Fantastic

Reviewed 27 december, 2021

We stayed at the club level room for Christmas and it was wonderful. Our room was big, nice bathroom (no tub however), comfortable bed. Amenities with club level were great, they seem to have everything back now. Food options and drink options very good, they also stocked our fridge for us with waters as requested. The view from our room was unexpectedly lovely, we could see cinderella's castle, see fireworks, and even hear some of the music with the night show. The lodge atmosphere is wonderful and beautifully decorated for Christmas. I wish they had some sort of intermittent entertainment in the lobby, such as carolers or a pianist or violinist...the lodge is modeled after the one in Yellowstone, and because of such, is designed such that people are naturally attracted to the lobby (all 7 floors have seating around the lobby area where you can look down). Having this would had made the hotel essentially perfect. Gift shop has some unique souvenirs which were fun to look at and consider purchasing. Staff were very friendly. Parking was easy and close to the hotel. Easy to get to our rooms from the lobby. Rooms were quiet, never heard anyone outside or our neighbors. Fantastic experience. We will be back.

Nice Resort, Horrible Food and other glitches

Reviewed 22 december, 2021

Beautiful resort and decent amenities but the food ultimately will prevent us from coming back. Good: -Beautiful and tranquil and during Christmas can't be beat. You will be transported to a fairy tale like setting. -Nice boat ride to Magic Kingdom -Great Pools and one with slide and kids play area Bad: -Food!!! Just horibble:( -Raging Forks: quick grab with zero variety. No milk for coffee- ever! just cheap coffee mate creamers-yuck! Made from powder scrambled eggs- r u kidding me??! No maple syrup or whipped cream available for waffles. Our son couldnt force himself to eat the slimy table syrup included with mickey waffles. -The same items every day and by day 3 we were willing to go hungry or cab outside WDW for real food. -Whispering Canyon: bad tasting and over- priced. Had reservations for breakfast and dinner and each time was very underwhelming. Food had no flavor or was foul. Avocado toast at breakfast ruined as it was covered with mustard drenched jack fruit. R u kidding me? -Outdoor restaurant and grill: a little better and had fish and salad options. We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner- not a cheap one- and they presented it with plastic cups!! That was the last straw for us. -Room: small but we managed. Safe was broken and not repaired till second day. Room was frigid even with heat on and extra blankets. The bed linens only include a sheet and super think blanket. Water smells funny in taps as well. -Domestic dispute 2 doors down from us on our floor and police in the hallway talking at night for 1hr just left a bad taste in our mouths. -Disney Magic Express: Arrived on time to take us to airport but stopped to pick up one family at grand floridian. That family forget luggage and forced the bus back to the resort just a couple miles to the airport. Bus load of angry people and we nearly missed our flight. Had to beg to be let off at the curb and ran for the door with our luggage. Never taking the Magical Express again.

Not what it used to be.

Disney appears to be cutting back a lot and services that made visiting the resorts easier and less expensive. Lets start with the Magic Bus service from the airpot, Disney had a program where you check your luggage at your home airport and the luggage would end up right in your resort room, when you arrive in Orlando you would get a nice bus ride to your resort, all at no additional cost. Starting in January this service is no longer free. Arriving at the resort I was shocked to see that valet parking is now $33.00 per day: yes per day. I pulled up to the resort and nobody approached me to offer baggage assistance. I waited and finally decided to bring it to my room myself. Noted also was that there were only two desk services representatives working,(during holiday season). I know, they will try to blame COVID for that. My room was fair, the pull out couch was horrendous and had a mattress was only about 3 inches thick. The room was very clean and well appointed and as always the resort was beautiful and the pool areas were awesome. Some of the "magic" appears to have diminished since the COVID thing started.

Wonderful resort;magical at Christmas

Reviewed 19 december, 2021

We booked this hotel for our dream disney vacation to celebrate my mom's retirement. We had been planning a trip since late 2019. We did mobile check-in at least a week early but our room wasn't ready when we arrived but was ready about 45 minutes later. We booked a courtyard view room and found that they put us on the 7th floor! This is in the unopened club level. Unfortunately our Magic bands were not properly programmed to access the club level and it took 3 tries and a cast member escort to get it right but we did get in. We were mildly disappointed to have an enclosed balcony at first but we immediately realized how special our room was. There were maybe 1-2 other rooms filled on this floor our entire stay and it was so cool to see the views of the lobby and the hotel grounds from the 7th floor. A little bit of pixie dust to have such a quiet, relaxing location. The lobby is absolutely stunning decked out in Christmas decor and the ambiance is great with Christmas music softly playing. The feature pool is beautiful and fun with a slide thar my 5 year old had fun on and wasn't intimidated by. There is also a splash area for kids and 2 hot tubs in the feature pool area. We loved the pool and found ourselves here 3 times during our stay. The cast members were very friendly throughout our stay and helped us whenever we needed it. We did use valet services and it is included if you have handicapped parking since there really isn't convenient parking to the lodge. The cast members were always fast with getting our car. As for dining- we never had a problem or went hungry. We had reservations for Whispering Canyon one evening- the skillets were good and the cast members fun. They hung up my sons artwork. Geyser Point is beautiful- we watched the electric water pageant from here and that was nice. We went ton territory lounge 2 times- which is a nice relaxing lounge that was never busy and inside the hotel- which was very convenient. We did some grab and go breakfast at roaring fork but didn't experience their hot food. The boat to MK from the lodge is absolutely magical. We went to MK 3 times during our trip and for 4/6 voyages we walked right onto the boat with no wait then you are closer to the MK front gate than anyone else upon arrival. One evening there was a boat down for technical difficulties so we had to wait quite awhile and nearly missed our Jingle Cruise lighting lane. This seems to be rare but be aware that it could happen. Overall the boat to MK was one of my favorite things about staying at wilderness especially after riding the resort monorail loop on our last day. If staying in the Magic kingdom area I would definitely pick wilderness Lodge again. Overall this resort is amazing (and expensive) but I can't say enough wonderful things about it. We were so happy we stayed here.

Talk about the perfect place to stay for the Holidays! Had a DVC Villa in the Boulder Ridge condos and had everything we could need .. .. Just sitting in that beautiful lobby, in front of the fireplace with that tremendous Christmas Tree just off to the side, I honestly felt sad to leave .. .. sad .. .. For me, this property embodies every single thing Christmas should be .. ..
