordable and will leave you with the ability to live in a Disney World property!

Of course, Disney Vacation Club is a great way to experience the Disney magic yearly, and Golden Oak is a sure way to live at Disney World each day; however, the first option is not permanent, and the second is incredibly expensive. 

While surfing the web on Craigs List, it was discovered that an actual fully intact Fort Wilderness Resort log cabin was posted as an item for sale. The cabin is an actual Fort Wilderness Resort log cabin which was removed in 2016 and is now being listed as a sale item. The cabin is being sold in Florida for $50,000, which may not be out of everyone’s budget if it means that they could own a piece of Disney magic.

The listing explains the history of the cabin, as well as what is included:

For SALE: AUTHENTIC FORMER DISNEY’S FORT WILDERNESS LOG CABIN

***This is a Very unique opportunity to own a piece of Disney History. These units are rarely available for the general public to own or purchase. With it being the 50th Anniversary of Disney, we are making a unit available for purchase.***

THIS IS AN ACTUAL Disney Fort Wilderness Resort log cabin that was removed from THE 2100 BLOCK back in 2016 and is now available for sale.

Would be a fantastic opportunity for anyone that owns a piece of property/land and would like to use this for their very own Cabin in the woods, Hunting Camp, Guest House, Mother-In Law Suite, etc. or capitalize on an investment opportunity and turn it into a rental unit or as a vacation home and generate income on such sites as AirBNB, VRBO, HomeAway, etc. Same cabins that are still in use at the resort and are renting from $325-$500+ per night.

Unit is mobile (just like a mobile home) so can be towed and transported to any location you wish and has all the creature comforts of a 1Bed/1 Bath home and sleeps Six Comfortably. Unit has approx. 500 Sq. Feet of Living area.
Once relocated it would need a deck/stairs built to the doorways (This particular unit has a Large deck that could be included with purchase but would need to be disassembled and hauled off by the buyer at their own expense), electrical and water services hooked up to make them fully funcion like any other home.

These units were built in 1998 by Liberty Homes out of Ocala, Florida and will come with clean Florida Title (STILL IN DISNEY’S NAME) as well as HUD Certificate.

The unit dimensions are roughly 12.5′ x 43′.

I can assist the buyer with transport by getting you in contact with a transport company that is very familiar with moving these units as they are the ones who originally transported them to Disney back in 1998 and also relocated them to where they sit today. They have all the specialized equipment needed to safely transport these.

THIS IS AN ACTUAL cabin that was removed from THE 2100 BLOCK of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort so it has been used on their site commercially and shows typical signs of wear and tear from being used to house guests at the resort. This unit has 2 brand new mini Split Air Conditioning units that come with the unit, comes fully furnished with many original Disney items such as the pictures on the walls, desk lamps, solid wood bed frames, curtains, Murphy bed, etc. Being Sold As-Is/Where-Is but overall in good condition.

Price: $50,000 USD which includes all furniture and fixtures pictured, 2 Mini Split A/C units, and large exterior deck (Buyer responsible for removal and transport of deck)

This Unit is located in Duette, Florida but another can be viewed in Seminole, Florida as well as Marble, North Carolina if needed.

It may not be a room at Disney’s Grand Floridian, but the cabin would be the perfect piece of memorabilia for any Disney fan! It could act as a great tiny home or, can be placed on a lakeside area (or anywhere you own land) as a vacation destination.
