Disney's Wilderness Lodge details
Fringing a lake and beach, this old-time lodge feels like a world away from Orlando’s hustle and bustle.
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge puts nature at your fingertips. It’s a pinewood lodge built in the style of the old-time mountain retreats of America’s national parks. And, fittingly, it’s surrounded by pine trees and wildflowers, with pathways leading to a lake and white-sand beach. The best part is, you can easily jump on buses and boats to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks from here.
Inside, the lobby is filled with Native American artefacts such as a giant totem pole. The bedrooms, meanwhile, come with traditional fittings like wooden bedsteads and patterned fabrics. You get all the necessary mod-cons, as well, like flatscreen TVs, marble bathrooms and coffee-makers. And you get a balcony or patio overlooking the gardens or lake. Plus, there’s the option of Honeymoon Suites if you’re after luxurious touches like whirlpool baths.
There’s plenty to tempt you outdoors, as well. You’ve got a large pool framed by waterfalls and a slide that snakes through novelty rocks. The terrace also gives grandstand views over the Lodge’s geyser, which sends a huge plume of water into the air every hour. And, in keeping with the outdoor theme, you’ve got boat rides, fishing trips and bikes for hire so you can explore the surrounding wilderness.
As for mealtimes, there are four restaurants, with everything from barbecue dishes to Pacific Northwest specialities like cedar-roasted salmon on the menu. For something more laid-back, head for the Territory Lounge. This cosy eatery serves up sesame chicken wings and other classic American snacks.
