Wilderness Lodge Music

Wilderness Lodge Music

Below is a list of the Wilderness Lodge music played in the lobby of the fabulous Disney World resort hotel.

Years ago, Mike and I spent half of our honeymoon at the Wilderness Lodge. You know how they always say that music is the soundtrack of your life? Well, we both fondly remember the music that was played in the lodge and it’s surrounding areas.

Music has a way of taking you back to another time. The whole time we were there we kept asking if we could buy a CD with all of the lobby music. The staff just laughed and said that many people had asked the same thing….

The Wilderness Lodge music brings back wonderful memories of when we started our lives together and will always be special to us.

Over the years we have tried to remember the exact tune of one of the songs, but it keeps getting jumbled with the themes from J.A.G. and The Goonies!

Well, a few years later we were visiting the lodge for dinner with our kids at the Whispering Canyon Café. I wandered into the Mercantile Shop and again asked my question about the availability of the music. The answer was the same, but this time the nice lady handed me a list of the music. So, it was a start.

Now I would like to share that list with you. Below is the list of the Wilderness Lodge music that was given to me upon request at the Mercantile Shop in the Wilderness Lodge. (here is a printable version)

I have also included links in case you’d like to purchase some or all of the songs on itunes for your own collection.
