We stayed in a club level, Deluxe room, which has a bedroom with 2 Queen beds and a separate living area. This configuration was what we were looking for and only WL and AK lodge offer this with club level access. The downside is those rooms are not on the 7th floor where the club lounge is, they are on floors 2-5 at the very end of each corridor of the hotel. So it was a long walk from the room to the club lounge. That said, they stocked your mini-fridge with whatever you wanted from milk, chocolate milk, water and sodas. We took them with us into the parks, so while we could have done a delivery of drinks to the hotel, it was nice to just have them right there all the time and not worry about having too many or too little.
The bathroom had 2 sinks which was appreciated, and the Bambi tiles that the regular rooms have which added to the theming. The rooms at the end of the hotel corridors face the water, so while that gave a nice view we could hear the boats horns late in to the night plus the loud music from the water boat light display. Our kids slept through it no problem, but something to be aware of for light sleepers. You hear it from Fort Wilderness around 10 pm as well as from WL around 9.30.
The lounge was always very quiet during breakfast when we were there, which I wasn't expecting. I was a bit disappointed with the snacks; it was dried fruit and trail mix in the main. We only really liked the pita chips. The essentially open bar and additional food was a nice bonus, although we were out most evenings so didn't really take advantage of it.
The menu at the quick service restaurant had changed from what was online, so they only had basic mickey waffles, not all the different flavor varieties. We also did the whispering canyon which was fun but I didn't feel they included all the kids for the horse race very well; mine were totally ignored in terms of being offered a horse or to participate.
That said, the WL has a lovely feel to it. Less frantic than the parks, and with the amazing lobby. The buses were frequent in the main, the boat to the park was great and a nice change to the bus, the pool was great, and our kids loved the slide and also the games room was a hit; we'd swing by on the way to the bus in the evening.
I don't know how it compares to when the new DVC properties were built, but it still felt open to me and I'd definitely highly recommend it and stay again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor if you have the deluxe club level for better water views.

When we were looking to book a WDW vacation about a year ago I considered Disney's Wilderness Lodge, but the theming didn't appeal to me so I chose Caribbean Beach. We recently went on a return trip to WDW in early September and for some reason the resort hotel I had rejected before just felt right. I am glad o went with my hunch. Everything was down right magical. I absolutely love the location of this resort. A boat ride to Magic Kingdom! I know some readers are monorail resort only people, and the Poly and Grand both offer boats. So why would this less expensive resort beat them out? The size. It's small enough that you can't possibly be in a poor location. It's a short walk to whatever it is that you want to get to. With two quick serve restaurants, refillable mugs were definitely worth the money. We also didn't HAVE to go outside if we didn't want to. It's one of the few hotels that have all of the rooms connected to the lobby. My daughter was down at concierge several times for random little things and they were always more than accommodating. The only down side was that the rooms were not very large, especially for a deluxe. It's a beautiful resort and we had a fantastic time. I can't wait to go back.

We have been staying at this resort since its original opening in 1993. It is magnificent. A southwestern vibe with 50 foot totem polls in the lobby, a massive fireplace that is at least 6 stories tall, a water stream that starts in the lobby and runs all the way to the pool (roughly 1000 feet), wonderful dining (Artist Point, Whispering Canyon, Geyser Point Lounge, and a very nice indoor lounge that serves appetizers). Some of the rooms are still basic and others are extravagant (pricing plays a role here obviously). There is completely serperate, yet close to the main resort area, DVC hotle with its own private pool. Boat dock with ferry's that will take you to the Contemporary or MGK. I cannot say enough great things about this resort. We have stayed here every year since 1993 and it never gets old.

We came for a family vacation with three children ages 97 and 11 months. The children loved this hotel. It was one of the highest quality locations I have ever stayed at. We intended to leave before the hurricane but when they close the airport today early we found ourselves stuck there for hurricane Irma. Disney went out of its way to provide entertainment and distraction during the curfew. So in the time leading up to the storm. They also went out of their way to have spectacular food choices at the in-house restaurants at a reduced price while families were trapped there by the storm. My family and I were able to sleep through the hurricane. At no point during our stated we have noise from other families. They did allow dogs in the hotel that we are sheltering from the storm there wasn't barking problem that was resolved quickly. Our concierge went out of his way to be helpful. We had a full kitchen in our suite. We had the one bedroom suite.

Our second time at this hotel and I'd forgotten how amazing it is.

Themed on an American Lodge, the detail is fantastic throughout the resort. The main foyer is breath taking.

The staff - well they are Disney staff what more can you say. Always helpful friendly and willing to go the extra mile.

There's several options for dining. Artist Point the fine dining restaurant is formal but relaxed and offers some amazing food.

Whispering Canyon is definitely for families and the young at heart. It can be noisy but is so much fun. Try asking for ketchup do your server will shout "ketchup is needed here" you will promptly have 20 or so bottles of ketchup delivered to your table.

The hotel rooms are very comfortable, and provide would would be expected from a deluxe hotel.

There's a couple of swimming pools and you can hire boats to use on the lake next to the hotel.

Transportation to the Magic Kingdom or other parts can take a bit longer than hotels on the monorail system, but the position of the hotel adds to the resort theming. We hired a car, which proved invaluable, especially when there were storms as the boats which transport you to the neighbouring hotels were taken out of service.

As a family we love this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a standard room, upper floor with magic kingdom view - great for seeing the fireworks
