Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has quickly become one of our favorite places to stay. The theming, the ambiance, and the convenience of Magic Kingdom just make this a top choice for us. And even though it’s a deluxe resort, it tends to be one of the lower-priced ones at that. And you can really get a great deal on when the rooms are offered at a discount. Since we’ve stayed here a few times now, we’ve been able to experience all of the resort’s dining options. And one of our favorite spots at Wilderness Lodge is Geyser Point Bar and Grill.
Dining at Wilderness Lodge
Wilderness Lodge has a variety of dining options. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat, grabbing a drink before dinner, a character meal, or a sit-down restaurant, Wilderness Lodge has you covered. Roaring Fork is the resort’s main quick-service dining option, with breakfast, lunch, and dinner offered. Territory Lounge is the resort’s lounge/bar that’s super cozy and tucked away. Perfect for grabbing a drink before heading to Story Book Dining at Artist Point, or just relaxing mid-day with a drink and snack. Whispering Canyon is the main sit-down restaurant, and even though their shenanigans are a bit much for some, they have great food and are generally fairly reasonably priced. And for the character meal-loving fans, Story Book Dining at Artist Point in our opinion, is one of the best character meals at Walt Disney World.
And lastly, Geyser Point Bar and Grill is the slightly casual, waterfront bar and grill at Wilderness Lodge.
Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Wilderness Lodge
Most resorts have a pool bar. Wilderness Lodge currently does not. They used to, but with the opening of Geyser Point Bar and Grill, that is no longer an option. Geyser Point offers a full bar menu though, as well as a full dinner menu. They usually open at 11 am, but this can change depending on the season, so just be sure to check their hours before planning whether or not you’d like to eat here.
They serve a full menu and also have a full bar. Their menu consists of small bites like charcuterie and wings, as well as full entrees like salmon, burgers, and salads. The restaurant is open-air and looks out over the water. So it’s a perfect place to enjoy a sunset or just an outdoor meal shaded by the Florida sun. Prices are pretty reasonable at Geyser Point Bar and Grill. And you could easily get a meal for under $20 here. For the full Geyser Point menu, click here.
Mobile Order at Geyser Point Bar and Grill
If you’re not looking to have a sit-down meal, or maybe you just want to grab something quick and bring it back to your room, Geyser Point offers mobile order for to-go items. Mobile order offers most of the items available on the regular menu. With the exception of cocktails, there are even a few alcoholic drinks like beer or wine from the mobile order menu. You can mobile order right through the My Disney Experience app, and choose the time that works best for you.
This is a super convenient option for those who maybe want to escape the summer heat or rain, or just want a relaxing night in. You can also take your food to go and sit at any of the tables near the restaurant as well.
Using the walk-up list at Geyser Point Bar and Grill
Geyser Point Bar and Grill utilizes a walk-up list during busier times. You can check to see how long the wait is just by looking in the My Disney Experience app. And you can either join the walk-up list on the app or have it added in person. During the day, the wait is usually pretty minimal, but at dinnertime, you can expect it to be a little longer. You generally can’t put your name on the walk-up list until you’re in reasonable proximity to the restaurant. So if you’re on the boat from Magic Kingdom and want to join it, you’ll need to wait until you disembark to have your name added.
You can’t make reservations at Geyser Point Bar and Grill, so your best bet is to plan when you want to eat there and try to be at Wilderness Lodge about 20-30 minutes beforehand.
Geyser Point Bar and Grill Review
Not every deluxe resort offers something like Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Wilderness Lodge. But we tend to find the ones that do often tend to be quite good. Geyser Point is no exception. The food was excellent and the portions were decent. And for the price, we thought the food was very good quality.
We’ve ordered here several times and have tried most of the menu items. The Cheese and Charcuterie board is great and it’s actually pretty huge. For $18, we’ve actually joked that could have been our entire dinner. It’s massive! We’ve also had the Teriyaki Chicken Wings and the Cheesy Barbeque Brisket from the appetizer menu. Both are delicious. And the wings are probably the best I’ve had on the property. We’ve also tried the Bison Cheeseburger, the Turkey Sandwich, and the Multigrain and Grilled Portobello Salad.
We’ve actually never had something here we didn’t like. And although the cheeseburger doesn’t compare to that of Steakhouse 71, or even Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Coronado Springs, it’s pretty fantastic. Especially if you prefer bison over ground beef. We’ve had a few of their drinks as well, and as with all of the drinks on Disney property, they’re not cheap. But definitely a little stronger than some you’ll find in the Parks.
Overall, we love Geyser Point Bar and Grill. It’s become one of our favorite Disney restaurants that don’t require a reservation. Just like Wilderness Lodge itself, the ambiance is perfect. We’ve always had good service, the food is reasonably priced and delicious. Can’t go wrong with that! Have you eaten here before? We highly recommend adding it to your Disney dining list!
