What You Might Not Know About Disney’s Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World Resort

I’m a big fan of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. You walk through the resort’s doorway in Florida and, suddenly, you’ve been transported to America’s Great Northwest. The seven-story lobby is built with eighty-five truckloads of Lodgepole Pine, brought from Oregon and Montana. The layered look of the main 82-foot fireplace duplicates the layered rock strata of the Grand Canyon. The resort’s 727 guest rooms reflect themes of wildlife, nature and Native American designs.

Disney's Wilderness Lodge

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has something for everyone — fans of American history, lovers of the great outdoors, and folks who just want to relax by the two pools and the white-sand beach. For fans of classic Disney animation, guest rooms just went through a refresh – including the addition of shower tiles featuring Meeko from “Pocahontas,” “Bambi,” and Chip ‘n Dale. Here’s a video tour around the resort.

    For at least one week for the past 10 years I have stayed at one of the Villa properties at Disney. Typically we stay at the Boardwalk or Beach Club Villas. Last year we stayed at the Contemporary (which wasnt our favorite stay) and stumbled onto Wilderness Lodge. Needless to say we were blown away by the property and most importantly the pool.

    This year we are staying at the Beach Club but I was curious if you knew a way to hop on a bus and use the pool over at WL. Do these properties have reciprocal swimming agreements if you are staying at a higher end property?

    BTW I to am a travel agency owner as well. My company is based in the Philadephia suburbs. We are primarily a corporate TMC and have offices of our own and in house travel teams nation wide.

    Thanks for your help,
