Wilderness Lodge Lobby

Whether you’re staying at or just visiting Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, there’s plenty to learn while you’re there.
This resort is themed around our great National Park lodges and the Pacific Northwest. As you look around, you’ll spot nods to the wildlife, Native American influences, and natural wonders of the area.

A centerpiece of the lobby is the 80 ft tall fireplace that replicates the geologic makeup of the Grand Canyon. On each floor of the resort, you will find a case that shows examples of the rocks, fossils, and minerals that are found in each canyon layer, on level with the layers in the fireplace.

From the balconies in the lobby, little ones can have fun spotting the different animals carved into the towering beams or painted on the giant totem poles. And if you’re wandering outside, challenge the kids to look for buffalo tracks in the sidewalks.
