As DVC members, this was our first visit to the Villas at Wilderness Lodge. We stayed in a studio at the very end of the property. Even though it was a "longer" walk from the elevators, it was worth it because it was VERY quiet! We had more room in this studio versus Grand Floridian. We loved the theme of... More

This was my second visit to the Wilderness Lodge DVC villas, and my husbands first. Overall,it is a beautiful property! We stayed on the top floor in a corner unit and loved everything except the bed. With both of my experiences there, the beds were way below my expectations for the price and level of the resort. A highlight of... More

Our room, on the wooded side of the building that is also used for Disney Vacation Club members, had a peaceful view from the balcony. There's a fireplace and seating area on the lower level and log cabin style construction with an atrium adding to the beautiful natural ambience. The room had a queen bed and queen sofa bed with...

This was our first stay in the Wilderness area. It had the feel of being out in the wilderness, but had the option of taking a boat to the Magic Kingdom. The views from the balcony were very pretty, with pine trees and manicured landscaping. We saw small rabbits, lizards, and even a deer near the parking area. One night,... More

Booked our family of five for our Disney Vacation here. If you have a family of five, this hotel is not a bad deal, as you can fit all five into one room (tight squeeze, but doable). If you have less than that number, better off elsewhere, especially if can get into the main Disney Wilderness Lodge itself, which is... More

This is an update to my prior review. Permits show that Disney is about to expand the Villas at Wilderness Lodge by adding cabin style buildings on the lake side. This means there will be a lot of construction noise coming from the pool/lake side of the resort when they start (guessing around Sept '15) to when they end (the... More

Love pulling up to a disney property and hearing "welcome home". We stayed here from June 5 - June 7. We had a dedicated 2 bedroom with 7 people and it was very comfortable. We are DVC Members and this is our home resort. The resort has been updated since our last stay in 2009 and that was great. The... More

This was our 6th family trip to Disney, and our first time staying at Wilderness Lodge Villas. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa and were delighted with our room. The complete renovation that was done last year at this Villa property was very obvious. Felt brand new, not old. Having the washer drier in your room and the fridge... More

Spent 7 days in early may at the Villas. We are DVC members and this is our "home" location. This is the 3rd time we've stayed here (out of 14 WDW trips over 30 years) and was a replay of 4 generations of my wife's family that we originally did 30 years ago. We had 13 people in 3 suites.... More

We are DVC members and decided to try out the Villas at Wilderness Lodge this trip and we were not disappointed. In fact, we all agreed that we loved everything about it. The main lobby of the Wilderness Lodge and the lobby of the Villas are reminiscent of the Animal Kingdom Lodge and Kidani Village in that it have a... More
