Wilderness Lodge is a very relaxing hotel. Our room (5054) had a great view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks.

Wilderness Lodge is an excellent choice for a solo, resort-intensive trip. Nice dinner at Geyser Point Grill and fireworks afterwards with music piped in.

Dining

Dining choices at Wilderness Lodge are informal and tasty. Breakfast at Whispering Canyon is almost a rite of passage. On cooler evenings, a drink at Geyser Point is a great way to end the day.

Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White Artist Point is home to the fixed-price "Story Book Dining at Artist Point" character meal. Characters include Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen—odd choices for a restaurant, as Snow White falls into a coma immediately after eating doctored food. (Apparently Disney’s in on the joke, though, because there’s a “Poison” Apple dessert.)

Whispering Canyon Cafe The all-you-can-eat skillets give hungry folks their money’s worth.

Geyser Point Bar & Grill The quality of the food and the view of the resort area from any given table combine to create an upscale quick-service dining experience. Best of all, guests don’t have to fuss with paper plates and trays of food in the busy dining area; ordered food is delivered to guests at their chosen tables on real dishes with nonplastic silverware (or neatly packaged in to-go containers, if so desired). This family from London thinks Geyser Point is worth a quick boat or bus ride from the Magic Kingdom: We found Geyser Point to be a brilliant place for lunch after a morning in the Magic Kingdom. Although not air-conditioned, it was still cool, very relaxing with nice views and comfortable chairs. Plus it’s quick-service, but you get waited on.

Roaring Fork Quick-service eatery for Wilderness Lodge, serving up typical breakfast fare in the morning and sandwiches (including burgers and barbecue) for lunch and dinner.

Territory Lounge Territory Lounge at the Wilderness Lodge Resort is one of our favorite lounges in one of our favorite resorts in one of our favorite Walt Disney Worlds (whoops, got carried away there). It is well themed, often quiet, and serves good food and good drinks. Tucked into a corner of the massive Lodge lobby, the lounge can be missed easily, but we recommend seeking it out for a pleasant evening. The Wilderness Lodge is meant to resemble grand log buildings found in the United States’ national parks of the west, specifically in Yellowstone and Yosemite. Territory Lounge plays off this general theme wonderfully without being simply a copy of it. While there is a definite western pioneer spirit to the lounge, you will also see a focus on a skill that was very important to the expansion of America: Cartography, the science of mapmaking. Of immediate notice is the fantastic wooden bar, with the rear mirror being held up by two large, carved bears. If you keep looking up, a large map covers the center of the ceiling and is surrounded by beautiful exposed logs. Along the walls are many paintings and pictures, but also several shadow boxes. You should definitely take some time here to examine the boxes, as they contain treasures of America’s past. There are displays of mining tools as well as mapmaking instruments and survey equipment. For the most part, the drinks are the standards of the Disney bar menu, but there are a few things of note, mostly for the beer and wine drinkers. A few of the draught beers are local to Canada and the northwest U.S. such as Moosehead (Canada) and Widmer (Oregon). The wine list is even more special, as it is the list used in Artist Point, the signature restaurant also located in the Wilderness Lodge. Contained on that list are several great selections from the Pacific Northwest. The food at Territory Lounge is also centered on the Pacific Northwest and contains a handful of appetizers like smokey portobello mushroom soup, pulled pork nachos, and a northwest charcuterie plate. They are all high in quality and can easily be made into a meal.
