FAQs - Wilderness Lodge
Is there any information available regarding features of specific rooms at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge? has created a series of searchable databases listing very detailed information on most of the Disney Vacation Club resort guestrooms. The database allows you to search for rooms by their size (Studio, One Bedroom, etc.), class (Value, Standard, etc.), floor and many other criteria.  We even have photos of the actual balcony/patio view from many DVC guest rooms.

Where do I check in?

Arriving members check-in at the same location as all Wilderness Lodge guests. There is no separate check-in desk for the villas.

What sort of things are there to do at VWL/Wilderness Lodge?

A "flag family" is selected daily to raise the resort flags for the day.  Inquire at the concierge desk to find out if openings are available. 

At night the Electrical Water Pageant is performed in just beyond the Wilderness Lodge beach.

Hidden Mickey's are waiting to be discovered throughout the resort.

A free "Wonders of the Lodge" tour is offered several times per week.

The Fire Rock Geyser erupts every hour and is a recreation of Old Faithful.

If I'm staying in a studio, where are the laundry facilities?

There are laundry facilities on the first floor of the villa wing just past the elevators.

Where is the studio without a balcony?

All the studios on the first floor have a patio instead of a balcony. But Deluxe Studio 4533 on the fourth floor does not have a balcony at all.

The room is a lockoff villa so it may be assigned as part of a Two Bedroom accommodation or to a guest staying in a Deluxe Studio villa.

Where are the Trash/Recycling and Ice/Vending Machines at VWL?

The Trash/Recycling are in the same location on every floor. Just follow the Trash/Recycling signs.

The Ice/Vending machines are in the same location on every floor, except on the first floor, where they are with the laundry facilities. Just follow the Ice/Vending signs to locate them.
