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!

Our first steps into this hotel provided us with some of the best customer service I have ever received.

Our first steps into this hotel provided us with some of the best customer service I have ever received. A lovely blond woman at the front desk whose name I unfortunately didn't catch gave us tons of information about the property and rooms before we even set foot in one. We loved the quick-service restaurant choices here, though I wish they would be open even later at night. The pool area is nice (though we didn't use it) and the boat dock and captains were a lovely treat for us every day. The rooms were a bit on the small side compared to other Disney Hotels and the walls were pretty thin (we could here kids yelling and running down the halls), but honestly the positives outweighed that, and we would definitely stay here again.

The wilderness lodge has always been one of my favorite places to visit at Disney World, as it's beautifully maintained and it reminiscent of the lodges you might find out west.

We loved being able to take the boat directly to Magic Kingdom and from there get onto the monorail or other transportation to pretty much every other WDW location. Definitely worth going back.

This was our first trip to Disney, traveling with my husband and 11 year old son. We stayed for 7 nights at the Wilderness Lodge in room 2017, an "upgraded" courtyard facing room with a queen bed and twin bunk beds. We are not Disney people, and wanted to experience a deluxe resort to make this the most memorable trip possible. When traveling we typically stay in high end/luxury hotels, so it was my expectation that the Wilderness Lodge would be in this category. It is not. Our room was tiny, dingy and dated. The carpet was dirty, with crumbs/food from previous guests visible on the floor when we checked in. There are several extra phone jacks in the room in case you brought a giant desktop phone from 1980, but no USB outlets and virtually no regular power outlets. The bathroom was also tiny and so dark, as to make showering dangerous and unpleasant. It is my understanding that some of the rooms at the lodge have been renovated, but our room clearly had not been. The room had more of an "econo lodge" feel and less of a deluxe resort feel. We were also awakened numerous times a night because we could hear all of the toilets flushing in the rooms above us. I cannot imagine having four people in a room this small, as the three of us stumbled over each other the entire week. Fortunately we had a small balcony overlooking the pool, and this is where we would spend time after returning from the parks. The setting for the hotel is beautiful. We ate several times at the Geyser Point Bar, which has great ambiance and great views. The food at the various restaurants was good, but as a vegetarian my options were highly limited. The staff throughout the resort is fantastically nice, polite and helpful. The pool is fine, but nothing special. I have stayed in some of the great lodges in the national parks, and the Wilderness is similar: located in a beautiful setting, but run down and in need of updating. For the outrageous cost, I was quite disappointed by the quality of our room. Read less
