When referring to Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, what do Lincoln Logs, Bison Topiaries and American Craftsmanship, have in common? If you thought of the Grand Floridian– you’re wrong, if you said the Polynesian Village ResortWrongo, but if you guessed- Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, ding, ding, ding, now your cooking with gas!

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is themed after National Parks of the Pacific Northwest. This hotel exudes a certain stillness that the adjacent more expensive Disney Resort Hotels do not. If you want serene, deluxe accommodations located within the Magic Kingdom Resort Area, then this is the ideal retreat for you.
