May 28, 1994 – The Wilderness Lodge Resort Opens
“Soak in the splendor of the great outdoors, from nature trails through pine forests to rocking chairs that overlook a murmuring creek.”
On May 28, 1994, the Wilderness Lodge Resort opened in Walt Disney World near the Magic Kingdom Park. The resort was designed with the National Park hotels in mind, inspired by such buildings as the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park. The resort itself has many amenities, including a campfire with activities, jogging trails, and a guided fishing excursion. The resort also features the Firerock Geyser, which erupts near the pool area on a regular schedule.
