Family stayed at resort 6/26/14-7/4/14, This was our 4th stay at WL and we weren't disappointed. Service is top notch. When we arrived at night, we needed additional towels for our room. My wife called to housekeeping and they promptly delivered the towels. My wife asked the housekeeping attendant if she had a specific night-time tea, and she replied that... More

Wilderness lodge is ok but there are much nicer Disney hotels than this one - if your going to spend the money stay at the contemporary or the Polynesian - the lobby is kinda cool but you really don't spend time there - the room has 2 double beds and a small bathroom and a TV - that was it... More

I'm giving this resort an average rating compared to my recollections of staying at Polynesian and Animal Kingdom Lodge. We went with our children, then ages. 4 and 2 years. I'm not sure if it was the ages of our children, my mental well-being at the time, the rainy days, or the small size of the room, but we sure... More

So we checked in for the holiday weekend (July 3-6). We booked a standard room with the bunk beds for three nights. We are Florida residents and Disney annual pass holders but because we knew the parks would be crowded we were just coming to stay at the resort and enjoy the resort, something we never do because we are...

We have 2 young kids (ages 1.5 & 5) and wanted a hotel that was close to the Magic Kingdom and had easy access for nap time. We didn't want to spend the extra $200 on a Disney hotel with monorail access but also didn't want to stay at a value resort since we had read reviews that the bus... More

So the week is out and I rate the lodge a 4.5 star stay. The reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because the smoking section is right by the walkway to the villas so visitors have to walk through smoke every time you go to or from your room. Yuk. Other than that, it was very nice,... More

Nice place to lay our heads for a few days. Even if we did overlook the smoke house- we also got to see the Magic Kingdom fireworks when we were in the room when they went off. Great water pressure and toiletries provided are top notch and smell so good. They were very prompt with any request we had and... More

If you have kids this is not the place to stay. Not kid friendly at all.. The front desk staff was not friendly at all. The rooms are no bigger than a value resort.. For the money you will spend on this resort you are better off getting a suite at art of animation.. That is a lot more kid... More

Our family of 4 stayed at the Wilderness Lodge in the middle of June 2014. The resort is impressive in scale and in one word, awesome. We have 2 boys ages 6 and 8 and they loved the place. It's very rustic and outdoorsy. The staff, as with most of Disney, was extremely friendly and answered every question we had.... More
