We had a great time. Location and boat to disney was fantastic. Beautiful property. The restaurants were great. The mattresses on the beds were not the most comfortable. It's a pity that there is not a health spa on site and the pool lounge chairs should be fancier. Overall a great trip and nice to stay "in the woods" so close to WDW.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Disney hotel."
Great retro Yellowstone park type feel. Very well run. Great kids pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lifeguard staff needs to lighten up!"
Telling me I can't have a drink at pool side was a joke. We vacation everywhere and everyone knows keep your responsible, adult, guests happy and drinking!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, well kept hotel"
Beautiful hotel, close to Magic Kingdom. Friendly staff. Loved the fact that we could take the boat to Magic Kingdom. Liked that there were shuttles to every location in Disney.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel but plan for food!!!"
great hotel. heated pool with a small waterside the young ones enjoyed. Geiser outside, beach, boats, bikes etc.... just thought the food at the walk in order at the counter restaurant was yucky. that was disappointing because we did not have reservations at the hotel restaurants so we were SOL when it came to a good meal. make dinner reservations and […] you'll be golden.

"Rocky start, wonderful overall"
When we were first checked into our room, it was obvious that the maid service had gone through our room quickly. After calling and complaining, they more than and made up for it. Our stay was wonderful, and they made every effort to accommodate usGenuine Hotels.com guest review
we were very satisfiedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice. Convenient to the Magic Kingdom. Everyone enjoyed it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location inside Disney Park"
The hotel was very nice and the DisneyWorld Park was great! The transportation options are great and easily accessible - no need to drive if staying in the Park. When they suggest that you make reservations for each of your meals, they were not kidding. If you don't reserve your eating times in advance you may have to wait 2 to 3 hours before you get […] an available sitting. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel had everything we needed - a short trip to Disney World via boat, a pool with a slide that was a big hit with my 10-year old, a game room, etc. We had a great experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Concise Service that met all of our needs."
We arrived early and a room was ready, a pleasant surprise. Had a late night snack and breakfast the next day, both of which were very good. No wait time at all. Our check out was extremely effortless. thank you at the Wilderness LodgeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay with children"
We will go there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Amazing location and service! Resort is beautiful and well maintained. Recommend it to anyone traveling as a family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel is very beautiful. The transportation to go to the parks is perfect. The staff work very happy. The experience of Wilderness Lodge Resort is something you have tu live.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great pool & beautiful grounds."
Great pool, convenient to the Magic Kingdom (short ferry ride), and very warm and kid friendly. We stayed in a "woods view" room which is towards the back of the hotel. It was extremely quiet which was great and we could actually see some of the fireworks at night. It was slightly obstructed but still nice. I would definitely stay here again. The rooms […] are just basic, nothing special. You're paying for the convenience and the hotel grounds, etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed taking a boat to the Magic Kingdom. Extra magic hours are a plus with Disney Resorts. The rooms are comfortable with extra Disney design touches. It had a lodge feeling like Montana yet you were minutes away from Disneyworld!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect hotel for cub scouts!"
This is a great hotel to bring my little boys. They loved the decor and traveling around to find hidden goodies like the fossils! They can't wait to go back and find more fossils up the fireplace. Thank you for your creativity. My boys really enjoyed the geyser as well. Everything was amazing. My son is a bear in cub scouts and the boys just loved walking […] around looking at all the bears and other things close to scouts. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place to Stay"
When we checked in their was some mix-up with our room request, but the staff quickly made the necessary changes. The resort is beautiful, the service was great, and the transportation to the parks was a great convenience. We had a wonderful stay and would go back again without reservation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you want to experience Disney Magic this is the hotel to stay. We loved it. The best part was that we used the boat ride to the Magic Kingdom several times and it was flawless. We did not wait more than 5 minutes. We had a very bad experience, wait time, with the buses and we decided to drive when going to other parks other than the MK. The boat […] only goes to the MK. Parking was included to all parks since we stayed at this hotel and the drives were about 10 minutes. I recommend it. Thank you! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great location for magic kingdom"
awesome stay...room was clean, front desk very helpful, quick 10 min boat ride to the magic kingdom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent staffs but too old and out-of fashion"
bad flavors in the whole hotels including aisle and roomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Third time at wilderness lodge"
Overall, this hotel is a magical place to stay inside of disney. The boat transportation is fun and convenient, and hotel is close to magic kingdom. Lobby and grounds are spectacular. Theming is authentic and impressive. Housekeeping isn't as in tune as they were in the past. Same for Whispering Canyon - wait staff not as entertaining as in the past. […] Would definitely recommend - I think it is one of the best choices. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful resort in prime location."
