Wilderness Lodge - Castle View??

Hi everyone! We are planning our trip for next November and deciding what resort to stay at. I would love to stay at WL. But I was curious, does WL have a "castle view" room? If so, is it considered a woods view or courtyard view? Is it only club level? If we decide to stay there and and to get a castle view (assuming there is one), I just want to make sure what type of room to book.

Thanks ahead!!

From what I remember, you cannot see the castle from there

Oh contraire....

Here was our view this July



We were club level, but if you have a woods view room and request a high floor in the North Wing overlooking Otter Pond, you should be all good.

I think you can see PART of the castle from a few rooms, Woods view on the north side of the building. You would have to request a high floor (5 or 6 - I think 7 is CL?) in that area in that part of the building, so there is no guarantee. And if the trees have grown or filled in, the view may be gone. There's no comparison to a Poly/GF/CR castle view, though.

As mentioned, it's not a guarantee that you'd get that view, it's not a bookable category, and CL is the top floor.
