I like the theme of this one. Don't plan to purchase more DVC, but we will definitely try to stay here in the future!

    I'm in the minority in this thread. I like the concept of the resort , and the artwork I've seen so far. Aren't the horses, petting zoo and so forth being relocated to another area of Fort Wilderness? I would assume they will still be available for viewing after the relocation., but I'm not sure. AS far as parking, I can't imagine a deluxe resort without it's own parking area...I would never have expected a deluxe to use only internal busses to/from parking. Especially that Disney is now charging cash guests for parking.

    I have been contemplating buying into DVC and this is the resort I want to buy into! I love Fort Wilderness and Wilderness Lodge. I like to idea of being so close to both of the amenities of these resorts. I also am really excited that RLL will have some characters influences included. I also like the idea of the small studio rooms. I do 1-2 solo trips a year and a couple of trips with my daughter. This would be a perfect fit for us. And now the added dining venue with Tiana (who should be at Port Orleans French Quarter, but I will definitely enjoy it here). Does anyone know when sales start for this resort?

    I will probably be buying in, too. The only thing I know is the resort is scheduled to open in 2022.

    The concept art does not show much of the kitchen. Are they still including full kitchens?
    Since it’s a DVC resort, the usual 1 bedroom and larger will have a full kitchen. I do hope it’s spacious like the BLT kitchens.

    I think we're looking at more of the horrid ally kitchen style they introduced with Copper Creek.
    If anyone finds a picture that shows otherwise, Please post it.

    Yes it must be, because in that one illustration that shows a living area, I can see a DR table but no kitchen appliances like a fridge so the layout must be all along the wall. Or they scaled way back on the kitchen area and it will only be a kitchenette? It's a little suspicious that they did not show the kitchen amenities but they showed every other angle.

    Overall I do like this, and I see how they made the theme very different from WL with the 60's and 70's vibe.

    It looks nice, but I will wait until they announce where the next DVC is being built before a decide to add on. IF (a big word) they decide to build by that land where the swinging bridge is located-between GF and MK, that would be more up my alley. The luxury to being able to walk to MK would be too much of a draw for me. What is the expression realtors use--location, location, location.
