The Wilderness Lodge

Welcome to those of you joining me from The Disney Point and those of you just hopping aboard I am the 5th stop aboard our special edition Magical Blogorail Loop. 

Enjoy the ride as we take you on a tour of Walt Disney World’s Deluxe Resorts.

Today, I am writing about one of my most favorite Resorts on the Walt Disney World Property~ The Wilderness Lodge. This resort is located near the Magic Kingdom and it's theme is The American Northwest National Park lodges. This theme of harmony with nature winds through the lodge—inside and out. It also has Authentic decor and genuine artifacts pay homage to ancient Native American cultures and the pioneering spirit of early American explorers.

The Lobby
 My family and I have stayed here many times and I can remember the first time I entered into the lobby and was in Awe. The incredible 7-story lobby, built from 85 loads of Lodge pole Pine, to its 82-foot-tall lobby fireplace, is breathe taking. As you make your way around this lodge, there are many hidden nooks on each floor. On one of the upper floors, If you go up the staircase by the Whispering Canyon Cafe there is a quiet reading place with a fireplace. Another nook has lots of chairs to hang out and yet another part there are doors heading to an outdoor deck with rocking chairs overlooking the outside landscape. 
The Fireplace
There are also 2 great pools and a white sand beach to refresh in. And In addition to the pool with a water slide, watercraft and bike rentals, a high-tech game room, fishing and a 24-hour playground, children and the whole family can enjoy Chip 'n Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long. Children ages 3-12 can also have fun at the Cub's Den, a supervised activity center that affords parents a carefree night on the town.

Their 2 restaurants are great but, my favorite hands down is the family atmosphere and most fun you will ever have getting a bottle of ketchup the Whispering Canyon Cafe. In this rowdy, family-style restaurant right out of the Old West, you can start your morning with a bang-up breakfast of favorites such as buttermilk pancakes, omelets or an all-you-care-to-enjoy Canyon Skillet.

No that's not our family but when you ask for ketchup you get them all..

  1. I think the lobby is just breathtaking at Wilderness Lodge.  We haven't had the opportunity to stay there, but Artist Point is one of my most favorite dining spots in WDW.  We are hoping to try out Whispering Canyon Cafe one of these days too.  It looks like something that would be perfect for us!

  2. Whispering Canyon is lots of fun.  You have to be a good sport though.  We sat next to family that did NOT appreciate the joking around.  I"m sure they didn't like it there - they were deadbeats!  LOL  You have to know how to laugh and have fun there!

  3.  Thanks Heidi. I know some people have no sense of humor,lol. It 's all fun at the WCC. I love it there it make me laugh so hard..

  4.  Thanks Beth .  It's a great place to just walk around and explore. It's very beautiful Resort inside and out..  You guys have to try WC Cafe you will love it

  5. I have a soft spot for this resort.  It was the first resort I stayed at as an adult and on a solo trip.  Have you noticed that the hallways smell slightly of wood and chocolate?

  6. This is one our favorites too! I can't say enough good things about it!  

  7. Another beautiful and distinctive resort.  My only regret is that by the time we stayed here, my two teen boys were too big for their bunk beds!!  (It made for some terrific photos though... :D)
