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

http://ehagerty.zenfolio.com/img/v3/p829415651-4.jpg






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...

http://ehagerty.zenfolio.com/img/v3/p858801011-4.jpg






WLV Lobby Fireplace

http://ehagerty.zenfolio.com/img/v3/p699347312-3.jpg






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!

AWESOME pictures!! Thanks so much for sharing them! :thumbsup2

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

kribit 01-23-2007 08:39 AM

What lovely pictures. Can't wait to stay here!

MeMom 01-23-2007 09:04 AM

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!

Thank you for sharing. I am looking forward to my stay at the WL in December.

UGAFan0829 01-23-2007 09:32 AM

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!

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!
