Looking at the two lodges, I struggle to make a decision.
Proximity to the parks the winner is handedly Wilderness Lodge.
Scenery and quality of stay to me AKL looks newer and more "deluxe" in its overall appeal. Wilderness Lodge looks more like a cabin like lodge haha with not to much deluxe to it other than the Lobby and the grounds outside of it.
Can anyone address proximity to the parks in detail?
What are the average times via bus and via car from AKL to each of the parks?
What are the average times via bus and via car from WL to each of the parks?
-- I know the WL has a boat which may be quicker than the bus. However, the bus does seem quicker.
Price wise they are equal. I would't get a special view at the AKL, so the standard view price at both is the same.
Trip advisor gives the higher ranking to AKL: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Rev...o_Florida.html
