A little back story: Our original trip was to include another family. Since we have been to Disney multiple times and it was going to be the first and possibly only trip for our friends...we decided to let them choose our resort. Explaining the different resort categories offered (Value; Moderate; Deluxe; Deluxe Villas), our friends chose The Wilderness Lodge. Being... More

Another great DVC property that has been kept up very well over the years. I love staying at the Lodge, especially around the holidays. We've never run into a room we didn't like here, except for once. Unless you require a room with features for the mobility impaired, I'd suggest requesting a standard room. While, of course, those rooms are... More

We stayed in a 1 BR Villa in mid-November. Villas building beautiful, pool lovely (was rather busy with the main pool closed, and a lot of floating debris and hair, which was not so lovely). Arcade at main Wilderness Lodge building small and dated compared with other WDW resorts. Roaring Fork seems too small for a resort this size -... More

We are DVC members so we visit Disney World often. We have stayed in the lodge before, but this was our first time in the villas. As usual, the room was clean and well appointed. I know they had just re-done these villas. The one item I would have LOVED is the sleeper chair you can find in some other... More

This was my third occasion to use Sturdy Branches at Disney's Wilderness Lodge villas. I've had excellent service each time and this is my spa of choice when visiting Disney World. The location is serene and inviting, the staff are friendly and attentive. I consider this place a well-kept secret!

Recently stayed at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge for the first time last week for the weekend with my wife. We checked in early at 11:00 and ended up having to wait 'til 4pm to finally get into our studio room. A little frustrating as you would imagine but we decided to take up on lunch in the resort and... More

I brought my daughter, son in law, and granddaughter to Disney to celebrate her 5th birthday. We had a one bedroom villa ---- my granddaughter and I shared the pullout bed in the living room. No complaints about anything!!! Beautiful place to stay, my balcony overlooked the small pool, the rooms were great, so convenient to have a washer and... More

We spent 7 days in a 2-bedroom villa at the wilderness lodge. We rented 'points' from a timeshare holder to make this somewhat more affordable. We were on the top floor and had a nice lake view. The theme of the entire resort is top notch - definitely impressive. The main pool was closed for renovations but my small children... More

We just returned from a 12 day visit to Disney World and we stayed in a very nice Deluxe Studio at Villas at Wilderness Lodge for several days. The rooms have been recently remodeled and the changes are really awesome. There was ample room, great decor, a lot of closet space and plenty of drawer storage. The in room kitchenette... More

We spent three nights during Thanksgiving week at the Villas of the Wilderness Lodge. The Christmas decorations were just beautiful. When you stay at the Villas, you check in at the main Wilderness Lodge building. We arrived mid evening and our room was ready. We had a studio. Although the room was perfect for our needs, it was probably in... More
