tigger137,

I've been there and didn't see the mouse, nor have I seen a picture of it before -- thanks so much!

Hadn't seen these before, either, and think they're adorable. Is that from a refurbed room, Reto?:

Thinking of upgrading from POFQ never stayed at WL, what kind of views do standard rooms have & do any if them have balconies?

All rooms at WL have balconies, and by booking Standard View you could wind up overlooking a variety of different things. The least desirable is over a loading dock area on the North side of the resort, where there is noise from the trucks coming in, but you do have a chance at seeing MK in the distance over the trees.

There are view pictures and a location map on the large WL theread here.
Something to remember is that by booking Standard View you will wind up with standard view or better. While upgrades are not guarranteed, they often occur because most rooms at WL are at least Woods View.

We booked Standard View both times we went, and got upgraded to a beautiful courtyard view one time and a Woods View another. Below is a pic of the Wooods View, although the rooms one floor lower are considered Standard View.

GrandCalifornian did a wonderful job answering your questions so I just want to also invite you over to the WL/VWL thread anytime. There are photos on the first page of the STD view on the other side of the resort, the North Wing, which face out and up toward the CR, MK. If you have a high enough floor, you can see some of Wishes, but as GC said, when you look down, you will see the Smokehouse and some delivery trucks, which beep when they back-up.

Everyone on the thread is very friendly and happy to answer any questions you might have.

Thank you for the compliment. Glad you enjoyed them. It is nice to be 'in' Disney World every day in a small way through pictures and videos.

We have only stayed at Wilderness Lodge once, but we're staying there again in December. We visit often, though, to eat and/or take pictures. Whispering Canyon is my oldest son's #1 dining request for the December trip.

VWL is our DVC home resort - love it so much. As I was scrolling through the last set of images, I kept expecting to see Ranger Stan standing there by the desk. Even though he is gone now he will always be a part of our beloved Wilderness Lodge.

I booked WL for my 40th birthday! I have always wanted to stay here. Only 421 days to go until my family and I get to visit. Looking at all the pictures makes me want to go tomorrow.
