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!

We’ve been 4 times from the UK, and go to different hotels each time. Hotel is dark, and room smelt a little damp, lift to the 4th floor where we stayed was out of order more times than working, following a complaint they apologised and offered additional fast passes. Paid for a woods view, and got what we would classify as a swamp view room with trees in the background, I guess that’s the difference in woods from a Brit to an American, Fast food service was good, and a large selection of quick food, so this was often used before we hit the parks. Pool was good with pleasant views of the hotel, geyser and the lake towards MK. Read less

The hotel is located within the Magic Kingdom resorts so benefits from the boat services that get you to Magic Kingdom, which is quite nice after the fireworks as the queues leaving Magic kingdom for the monorail or the boat back to the parking are large where as for the resort boats significantly shorter. The hotel itself is really well themed and the detail is amazing. The rooms are what you would expect in terms of size for a Disney Deluxe hotel. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurants are all good and have lots of choice. The only major criticism I would have is the pools are too small. We generally used the DVC pool as it was slightly quieter, but on a couple of occasions tried the main pool only to find no space etc. We have stayed in a number of ten deluxe hotels and sadly this is probably the one we have liked the least, but that’s not to say we didn’t like it, just it’s not as good as Animal Kingdom or the Yacht and beach.

We stayed here for 4 nights for our 30th anniversary trip. Cannot say enough good things about this resort, especially during the Christmas season. We stayed in a nature view room. We had amazing views of the castle, The Contemporary Resort, and the lakefront cabins. We could sit on our balcony and watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks each night and also watch the Electric Water Pageant. Our room was spacious and decorated in lodge motif. The beds were very uncomfortable, but we managed. The resort itself is just amazing. From the time you walk in you feel like you are truly somewhere in the woods in a grand lodge. The decor throughout is beautiful. There is a free tour each morning that is very insightful. We loved being able to take the boat to Magic Kingdom, Fort Wilderness, and The Contemporary. The walking trail between Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness was nice, especially if you like to walk or run. Great trail for that. Has a quick service and 2 table service restaurants. QS was good and Whispering Canyon was good as well. Each night there was a different activity in the lobby such as a choir that sang Christmas songs, a handbell ensemble, etc. There was also a little gift shop/snack shop that sold holiday snacks and items. Highly recommend coming during the Christmas season. All the decorations were beautiful and made it feel like a Hallmark movie setting (lol). Will definitely stay here again! Read less

KIDS FAVORITE Disney hotel. No monorail, have to take a boat but that’s honestly not a problem at all. Most Disney hotels are 4 people to a room so my family of Five has to get two rooms. Does make it more expensive than off property hotels. Kids love the lodge, the pool, the game room, and the restaurants. Kids like it better than Grand Floridian… Read more

Stayed with family for a week. DVC. What a fabulous resort. Rooms were clean. Pool was great. Gym was perfect. Whispering Canyon was a great time. Great service! Bus transportation and boat transportation was timely and professional. Check in was easy. Fortunately we had no issues the entire stay. Our interaction with staff members were limited. The only weird thing was our room did not have a clock. In this age of smart technology - it’s not needed but a quick glimpse of a clock in the middle of the night is more convenient then searching for your phone..... Will definitely return. Definitely recommend. Looking forward to the next visit. A favorite Disney Resort now. Glad we decided to stay here! Until next time Mickey! Read less
