    Hi Marc! You answered a question about the Wilderness lodge recently, and mentioned the tour of the Lodge. I can't seem to find more info about this and wondered if you could help me. Looking for days offered, what it covers, and how long for the tour. THX

    Hi Jennie!

           My son and I just loved the Wilderness Lodge Tour!  When my fellow Mom, Kathie told me about this free tour, I just knew that I had to do it. The Wilderness Lodge Tour is called "The Wonders of the Lodge Tour" and it is typically offered Wednesday to Saturday at 9:00 am. You can inquire at the Wilderness Lodge's front desk to see when it is being offered during your trip. You meet at 9:00 am at the tall group of carved poles nearest to the Wilderness Lodge Store and the guest services desk.  

         On the tour, a Wilderness Lodge Ranger reveals information about the Wilderness Lodge that not everyone knows--or would even guess. It is a about an hour tour, but it can last longer if you ask a lot of questions like I did!  If Ranger Joe is your tour guide, please say hi to him for me and don't forget to ask him to point out some Hidden Mickeys to you along the tour.

    Here is another tip, when you check into the Wilderness Lodge, request to be "the Flag Family" during your stay.  Each day, a family is picked to raise the flag on top of the Wilderness Lodge early in the morning.  This family gets to have this special honor and have a gorgeous view from the roof of the Wilderness Lodge!  You are not guaranteed to receive this magic moment, but it never hurts to ask for it!

    I hope that you make some incredible, new memories exploring the Wilderness Lodge during your next trip to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
