I visited Disney World's high-end campsite. Each one-bedroom cabin sleeps up to 6 adults, and golf carts are everywhere.

  • The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort offers a high-end twist on camping.

  • The Disney World property consists of 500-square-foot cabins that sleep up to six.

  • The one-bedroom cabins are about $550 a night and have full kitchens, patios, and other perks.

On Monday, Disney World opened the first phase of The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, a luxurious twist on traditional camping.

Fort Wilderness is one of the Orlando theme park's original lodging options, but the older log cabins have now been replaced with new, colorful ones. (Earlier this year, people could buy the old builds for just under $50,000 a pop.)

Although the property is surrounded by nature and has rustic decor, it also has modern touches and upscale amenities. Plus, it's just a short boat ride away from Magic Kingdom.

Each cabin is about 500 square feet, with one bedroom and one full bathroom. The space sleeps up to six and prices vary but are typically over $500 a night.

As a member of the media, I toured The Cabins before they opened to the public. Here's a look inside.

The Cabins property is located at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.

The colorful new cabins are located at Fort Wilderness, a 750-acre property that's been open since the 1970s.

The outdoorsy resort is home to a more basic campsite, a lodge, five eateries, two pools, and a range of outdoor activities.

Golf-cart rentals are the easiest way to get around the property.

Visitors can explore the Fort Wilderness property on foot, by shuttle, or by personal golf cart. The preferred way to get around the large property seems to be by golf carts, which can be rented for $70 a day.

They can be parked right outside of a cabin and at desired locations, like pools and restaurants. Each cabin is also equipped with an on-site electrical-vehicle charging station.

The cabins are nestled in residential-like streets.

The cabins are located along a set of streets near the front of the resort. Each has a personal grill and parking space on its property.

Aside from color, the cabins look mostly the same on the outside.

Each cabin's private patio has views of the surrounding woodlands and is furnished with a dining table and chairs complete with Mickey Mouse detailing.

Inside, the cabins have rustic but modern designs.

The cabin's main room includes a full kitchen, dining table, living room, and sitting area.

The living room has a TV, sitting area, and a couch that's also a queen-size Murphy bed.

Each kitchen has modern finishes.

Although the cabins have a rustic style, they have modern appliances, including a dishwasher, large refrigerator, full-size oven, microwave, and coffee maker.

The kitchens also come with dishware and other essentials needed for preparing food.

The cabin's main focal point is the floor-to-ceiling windows.

The main living room overlooks the trees and patio through large floor-to-ceiling windows.

A queen bed and a bunk bed take up most of the bedroom.

The main bedroom sleeps up to four with a queen bed and a bunk bed. It has a large TV and storage, including an armoire and drawers below the bunk bed.

The cabin's main bathroom is spacious.

The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, closet space, sink, toilet, and lit-up mirror.

Most, but not all, cabins also have a split sink.

For convenience, most cabins have a second sink and vanity located outside the bathroom, making it possible for multiple people to get ready at the same time.

Disney also uses this split design on its cruise ships.

Artwork carries the theme throughout the space.

Artwork throughout the space honors camping traditions, like canoeing and archery. Guests will also find characters like Chip 'n' Dale and nods to Disney World's opening year, 1971.

Disney Easter eggs are scattered around the cabin, too.

The cabin contains fascinating Disney Easter eggs, like a nod to the former River Country, a water park near Fort Wilderness that closed in 2001.

Guests at The Cabins have access to a range of on-site activities and the theme parks.

Guests at The Cabins have access to Fort Wilderness's complimentary on-site activities, such as the pools, fireside sing-a-longs, and nature trails. Fishing excursions, archery, and horseback riding are available for an added cost.

Plus, the property is home to the popular Hoop-Dee Musical Revue dinner show.

Although the resort feels removed, it has private boat transportation to Magic Kingdom and complimentary shuttle service to other parks and Disney Springs.

Overall, the property combines the great outdoors with some Disney luxury.

Overall, with so much to do on-site and space to dine around the property (and within each cabin), this wilderness-inspired retreat is especially perfect for an untraditional Disney vacation.

The new cabins are available to book, but the property is still a work in progress. Once the full project is complete, the property is set to have 350 freestanding cabins.

The Cabins is also a Disney Vacation Club property, so members of that timeshare program can cash in points at this resort and receive priority bookings.
