Um…hey, Disney? Psst. We’re here to give you a gentle nudge. What for? Well, there’s this one resort that has some snazzy new rooms. But there’s another (similar) hotel that you FORGOT to update. (OK, Disney probably didn’t forget, but either way, we feel like it’s time for a reminder.) The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort just got a total makeover, and while some people miss the old cozy cabin vibes, others seem to love the changes. Is it time to take a swing at another Disney resort?

NEW Fort Wilderness Cabins!

So, what brings us here? Well, after getting a full tour of the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, it got us thinking. Tucked away in the back of Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort are some quiet, woodsy hotel rooms known as Treehouse Villas. They’re nice, spacious, and reminiscent of the old Cabins at Fort Wilderness. But these days, they’re also starting to look a little…dated.

Here’s a peek at the Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs Resort. If you’ve ever taken a boat ride to Disney Springs, you’ve likely passed by some of these rooms. It’s an interesting concept. The room is elevated, giving you a unique, woodsy view.

But here’s what it looks like inside. As you can see, the decorations aren’t bad at all! In fact, they’re cozy and rustic. But if you’ve been paying attention lately, it seems like Disney decorators favor light, bright, and modern amenities these days. And, well, this is not exactly modern.

For reference, here’s a look at the OLD Fort Wilderness Cabins.

And here’s a look at the NEW design. Disney completely changed the exterior!


Inside, the Fort Wilderness Cabins were upgraded with new decorations, new beds, and a bigger TV. As we said, the changes were colorful, bright, and modern.

Now, we haven’t forgotten what everyone said about the Fort Wilderness Cabins. A LOT of people told us that they liked the nostalgic vibes of the old cabins. So, while we do think that the Treehouse Villas could use a refurbishment, we’re not calling for a total aesthetic makeover. Disney, if you’re listening, let’s keep the cozy cabin vibes, but just add a few small updates! Who’s with us?


While we’re all for change, it is worth mentioning that “updated” doesn’t have to mean “more modern.” There are TONS of design styles out there to work with — Disney could even pull from the archives or get inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright! The possibilities are ENDLESS — and they don’t have to be that cookie-cutter modern look that seems to be dividing Disney fans right now.


So, what would YOU like to see? Are you ready for the Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa to get a makeover, or should Disney let it be? Let us know your thoughts! In the meantime, we’re always on the lookout for the latest Disney news, so stay tuned for more.
