We loved the Wilderness Lodge! It had the out-of-this-world setting we were looking for, and we were pleasantly surprised by the room we were given. Without a call-ahead, we were given a room on the sixth floor with a pool view off of the balcony, and as far away from the lobby as you could ask for. I was a little worried that I had not called ahead, because of some previous reviews (i.e. Whispering Canyon Cafe's noise levels) but it was not a problem, because the restaurant was muted at best...we only heard it as we passed through the lobby. I guess if you are in a room adjacent to the lobby it could be an issue. The room was also large and clean, and the mini-fridge was delivered promptly with a quick call to housekeeping. Now only one complaint...housekeeping. We left a nice tip on our first and second days in hopes of receiving the famed "little creatures made out of handtowels" and got nada. Very disappointed about that, but otherwise, housekeeping was very conscientious of our "do not disturb" sign when it was up, amd even left a message telling us to call for a special cleaning if needed when we were ready. Nice.
Another favorite part of the Wilderness Lodge was the boat ride over to the Magic Kingdom or the Contemporary (depends on where you are going). It was very relaxing and a great touch. The kids loved it too.
I definitely would stay at the Wilderness Lodge again. It was not crowded (though we DID stay in the off season 10/1-10/6) and we had a great time!
