Hotel Description: Disney's Deluxe Resorts
Disney's Wilderness Lodge where the majesty and grandeur of the Northwest American spirit echo throughout a relaxing mountain retreat. Hidden away on the shores of Bay Lake, this deluxe resort features a volcanic meadow with bubbling color pools, babbling brooks and geysers which spew misty streams up to 100 feet into the air. All this plus beautiful swimming pools and white sand beaches.
Emerging from a secluded, wooded area, the traveler comes upon the strikingly beautiful, rustic mountain retreat which is Disney's Wilderness Lodge. The design of this 728-room lakeside log-structured building was inspired by the splendor of the American National Park Service Lodges of the early 1900s. The majestic, rough hewn interiors are Northwest-themed. At the center of the lobby is a massive, three-sided stone fireplace. Multicolored wood flooring, reminiscent of Northwest Indian designs, and giant totem poles which add to a decor that is rich in cultural nuances. The restaurants in Disney's Wilderness Lodge are attractions in themselves.
Disney's Wilderness Lodge offers a complete array of dining and recreational options. Two jacuzzis, main pool with a waterslide, healthclub, watercraft rentals, babysitting service or supervised childrens activities (Cubs Den), access to five championship golf courses and all the Magic of Disney.

Recreation and amenities include bike and boat rentals, swimming, playground, laundry, game room and on-site child care.

Three Top Reasons to Stay On-Site at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel:
Disney’s Magical Express – When guests bound for Disney owned-and-operated hotels are traveling via commercial airline to Orlando International Airport (MCO), they can arrange for special luggage tags that allow them to check their bags at their hometown airport, bypass baggage claim at OIA and board state-of-the-art motor coaches for complimentary transportation to the Vacation Kingdom, where their bags “magically” appear in their guestroom. When it’s time to say good-bye, guests board motor coaches for complimentary transportation back to Orlando International Airport - (MCO). An extra convenience: Guests traveling on participating airlines can check their baggage for the return flight at their Disney resort, saving time and luggage-toting at the airport.
Walt Disney World Transportation System – A Walt Disney World resort ID is the ticket for buses, monorails and boat launches that combine to connect virtually all areas of the Vacation Kingdom. With the convenience of “door-to-door” service throughout the resort, many guests enjoy their Walt Disney World vacation without a car.
Extra Magic Hours at Walt Disney World Theme Parks – Each day, Disney hotel guests are offered exclusive time in a Walt Disney World theme park one hour prior to scheduled park opening or for up to three hours after park closing. The park varies from day to day. In addition, Disney water parks sometimes open one hour early for guests of Disney hotels. To take advantage of the additional time in the parks, guests must have their hotel ID plus a Magic Your Way ticket valid for the park(s) offering Extra Magic Hours. (NOTE: Extra Magic Hours of up to two hours after park close take effect in January-February 2014).

Other Notable Attributes, BENEFITS And PERKS Of Vacationing At A Walt Disney World Resort Hotel:
Location, location, location - With their on-property location convenient to the theme parks, the Disney hotels are a haven for guests who seek a midday swimming break - or a siesta. For some guests, the convenience is even more specific… ?
- Many families with young children select accommodations in one of the “monorail resorts” – Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Resort or Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Reason: location near Magic Kingdom and convenient monorail transportation between the resorts and Magic Kingdom or Epcot. ?
- Many adult couples visiting without children enjoy the proximity to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk – as well as the nightlife of Disney’s BoardWalk. Walkways and water taxis connect the three resorts with the theme parks.
Theming - It’s not just a room. In the same way that Disney’s theme parks offer an escape to a timeless land of enchantment, a walk down small-town Main Street or a peek at the future, Disney hotels offer a mix of adventures. Disney Imagineers have created detailed, themed environments that include the romance and beauty of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge to Victorian opulence at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Youth policy – Guests 17 and under stay at no additional charge in parents’ rooms (up to the designated capacity of the room) at Disney resort hotels.

Lobby concierge - One call can do it all. Each Disney resort hotel offers a lobby concierge to arrange park tickets, dining reservations and tee times, and to provide helpful hints on setting up other activities.
Key to the World card – It’s a hotel room key and much more. Magic Your Way theme park tickets and Disney Dining Plan entitlements can be built into the card.
