Firerock Geyser at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Posted on
The beauty of Walt Disney World is you can enjoy the parks and the resorts. Disney's Wilderness Lodge has so much to offer from a romantic dining experience at Artist Point, fun (and I mean really fun) family dining at Whispering Canyon, details to discover in the spacious lobby and a surprise by following the flowing spring. The spring starts in the lobby and flows out to Silver Creek Falls. People can slide from the falls into the swimming pool. Make your way along the boardwalk path to the hot springs (jacuzzis), you will come across a sign informing you of Firerock Geyser. If you ask one of the Wilderness Lodge's rangers, they will tell you the geyser erupts every half hour.

So of course, this is what graces the Magic Kingdom guide map cover. Guide maps for the four WDW parks are available just past the turnstiles. They are offered in the following languages: German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Portuguese, and English.
