How to Get There
We had the pleasure of staying at the Wilderness Lodge for 3 nights. I had booked a basic room with two double beds. Our room was above the parking bay for all the truck deliveries but that did not bother me and I’m a light sleeper. The best part about these rooms is that they face Magic Kingdom and you can see the castle from your balcony. Such a pretty sight especially at night with it all lit up for Xmas.
All staff we encountered were very helpful and especially a manager who went above and beyond to ensure we got chargers compatible for our mobile phones. There was also a mixup with our luggage when we arrived but they chased it up while we went and enjoyed the fireworks at magic kingdom, and arriving back in our room our luggage was there.
I loved the option of catching a boat or bus to magic kingdom. Gave the whole stay a new experience. What I loved the most was that my stay felt like I was in Yellowstone national park and no where near all the crazy busy Disney parks. It has such a peaceful aura to the hotel and I loved every minute. Missed the xmas decorations by one day and heard they are sensational.
This resort has great pools, and grounds. The restaurants are all good, even the fast walk up ones. The lobby is decorated with wonderful Christmas decorations. The even have a fire outside for kids to roast marshmallows.
I had previously booked the Yacht Club resort but at the last minute I change my resort to the Wilderness Lodge. I was so glad I did, as the Wilderness Lodge was nothing but gorgeous as soon as you enter into the lobby. I went during the Christmas season and the hotel was packed but still quiet and decorated so beautifully for the holidays. I booked a nature view and with requests for a quiet area and a higher level room. The room I got was magical. I got to see the fireworks every night from my hotel balcony and didn't have to pay for a theme park view and I could see the castle from my room!! I had an end room so it was very quiet. The Wilderness lodge beds were definitely comfy and even though they say that the Wilderness lodge rooms are one of the smallest in all the deluxe resorts, it didn't feel like it. The only complaint I had was my room had a bit of an unpleasant odor. Though, I didn't complain since my view was terrific and the odor wasn't unbearable. Definitely recommend this resort and will be staying here again.
This is my favorite resort! Love the decor, room was clean and great view of lake. Restaurants on property were very good. Kids loved the pool. The boat taxi to parks is so convenient. Can't wait to go back.
This resort is amazing and smells incredible. At Christmas time, you're transported. The convenience to Magic Kingdom and the other MK-area resorts is great. You feel almost like you've left Disney World, and went away to a mountain lodge to relax. We absolutely love it here.
