Disney's Wilderness Lodge is designed to make you feel like you're on a vacation in one of America's national parks! The logo even looks like a national park logo, and the entrance is a ranger shack. Pine trees and flowers greet you as you walk toward the lobby. Large logs grace the entrance. Inside, the lobby ceiling is SO high! And huge totem poles have a dramatic effect. There is a fireplace with rocking chairs, and an indoor stream with a wooden bridge over it. A hallway is lined with lanterns decorated with owls. A large map hangs from the wall. 

Outside, pathways make this a nice place to wander around. There is a path past a geyser that shoots up every so often, along the lakefront (a huge lake!), and past Geyser Point Bar and Grill. It must be lovely to sit outside in the shade at this restaurant on the breezy lakefront- just what you need on a hot Florida day!
Explore the walking paths in front of the cabins, which are dotted with flowers of all kinds, and the wooden boardwalk over a swamp! It is decorated with lanterns. 
After, take the free thirty-minute boat ride to Contemporary Resort, where you can get a great view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks.
