Description

The famous lodges of American National Parks at the turn of the century are recalled at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Among the pine forests and natural surroundings on the southwestern shore of Bay Lake, the wilderness-themed resort features quarried stone and lodgepole pine with a log-structured main lobby. Next to the lodge is The Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge (part of Disney Vacation Club). A unique feature of The Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is its themed living room area that features railroad memorabilia, including a special exhibit on loan from the Disney family of two of Walt Disney’s personal scale-model train cars and a piece of the original track.
