The real Florida!
Nov 2021
This preserve is spectacular! Travel back in time and see Florida before the developers arrived. It’s like the Ocala National Forest without the litter. The Nature Conservancy does an amazing job maintaining this beautiful property. The trails are well marked and easy to follow. There’s a 2.5 mile loop trail that takes you to Lake Russell with an additional 3.6 mile trail if you’re up to the challenge. The welcome center has ample parking and restrooms. After that it’s all nature. If you’re looking to unplug from the theme parks and visit the real Florida, this is the place. FREE
Highly recommended!

Gorgeous Afternoon
Jun 2021 • Family
What a way to take a lunchbreak. 100% Lovely. No NOISE. Pure Quiet. Have you really listened ?
No loud tailpipe/muffler sound reving. No squealing tires. No loud cell phone conversations for the neighbors to have to listen to. Listen for Birds chirping and singing. Watch the Sandhill Cranes play or dance. Smell clean Air. What an Atmosphere. See you next week . 😍

This looks like a wonderful place from the photos and we were excited to explore more of Florida and it's nature.

Very nice wilderness environment/great staff people
Feb 2020
Learned much about the local wilderness and how it was established with a super guide, Daniel Cole. I believe this is a much overlooked opportunity to see a unique activity/site managed by the Nature Conservancy.

Sunday Stroll
Feb 2020
When you're ready to escape the hustle of life, this is a great place to visit. I took the short trail; <3 miles, I believe. I would recommend proper footwear; a more sturdy shoe than tennis shoes. The peaceful sound of the wind blowing through the trees was the loudest noise enjoyed. Again, a great escape.

Good Walking Trail
Feb 2020
Most of the reviews read prior to our experiencing Disney Wilderness were what we encountered. Trails were very easy to walk. We saw no wild life except for dragon flies and butterflys and not many of them. There were benches usually at crossing points or at the end of the trail. If you have a person with you who needs to rest frequently you may want to reconsider. The trail to the lake has a bench and picnic table and shade. Some of the reviews indicated the trail being mudding. It was plain to see why as there were areas which were lower on the trail and you could see where the mud could be a problem. Walk was good and easy.

Nice quiet reserve which is good for a walk. We didn't see a lot of wildlife on our visit but still enjoyable. Nice to get away from the commercialism of Kissimmee and see the real landscape.

Meander the trails, watch the birds... relax!
Feb 2020 • Friends
If you are tired of the strip malls and traffic and need to take a break from the various Orlando area parks, spending an afternoon at The Disney Wilderness Preserve is a wonderful idea! Check the open hours, take a short drive, but make sure you bring your hat, sunscreen, water... and if you like, a picnic lunch! There are picnic tables near the Welcome Area and benches at various spots along the trails. When you enter, you’ll be asked to sign in and pick up a trail map. Make sure you walk over to Lake Russell if you don’t do any other hiking... it really is a lovely spot.

If you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Orlando and see something of the natural Florida then spend a few hours exploring the trails. A beautifully maintained park without the crowds.

Early afternoon trip. Not a lot to see as far as wildlife, 8 turkeys, 1 Turtle Dove, couple butterflies, several tiny lizards. Water was high so trails were wet . Unseasonably warm and very very humid.
