This is the second time we've stayed at the Wilderness Lodge. I have to say that alongside Animal Kingdom Lodge, this is my families favorite resort. Having that said I love the beauty of its lodge, pool and grounds. After months of planning and a 6am flight from NJ, we arrived early for our checkin. I had requested an early check-in wks earlier and were very excited to get into our room. The first person that we came into contact with at the front desk was "Marie". Now I've stayed on Disney property 7 times and every time we've checked in we were met with nice, upbeat happy people. We've been given everything from balloons, stickers to buttons. Well this time was the exception. This woman was the crankiest, nasty person. We approached the front desk expecting the regular Disney service and got Marie. I attempted to make small talk with her and mentioned that we had requested an early check-in and she grumbled about how full they were having had so many check ins the night before. Now I don't know about you but when you make a reservation 2 months prior you expect to be accommodated. After hours of pacing around the hotel and this wonderful reception we finally were able to check into our room an hour early. I will say in their defense, the nice thing that the management did was upgrade us to a larger room. I think they should retrain some of the staff or put them somewhere else, not in customer service (concierge).

Thank you for stopping by to share an honest review of your recent visit to Disney's Wilderness Lodge. While I am thrilled to learn that this is one of your family's favorite locations to visits, I'm disheartened your stay did not start off on the right foot this time. Please know our Cast Members do try to do everything in their power to ensure our Guests requests are met and they are walking into a clean and ready room upon their arrival. However, delays can occur for any number of reasons. While I am happy to see you were able to speak with a Resort Leader, I do apologize for the wait prior to checking in to your room. We fully expect our Cast Members to provide outstanding service in a professional and courteous manner at all times, and I regret this was not your experience during your visit. Please be assured your feedback has been shared with the appropriate teams to ensure we are providing world-class Guest service in every instance. I appreciate you sharing the good and not-so-good aspects of your visit. We hope we'll be welcoming you back home again real soon. Zoey Disney Social Reviews

We stayed here late July 2021 and WL saved our trip after a really disappointing Polynesian stay (and these rooms were half the cost of the Poly!) We did have a ground floor nature view room which wasn’t my favorite, but there was no way to request higher floors in the app which would be a nice add. But good way outweighed the bad. There were always seats at pool, the geyser was going off hourly again which is fun. Bell services promptly arrived with our bags that had been transferred from Poly and picked them up within minutes on departure. We had a *little* hiccup with quick service mobile order at Geyser Point but not taking off points bc though it was frustrating, the manager fixed it for us while we were onsite which is all we needed. Absolutely amazing professional service from Josh at Geyser Point bar. The boys loved Gus Gus’ antics at Whispering Canyon. If you are going, I’d read the website carefully so you are aware of current housekeeping protocol, we were prepared but it does feel odd to be taking out the trash at a deluxe resort. The arcade room was still a popular hit with the kids, it’s well maintained and clean and even after a Disney day the kids loved hitting up the games that are all reasonably priced. This was my second Wilderness Lodge stay and I thank the cast members for redeeming our view of Disney Resorts.

While I'm truly sorry Disney's Polynesian Village was a disappointment for your recent stay, it is nice to know you found comfort and relaxation with us here. You certainly rolled with any snags that came your way and that's much appreciated as we continue to work through such situations with our Guests. I'm delighted to know that our Leadership and Cast Members, like Josh and Gus Gus, made Disney's Wilderness Lodge feel like your home away from home. Please rest assured that your review, compliments, insights, and all, has been received by Resort Leadership as well. With such tranquil luxury awaiting you, I'm sure we'll see you again soon!

Beautiful hotel. Territory Lounge is a hidden gem. Kelly at the bar is very personable Kelsey at the front desk was a joy with a contagious personality The rooms in the boulder creek look like something from my grandmothers in the 1970’s Hard to fathom how Disney considers this a deluxe hotel

My family was very excited to stay at a Disney resort as this was our first time staying at any Disney resort. We had high expectations but was met with a number of disappointing issues from the moment we got here. We pulled up and there was no one in sight for at least 10 minutes to help us with our luggage. Finally my wife went inside to the front desk to ask for assistance. Once we got to our room, we noticed the courtyard view room we booked was just a view of a huge tree blocking any sort of view. Keep in mind we paid extra for a room with a view. Not to mention the room was dusty and had left over candy all over the floor which we had to pick up ourselves as we were traveling with a toddler! We complained twice to the front desk and they were of no assistance saying they don’t have any rooms to offer us. After making us wait about 15 minutes, we spoke to what seemed to be a manager and he wreaked of cigarette smell. I assume that’s why we had to wait so long. On to the Whispering Cafe for breakfast this morning, we arrived about 25 minutes early from our reservation time and asked to be seated early. The restaurant was about 30% full but the man checking us in said he cannot guarantee seating us early. Wow. We ended up getting seated 5 minutes before our reserved time after waiting for 20 minutes in a restaurant that was over half empty. We love the hotel but the customer service here was embarrassing, especially being a Disney Resort. Not the way we envisioned our first experience.

Thank you again for taking the time to share a review of your recent experience at our Resort. I'm very sorry to read about the concerns that you encountered while staying with us. We strive to create a welcoming environment for all of our Guests and I am very sorry that this holiday did not show all we have to offer. Our Cast Members are always expected to maintain our company's reputation for providing outstanding Guest service, so I apologize that you experienced anything less. Additionally, it is completely understandable that after a long journey you would expect to be greeted upon your arrival to ensure that you are fully taken care of from the very beginning of your visit to when it's time to depart. Also, I want to apologize for your disappointments while dining at Whispering Canyon Cafe. Please know that our Food and Beverage Cast Members are working diligently to try to assist our Guests in the best way possible. We are experiencing a new way of operating and things do look different, though I'm sorry this had an impact on your full enjoyment. Thank you again and I will certainly share your feedback with the appropriate Leaders in the area. Betty Disney Social Reviews

This is our favorite resort so we were excited to actually stay here and not just visit. We were suppose to have our Magic Bands waiting for us at the front desk, but that was not the case. However, manager Courtney jumped into action and corrected everything. She was patient and went above and beyond to help the situation. We really appreciated it. We ate at Whispering Canyon and had Monica for our server. She was wonderful and the food was great. Every cast member we encountered was friendly and awesome. We got to see the fireworks the first night they started back. Everyone was cheering and tearing up. All and all it was a wonderful stay and it was sad leaving. We hope to stay here again!!
