Here are a few from our September/October trip last year. The daytime views are from the roof when we were flag family

Beautiful, Christine! Thank you for posting them. It was also nice to see my favorite monorail and my other favorite resort - CR.

Christine - Beautiful photos, the best I have ever seen. I had no idea the views from the roof, too bad they did not build the lodge with 8 or 9 floors, those rooms would have had awesome views

Thanks for sharing

Beautiful work, Peter. I'm going to remind everyone over on the WL to come over here and take a look at your beautiful photos (and Jen's slide show)
Thanks. We love the lodge so much. I can't wait for our Christmas stay there this year - first time to ever be at WDW for Christmas.

The views from the roof were amazing! The ranger pointed out all the local landmarks to us, and I have some pretty pictures of the GF, Poly and Swan somewhere too. There are some pretty cool ones of the Contemporary in my flickr stream also. Sadly, I have only gone through one day's worth the pics from our September trip so far. I know I have some more of the lodge somewhere, and will try to post them after I find em

We loved the WL and it is just a stunning resort!

Thanks!

Did you like the panoramic views better than the closeup shots of the Grand Floridian and Polynesian?

I could be wrong here, but isn't that the dock with the CR in the background?

Those panoramics offer a great perspective of the Poly and GF that you usually never see. Someone needs to chop down those trees though so we can see the Poly better

I miss you, Wilderness Lodge!



This was my view every morning - sitting on the balcony, waiting for my friends to get ready, sipping my coffee... sigh.

I must confess, that one was taken with my boyfriends camera, not my 7d. Its pretty funny that the lesser camera took one of the prettiest pictures


That is near the geyser looking towards the boat dock. I think my boyfriend actually took it from one of the lower rails on the pathway. 3623 was in the same area, just pointed down at the water. I really liked 3624 because at first glance I didn't place it either. It looked like a cabin to me!


The photo I still have trouble placing is 3038. I have no clue what angle he took that one from, and I would swear it wasn't from the top of the Wilderness. Yet, it was taken the same day and grouped with pictures from the top. We photos numbered before and after it from the roof, so I would assume it had to be a roof pic. But, to me, it looks like it was taken from a spot a bit to the left of the MK entrance.


Hopefully, one of these days I will have time to sort through our other pictures from the trip- the lodge is just soo beautiful and I know we have a ton of other shots that somewhat do it justice It was really a photographer's dream staying there. So many small, intricate details against a stunning backdrop...


I also love seeing how others picked nearly the same framing for shots as we did. I really like how Cosmos has some shots that are nearly identical to ours. If more than one person found it picture-worthy, then we must have good taste, right??

Wow!!! All these pics are amazing! Getting geared up for our first stay at VWL in May. Was wondering if anyone has any pictures of the 2 bedroom villas?
