    Hi! We're staying at FWL and I want to do a room request. The map shows theNorth wing is closer to the ferry dock and that there is possibly a walkway coming out of the far end of the wing that would put us out near the ferry. Is there an exit there?

    Hi Sarah,

    I'm so excited for you! Disney's Wilderness Lodge is the most magical of places. When my family drives up Timberline Drive on the approach to this Northwest-inspired paradise, my blood pressure drops and I just can't help but smile. You are going to have an amazing vacation with this as your home resort. 

    You are certainly welcome to place a room request on your hotel reservation. The north wing is directly behind the boat dock. We stayed in one of the rooms at the end of the north wing on my son's first trip to Walt Disney World Resort. We couldn't have asked for a better room. We could see the water launches come and go, and during the daylight hours, we could see Fire Rock Geyser erupt on the hour from our balcony. It was amazing! There is an exit near the end of the north wing which positions you just a few dozen steps away from the boat dock. While room requests are not guaranteed, I'm sure the Cast Member who assigns rooms at Disney's Wilderness Lodge will make every effort to find you a room near the boat dock. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you are assigned the room of your dreams.

    If you get the chance, be sure to stop by the new quick service restaurant at Disney's Wilderness Lodge during your upcoming stay. Geyser Point Bar & Grill is my new favorite place to dine at this resort. Their lump crab cake sandwich is so tasty, and they have some imaginative, delicious drinks on their menu as well. I'm partial to the WhipperSnapper Sour. 

    Enjoy every minute of your time at Disney's Wilderness Lodge!

    Sending best wishes and pixie dust,
