Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge to Feature Table Service Restaurant on Bay Lake

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

If you’re a fan of Three Bridges Bar and Grill (located at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort), or even the neighboring Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, you’ll be happy to know that once Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge opens, you’ll have a similar waterfront dining location to enjoy.

The Lakeside Lodge, announced during last year’s Destination D event, will be a new deluxe, nature-inspired resort coming to Walt Disney World that will feature more than 900 hotel rooms and proposed Disney Vacation Club villas. This resort is currently being built on the site of the former River Country water park on the shore of Bay Lake,adjacent to Fort Wilderness.

Permits filed earlier in May revealed the general outline of Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge, including its DVC bungalows/cabins, and the changes that will be coming to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. (Currently, if you head back towards the section of Fort Wilderness where Trail’s End is located, you can see some of the construction fencing by the bus stop.)

A closer look at what would be quadrant C-102 (just above, but also crossing into C-105) reveals an oddly-shaped building jutting out from past the shore, with rectangular sections. That’s where the proposed table service restaurant will be located. Unlike the other lakeside dining establishments mentioned earlier in the article, this restaurant is set to be a full-on, standalone table service restaurant on Bay Lake, and we can’t wait to see what the artists renderings and interior for such a concept will look like.

If you’re looking forward to potentially staying at Reflections, and are worried about the availability of counter service options, don’t worry, you won’t have to head over to Fort Wilderness or Roaring Fork at Wilderness Lodge. The main building of the resort is set to have a counter service restaurant on the first floor.

We expect further details and concept art for the resort to be released in the coming months, if not sooner. Are you looking forward to the new resort addition, or are you more worried about the vague future of themed resort hotels at Walt Disney World? Sound off in the comments below.

I HATE the direction that Chapek is taking the resorts. I don’t want “modern”, I want themed! And seriously, stop with the constant IPs. It just cheapens everything. Like, why is Snow White in the Wilderness Lodge? How does she thematically fit into the Pacific Northwest? At Disney, you are supposed to be storytellers! I hate seeing how they are watering down and destroying the brand.

So from looking at the plans the dvc cabins will take over the beach area so that means no viewing area for the electrical water pageant show for guest camping at fort wilderness not cool disney not cool.

I’d love to see some Disney infusion, but fear it will be like the copper Creek cabins, which are beautiful but far from any true Disney theme. We’re staying at the Riviera in December. The rooms there look Disney inspired, at least the models.

Thanks for the write up 👍

I’m very disappointed that they are building another resort by the campground, instead of putting in more sites. There is enough property to leave the Fort alone.

I think a better name would be the Lake Place. That way you could say I’m going to our Lake Place.
