The design of this Walt Disney World deluxe resort was inspired by National Park Service lodges like the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone and the Ahwahnee in Yosemite. Beyond the Lodge's soaring lobby, the hotel's 727 guestrooms feature Mission-style furnishings with quilted bedspreads.
The resort really is almost perfect. If I had to nit-pick The rooms (recently renovated) could use freshening up again (and a more modern feel like the new Copper Creek Villas), but the addition of a new feature pool, new outdoor bar and grill, refurbished QS Dining and general improvements make this really the best value for your money in the Deluxe bracket, plus it really feels the most removed and secluded of all deluxe resorts, even though Magic Kingdom is literally just around the rover (ok, lake) bend.
