Disney's Wilderness Lodge details
Set by a beach, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge feels like a world away from Orlando buzz. Nature takes centre stage here as the pinewood lodge, which is designed like an old-time mountain retreat once found in the national parks of America takes you on a modern trip back in time. The lodge is surrounded by pine trees and flowers, with paths to a magnificent lake and sandy beach. But you will not be cut off here; there are easily accessible buses and boats to the Walt Disney World parks as well.
The accommodation interior reflects the ancient history of America with artefacts such as totem poles in place. The bedrooms are traditional with wooden bed frames and beautiful old fashioned linen. But this place is also packed with all the modern amenities you would expect such as flatscreen TVs, marble bathrooms and the all important coffee-makers. There are either balconies or patios overlooking the gardens or lake.
Outside, there’s a large pool surrounded by waterfalls and a slide set in novelty rocks. The terrace has views over the Lodge’s geyser, which sends a huge plume of water into the air every hour and you’ve got boat rides, fishing trips and bikes for hire so you can explore the surrounding wilderness. A real taste of the wild America with the security of modern pleasures.
