It is amazing how Disney makes their resorts look exactly like the theme. Supposed to be a lodge from the Pacific NW and that is exactly where you will think you are. The lobby is amazing and the attention to detail will blow you away. It comes with a Disney price tag but it is a unique experience.

We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge in the last week of May, 2014 and were very happy to have chosen this location among other hotels and lodging options in Orlando. Every time we visit Disney, we choose a new Disney Resort, AND we were so glad that we chose this one. Well, Kudos to my wife for all her Research before booking! Wilderness Lodge boasts of Great service, Great food and Great recreational activities. Our Housekeeping Attendant was just unbelievable. She was not only thorough in her cleaning but went above and beyond to create beautiful animals with wash cloths and hand towels for our little princess. This shows her passion for what she does day in and day out and loves it sincerely! The attendant at the breakfast outlet was wonderful. She went out of her way to greet the patrons and ensure all is well. Food quality was great as well. The shuttle drivers will also keep you entertained when you are being picked up and dropped off from and to the airport. The gift shop staff is wonderful, the recreational (bicycle rental) staff is wonderful..., the bell staff, the staff that weighs your luggage outside the entrance doors-kiosk for airlines etc., were wonderful...I could go on and on.....but you get the idea...EVERYONE you will encounter will be phenomenal Truly a haven for a family that simply wants to have a beautiful time on their vacation. I strongly recommend the Wilderness Lodge to those on the fence when seeking out a great location. You will not go wrong with this beautiful hotel. Its a hands down best choice, and we have stayed at other hotels and resorts at Disney, prior to staying at Wilderness Lodge. So far for us...this one takes the whole basket of accolades. There was only ONE con----we had to leave Disney and this lodge to come back to Jersey! :) But, the positive is...we will now know where to go to when we visit Disney again! :)

I will start this off with a disclaimer. I have lived in the wilderness and this is not "authentic wilderness". But that doesn't mean it isn't a great resort.

We are frequent Walt Disney World visitors. By frequent I mean 4-7 trips per year over the past decade. We have stayed at many Disney resorts in each price range and our recent stay at Disney's Wilderness Lodge was by far our favorite. The resort theme is superb. The level of details around the resort from the landscaping to the building structure to each inch of the lobby are amazing. The room itself is another treat. Very spacious with a vanity outside of the bathroom to expedite the process of getting ready in the morning.

The resort location is also wonderful. Fort Wilderness is a short walk (10 mins) or boat ride away for the free Chip and Dale's Campfire Singalong and Movie or the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue show. Magic Kingdom is also a short bus (5 mins) or boat (12 mins) ride away. I can't comment on the busses to the other resorts as we rented a car (which we highly recommend).

Pros:
- Location and Proximity to Magic Kingdom and Fort Wilderness
- Resort Pool has a slide
- 2 outdoor hot tubs
- Amazing attention to detail in the theme
- Quiet rooms if you aren't overlooking the lobby
- Spacious rooms
- Housekeeping set up stuffed animals to be "watching tv" when we returned at night
- Very friendly/helpful staff


Cons:
- Limited area to (free) park your car if you choose not to valet
- Some rooms can be very spread out and a decent walk from lobby (10 mins)
- Most resort restaurants require a reservation to be made well in advance
- Small food court can get mobbed at peak times (hour plus wait for food)

Room Tip: Avoid rooms by the lobby. The lobby gets very very loud especially when meals are being served at Whispering Canyon Cafe (starts at like 730AM!)

Our family has stayed here twice with the last being last summer. This is one of our favorite Disney Resorts. The location makes it so appealing. On the banks of Bay Lake this resort has something for everyone. A great pool and incredible views. You can take a boat over to the Magic Kingdom or over to Fort Wilderness. I am a runner and they have several trails around the resort for running or just a walk. You will see a lot of animal in the area as well. They have boat rentals as well, we always rent a boat to take out on Bay Lake. There are two wonderful restaurants as well as an average Food Court by Disney standards. Having stayed at multiple Disney Resorts since 1993 this is a Top 5 for me and my family.

This was my first time bringing my kids (3&5) to Disney World and first time staying at a Disney theme resort and I will now do it every time. The shuttle system by boat and bus makes getting anywhere so easy, I think the longest we had to wait was 10 min for a ride in our 2 weeks there. The resort itself was awesome, beautiful front lobby area and the main restaurant in the lobby was our favorite place to eat at Disney and that's saying something with all the great restaurants that Disney has to offer. Would recommend getting a meal plan, just makes everything so easy. Our room was a little small and I wish we were facing the fireworks but it did the trick because we were not there very much because there is so much to do. We had a room with a bunk bed that our kids really loved.

Room Tip: try to get a room high up facing the Magic Kingdom so you can see the fireworks.
