Stayed with family for a week. DVC. What a fabulous resort. Rooms were clean. Pool was great. Gym was perfect. Whispering Canyon was a great time. Great service! Bus transportation and boat transportation was timely and professional. Check in was easy. Fortunately we had no issues the entire stay. Our interaction with staff members were limited. The only weird thing was our room did not have a clock. In this age of smart technology - it’s not needed but a quick glimpse of a clock in the middle of the night is more convenient then searching for your phone.....

Will definitely return. Definitely recommend. Looking forward to the next visit. A favorite Disney Resort now. Glad we decided to stay here! Until next time Mickey!

From the shenanigans at Whispering Canyon Cafe to the Copper Creek Springs Pool overflowing with fun, I’m thrilled to know your visit with us was truly magical.

We had a great time visiting Disney's Wilderness Lodge! While this resort did not make my top 5 favorite Disney resorts, the grounds of the resort are very pretty and definitely worth checking out at least once. Disney's Wilderness Lodge celebrates the great northwest American National Parks Service lodges with a beautiful 8-story, split-log lodge by the same architect who designed Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. In the resort lobby, there are 4 large Native American inspired tepee chandeliers, 2 tall 55-foot high totem poles, multi-colored Native American style flooring, and an 82-foot tall fireplace which is a recreation of the strata of the Grand Canyon. With Over 100 colors, 2 billion years are represented in the time it took for the layers of rock to form.

A beautiful natural looking hot spring originates inside the Wilderness Lodge lobby, continues outside, flows into a pretty waterfall, and flows all the way to the swimming pool to add a very serene natural look to the property. Follow the springs path behind the pool area to see a really cool 120 foot Fire Rock Geyser that erupts hourly from 7am to 10pm.

The Silver Creek Springs Pool is fed from the hot spring originating in the lobby and is encompassed in a small forest of trees and rocks. The pool's water-slide is built into quite a pretty natural looking rock formation but unfortunately is a bit too short and shorter than the slide at many other resorts. Next to the pool, there is a very hot tub, mild temperature hot tub, and a kids interactive water play area with 2 slides for kids only. There is an additional quiet pool area is entirely separated from Silver Creek Springs Pool, located at the Boulder Ridge Villas.

Other activities include: an arcade, jogging trail, volleyball courts, camp fire s'mores, nightly movies on the beach, volleyball courts, gym, sauna, fishing excursions for a fee, bike rentals for a fee, Wonders of the Lodge Art and Architecture Tour, nightly Electrical Water Pageant Boat Parade.

For a natural feel, I prefer the Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort over the Wilderness Lodge because the slide is longer, the place has more animal interactions, and more hot tubs.

Well Brian, this is a walking billboard for Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and I love it! It seems like you know all the ins and outs of this beautiful location, and I really appreciate you sharing. Did you know this Resort actually offers an hour-long art and architecture tour on select days of the week?! It may be worth stopping by if you get a chance! Honestly, there isn’t much that I can say that you haven’t, and I’m so excited that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. So when you’re ready to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors again, we’ll be ready to welcome you home! Brittany Disney Social Reviews

Spent 11 nights in this wonderful resort. From the moment we drove into the property, we were mesmerized. The front of the resort is spectacular; large, grand and wooden. The lobby area is beautiful. The pools and grounds are great. You would come just to spend time here, forget going to the parks!
The room was clean, nicely decorated and had all the amenities one would expect including fridge, coffee pot and toiletries.
The staff were all lovely. Housekeeping were great. Security at the gate friendly and courteous. The CMs throughout the resort were kind and welcoming and ensured we were having a good time.
The property has so much to do. Boats run from wilderness lodge to the magic kingdom, contemporary resort and fort wilderness. Buses run to all other theme parks. Plenty of parking and valet parking also. The pools are wonderful with slide, a kids pool etc. You can rent bikes to cycle to the campgrounds. Boat rentals and fishing also available. There is a campfire in the evenings, fun by the pools, a range of activities run throughout the day. There is a salon/spa for treatments, a gym, and free morning yoga twice a week which was happened by the pool. There is a gift shop on property, as well as 2 great quick service restaurants, table service and fine dining, lounges, and an outdoor bar. We often ate in the quick service roaring fork (turkey sandwich is great as is the soft serve ice cream), and also dinner is whispering canyon which was good fun!
I enjoyed this resort so much I purchased DVC so I can happily return for the next 50 years!

