Disney's Wilderness Lodge

One of my favorite resorts on Disney Property is Wilderness Lodge. This resort reminds me of the wonderful majestic lodges that are located in the North Western United States. This resort is tucked away in large pine trees that surround the property, walking trails that over look Bay Lake and a wonderful babbling brook.

Wilderness Lodge is a deluxe resort, with it's grand lobby, that offer's great places to sit back in a rocking chair, in front of the fireplace and just enjoy the sounds of nature.

Wilderness Lodge offers world class dining at Artist Point and Storybook Dining with Snow White and her pals. Whispering Canyon is a fun interactive dining experience, and there's a yummy quick service, Roaring Fork for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Wilderness Lodge offers room for 2 adults or they can accommodate up to a group of 12. The rooms are Standard View, Courtyard View, Nature View, and Pool View, and at the magnificent Boulder Ridge and Copper Creek Villa's for families of 4 to 12.

Pictured below are pictures from the 2 bedroom Villa at Copper Creek. This room was incredible and the bathtub with an air jetted whirlpool that help you relax after a fun day in the parks. .

Wilderness Lodge is just a boat ride away from Magic Kingdom and bus service to Epcot, Disney Hollywood Studio, Animal Kingdom and other parks on property.

I took these pictures of myself getting on the Disney's Skyliners!!! The Skyliner is a ride in itself and it is incredibly smooth with the best views of all around Disney property. It's A Must Do!!!

Anyone can ride the Gondolas. They travel from Epcot to Disney Hollywood Studio's and back with several stops at different resorts and the Main Station.

Each Gondola is decorated with whimsical pictures of different Disney Characters from Moana, Toy Story, Frozen, Star Wars and many many more, and bright colors of red, blue, yellow and other fun colors!

I got on the Skyliners at Epcot International Gateway entrance and traveled past France in Epcot and on around with a stop at Disney's New Riviera Resort and then on past Caribbean Beach Resort with a stop at the Main Station and Caribbean Beach Resort stop. This is where I transferred Gondola's to the Skyliner heading to Disney's Hollywood Studio. Travel time took a little over 15 minutes. At the Station you can also transfer to another Skyliner that will transport you on over to Disney Pop Century and Disney Art of Animation.

What an incredible way to travel around Disney World Resorts! Give me a call and lets get planning your magical vacation in Disney World where you can experience the amazing views and enjoy a ride on Disney Skyliner.
