Themed as a resort from the national parks of the Northwest (think Yellowstone National Park), Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is both cozy and breathtaking. Immediately upon entering, you will be struck by the grandeur of the lobby, including a working fireplace, totems and tee-pee chandeliers. The fireplace is a replica of the rock strata of the Grand Canyon.
A bubbling spring in the lobby actually goes under the wall, and travels outside. From there you can follow it over a waterfall, and into the feature pool. Beyond the pool, the water travels under a bridge, past the working geyser and into Bay Lake.
The Wilderness Lodge, like all Disney resorts, is smoke-free. Designated outdoor smoking areas are indicated on the Resort Map.
Check our Rehabs and Closures schedule for any refurbishments or work taking place at the Wilderness Lodge Resort during your visit.
