Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Nature is calling from this beautiful log lodge capped with green roofs, nestled amongst great pines, rocks, and flowing waters. The rustic touch of the early American West simultaneously evokes a sense of relaxation, adventure and exploration.

The main lobby is breathtaking. Clusters of logs rise up to the high ceiling where more beams delicately lace together and soft lamps stretched with hide reach down. Thick Navajo patterned rugs stretch out over wood floors and soft, cushy chairs and sofas are cuddled around heavy coffee tables. In one corner of the main lobby sits a great stone fireplace with a crackling fire, and rocking chairs beckon guests to sit and watch the glow.

Guests rooms highlight raw wood furnishings and earthy tones. Browns and pool deep blues can be found in the fabrics and decor. The bed headboards have ornate carvings of forest scenes. Most rooms at this resort can accommodate up to 4 guests and some rooms offer Bunk Beds as an option in addition to a Queen bed. Deluxe rooms on the Club Level can accommodate up to 6 guests.

There are plenty of opportunities to tantalize the palette at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge with two full service table restaurants, a quick service food court, a lounge, and a poolside bar.  Just off the main lobby, the Whispering Canyon Cafe offers lip-smacking good barb-a-que in a fun family friendly atmosphere where jokes are at the ready. Diners in search of fine dining can try Artist Point where a Pacific Northwest menu is served in a rich dining room with murals and panoramic views of waterfront landscape. An award wining wine list also from the Pacific Northwest gives diners over 21 years of age abundant pairings to the seafood and turf focused menu.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be found in quick service style at the Roaring Fork. Pop in for a meal or simply to grab a cookie for a sweet treat in the afternoon! If you wish to sample a specialty cocktail or enjoy an adult beverage, visit the rustic and cozy Territory Lounge. Appetizers are available in addition to northwestern wines, beers and specialty cocktails. Feel like staying in? Room service is just a quick phone call away for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Swimming in the Silver Creek Springs Pool is a refreshing mountain escape. A stream trickles nearby and melts into the pool. A 67 foot long water slide will delight children and adults who are kids at heart. Young children have a kiddie pool that is suited just for them.
Nearby is the Trout Pass Pool Bar where cocktails, beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks are offered.
