Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is a deluxe resort at Walt Disney World with a luxury-rustic theme referencing the beauty of a turn-of-the-century National Parks resort lodge. The resort is located in the Magic Kingdom Area, just across Bay Lake from Disney’s Contemporary Resort and the Magic Kingdom.
The theme at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is gorgeous, with rustic wood texture and craftsman touches. The lobby soars above guests with totem poles and a massive stone fireplace with rocking chairs all around. The lobby is also home to the mouth of a bubbling creek that flows out into the resort’s courtyard, creating a breathtaking waterfall view. The resort grounds also have beautiful walking trails through the wooded surroundings.
The resort’s main pool is located in this courtyard, the Silver Creek Springs Pool, along with a kids’ splash play area. There is also a secondary Hidden Springs pool located in the new Boulder Ridge Villas area. This area and the pool have been part of the construction for the new Disney Vacation Club villas, but are expected to open this year.
The resort’s available room options can sleep up to 4 adults with 2 queen beds, and for kids there is also an option with a queen bed and a bunk bed. There are also deluxe Club-Level rooms with 2 queen beds and a queen-size sleeper sofa that can sleep up to 6 adults.
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has a dining venue for any type of experience you’re seeking. There’s Roaring Fork for quick-service and grab-and-go items (this will also re-open once the refurbishment at this resort is complete), and the newly opened Geyser Point Bar & Grill serves a light breakfast and a hearty lunch and dinner quick-service menu. If you’re looking for fun casual dining, try out the delicious and playfully rowdy Whispering Canyon Café. The lodge also offers quiet and refined Signature dining at Artist Point with a menu celebrating Pacific Northwest cuisine. Like all Walt Disney World on-site hotels, these restaurants accept the Disney Dining Plan.
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge offers bus service to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Disney Springs. Boat service is available to the Magic Kingdom, and boats can also take guests to the nearby Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. The resort does not typically share buses with any other resort, and so has direct transportation to the theme parks.
