Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!

on August 13, 2015

Escape to the rustic majesty of America’s Great Northwest. Inspired by turn-of-the-century National Park lodges, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge celebrates American craftsmanship and honors the beauty of the untamed wilderness. Soak in the splendor of the great outdoors, from nature trails through pine forests to rocking chairs that overlook a murmuring creek. Inside, discover towering totem poles, headdresses and more, and sink into a plush leather armchair in front of the roaring fireplace.

You may see or hear work in progress while we create new magic—including enhancements to Hidden Springs Pool, which will be closed from October 26, 2015 through 2017. Certain pathways and other areas will also be closed during construction, beginning in early October 2015.**
