Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This was my second stay at wilderness Lodge. This time we stayed at boulder ridge villas in a studio. We had three adults and two children. The room was small and the bed and fold out couch uncomfortable. The resort is under refurbishment so the quick service food options were very limited which was disappointing. A rotating menu would've been appreciated. Transportation was great, cleanliness and service at the resort was excellent. I would've rated this visit as 4 stars but due to the refurbishments I gave it three.
As longtime Disney Vacation Club Members, we have had occasion to stay at all the DVC has to offer. We chose Wilderness Lodge (not historically our favorite) because of its proximity to The Magic Kingdom. We did have a nice vantage point of the ongoing construction - we really liked the view of the porta-potties. They claim it will be finished in 2 months. There is nothing to be done about this, it is what it is - not the worst that could happen.My beef is with the lack of attention to detail concerning the maintenance of our room. There were many things that I should not have noticed that should have been taken care of by a crew that cared. It is clear to me that someone is not doing what they should to make sure folks that stay here have the kind of experience they should have.I met with the head maintenance guy, and pointed to the discrepancies, and he agreed with me (but took no notes) on all the issues, and assured me they would be taken care of.
Stayed here in march and it lived up to expectationsCheck in: Disney was able to assign our room early and BC we already had prechecked in online and already received our magic bands we were able to skip the check in desk and went straight to our room, seem lessThe room: we were given a bunk bed room with lake view, the furnishings are nicely themed not over the top but definitely makes it feels like you out in the wilderness with all the trappings. As far as the view there is ongoing construction out front for the new villas they are building fortunately we didn't really notice any construction noise as we were to busy to be out and about, even when we slept in no real noise was heard, in the evening we had a surprise view of the magic kingdom fireworks. The pools are nicely done, loved the illusion that the water flows from the lobby down through the pool. Geyser is a nice touchLocation: this has to be one of the greatest features is its location on bay lake, the boat transportation to magic kingdom is the best since you can avoid the buses and the TTC. Boats were frequent and we never had a lengthy wait for a boat, also during the day you can take the joint boats with fort wilderness also and it makes its first stop at wilderness lodge. Overall the stay at wilderness lodge was great
Our family had a wonderful stay at Wilderness Lodge for our Disney vacation in February. While I had visited Disney several times, this was my first experience staying on property for a multi-day trip. The Wilderness Lodge itself is beautiful and everything is so on theme! We loved being on the water and just a boat ride away from Magic Kingdom and other area resorts. Our room looked over the water and we could see fireworks and the Electric Water Pageant from our balcony. The pool area was great and we ate in all of the hotel restaurants. That served our needs, but I do wish the quick-service option, The Roaring Fork had more options. We were there over Super Bowl weekend and had a great time hanging in the room ordering pizza and snacks and watching the game. There is construction going on, but that did not disrupt our stay. Actually, our one-year-old was fascinated with the trucks and equipment and kept him occupied watching them out the window every morning as we got dressed. Our room was nice, but a tad small, especially with the added pack-n-play. We made an effort to keep ourselves organized for the trip and it worked out nicely to meet our needs. I did find that it was a fairly long walk to the room or across the resort, but I think that is typical for a Disney resort. We would definitely stay here again and I can't wait to plan our next family Disney vacation. It was truly magical.
This place is amazing. The staff is wonderful and they offered me and my family an upgrade without us asking. The room was very clean, big and the view was just breathtaking. We were able to see MK from our room and watch fireworks as well from our room. The pool and restaurants are great as well. Easy to get to MK, Epcot just jump on a boat and or go on the boat then get on monorail. Many activities for the kids to enjoy and the lobby is wonderful. I suggest trying their signature restaurant just make sure to ask for ketchup and you will get a big laugh. We go to Disney every year and stay at two different resorts every year and this is one of our favorite places to stay. It is well worth the extra money for the service and amenities not available at other resorts. The staff make the extra price worth it as well. You won't be disappointed unless your the type of person that goes looking for issues if so and you find it here your probably not going to like any resort lol. Highly recommend this place.
