I have stayed here twice and it's beautiful. It's a deluxe resort so a little more expensive but worth it. The standard room was big enough for 2 adults and we were right next to the pool. The atmosphere and staff were great. I definitely recommend this resort and plan to stay here again in the near future.

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Wilderness Lodge and it was very nice. We had a deluxe suite which was a great size for a family (room 1003). It had 2 queen beds and a pull out couch in a separate room with a mini fridge. The staff were all extremely nice and accomodating. The pool... More

Went there with family for spring break. The lobby is very impressive and the staff were all very helpful. The rooms were decent size for a family of four with two young kids and comfortable but you would not want to hang out in the room for an extended period of time unless you were sleeping. Wasn't a problem for... More

This was a trip for me and my three teenage daughters. We chose Wilderness for the convenience to Magic Kingdom without the price of the monorail resorts. The five minute boat ride is very pleasant and the captains are entertaining, so expect corny jokes. The lobby is breathtaking. As we arrived by Magic Express, we were welcomed home. Our room...

After coming to WDW for over 25+ years, it was time to give the Lodge a try. By far the most impressive feature of this hotel would be the lobby—Definite 'WOW!’ factor appeal. The spaciousness and rustic feel took me back to our trip to the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone NP (which we later found out to actually be... More

Whether you a visitor or a DVC member, fun is picking an on-property resort. There is a price (per night) difference if you want to stay on or near the Monorail / Magic Kingdom. The difference ($300 (($500-$200)) per night) is a personal choice and depending on the package rate you find. The bus ride from WDW resorts further away... More

We have stayed at a majority of the onsite hotels at WDW, the Wilderness Lodge is at the top of our list. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, great location and pools are fun. You can easily get to the Magic Kingdom by boat, it's only a short walk along a nice path to Fort Wilderness. On site restaurants are pretty good,... More

This place like most of Disney's is magical. You really feel you are in the wild with lots of comfort. We got a great pool and lake view from our room and had a fantastic time. The breakfast at the Grand Canyon Cafe was quite fun and the personnel was truly friendly and funny. Make sure to order ketchup!!! You'll... More

We have stayed at the Wilderness Lodge before so it was an easy choice again. The lodge has a great location as you are only a 5 minute boat ride from the magic kingdom. It is the most realistic south western lodge you will find in the south. The only disappointing things we encountered were the scaffolding they had up... More

The Wilderness Lodge is beautiful from the moment you walk through the lobby doors. This trip was just my husband and I. We were greeted promptly by a cast memeber after getting off the Magical Express. Our room was not ready when we arrived, so we used that time to explore the property. We got a text 45 minutes later... More
