Disney's Wilderness Lodge

Walt Disney World, Orlando

Virgin rating

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!

Omg first time staying in a nature view room at Wilderness lodge. Such a gorgeous resort, the smell in the lobby is so nice. The lobby is magnificent. Great facilities for myself & my family. Kids loved the pools. Food options are also very good. Boat to Magic Kingdom was very handy. Bus service was also good

We originally booked Widerness Lodge because our reservation at Contempory did not work out and Disney Services was scrambling to get us placed somehwere with CLUB LEVEL Service. I was pleasantly surprised at the lodge. The resort has a rustic, northern feel to it yet the rooms were fairly modern and up-to-date. We were able to take a boat to Magic Kingdom. A bus for the rest of the parks. The pools were very good and my daughter had a blast in both of them. There was also a kid activity centre for her as well as an arcade that I think, at times, she loved more than the parks. CLUB LEVEL-We've been to Disney World before but this was our first time in CLUB LEVEL. All I can say is I never going to stay at A Disney Resort unless it is CLUB LEVEL. Every morning Breakfast was available long with lunch and evening dinner. The rest of the time there were a varity of wine and beer, juice, water, coffee, tea, light snacks and desserts. But what makes CLUB LEVEL really work is the Concierge Services. Not only would they bring you an extra drink from time to time and check in on you as you relax in the Lounge, they were invaluable when it came to reserving restaurants to getting us on "SOLD OUT" Lightening Pass. One morning when we tried to book ourselves on one of Disney's most popular rides, ROTR, our App would suddenly not accept our payment and crashed. By the time we got it up and running the Ride was already "SOLD OUT" for the day. I explained this to our Concierge what happened with the crash and see if there is anything they can do. Sure enough, they made a couple of called, verified that the App did indeed crash briefly and ensured our Time Slot for the ride. The Conceirge even was able to get us reservation in some of Disney more difficult restaurants. Disney is Massively Expensive now but the one value item that was worth every penny was upgrading to CLUB LEVEL. If you are not in CLUB LEVEL at one of the top 8 Resorts you are diffently missing out. Read less

This was our first time staying at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and we were happy with our choice. We booked a Nature View standard room (2 queen beds) for our family of three. We were happy to see when we arrived in our room that we had a view of the Magic Kingdom, and therefore, we would be able to see the nightly fireworks show from our balcony! The room was well appointed and had clearly been renovated recently. We loved our little balcony which overlooked a pond and the Cascade Cabins, with Cinderella's castle in the distance. We arrived early and checked in via the phone app. When our room was not yet ready we left our luggage with the valet and caught a bus to Epcot for the day. Disney let me know by text when our room was ready (around 3pm) but we didn't return until 9pm. The app enabled us to go directly to our room (once requesting our luggage be sent up) and enter with my phone. My daughter's magic band also worked to unlock the door. Our luggage was promptly brought up by a bellman. Our room was right outside the elevator and I was concerned about noise levels, but it was overall a quiet stay. Eventually visited the front desk for help with transportation - they were efficient and helpful. We enjoyed the pool area and hot tub. The Roaring Fork was convenient for grabbing a quick breakfast and snacks, although the fruit quality was poor, and the prepared food was not very good. One exception: the campfire cupcake we enjoyed while watching the fireworks was delicious! We did not try the other dining options. We loved taking the boat service back and forth to the Magic Kingdom! Much better than the bus experience. Check out was extremely easy and convenient - did not have to visit the front desk. Overall would recommend this hotel, especially if you are spending lots of time at MK. Looking forward to staying at WL again someday! Read less