We had a wonderful trip and were surprised by the great view from our room. The cast was great and consistently exceeding expectations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel and room, Exceptional Staff"
The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was exceptional. We were there at a very busy time of year and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us every way they could. This was our second visit and we will definitely stay at the Wilderness Lodge again! Great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Rather disappointing stay"
We wanted to like the place, however, the room was way too small and the bathroom was also small, for a hotel with a huge price tag per night. The towels are too old. The food is way too expensive. The staff was great, which is the only thing we liked it there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Over Disney experience - very good"
If you look at the room in isolation it is probably a overpriced money trap. But if you consider the convo emcee to the parks, the decor of the lobby area and the kindness of the staff you can overlook most of its minor blemishes.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great spot for families and adventure."
We did not want to leave but it was more expensive. Best if you are actually going to enjoy the property and not just go to the parks the whole day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for families going to Magic Kingdom"
Beautiful hotel, nice helpful staff. Kind of pricey but it is Disney... Christmas decorations were perfect. I would stay here again..Genuine Expedia guest review
"A worthy destination even if it were not so close"
We chose the Winderness Lodge because it is so close to Disney World, a short boat ride which was an adventure itself. For my grandson's first visit to Disney it was a wonderful experience, the hotel more than Disney itself. We spent one day at the Park and the next relaxing by the pool. The staff was very supportive of our stay after check-out and […] we enjoyed a pool party in the afternoon. My daughter and I loved the northwest decor, particularly appealing at Christmas time. The Lodge is expensive but not as pricey as the Polynesian, where we have stayed before, and the Contemporary Resort, both on the monorail. But for a city kid, the boat ride was more exciting.

"Great Deluxe Resort"
Very pleased with the whole resort. A little remote and on the quiet side which was refreshing considering how close it is to the Contemporary. Great staff and very well maintained as well. If we go again and stay in a deluxe resort it will be this one again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous place for our 40th anniversary trip!"
Wilderness Lodge is now my favorite place to stay at Walt Disney World - lovely, understated or "casual" elegance, great to simply ride a boat to Magic Kingdom or Ft. Wilderness (walking around to see the amazing Christmas decorations on people's individual RV's and campers was great fun), and a bus to the other parks. The Artiste Pointe restaurant […] was exceptional - the best of the best of the wonderful restaurants in and around Disney - delicious food with marvelous tastes, beautifully presented. Waterfront is great too - we spent a relaxing afternoon on the lake shore on the white sand beach. Very nice rooms and amenities. The hotel even gave us an upgrade (and our hotels.com rate was lower than the hotel advertised). We also liked the fact that we could have canceled up to 5 days prior to arrival (so glad we didn't have to!) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Left without staying one night."
We were sent to probably the worst room the hotel could offer us. It was located on the first floor with absolutely no view. The only way to get to the room was a city block walk to a nearly hidden elevator as far away from the lobby as possible. The room was obviously a handicap room with a roll-in shower. We are not handicap. We ended up demanding […] that they move us to a more suitable room which they could only achieve by moving us to the Disneyland Contemporary Resort Hotel which they did. It was not as if we booked the hotel at the last minute, we booked it in August for a December stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A VERY NICE PLACE TO STAY"
We were looking into places to stay for a trip to WDW (Walt Disney World) with friends. Having booked with Expedia int he past, we compared prices….Expedia really brought the price down to a very comfortable price, WDW is Very Expensive. Wilderness Lodge did not let us down. It is highly recommended by most who visit there. we did not find a thing to […] complain about. We definitely got what we paid for…. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"RUSTIC LODGE ATMOSPHERE"
From the moment we arrived, we were impressed by the hotel staff and the lodge. The rooms were very comfortable and the kids had a blast in both the kiddie pool and main pool with the slide. Janice from the concierge service was excellent in helping us out with fast passes using our new wrist bands, which also open your door and allow you to easily […] charge food or shopping to your assigned credit card. The holiday decorations were beautiful and I loved the photos by the tree. We also enjoyed a movie on the beach and toasted marshmallows at the bonfire. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Glad we booked through expedia for a discounted price . . . probably wouldn't pay rack rate to Disney.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My Christmas present to my self"
The staff at Disney's Wilderness Lodge were knowledgeable, courteous and very friendly. The moment you walk through the doors the staff says "welcome home" and you actually feel like they mean it! I would without a doubt stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Loves the boat ride to Magic Kingdom!"