Well, howdy! Welcome to our Disney Vacation Club family! Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is such a magical place to spend time with your family, and I am delighted that you enjoyed our corner of the great outdoors so much, you couldn’t leave without making it your home! This locale does such an outstanding job of combining rustic with grandeur, and your photos truly exemplify that – I appreciate you sharing them with me along with your review. You are so right when you say you could spend time here without venturing out to our Theme Parks. I can see it now: a late start to the morning, some pool time, maybe a bike ride or a boat ride along the Seven Seas Lagoon, maybe a spa treatment in the middle, followed by a delicious meal? I don’t know about you, but I’ve got this kind of day on my calendar! We are so excited to welcome you home for your next visit. Until then, y'all! Jenn Disney Social Reviews

We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge May 5th-11th. We booked a standard view with 2 queen beds because the room location is not important to us. Our room was located on the 4th floor and we had a nice spot above whispering canyon. We were pleased to find that they had upgraded our room to bunk beds, my children were thrilled! The view was of trees which wasn’t a big deal, at night you were able to see the fireworks from Magic kingdom through the trees. The room was clean and had so much character to it. The only negative I can think of is that throughout the evening and morning when we were actually in the room we heard constant flushing of toilets which was so strange to me. It got annoying at times but I dealt with it. We tried all of the restaurants in the resort and they were all wonderful. They offer great snack options as well at roaring fork! The pool was fantastic. They have staff outside playing games in and out of the pool with the kids which my daughter really liked. The kiddie water play area was really nice and behind that they have 2 fantastic hot tubs. The boat service was awesome, we were able to go right to the Contemporary, Fort Wilderness and Magic Kingdom on a short boat ride! Geyser Point Grill is a great place to hang out and have a drink or meal, I met up with some old friends here for a cocktail and they even had organic root beer for my son! It is right on the water which makes it a beautiful location . They also have TVs everywhere with games going for the sports fans. At night you have a great view of the Magic kingdom fireworks as well as the lights parade on the water from Geyser Point. They also have the movie under the stars and pool, table tennis and foosball around the corner. The landscaping was beautiful, they really pay attention to details and keep up with maintaining the overall theme. The gym was also a great feature, we were able to use it and it had a nice selection of machines. The arcade had a good selection of games, unfortunately we had issues getting a lot of the games to work but the front desk refunded us our money for the game cards without us even asking. Great service and staff, everyone was very friendly and always wanted to go the extra mile to help us. The lobby is huge and breathtaking, the little details everywhere make it so special. The fireplaces throughout the resort give it a cozy and welcoming feeling. Overall the Wilderness Lodge was an incredible experience for us, it made our vacation extra special and gave us amazing memories of another trip to Disney!

Wilderness Lodge is one of my favorite Resorts and you explained exactly why. With a great atmosphere, food to match, wonderful service, a pool area like no other, and so much more, it all just makes staying here a treat. Not to mention, watercraft transportation is my favorite way to get around property; so that is definitely a plus! Having a Resort that feels like home while you vacation is one of the most comforting feelings, so I’m thrilled you felt so welcome. There is something so unique about walking into the massive lobby where the wood is abounding and a fire is always crackling. You can typically find me rocking away in front of the fire listening to the babbling brook behind me. Do you hear that? It’s the sound of the great outdoors calling your name. We hope you’ll answer it soon… until then. Brittany Social Reviews
