Wilderness Lodge

Should I ask for a specific section at WL when I book my room ? From what I've read on here there really isn't a bad room. I'm going through a TA and I need to give her my request. I know a request isn't a guarantee. We are still debating between Poly and will decide based on price.

We stayed there last year for the first time and I asked that same question back then. I just searched for the post but couldn't find it. We requested a woods view in hopes of it being quite. It WAS and VERY pretty too. It overlooked a small pond. We also requested connecting rooms and got that too. The Disney reps assured us that because we had (4) children under 18, they guaranteed connecting rooms. I know I've heard differently on this site but when we booked our trip for this year at the Port Orleans, the assured us again.

We absolutely LOVED this resort and wanted to stay there this trip but we had to cut costs.

Also, when checking prices, the WL was the cheapest of the deluxe resorts.

Stayed there twice several years ago and always requested INNER COURTYARD ROOM. We were very fortunate both times and got request on fifth or sixth floors.

I can't remember the area, but there are several rooms that afford a nice view of the Electrical Water pageant from the balcony

When we stayed at the WL this year, our travel agent put us in a woods view room, but we got a surprise free upgrade to inner courtyard. We LOVED it, location was great and the view was really nice.

We asked for a lobby view room and loved it! Everything is close and it is nice to sit on the landing and watch people while drinking our coffee! Check out the hidden lounges!

I've never seen the need to request a specific section at WL.

However you may want to think about what is important to you and how it affects your stay. Do you want to be near the lobby? Elevators? Busses? Restaurants? Or would you prefer to be in a quieter section of the resort?

We wanted a quiet location. We were on the 4th floor right near the elevators. It was overlooking the pond- woods view. We saw Wishes from our room every night and it was very convenient to Roaring Forks quick service, boat launch and the pool- just a quick trip down the elevator. We loved our location! I think it was 4032. It really depends what you are looking for though. I'd go back to that room in a heartbeat!

For us, we've stayed in both wings and WLV many times but really prefer, if push came to shove, north garden wing ...

It's further from the bus stop but closet to the boats and Roaring Fork... We can hop out the room, catch the elevator and refill at the Forks and be at the pool lickity split....

Not a fan of over the lobby, favorite is courtyard , inner, but like others said... Not a bad room in the house...even rooms over the service area aren't that bad.

Thank you so much for your info! We requested woods view! Fingers crossed that we will be able to see Wishes from our room and that we end up with a balcony!

I believe all rooms have a balcony.... North wing might have a high view of some of wishes....monorail and CR plus the tress block the view of most of the fireworks....

Easy to boat over to CR and watch from one of the stairways outside !

I've never put a specific room request for WL but have always been pleased with the room I've gotten.

A friend stayed there in June and hated it. Make sure you ask for a room not near the construction.
