    We love the Wilderness Lodge!! We probably won’t ever stay anywhere else! We honeymooned there, took our twins there last year, and are planning on going this December!! It is decorated beautifully for the holidays! Can’t wait to go back!!

    We just did a two week stay at the Wilderness Lodge and fell in love with the resort. We got to be the flag family on the 4th of July which was simply magical. We loved the boat ride over to MK and bus service to the other parks was relatively quick.

    @Cynthia-we were flag family on the trip we just returned from. It was our first stay at WL and we were the flag family, it was such a cool experience and WOW what a view!!!

    We love the Wilderness Lodge.  Can’t wait to see it decorated for the holidays when we go at Thanksgiving!

    What a coincidence! I’m planning a trip to Disney for Thanksgiving too!

    I agree about Whispering Canyon Cafe, it’s one of my places for breakfast at Disney!

    I know what you mean. While I like being close to the Magic Kingdom, I enjoy being closer to Epcot and DHS more, like what you get at the Yacht and Beach Club and the Boardwalk.

    I stayed at Wilderness Lodge many years ago, loved it!  The atmosphere and design is fantastic.  Can’t wait to be able to stay there again and share the experience with my husband and children.

    I have stayed there twice and even though we loved the atmosphere and the boat rides to MK, we didn’t like that we were so far from the parking lot lol.  We use our vehicle A LOT and we were happy we had a split stay last year – when we got to All Star Movies, we were happy to have a room very close to the parking lot 🙂  WL is an awesome hotel with an awesome pool though and we loved sitting on our balcony and listening to the water pageant each night!!!

    We’ve never stayed at Wilderness Lodge but Whispering Canyon Cafe is one of our favorite places to eat.

    I have never stayed at the Wilderness Lodge Hotel technically speaking, I have stayed at the DVC villas there.  We had an amazing time!  We have stayed there twice in the villas.  We love the whole atmosphere there.  We quite enjoy the peaceful side of the villas and the smaller pool there.  While we did partake in a bit of swimming in the big one, we enjoyed taking our kids to the smaller one giving them much more freedom and room to play.  They felt it was “their” pool.  OF COURSE they loved whispering Canyon Cafe, my daughter had the best time galloping around the place on her horse.  Even though we have stayed at other places on the property we always try to get to the whispering Canyon for a early dinner.  As a side note……Buffalo at the Artist Point……Absolutely amazing!

    When we booked our room at WL thru DVC a few years ago, we were a little ambivalent, but the hubs wanted to try it because of the location. We absolutely LOVED it – for all the reasons posted here. We especially loved being able to jump on the boat to & from MK while everyone waited in long Monorail lines. And Whispering Canyon is not to be missed – we’ve never been for lunch or dinner cuz we can’t get past the fabulous breakfast!

    Could a family of 8 fit there easily? I have only heard WONDERFUL things about this resort. It is on my list of places “to one day stay at”

    Thanks for the article, you have made me even more excited about staying there next July.

    Love the resort, stayed there once, and loved Artist’s Point. Only thing I am not a fan of is the proximity to other parks. Prefer to be closer to DHS and EPCOT than I am the MK.

    I love the Wilderness Lodge.  My family love the outdoors and hiking and camping and this is a great resort for our family.  And we all love the water that starts in the lobby and goes out to the pool.

    Love Everything about it.  And if you plan on staying and haven’t done it, request to be the flag family.  Each day the rangers pick a family to help raise the 5 flags on top of the Wilderness Lodge.  What an amazing experiance it was.