We loved the hotel and close to other hotels, monorail and the ferry!Genuine Expedia guest review
Disney's Wilderness Lodge is a beautiful resort with hotel rooms that remind me more of a Marriott or Hyatt than a Disney Resort. However, the main areas are very Disneyesque and the pool is quite nice. It is close to Magic Kingdom. Transportation to MK is by boat while all other places are by bus. Boat transportation is far more pleasant and usually […] quicker than than the busses, so that is a huge plus for this resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was a splurge for my BF's 60th birthday. I was having buyer's remorse about spending this much money....but SOOO glad I did. We got a surprise upgrade upon check-in. We were put in a club level room. With concierge service and food and drinks put out 4 times a day. We loved it! We felt so pampered. This sounds corny, but we had a magical […] time!!!

"Great Disney Hotel"
My son, husband and myself stayed at the Wilderness Lodge on 10/16-10/20. The hotel was perfect for our needs. The hotel was beautiful, quiet and clean. The staff very accommodating. There are three places to eat onsite, but we were in the parks all day, we mainly grabbed breakfast and a quick bite at night at the Roaring Fork. Ate once at the Whispering […] Canyon, wasn't a fan of the food or atmosphere. The ketchup thing is fun once, and the waiters threw menus, napkins, and straws on the table. I know that it is suppose to be an act, but it comes off as being rude and indifferent. Boat transportation to the Magic Kingdom was convenient and fast. We went to Universal Studios one day and the concierge helped booked Mears shuttle service to the park. We were picked up right outside the hotel. We had a courtyard view, one night we were able to see the fireworks from the park. I was worried that the room would be loud because we were facing the courtyard, but our room was nice and quiet. The grounds are beautiful and the geyser goes off every hour. My son loved the pool slide. We would definitely return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, very noisy."
Room very noisy and air conditioning did not work well. Not sure if we were next to a main water pipe, but the sound of water flowing never ended. The boat taking people to other parts of Disney started about 6:30am and the horn blowing that early was not pleasant. Very convenient bus servise to these parks and other points of interest.Genuine Expedia guest review
The whole trip was great the staff was plesant aned very helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel BUT"
This has the potential to be a really excellent hotel and the staff are really friendly, but there we soo many new trainees every where that misinformation abounded, we were on a tight schedule and this was not appreciated , if you are not sure about something don't make stuff up.....I reserved a room needing a bunk bed or a daybed they were sold out […] and only had an aero mattress, this was ok but it leaked and the 2 queen size beds were hard and sagged in the middle....We decided to have breakfast in the Canyon Café on the last day before leaving and the food quality is very good BUT, when you select the "family style option" the wait between seconds was way too long again because there were too many new people.....

"Secluded, perhaps too much, but still great."
It's a great place for families, due to the overall theme, atmosphere and general size of the place. It's just as good for a group of friends as well, but as is the case with most Disney properties, it will get overrun by children with lackadaisical parents who condone the behavior, causing somewhat of a nuisance from time to time, but that's no fault […] of the property itself. Pool area is spacious, beautiful and nice, restaurants inside the resort are good quality. Staff was helpful and accessible. The walls of the hotel are somewhat thin on all accounts, and neighbors with screaming kids can be heard a little too easy. Resort has shuttles to all Disney properties and a direct boat to Magic Kingdom that all come in very handy. But due to the secluded nature of the resort, it's kind of time consuming, but still better than driving yourself and paying for parking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Lobby but Room are Lackluster"
The fact that every Disney hotel I've ever stayed in continues it's theme of great lobby and landscaping, but disappointing rooms. I'm not sure why Disney can feel that they can charge the same about as a high-end luxury hotel, but without delivering the luxury. With the amount of the room that I paid, I was expecting a high-end room, however, what […] I got was a typical Hampton Inn experience at best. There is nothing fancy about this hotel--only a pretty cool looking lobby that spans 7-stories high with some decent wood themed accents. Other than that, it ends there. The food was lacking. The pool seemed okay, however, a little small for this size of hotel. It was situated on the lake, so that worked well for taking the boat to the parks. However, the bus service is in need of a serious overhaul. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
