PHOTO TOUR OF A STANDARD ROOM AT DISNEY’S WILDERNESS LODGE

At Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge standard rooms–like those at the Animal Kingdom Lodge–are distinctive for sleeping only four, and for the overall small size of the sleeping area.

Floor Plan Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

See the floor plan. Most other Disney World standard room deluxe sleeping spaces are longer and wider, and have a couch in the lower left that provides the fifth sleeping spot.

As you enter the room, there’s a bath on one side and the closet and the coffee maker and mini-fridge on the other.

Sink Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The bath is divided into two areas, starting with these double sinks…

…and then a toilet and tub/shower combo behind a door.

Coffee Service Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

On the other side of the entry hall, there’s a coffee maker and mini-fridge, with a couple of drawers above the mini-fridge…

…that are larger than they first appear.

Here’s the inside of the fridge with a scaling object.

Closet Entry Side Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The closet is good-sized, with two sliding doors.  Here’s it open–you can see half of it…

…and the other half. Note the ironing board and luggage rack.

Bed Side Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

Deeper into the room you’ll find in most Wilderness Lodge standard rooms two queen beds on one side.

Bed Side from Back Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.netHere’s the bed side from the other corner.

Bunk Beds Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

Some of these bedrooms have kings, and–rare among Disney resorts–others have one queen and a pair of bunk beds. The bunk mattresses are about 5′ 9″ so are best for kids.

Bedside Table Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

Between them is a bedside table with a shelf below…

TV Side Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The other side of the room has the TV, dresser, and a table and two chairs.

Here’s the TV side from the back.

Dresser Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

The dresser is large. Its looks like it has six drawers…

…but in fact has three. There’s plenty of storage in the room for the four people it sleeps.

Table and Chairs Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

Between the dresser and balcony is the table and chairs, with a mirror above. There’s a Disney World rule somewhere about in what resorts these tables are round, and in which they are square. I haven’t found it yet.

Balcony Disney's Wilderness Lodge from yourfirstvisit.net

At the end of the room is the balcony. Here’s the balcony from one of our woods view rooms…

…and here’s one from a courtyard view room.

For a hotel so stunningly decorated with objects and art in its public spaces, the rooms are pretty spare.

Higher on the page you can see some minor decoration in the bath.

These nice carvings decorate the headboards…

…you’ll find this minor print on the wall by the bath.

And the bed posts have more darling carvings:

But that’s pretty much it.

These rooms are small and spare. The glory of staying at the Wilderness Lodge is outside the rooms.

Do you know the size of the wall safe in the rooms? We are thinking of taking iPad but not to parks so need to know if it will fit in the safe. Thanks, Linda
