Overview

Past guests appreciated the resort's complimentary transportation to Walt Disney World theme parks
This property does not have a kids club, a golf course or a business center
Located near Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, Disney's Wilderness Lodge has an ambiance that's reminiscent of North America's national parks. The lobby is built with pine and stone, and just outside the front door are acres of trees, plus a man-made geyser. Recent travelers marveled at the lobby's towering fireplace and loved the Wilderness Lodge's secluded feel. What's more, they lauded the complimentary bus and water taxi services to Disney theme parks. The Wilderness Lodge's rustic rooms are popular with families, and the Pacific Northwest-inspired Artist Point restaurant's character dining makes the eatery one of the park's more popular dinner options. And while staying at this Disney-affiliated property, travelers have access to a variety of outdoor facilities, including two pools and jogging trails.

READ MORE 

Set on the edge of a forest of cypress and slash pine on Bay Lake, this rustic lodge is fashioned after an inn at Yellowstone National Park. Rooms have an outdoor log cabin theme with an upscale edge. Stand outs include an expansive pool area and a well-equipped fitness center with lockers and a sauna. A replica of Old Faithful erupts on the hour.

The architects designed this luxury resort to resemble turn-of-the-20th-century lodges in the American Northwest. The green tiled and gabled roofs float over the forest, supported by seven stories of dark brown timber. Its cavernous lobby features towering tree trunks, an 82-foot-high fireplace made of stone from the Grand Canyon, and two 55-foot-tall hand-carved totem poles that pay homage to the region's Native American culture.
