Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
There are some extensive building works going on at Wilderness Lodge. To be fair we heard little noise, at least when we were there. What is sad for us, after coming here almost every year for the past 15 years, is that the actual Wilderness surrounding the Lodge is being gradually eroded. We used to walk along the edge of the lake and see some wonderful wildlife; deer, Osprey, Eagles, Pelicans, and even an Armadillo (a few years ago). The way to this area is now blocked as they build what looks like wooden Chalets along the Lakeside, similar to those at the Polynesian Resort. We had to be content with walking to the Wilderness Campground along the cycle path next to the road. We were able to see some Deer hiding in the undergrowth along the way, but it's not quite the same. We will definitely return after the works have finished and hope Disney works it's magic and still gives it's guests a little of the Wilderness to chill out in after the frenetic Parks!The Lodge itself is magnificent, the lobby is full of huge Totem poles which climb 5 or 6 floors to the roof! I can recommend Artists Point for an excellent high quality dinner. Get the Dining Plan if you can get a deal on it included in the room price. If you have plans to eat in the Contemporary Resort ensure you allow plenty of time to get there if going by the ferries, sometimes they go via the campground first. Use the ferry to get to Magic Kingdom, an awesome way to arrive, and pretty cool going back to the lodge at night after a day in the Park. There is a laundry close to Roaring Forks which now takes card payments instead of cash, much easier. Depending on which side of the Lodge you are on, you may be able to see the fireworks at Magic Kingdom from your room or the grounds.
We loved our time at Wilderness Lodge!!!! It was a highlight of our trip. We did a split stay between Pop Century and Wilderness Lodge which amplified the experience for sure! We got a great deal due to the construction and loved our room. It was a long walk to the elevator but very quiet and we could watch fireworks from bed which was a huge surprise. Loved the pool and the pool staff were so sweet and engaging with our daughter. The boat transportation was awesome. The food was really good too. We will be back and look forward to seeing the resort construction completed.
We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge from may 9th-15th. They put us on the sixth floor corner room facing the magic kingdom. Best room ever! We had a perfect view of the castle and fireworks! The lobby is beautiful and the restaurants are great. Coming back to the lodge after a long day at the parks was wonderful! It's so peaceful and serene. The quick boat ride to MK was perfect! The guys on the boats were awesome! They let my son give signals to the captain and answered all of his questions about everything nautical! He loved it! Mousekeeping was perfect, they always set my kids stuffed animals up and even made them towel animals one day! The beds were super comfortable and much needed after walking in the parks all day. The pool was fantastic and my kids loved the water slide. I've stayed at plenty of Disney properties and the lodge is my new favorite! The construction should be done soon and I can't wait to come back to see it finished. The only negative I can speak of is the fire alarms. They were testing them the entire week we were there. They would go off after 9am for an hour or so...in the rooms....It was definitely loud and did scare my kids a bit. Hopefully, that all wraps up soon. Other than that, it was truly perfect!
A nice boat ride from Magic Kingdom. Great playground, and gated - two areas for two separate age groups. Definitely a hidden gem. Can't wait to come back and try this place again - great to get away from it all even though on Disney property.
Being a DVC member, we had a one br king bed with full kitchen, 2 balconies and large bath with separate shower room with single sink, jet tub with double sink, separate toilet room. Washer and dryer, dishwasher, large walk in closet, front entry closet and 2 large tv's rounded out the amenities. Clean and beautifully designed to be right out of a forest, it was "home". We were on the 5th floor and my only complaint would be that the room was dark. The balconies had walls and overhangs that the lower floors did not. Lights were not enough for my old eyes. Transportation via boat to the Magic Kingdom was less than 10 minutes and a treat in itself! The Electrical Water Pageant alone made the location magical! Staff was efficient and friendly. The geyser, the in lobby stream with bridge, Artist's Point restaurant and Geyser Point bar & grill were great treats!! I'll be back!!
