Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Setting is extremely relaxing and the staff is very helpful and friendly. We loved walking around the property and checking out the views and planning our day each morning. We also loved the quirkiness of the restaurant but were disappointed in the quality of the food at breakfast each morning. Almost all of our food was served warm not hot and it was just the two of us. I would love to stay at this resort again but may choose a different place to eat breakfast.
My family (2 adults, 1 child age 6) just got back from a great week long stay at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.Until this visit, we had stayed at all of the deluxe resorts with the exception of the Wilderness Lodge and Grand Floridian. We were excited to see what it was like and see how it ranked up against our favorite resort...Disney's Yacht Club. The lodge is beautiful and wonderfully located in a peaceful spot right nearby Magic Kingdom. You really are close but feel away from it all. It was relaxing to come back to after being at the parks or just enjoying some time at the pool. There was construction going on but we never really noticed it. Disney does a great job at keeping the noise and appearance of renovating hidden. We loved our room. We booked the Courtyard View, bunk bed room. We were near an elevator on floor 4 with a wonderful view of the courtyard and pool area.I loved the boat service to the Magic Kingdom, Contemporary and Ft. Wilderness. For dining, you have so many great options nearby without having to visit a park or take a bus---which for our travel week was huge because it rained every single day. For dining, we loved the Whispering Canyon Cafe for dinner (the new york strip steak and western nachos were delicious) and enjoyed dining daily at the new Geyser Point Bar and Grill. This Bar and grill quick service concept is great...I hope other resorts follow the Wilderness Lodge with this concept. The food and service were wonderful for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Overall it was a great vacation at the Wilderness Lodge. We love the Yacht Club best (location and their pool can't be beat) but we will definitely stay at the Wilderness Lodge again. The staff and experience were wonderful.We will back for the week of Christmas to stay at the last deluxe resort not stayed at on our list...Grand Floridian.
We've stayed in many of the Disney Vacation Club resorts, this is one of my favorites. My WDW trip is not complete without walking the lobby of the Wilderness Lodge, taking in the rustic ambiance, the lodge pole pine ceiling, the five story stone fireplace, the footbridge crossing the hot springs, and finally the geiser.
Of the Disney deluxe hotels this was the least expensive. That being said it is still pricey, but we think the reason the room rate is lower here is because of its location--not as convenient as the other deluxe hotels. We stayed here because our son and his family were staying at Fort Wilderness and we thought it would be convenient, but that wasn't the case (but that's another story altogether). The room was very comfortable. The hotel doesn't offer many rooms with king beds, so we opted for the room with two queen beds which turned out just fine. There is a small table in the room so you could bring your own breakfast food if you wanted to (there is also a small refrigerator in the room and a coffee maker). There is a two-sink vanity area outside of the bathroom which we love for its convenience. As one would expect at any Disney property, the staff is remarkable. I wish I could be as kind to the Disney buses which transport you to the theme parks. There is a new wrinkle at the bus stops. They now have signs indicating arrival times of the different buses, so you have a fairly good idea of your wait time. However, and this is huge, the buses are so cold that you could literally run the risk of hyperthermia if you rode the bus back from the water parks. We were to,d the drivers couldn't change the temperature on the bus. All in all, though, Wilderness Lodge is a great Disney experience.
It's a very convenience hotel to stay to visit Disney World, we never have to wait for second bus or ferry to go to or from the hotel to any parks. The hotel was in contruction during our stay but it's not in our way, not a single noise. The only thing we missed is one of the restaurant that closed during the renovation. Thank you
