The Grand Fireplace at Wilderness Lodge

One of the most impressive features at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has got to be the towering 82-foot tall stone lobby fireplace. This unique piece of Americana is a tribute to the brilliance of design by a woman names Mary Colter, who pioneered the “National Park Rustic” style that you can find throughout the Wilderness Lodge. Mary is well known for her work on behalf of the Fred Harvey Company deigning the beautiful Bright Angel Lodge at the Grand Canyon.

Wilderness Lodge Resort Mugs

Refillable mugs can be purchased at Roaring Forks Café and in the mercantile at Wilderness Lodge as well as most of the counter service restaurants and gift shops at other Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. While they used to be unique to each location, since 2006 they have become one standard design all across property. I understand that it saves the company money, but honestly I miss the unique resort mugs.

Water Mice at Teton Rentals

You see them speeding and sprinting across water ways around Walt Disney World, but no where can you have more fun in these two-seater speed boats (commonly referred to as “water mice”) than when you take off to explore Bay Lake from Teton Rentals at the Wilderness Lodge.

Fort Wilderness' Trails End Restaurant

Just a short boat ride away from the Wilderness Lodge lies one of my favorite "secret" Disney restaurants, the Trails End at Fort Wilderness. With it's hearty down home cooking and easy on the budget prices Trails End offers a meal that just about anyone will enjoy. A favorite with Camp Ground Guests for years, few not staying at Fort Wilderness make the trip to eat here. I think that they're missing out.

However, faced with making some tight budget decisions on our Orlando Vacation, I feel like I’ve discovered a secret beauty to staying in a villa.
