The Disney World Hotel That Finally Took Our Poop Anxiety Into Consideration

Okay, let’s be real. It can be AWKWARD to share a hotel room with other people.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Room

Whether you’re cramped into a small space with people you share a house/apartment with, or you’re staying with friends who live apart from you, nobody gets very much privacy in a Disney World hotel room. And you know what really doesn’t help? The bathroom situation. Usually, they’re right off the main room and the doors aren’t exactly soundproof. But if you’ve got that hotel bathroom anxiety…Disney has come up with a solution!

Currently, Disney World is in the process of renovating the cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort and turning them into Disney Vacation Club properties. We’ve seen plenty of concept art for these updated buildings, but there’s something that really intrigues us about the floor plan.


In the old cabins, the bathrooms were located between the living room/kitchen area and the main bedroom, in the middle of a small hallway. It was a central location for the people staying in the cabin, since one of the beds was in the living room.

But with the new design, it looks like the bathrooms have been moved to the END of the building! They’re now separate from the other living spaces, on the opposite side from where the beds are. 


This might be a smidge inconvenient in the middle of the night if you’re staying in the bedroom and you have to pass through the living room to get to the bathroom, but we do see the silver lining. If you’re feeling a bit…umm…”pee shy” in regular hotel rooms, then this might be the solution!


The redesign of these cabins has been a bit controversial so far, with some lamenting the loss of the more rustic features from the old cabins. We’ll be interested to see what they look like when they’re all complete! They’re set to welcome the first visitors in July 2024.
