This was our first time visiting Disney with children. After extensive research I opted to book a 2 bedroom Villa at the Wilderness Lodge. Stayed with 2 toddlers, husband and 2 grandparents. We asked for woods view highest floor, not facing recycling. Got just that. Beautiful view of woods and lake on 4th floor. Villa was equipped with full kitchen,... More

We paid cash for this reservation through Disney. We are not affiliated with DVC in any way and did not rent points. This is a review from the point of view of someone paying cash for the rental, not someone who has a vested interest in the property by being an owner. We really enjoyed our stay. I had almost...

i thought i wouldn't like the theming of this place. Once we got there and checked in, though, i realized it was very cozy. The lobby was very grand and welcoming. Our room was a 1 BR villa, 5th floor. We had a huge balcony. it overlooked the woods, pool, and if you turned to the left once you were... More

We just returned from a four day long stay in a one-bedroom villa at the Wilderness Lodge. The first thing I noticed upon entry into the grand lobby was the wonderful, subtle smell of cedar in the lobby and the public areas. Our room was clean, well furnished, with a lovely view of the woods. The nicely equipped kitchen allowed... More

My husband, son (5), daughter (3) and parents stayed and this resort in March. It was everything we hoped it would be! We had a two bedroom/two bath villa on the 3rd floor. If possible request a room toward the front or middle of the building. The rooms facing the back are over the recycling area. When you are sitting... More

The Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is a Disney Vacation Club Resort. DVC members can use timeshare points to stay here. I am really happy with the newly refurbished deluxe studio rooms, the overall look and feel of the room is much improved, the new décor, furniture, TV, and flooring is nice. I felt very at home and comfortable in... More

We recently had our first stay at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge. We were transferring from another hotel so we arrived at 4.15 to be told our room wasn't ready. We weren't too bothered and waited in the lobby. 30 minutes later they said our room was ready. We went to the room and couldn't get access. My wife went... More

We love this resort and the kids liked the refurbished studio rooms with the fold down bed so they didn't have to share the sofa bed. The bathroom is a bit tight for space but the room was great. (The table disappears when the bed folds down which wasn't super convenient for breakfast.). The amenities are great here! Fitness facilities... More

We stayed in a studio with our family of four for 1 week at the end of July. We had very mixed feelings about this property. We love the Wilderness Lodge and all the beauty and amenities it offers. Unfortunately, it feels like there is too much of a disconnect between the Wilderness Lodge and the Villas at the Wilderness... More

We stayed here for a few days in a studio villa before heading over to Vero Beach. Our 3 year old enjoyed the twin sized murphy bed - especially the bambi artwork. The highlight of the trip was the newly renovated splash pad. Its a great design - finally some water slides for the preschool set! Our son spent hours... More
