Wilderness Lodge Resort Overview

Voted the best resort on Disney Property AND the best themed resort by our visitors, is Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  This resort was inspired by Early American National Parks Service lodges.  The lakeside lodge is an 8 story, log-structured building.  The centerpiece of the Wilderness Lodge is the main lobby.  A massive 82 foot tall, three-sided stone fireplace is surrounded by rustic-looking, wooden rocking chairs.  Four large tepee chandeliers hang overhead and two 55 foot high totem poles  stand guard at the entrance.  The multi-colored flooring was inspired by Northwest Indian designs.  A bubbling hot spring originates in the lobby and appears to continue on outside where it is transformed into a roaring waterfall that "pours" into the swimming area.  Follow the path behind the pool area to a 120 foot geyser that erupts hourly from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.   Other perks of a visit to the Wilderness Lodge include:  boat service to the Magic Kingdom, special guided tours of the resort, (one that concentrates on the architecture and landscaping, and the other is a "Tastes of the Lodge" tour that allows you to sample some of the culinary delights found in the lodge restaurants), the Discovery Island Animal show, the Ladybug Release, the opportunity to be the "Flag Family" (who participates in the 7 a.m. American flag raising ceremony, complete with photograph and certificate commemorating the event) and of course the front row seating on the boat dock for the "Electrical Water Pageant" that crosses Bay Lake nightly.

INSIDER INFO:  The grand fireplace in the lobby is a recreation of the strata of the Grand Canyon.  Over 100 colors in hues of green, magenta, buff, red, black and brown are visible, as are fossilized remains of prehistoric plant and animal life.  From the Vishnu Schist to Bass Limestone to Tapeats Sandstone to the Redwall and Temple Butte Limestone and finally ending with Kaibab Limestone and Toroweap Formation, the fireplace represents 2 billion years of the time it took for the layers of rock to form.
