Inside The Magic: Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has been designated by the Florida Green Lodging Program, recognizing the Resort’s environmentally responsible practices.
The Florida Green Lodging Program is a voluntary initiative of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) that designates and recognizes lodging facilities that make a commitment to conserve and protect Florida’s natural resources.
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is themed to evoke the atmosphere of the Pacific Northwest, and it features both natural and Native American elements. The resort includes an artificial geyser and hot springs. The main building is modeled after the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park.
Step inside the 7-story lobby, the centerpiece of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and be awed by 2 towering totems. Each reaching 55-feet tall, one topped with a raven, the other an eagle, draw your eye up the 4 levels of corridors that surround the lobby and provide access to sitting nooks, terraces and nearly 730 Guest rooms. The various animals carved into these totems depict Native American myths and legends.
The 3-sided fireplace—with rockwork layers in hues of green, magenta, buff, black, brown and more than 95 other colors—represents the nearly 2 billion years of the Earth’s history that are exposed in the rock strata of the Grand Canyon. At 82 feet tall, the stone fireplace in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge lobby is amazing.
Relax in one of the lobby’s overstuffed leather armchairs for a closer look at the grand fireplace—you may notice fossilized plants and animals from prehistoric times.
