    Which resort is better for kids - Wilderness Lodge or Grand Floridian?

    Hi Rebecca!

    The Wilderness Lodge is my favorite resort in all of Walt Disney World! There is so much to do for all ages at the lodge that you're sure to have a great time.

    Be sure to ask for a calendar of events at check-in or at the lobby concierge. This guide lists all of the events going on during your stay at the Lodge.

    Here are a few of my kids favorites:
    • Cookie Decorating at Roaring Forks- A fun activity for all ages (yes, even I have decorated one!). This free activity is held most afternoons and is a fun, and yummy treat!
    • Duck Races are often held near the pool area. Kids get to race Rubber Duckies down the small stream that runs down to the pool.
    • Movies on the Beach are held most evenings (weather permitting) on the Wilderness Lodge beach. Check out a Disney flick and relax under the stars!
    • For adults, I can highly recommend the Wonders of the Lodge tour held many mornings starting in the lobby. You'll explore the different floors of the lodge with a Ranger. Be sure to ask lots of questions, he's full of knowledge!
    • Pool activities are scheduled each day and are a great way to give kids a break from touring.
    And, last but not least, if you'd like to take a boat ride over to Ft. Wilderness, the Campfire Sing-Along with Chip and Dale is a fun, free way to spend an evening with the characters! Smores kits are available at the bonfire, but there is an additional charge for those.

    Hope this helps! Have a great time at the lodge!
