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 stayed this time in suite 5107 which is need of massive CLEANING and a serious refresh. If I felt like wasting hours today with house keeping I would but this is not what Disney normally provides.

We stayed this time in suite 5107 which is need of massive CLEANING and a serious refresh. If I felt like wasting hours today with house keeping I would but this is not what Disney normally provides. From the rusted shower fixtures, left over dander (gross) and what’s left of the tub... it’s really pathetic to pay $1k a night for a ‘suite’ that inside smells like trash as it is directly next to the trash room and it smells. It’s so noisy here. Terrible non existent management and they used the ‘we thought this was a DVC stay and that why we didn’t clean your room for 3 days....’ the bird poop all over the windows that are you view... oh well what a waste of money! Stay elsewhere as this property is not what you normally expect from Disney. They need to close it and rethink what it’s identity is too. Mismatched appliances and food crumbs all over under everything you look at when sitting at the ‘kitchen table’ or the couch. Here the pictures speak for themselves. Total failure by the management. Time to clean house there literally and figuratively. So sad. Read less

The Wilderness Lodge is a great hotel. You feel so far removed from the Magic Kingdom, even though it is right around the corner of a tree line.

The Wilderness Lodge is a great hotel. You feel so far removed from the Magic Kingdom, even though it is right around the corner of a tree line. You can transport to the Magic Kingdom via bus or boat (the boat ride is more fun than the bus), and an important benefit of the boat is you have your own personal security check station once you depart the boat, the lines are much shorter than security at the park. The hotel has several restaurants / lounges, we frequented the Geyser point bar and grill, the Roaring Fork and the Territory Lounge. There are two swimming pools the main pool (busy) and one in the villa area (more quiet). The overall grounds of the resort are beautiful, with a small creek that starts in the lobby and flows all the way to the swimming pool, and there is also a geyser that goes off hourly. The lobby is awesome, with a 7 story open design, fireplace, gift shop, etc. The rooms are small, the smallest of any Disney deluxe hotel. We had a courtyard view, but feel it was not worth the extra money, as you really don’t spend much time in the room, plus there are too many other great places to sit and relax with a view. We had no issues with the buses, we expect to wait upwards of 20 minutes anyway, so the buses are a non issue. Overall, the resort is a great place to stay. Read less
