DVC applies for Timeshare license for Fort Wilderness cabins 

Disney Vacation Club has filed an application with the state of Florida for a new license for timeshare sales on October 12th.  The license application currently shows as being “under review” and the application calls for 18,876 timeshare weeks, which breaks down to 363 units. There is no additional information related to a timeline to offer sales.

More recent projects have seen Disney applying for a license 8-9 months before sales began. For instance, a license was issued to sell The Villas at Disneyland Hotel back in August 2022, while sales begin in May 2023. Grand Floridian Resort was opened in July 2021, but points weren’t on sale until March 2022.

Based on these numbers, we are likely to see the cabins go on sale sometime next summer.
