Picture This: A WILDERNESS LODGE PICTORIAL OVERVIEW

Howdy!

This Trip Report covers our most recent stay from July 31 - August 10, 2013 at Wilderness Lodge's wonderful Old Faithful Club.

Unlike my previous Trip Reports that were more in-depth reviews, this Trip Report is a pictorial overview of Wilderness Lodge and the Villas. I have included links below to my other two 2012 Trip Reports that cover WL and FW in more depth and detail. There is also a link to the Wilderness Lodge information thread where I hope you'll pull-up a rocker and join us anytime. There are many photos and lots of information on WL/VWL on the first page. Please feel free to post to this TR any questions you might have. We will be returning to Wilderness Lodge Christmas 2013 and I will post my photos to the Wilderness Lodge thread.

Great job on the pics posted so far. It amazes me how many people don't have or don't take the time to explore WL. I just love to walk each floor of the lobby area and find all the "hidden" areas. That front balcony is my favorite of all outside areas, especially in the mornings. Can't wait to take my millions of WL pics next week.

Thank you, but that's all I've got - this trip at least. You're right, I've been many times, but still seem to find something "new" each visit. Same holds true for the parks, too. I never tire of them or the resorts. I hope you have a great stay and maybe you could post some of your photos to the WL thread?

And this is why we would choose WL over Poly or BC!

Love, love love!

Thanks for sharing! My kids convinced me to change from GF to WL bunk bed courtyard view & I was feeling pretty bummed. This really helped .

Oh, Kookster, you're KILLING ME! I was seriously about to yell for Danimal to come look. Then I realized the time, and that tomorrow is the first day of school. Priorities and all that.
