Driving up to the entrance at the Disney Wilderness Lodge 960

Just because it is called the Wilderness Lodge Resort, it sounds as if you will be staying in a more rustic setting but don’t expect it to be too rustic. This is a true Disney Deluxe resort and you will have all of the luxuries and upscale amenities that all of the other resorts of this type offer. Many guests feel that this is one of the best resorts to stay at. If you want to upgrade your stay to have some additional space, you can stay at one of the Wilderness Lodge Villas where you can have multiple bedrooms and even a fully equipped kitchen. All of these are Hotels near Magic Kingdom but the Wilderness does not have access using the Monorail.

Does older mean Out of Date?

Absolutely not. This is Disney we are talking about. Have you ever been to anything created by this Magical Mouse that was ever run down? I sure haven’t. The goal is to keep everyone happy during there visit and all of the properties are continuously being refurbished and updated to make sure that everyone has a fantastic time during there trip.

Roughing it Disney Style

If camping is more your style, you have the option of staying at the Fort Wilderness Campground. Bring a tent, drive your RV, or pull along a trailer, this full-service campground can take care of whatever you are looking for. Maybe you don’t want to rough it quite that much but if this type of vacation sounds appealing, the Cabins at Fort Wilderness might be a better fit. A couple of things to know if you decide to stay at the campground. After you park your vehicle, you are not allowed to drive around the property unless you are coming or leaving. Renting a Golf cart is a great alternative and is fun for the entire family. Kids find that this is almost as exciting as going to the parks. For information on the campground or any of these properties, just follow the links and keep on reading through the details. The campground is on the far side of the Wilderness property and is not a Hotel near Magic Kingdom but it is close by when you take the Disney Water Taxi to get there.

Disney Transportation

Everyone loves taking the Disney Hotels on the Monorail because it is such an iconic feature of the Disney World Resort. All of these Hotels near Magic Kingdom allow you to hop aboard except for the Fort Wilderness Campground and Wilderness Lodge Resort guests. Water taxies are also a great mode of transportation. There are docks at all of these properties to accommodate each guest across the water. Lastly, you also have the option to catch the Bus system that can transport you to the Magic Kingdom. Buses can also get you to any of the other Disney World Attractions.
