5. Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
At this other Deluxe Villa Resort located in the Magic Kingdom Area you’ll discover the pristine natural splendor and beauty of the great outdoors. The serene setting captures the very essence of the early days of the American West, and the rustic craftsmanship details and décor of the buildings draws inspiration from traditional turn-of-the-20th-century National Park lodges. The resort provides the perfect balance of tranquil removal from all the hustle and bustle without sacrificing modern conveniences and lively onsite activities. Also, despite the seemingly remote location, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is close to the heart of all the nearby Disney action.
The resort is a true majestic wonder—a lovely scenic masterpiece that reflects nature’s beauty and abundance. Therefore, it’s not at all surprising to learn that one of its most renowned restaurants is rightly named Artist Point. Counted among the top upscale dining designations in all of Walt Disney World, the setup here is comprised of intimate lantern light, vast landscape murals and naturalistic paintings framed to look like windows. From the palette behind this artistic wonder to your own personal palate your overall dining experience will be of a most exquisite nature. Savor seasonal specialties crafted out of Pacific Northwest tradition using fresh farm-to-fork ingredients, including salad greens from Epcot’s own resident greenhouses and freshly flown-in salmon and with other rustic renderings. You’ll also delight in an award-winning wine list offering over 130 enticing selections from the northern pacific coast, including impressive libations from such states as Oregon and Washington.
For a more casual family-friendly dining option it’s no secret that Whispering Canyon Café is your best bet. With an atmosphere of levity, zany cast member antics, and all-out boisterous action throughout the day, this western-themed eatery does not at all live up to its name. It’s actually one of the liveliest mealtime experiences you can expect to find, any time of day. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, you’ll enjoy an all-you-can-eat feast of frontier favorites dished up in à la carte and family-style fashion.
