I don't even know what that means and I'm terrified.
A million dollars in damage really doesn't sound like that much in the grand scheme of things. There's a million trees with cabins tucked all around them I imagine, like all the other cities in Florida, wind knocked some down onto roofs and caused major damage. It's why they evacuate that resort.
I was staying at FWC during a hurricane (i forgot the storms name). Just before it hit they moved us to a pair of rooms at Port Orleans and it took almost a week to re open and we moved back in our camper. This was before the Kudzu removal. there were a ton of downed trees that were already overloaded with the vines. I bet another large number of those pines were lost and the first priority are the parks and hotels that make more money.
Our first night back they gave each site a s'more kit.
It means closed for now, never to reopen.
There's too many kids on the internet now making things up.
With all the the pine trees in the Fort Wilderness area it would be my guess there is a lot of tree clean up which takes manpower and time.
Reading comments on click bait makes me question life so much.
Absolutely no chance it is permanently closing. They just have a lot of landscape damage that is going to take a few days to sort out.
I have no idea what the cost is, but does anyone really think $1million repair costs would close down a resort that is generating that type of income in a single day?
I just heard the same rumor from a cast member friend, though he presented it as rumor only and not as fact. He's not a senior executive or anything but he's many levels higher than "front line ride operator."
Of course not, the $1 million thing is 100% fake. The only sliver of truth I could see that would make Ft. Wilderness close would be something along the lines of "the hurricane jacked up the trailers (cabins) so badly that Disney decided it's not safe to allow guests to stay there in the future."
Kids? You need to expand your insightfulness of adult stupidity. You know 15 minutes of fame and all.
Given its money making abilities, I would bet that Disney would be prepared to pay whatever it takes to get the place back running.
No chance it closes. Minimal overhead to operate (well on a Disney scale anyway),.
I am only surprised they haven't built a second campground on property.
What's out there is speculation...... right now there is no set time. The fort took a major hit
Hoop de Doo is the best thing on property! They better get up and running! STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE
Heck yeah! I have December reservations myself.
Was River Country making a profit when they closed it?
today yes. I would wager money that within 20 years the Fort is redeveloped as it no longer represents the best use of the prime real estate it sits on.
When that day comes, it will be very sad.
An African themed campground near AK would be cool.
Oh that would be awesome! We went glamping in those big safari type tents...it was AMAZING! I would totally stay in one of those again...put it on Disney property and it would be the most beautiful thing!!
