Disney's Wilderness Lodge

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

The wilderness has never been more wonderful than at Disney's Wilderness Lodge! The majesty and grandeur of the great American Northwest echo throughout this relaxing mountain retreat and will appeal to every member of the family. Bubbling springs, authentic Native American carvings and an inspiring décor take you back in time to the historic national park lodges of yesteryear. Scenic wonders are everywhere, from fantastically themed restaurants to an amazing geyser faithfully shooting water 12-storeys high every hour! The kids will love the totem pole in the lobby, carved with all their favourite Disney characters. In fact, there's endless fun to be had here for everyone, both day and night!

I can't tell you how amazing the staff here is. The front desk staff starting with Cameron, was so very patient with me. This was our first stay here! I think I went back and asked him no less than 10 questions! Valet parking, and most of bell services were caring and very friendly! Advice, directions, suggestions, always spot on! Housekeeping was responsive- almost everytime- and very friendly. Even when there was a language barrier, only a couple times, they could help! Always offered a "good morning" and a smile. When an issue came up Cris from management was amazing! She treated my family like royalty. From the first day through the last she was constantly following up asking how our day went! Her Co worker Arlene were just amazing. We felt they truly cared about our visit there. We are so grateful! Read less

Subpar at best. Marathon items removed from roof by housekeeping. Given no guidance from front desk of how to retrieve. Pretty much the ever so popular. "Sorry" 8am on check out day. Housekeeping enters room while we are asleep. NOT worth it

The Wilderness Lodge has architecture reminiscent of a rustic mountain lodge. It reminds me of The Grand Californian at Disneyland with wide open spaces and lots of beautiful wood details. . The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. I only spent one night, so wasn’t able to see the entire grounds, but would love to visit again.

Our family stayed at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge during New Year’s week. We go to WDW once a year and have always enjoyed our stay. I would not recommend going for New Years. It is just way to crowded. The Wilderness Lodge was the highlight of our vacation. Two teenagers in our group got sick while we were there. The hotel provided extra cleaning services and linen changes at my request. I was doing everything I could to keep our other two kids healthy. Every additional request I made was met with a smile and friendly, prompt service. The staff seemed genuinely concerned for our comfort and welfare. They even provided a complimentary taxi to the airport for a member of our party who flew home ahead of schedule. The resort is clean and beautiful as well. Due to the illnesses we did not get to use the pools but they looked like a great spot to relax. We ate breakfast and lunch at the Whispering Canyon Cafe. The food was delicious and it was a fun and lively environment, great for family’s. Read less

We have stayed over at many of the hotels in DisneyWorld and each ahs it's own charm but this one has a couple of cool things going for it. First is the way the hotel looks. It is a large lodge that looks as if it were made with gigantic Lincoln logs. It has an impressive lobby/atrium with carved totems, a big fireplace and a restaurant right as you walk in. There's a store with plenty of Disney items as well as some food items that could be heated or cooked right in your room, (depending on your room's amenities). The place is large and offers a great pool area. When it's time to head up to the Magic Kingdom, you do so by boat and not bus which adds to the whole Lodge/outdoorsy theme. If you are going to head out to any of the other parks, there's a bus stop at the front of the hotel specially designed for the such. Among one of my favorite things was not having to visit the check-in desk coming into the hotel. Your magic band has all the information and as soon as your room is ready, they will let you know via text and you can just head to it and open the door using the band. We checked-in and checked-out without ever having to stand in any line or talk to anyone at all. It was cool as it saved a lot of time. If there's something I didn't like was the fact that the restaurant closes at 2:00pm and not open back until dinner time. I figure during peak times (like the Holidays), that the restaurant would be open all the day from early morning to late at night. We wanted to have a late lunch just to find it closed which it bothered me. I wish they would rethink that practice during peak days. Other than that, the hotel is full of atmosphere and sits away from the rest which is very nice indeed. Even the entrance to it when you come up in your car feels like you're entering a national park and not a hotel in Disney. I highly recommend this one. Read less
