Thanks for the photos. You got some great ones. I have a few from one of our previous trips that I'll post soon.

Wouldn't the sugars from the ice cream be better used early in the day instead of late in the evening?

Thank you kindly.

Loribell, I took that shot many years ago with my old 5MP digital Sony 717...one of the few cooler nights at Disney where you don't mind walking around with a tripod taking scenic shots!

That was a great shot of the water falls. I like the angle.

I thought we were the only ones who dragged around tripods at VWL and various other Disney locations! We just broke down and got a sturdier one. We bought a new camera a few years back that is way too heavy for our old one. I hate it when the picture blurrs! We will be at OKW this Sept and hope to get some night shots there. Low light pictures, our favorite.

Thank you.

I definitely like to bring the tripod around the resorts and into the parks too - but I pick a day or two to do it - don't want to carry it around all the time! But I agree - low light pictures are awesome, and Disney is an especially scenic place to take them.

It's easier in the winter when it's cooler to carry around the full camera bag and tripod - this past trip last week, I mostly left the tripod in the room because it was just too hot and muggy to carry it around - I didn't do many night shots either. But December and January, I take tons of night shots!

Also...sometimes I rent a locker and put the tripod in it with my bag - if I know I'll be at parks all day but don't want to carry around all the kit. I can take handhelds and snaps during the day, ride the rides, and enjoy...then at night, go to the locker, pull out the tripod and the low light lens, and do some night shots.

That is a good idea renting the locker. I think we might do that in Jan when we stay at VWL. We love to stay up really late while at the lodge and take pictures when there is no body around, same for the parks. So peaceful.....Thanks for the tip!

Since my first picture worked, here's another one. This is a TV viewing area in the lobby.

This one is of some writing tables on the second floor (I think)

I am a DISboards newbie and know this is a little off subject but couldn't help but echo the praise on your fantastic castle shot - wow, very cool!

My family and I will be there in December '08 as well - YIPPEE!

Wilderness Lodge is by far my favorite Disney Resort!

Here is MY photo from December 2007, right exactly IN FRONT of the castle for the best photo of the trip, I could not believe how well this turned out!



And to believe that in December 2008, my son & I will be able to leave the fireworks show & take a boat back to Wilderness Lodge for the very first time ever is soooooooo EXCITING !!! Yippee!!!!!

Yes, we were chosen to be flag family. It's such a special honor. To think that only 365 families a year are able to participate. I feel like I belong to a very elite club. Here are a couple of pictures from the rooftop.

Great pics! How were you chosen? Did you ask ahead of time for this? My kids would love this.
