Enjoy a more rustic adventure when staying at one of the best themed resorts in the Disney World Property, the Disney Wilderness Lodge. This magnificent resort is designed to make you feel like you have stepped into a time period where all of the majestic National Parks in the Northwest of our great country were being showcased. The enormous main Lodge is styled after the older wooden structures that you will find around the beauty and tranquility of Northwestern Nature. This resort, by many, is known to be one of the best designed resorts that Disney created in the Orlando Florida area.
Rooms at the Wilderness Lodge
The rooms at the Disney Wilderness Lodge are nice and well appointed. Most of them are more like a standard hotel room with the option of 1 King bed or 2 Queen Beds. There are also a number of different views that you can experience depending on the room that you get. Some of the rooms overlook the parking lot but you can pay a little more and get a view of the Pool, Forest or the Lake. The rooms off of the back of the resort have small balconies allowing you to sit out and enjoy the views while sipping on your coffee in the morning. If you want a little nicer experience, you can step up to one of the suites that will allow you to stretch out and enjoy a little more space. For full information on the rooms and things to do while you are at the Wilderness Resort Disney Orlando take a look at our Disney Wilderness Resort Amenities.

As you enter the main lobby through the large doorways, you look up and detect the vast open area with a full height of 6 stories. The giant wooden beams that support the structure as well as the few large totems make you feel like you have stepped into a different location that you do not really see around this area. Disney has really done a great job of setting the stage to make you have a sense of being in a place like Yellowstone Park.
Pools and Water Features
As you walk through the lobby, one feature really stands out above the rest. There is a wooden walking bridge that spans over a small flowing creek. When you look to see where the water is coming from, you quickly notice the large open spring that continually bubbles up water and flows through the lodge and down to the Swimming Pool. This unique spring continues to feed water throughout the day to the Water Play area that the entire family can enjoy. The kids will get excited as they look down to see this Large Swimming Pool with a Water Slide that is built into a rock formation. You better get checked in quick and check out your room because I am sure that the Kids will be wanting to play in the pool as soon as they can get there. Right beside the main pool, you will see that there is a shallow Kiddie Pool for the youngest ones to splash and play without concern of them getting in too deep. For the adults, there are also 2 large Hot Tubs just above this main Pool area where you can sit and relax while the children are playing. If you are looking for some quiet time to read a book but still want to hang out near the water, there is also a smaller Quiet Pool on the Property or a large White Sandy Beach by Bay Lake.
Head out west without having to travel all of the miles by visiting the Deluxe Disney Resort the Wilderness Lodge.
When you enter the Disney Wilderness Lodge you might decide that you actually want to put down roots for a little while. I know that your Kids will not want you to sit around for long, so this is where some planning comes into play. Just the lobby of the main building is worth exploring. There is plenty of comfortable seating or you can sit by the large Fireplace in wooden rocking chairs. If you head up the stairs or elevator to the upper floors, you will find additional seating areas where you can people watch from above. You will have to negotiate this into the time that you are staying at this prime Disney World Resort because there is plenty to see and you don’t want to miss anything while you are there.
