Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort Hotel Review

Wilderness Lodge Hotel

The Wilderness Lodge Hotel is a Deluxe Hotel at Walt Disney World!


Location: Magic Kingdom area


Escape to the rustic majesty of America’s Great Northwest. Inspired by turn-of-the-century National Park lodges, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Hotel celebrates American craftsmanship and honors the beauty of the untamed wilderness. Soak in the splendor of the great outdoors, from nature trails through pine forests to rocking chairs that overlook a murmuring creek. Inside, discover towering totem poles, headdresses and more, and enjoy the rustic elegance of the stone hearth and roaring fireplace.

Our Take

We really like the Wilderness Lodge Hotel! While it isn’t ideal location-wise to the rest of the parks it is fairly close to the Magic Kingdom theme park. You will need to bus basically everywhere else including Hollywood Studios, EPCOT and Animal Kingdom.

The grounds are incredible and the craftsmanship of the lodge and rooms are a site to see. Anyone lucky enough to visit during the holiday season is in for a real treat. Holidays decorations at the hotel include a massive tree, wreaths and garlands along with hundreds of other decorations filling the hotel. It’s magical!

Wilderness Lodge Hotel

There are two pools including Copper Creek Springs and Boulder Ridge Cove Pool.

Copper Creek Pool is our favorite because the the 67 foot water slide built into the rocks! The pool also features a poolside bar and dining area serving up some delicious drinks and food!


  • Luxury hotel throughout.
  • Seclusion in the woods.
  • Great for Magic Kingdom lovers or outdoorsy people.
  • Lots of outdoor activities available.


  • Not close to any of the other parks.
  • Requires a lot of busing.

Discounts and Savings

We recommend Undercover Tourist for the best price on this hotel.
