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

Part #2 - Nooks & Crannies

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.

Thanks so much for sharing. There's such a warm feeling there. We can't afford to stay there, but we visit for meals and shopping in the Mercantile. I have the small statue of the Humphrey/Mickey, etc. totem pole at home, and every time I walk by it, it makes me think of that very warm, wonderful Wilderness Lodge. I am looking forward to seeing it in Christmas decor for the first time this year. That will just be even more wonderful!

Loved seeing these pictures! We are booked here for our upcoming stay in September! Since this was the DH's favorite resort, this is where he wanted to stay, but I would love to stay at the BC/YC, but seeing this pictures, has put me in a different mood! Good job!

ehagerty.....
When I see that you have posted something new, I get very excited!! You take the most amazing pictures!! I love the food ones, but I especially love these since the WL is our ABSOLUTE favorite resort!! We are staying at the WL for our 6th time this May and looking at your pics gets me even more excited about our trip (which I didn't think possible!)
Keep up the super-duper job and I look forward to more of your pics in the future!!

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!

Have stayed at every resort except the CR. They all have their charms and amenities. WL is my favorite, by a small edge over BCV (pool) or BWI (location, exercise equipment, pool slide, walk to EP and MGM, etc.) for reasons that I had documented and was once able to find and link to on these threads..... don't know what happened to it!

Have you ever considered renting DVC points? In low season, a studio might net out to price of a moderate - or possibly even a value - resort. There is a thread on this site to read up on it. You can always try it for a night or two to keep the risk low and experiment..... Just a thought!
