No. 11 Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Lake Buena Vista, FL
The larger-than-life lobby—eight stories high, featuring a gushing river and a rock-laden, floor-to-ceiling fireplace—is an attraction in its own right. Disney’s most rustic property embraces the all-American outdoors, with a pine-tree-wreathed pool and a man-made geyser that shoots out plumes of water on the hour. Families can catch a campfire sing-along attended by Chip ‘n’ Dale at the adjoining Wilderness Resort & Campground.
