Wilderness Lodge Pictures

As with the Grand Floridian pictures, I have "all the usual" pictures posted previously. This cluster represent new views....

ADDED MORE PICTURES FROM JUNE, 2007 starting on page 4

Part #1 - the Lobby

Calming, soothing... I'll be waiting right here







Pretty inside, pretty outside - this camera sees what the eye sees...








Quality, details, theming... Disney ....







Odd - multi-textured - but I like it..... reflections into the headress display case








Relax - set a spell - listen to the best durn hotel sound track ever....







And my new favorite WL lobby picture

Post-card writing desk - at least that is what I imagine it to be








Bear Lamp







Keep my chair warm...








Balcony to balcony








The rug








From the upper, North balconey - into the lobby - reflecting the pool...

Favorites from prior trips

Bike Crossing Sign














Front of the Lodge








Headdress








Lampshade








Chandelier Shade








Owl Light Shade








Entrance to Territory Lounge - not a great photo, but real sense of "being there"








View from Territory Lounge (sort of) - one of my all time favorite shots - I don't know the people, but having a picture on my cube wall really makes me feel like I am looking out the window - at a family enjoying a bunny rabbit...








WLV Lobby Fireplace








Another favorite - a view from the room - another visual cue to remember what it is like to look out of the window, and feel like I am there!

Great pictures, thinking of staying at WL next time, those pictures don't do anything to discourage that.

The WL is hands down the best themed Disney resort!

I put my Wilderness Lodge soundtrack on while I viewed these photos, I almost felt like I was there! Thanks!

I got the playlist from allearsnet.com - then my son made a CD for me - which I listen to all the time!! For some odd reason, it didn't seem to be playing when we were there for dinner at Artist's Point Jan 10th! Probably just an oddity.

Flashback - 2004

Here's a kick - I actually found one of my old threads. It contains a SCANNED photo of the WLV bed (talk about picture noise - great gray grit!!). Well, I took a different job shortly after and haven't had time to write a report since!!

Mission Disney - June 2004

About that "once in a lifetime" thing - I remember it well - it all starts out that way. It doesn't even last through the vacation. It hits different people at different times. Most of us, it occurs around the day before check-out - when you realize that you need to start planning the next one, just to relieve the sadness of this one ending.....

I warn everyone - that "once in a lifetime" turns quickly into "the annual Disney vacation" - and shortly after that, "I wonder what DING is doing this weekend"......

For us, 1990 was "one week at the CBR", followed the next year with "one week at the POFQ" - next year, 9 days at the YC, and a tour of DVC - bought in - started going 2x a year - started getting annual pass every third year.

Last year, it was
- Jan - 5 days OKW (with son)
- Mar - 2 days with parents (add on to company trip)
- Jun - 16 days with family (and friends)
- Oct - DVC member cruise and long weekend for Martial Arts festival

Anyway, I certainly hope you enjoy your stay - and please, do, post your pictures and reports!!
