The popular "log cabins" at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground and Resort are now for sale. 

Earlier this year, Disney updated a loop of their cabins located at their popular "glamping" campground.

The available 400 or so cabins are basically just single-wide one bedroom mobile homes. The original cabins were between 1997-2000 and now are being updated a second time. The 500 sq. ft. cabins began being replaced with new ones earlier this year.

The old ones spent some time on the former WDW airport runway near the Magic Kingdom parking lot where typically now buses or construction teams stage. The cabins then disappeared essentially with even the most in-depth message boards offering few details on their location.

Back in April, just as the trailers mysteriously disappeared from Disney property a blog with a single post appeared offering the trailers for sale. The blog gave few details about the trailers. Then the trailers seemed to just drop off most people’s radars. That was until Chip & Co, an unofficial Disney news site, spotted the trailers for sale at Nature’s Campground, a campground resort in Homosassa, Florida.

Unfortunately, the cabins must stay at the campground but they can be purchased for $20,000. The owners must also pay a hefty monthly lot fee as well. Now if we can just find those Fort Wilderness trains that used to sit at the entrance of Pleasure Island.
