Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
If I could describe this hotel in one word, it would be OVERPRICED. The room we stayed in was small and outdated. Everything on the hotel property is expensive, be prepared to pay $4 for a bottle of water and $3 for a cup of mediocre coffee at Roaring Fork. Whispering canyon (?) restaurant was meh, ambiance was horrendous, service not so good. Again overpriced for what it is.We did not see any towels folded in any special way or anything "magical" for that matter. In all, I was utterly disappointed in this hotel. Things that saved my stay included perks for Disney resort guests (free parking, extra magic hours) and the nice pool. I wouldn't return here.
Wonderfully close to Magic Kingdom. We stayed in a 1 bedroom family suite with 1 bedroom. What I liked:1) Close to Magic Kingdom2) Boat and/or Bus Ride to Magic Kingdom (take the boat, more scenic)3) Full kitchen w/utensils, pots, pans everything you need to make meals4) Full fridge5) Comfortable king size bed6) pull out sleeper sofa7) Full sized washer/dryer8) Gorgeous grounds9) Gieser that goes off every hour10) Although we didn't swim, very nice pool11) Whispering Canyon Cafe (make sure you ask for ketchup)What I didn't like1) 1 Toilet - Although the toilet/shower was in 1 room, and in the next room there was a large tub and another vanity, we would have rather seen another toilet than a tub, but we made it work.2) Bus ride shares dropping off and picking up with Wilderness Campground and/or Contemporary resort guests.What's not to love about anything Disney! It was clean, newly refurbished, and were were in the Lodge House, not the Copper Creek Canyon Villas, as originally stated, they told us we were upgraded, and it was beautiful! Room 6109 was comfortable, quiet (except for the occasional very happy screaming child that ran up and down the hall).
Choose the Wilderness Lodge over the Contemporary, Polynesian Village, Animal Kingdom, Yacht Club , Beach Club and the Grand Floridian. The others are very nice but pricier and the Wilderness Lodge offers super value for the money. Typical Disney Hotel in a unique environment- wood beam Lodge- and great access to the Magic Kingdom and all Disney has to offer. Recently renovated some areas - good pool - good dining at Artisans Point. Can take bus to the Magic Kingdom in five minutes and delivered right to the gate. A boat ride takes longer but a pleasant experience when time is not critical. Get a room overlooking the Magic Kingdom and you can see the nightly fireworks from your porch. Best way to see Disney is staying in one of the better hotels. Enables restaurant reservations six months ahead and fast passes 60 days ahead which are critical to a great time. If you book ask for help to ensure you know all of the angles to having a great time. Super dinner show is the Hoop Dee Doo Review. Disney free Transportation from the Orlando Airport is just a bit less efficient than a cab saving about $75 each way. Check with hotel as to how to utilize this service. No need for a car inside the Disney complex. Take your kids and watch some of the best smiles you will ever see.
After staying at 4 different resorts in one vacation, this is the winner hands down. The architecture is amazing. The lighting at night in the lobby is warm and gives you a cozy feeling. Everywhere you turn is immense detail. I walked around the lobby and grounds for a long time. I was in awe and overwhelmed by the beauty of this resort. The boat ride to Magic Kingdom is very charming. I canâ€™t stress enough how worthwhile it is to stay here.
I have to say, i'm seriously impressed with this resort. There are TONS of things to do, including an arcade, a restaurant, 2 grills for a cook out, and a pool. Each Hotel "room" features 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (one with only a shower and a sink.), a living room, a kitchen, and (finally) 2 porches. The back porch had a HOT TUB. With music and lights! The front porch had a nice bench.The only thing I did not like is that it was a little bit small, and I think it needed an upstairs. Other than that, I loved it!
