    I thought I read that Wilderness Lodge remodeled the rooms to brighten them up . Do you know if that occurred?

    Hi there, Patricia!

    Disney's Wilderness Lodge is currently undergoing a "rolling rehab," meaning that some of its rooms are closed for renovation and refreshing while the Resort remains open. When the rooms re-open, the next set of rooms on the schedule will be closed.

    According to the blog TouringPlans.com.

    In February 2012, "the Walt Disney World Resort filed paperwork indicating plans to fully renovate and refurbish the guest hotel rooms at the Wilderness Lodge and Saratoga Springs Resorts. The work on the guest rooms should commence in the next few months and will likely be performed in gradual phases. The contractor, Thor Construction Services, is known for some fairly impressive high-end “luxe” looking projects, including nightclubs and resorts in Las Vegas.

    The Wilderness Lodge room rehab (Disney actually calls it a “room rehab” in the filings) should finish by April 2013, while work on the Saratoga Springs rooms should be finished by the end of March 2013."

    When you call to make your reservation, you may absolutely request one of the recently refreshed rooms. Of course, there is no guarantee that these rooms will be finished, available, and unoccupied during the time of your visit, but the Cast Members will try their hardest to accommodate your request.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
