James Robert “JR” Morrison’s phone rings non-stop.

The Brevard businessman is selling a hot item that many people want to buy: Disney’s Fort Wilderness Cabins. The Disney campground, which has a huge following, is getting a makeover: old cabins are slowly being replaced with brand new ones.

Morrison’s Brevard-based company, Florida Manufactured Home Sales, and an Orlando-based company were given the rights to purchase a total of 300 of Disney’s older cabins. Morrison got 100, while the Orlando company got 200.

Since these beloved log cabins were put up for sale, there has been a lot of social media buzz. Here are some answers to some of the questions floating around out there.

Are the iconic log cabins of Disney’s Fort Wilderness still for sale?

The Orlando-based company sold its allocation. Morrison, on the other hand, still has about 40 cabins available.

The price increased by $10,000 to $59,9000. To secure a cabin, a $1,500 deposit is required.

Morrison will receive the cabins in installments from Disney, about 10 at a time. The last shipment is expected in December.

What are the details of the Disney Log Cabins for sale?

The cabins were built in 1998 or 2001 and have undergone renovations since then. They measure just under 500 square feet and contain a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living area.

In addition to purchasing an iconic piece of Disney history, buyers also get all the themed furnishings: a queen bed and twin bunk beds, complete with mattresses, kitchen table and chairs, and a sleeper sofa. Also thrown in: televisions, light fixtures, appliances such as a toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator and stove. Even the Bible on the bedside table in the bedroom.

There are Disney touches throughout the cabin, from the spot on the front door to place a Magicband to Disney-themed toiletries attached to the bathtub wall to a sign in a cabinet addressed to “Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Guests ” with safety information.

Morrison has big, actually small, plans for when the Disney cabins are sold out

Morrison started in the mobile home world as a business owner at the age of 18. He had a decades-old successful career that included deals with the government and Disney.

The father of two and grandfather was enjoying semi-retirement when he was offered the opportunity to purchase the Disney cabins.

“I knew Disney obviously has a huge fan base, but as far as the overwhelming response, it’s like wow,” Morrison said. “We have a lot of people who need one.”

He estimated that about 60% to 70% of interested people are Disney fans. The rest are people who like the look and layout of the cabin, which got Morrison thinking.

“I plan to work in the tiny house industry and recreate the magic you see in the tiny houses,” Morrison told FLORIDA TODAY. “They obviously won’t be authentic, but we will recreate the look and style you see in these.”
