Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our stay at the Wilderness Lodge was fantastic. The rooms and service was great, and the direct boat to magic kingdom was a great plus for us. Much better than bus or monorail. Looking forward to staying here again.
Always loved this hotel for its beauty, remote location and stellar customer service, however, had also been frustrated by the lack of available onsite casual dining options, which is the main reason we most often choose the Epcot resort area over Wilderness Lodge in the past. Quite honestly, the only reason we booked here for the last three nights of our recent Spring Break vacation was because our first choice resorts (Beach Club Villas, Boardwalk Villas) were unavailable. Moreover, I was concerned with the ongoing construction, having heard horror stories about the impact of the Polynesian renovations on vacationing guests. Despite my concerns, I moved forward with the booking, and thank goodness I did, as our Wilderness Lodge stay was perfect and far superior to our Beach Club Villas stay. A most welcomed and wonderful surprise was the addition of Geyer Point -- a beautiful lakefront bar and quick service dining facility that provided many hours of quiet relaxation after busy days at the parks. Additionally, that construction we were so worried about actually provided far more intrigue than disruption, as our informal preview of the beautiful Copper Creek villas, cabins and new pool area have actually inspired us to consider buying into the Disney Vacation Club to own a part of this beautiful resort. But the real story here is the Wilderness Lodge staff -- from smiling Barry at check-in, to Pam in housekeeping, to Gary at Artist Point, and finally Bruce at Geyser Point, who most definitely earned a special shout out as a remarkable ambassador of Disney world class service.Thank you Wilderness Lodge! We cannot wait to return.
We have just finished a 10 day vacation at the Wilderness Lodge. The lobby takes your breath away and one I'll remember as very impressive, it really is like a huge lodge with a great attention to detail. The room was very nice and of high quality. We were aware the hotel was undergoing refurbishment which didn't really cause us any problems. Our balcony did overlook villa construction but we were high enough up for this to not be an issue. However peaceful use of the balcony was not really an option as during the day the construction was noisy and dusty. Like I say no real issue but do feel the hotel should be a bit more open about what guests will face, we were in the parks all day but not all guests are the same.All the staff we met very very pleasant, they were very helpful. Sometimes however they appeared a little stressed when busy.We used the in room dining which was excellent. So were the leisure facilities, transport options and pool areas. All added great value to our holiday in the lovely surroundings.This place isn't cheap but nothing in Disney is, however you do get what you pay for and we had a wonderful vacation. I would recommend Wilderness Lodge but would only pay the money again once all the building work has finished. Once this is all done you'll struggle to find a more wonderful place to stay for a family.
Our family of four has stayed at Wilderness Lodge twice. My boys just adore the theming and the bunk bed rooms. It is so charming and cozy. It feels like you are nestled away in the Pacific Northwest but you're just a short boat ride away from Magic Kingdom. The pool and slide are so much fun. The onsite dining options can't be beat. We always look forward to coming back!!!
Being an avid Disney fan, I was extremely excited to stay at my first luxurious Disney hotel after going to Disney numerous times. We checked in early to get our Magic Bands and the process was relatively smooth, but we were not given any information on the resort, things to do, amenities, etc. Also, as a couple we had requested a king bed online, but when we got to the room after a long day of walking around the parks, we were given a room with two small full/queen beds. It was a huge disappointment given this was a romantic trip for us and when I asked about making a change, I was told that it would cost $200 more to get an upgrade with a king bed and they were less than apologetic. (They also kept mentioning some welcome packet that we were supposed to get but didn't) In addition, construction started outside our room at 830am and was a constant. Given the choice, I would have stayed at a much cheaper Disney resort or even off site to get more value for the $$. Would absolutely not stay here again.
