Inside a 2 Bedroom Villa at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

This past June, we had the pleasure of staying in a dedicated 2 bedroom Villa at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. The roomy suite #5537 was more than large enough for our family of four adults and one teenager, plus guests as we entertained. We loved having the expansive space of the villa, a full kitchen, jacuzzi tub, and an in room washer and dryer. It was a comfortable and homey environment to relax in when we weren't off touring the parks.

We Need Ketchup!
