The Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Location

The Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, are surprisingly enough, located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort.  Wilderness Lodge is a Magic Kingdom Resort – you can’t see Magic Kingdom from the area but you’re only a boat ride away from it. Because of that, these villas are considered a prime location.

Dining

There are no dining options at the Villas themselves but Guests have access to all the options at Wilderness Lodge, including:

  • Tour pass – poolside bar
  • Territory Lounge – a bar serving alcoholic drinks and coffees. They also do light snacks.
  • Whispering Canyon Cafe – this is a popular western themed restaurant. It is family style, so a platter is brought to the table where you all help yourselves and can request more of anything you run out of. This is a pretty raucous affair with horse races and yee-haa-ing through out. And don’t ask for ketchup – trust me!
  • Artist Point is an upscale restaurant with a focus on seafood, game and steak. It is famous for its Cedar Plank Salmon.

Transport

  • Boat or bus to Magic Kingdom
  • Disney bus transportation to all the Walt Disney World theme parks and Downtown Disney.
