Major Disney's Wilderness Lodge Refurbishment Continues

As previously reported, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is undergoing numerous refurbishment projects in an effort to enhance and refresh the Guest experience.
Beginning in January 2016, select areas of the resort will be temporarily closed due to the refurbishment, including the rooms in the south wing (unavailable starting from January 1), Cub’s Den (unavailable starting from Jan. 2), and the South Wing and Lobby Elevators (unavailable beginning from January 5).

Effective January 5, all Guests will be directed to use the elevators located near Roaring Fork Snacks, or take the stairs in the north wing. These will be the only elevators available in our main building. To get to these elevators from the lobby, Guests must:
  • Take the ramp down toward Roaring Fork Snacks;
  • Turn left at the bottom of the ramp;
  • Continue walking. Elevator bank is located on the left hand side at the end of the corridor.

The resort is committed to providing a great experience throughout the project. Thanks for your patience.
