Dodie we were in the same unit just a few weeks back... I had wanted the other side of the building but I LOVED it!!! The corner room lay-out is much better IMHO than the standard layout. Kitchen does have less storage though. I'll post my pics ... uh... once I find the missing SD card

Thank you!

I just want to post a quick THANK YOU to everyone that has posted photos and info on the WL. My DH and I took the boat over there on our trip to WDW last December and we were just awed by the beauty of the place. Previously we had stayed at the Grand Floridian, POFQ, and CBR. None compares to the WL! We were a little sad that we didn't have plans to come back to Disney until my grandson's 5th birthday--3 years away.

When we recieved the free dining pin code from Disney, with December dates...well... ...we were booked before you could say "YIPPEE!!"

Now we are headed there Dec 14 (our anniversary) through our grandson's birthday (Dec. 15) and on through Dec. 20. I can! not! hardly! wait, and thanks to the good people on this board that have been so generous with their advice and info, I knew to request an "inner courtyard view, lobby" (aka "bear face") room!

Thanks so much to all! You are the best!

--Kim (aka Jack's Geema)

Had a spontaneous one night stay at the Wilderness Lodge last Friday after MNSSHP, it was amazing! We got upgraded to Conceirge on the 7th floor. Here is the view from the balcony.

I hope the OP won't mind me answering this question but I love this pic and it shows it really well. At the top middle you see the boat dock jutting out into the lake. Come down from that and you'll see a light brown more or less circular area to the right of the pool and hot tubs. That's the geyser.

So we walk through the lodge, out to the pool and go right of the pool. Little further than I thought. Thanks!!

Well, it's at the far end of the pool really, rather than to the right when you're actually there. It's hardly any distance at all. There's a walkway from the beach past the geyser to the boat dock.

OK we have been back for over a week now and i haven't posted ANY pics!! I feel horrible!!! I uploaded all my pics to my myspace page. Everyone is more than welcome to go look. And DisneyNDecember pictures do this place NO justice!!! We stayed in room 4045 and it was wonderful! Evertime I got off the elevator i kicked off my shoes and walked barefoot!!! OK anyway here is the link to my myspace, if you have any trouble please let me know!!!
( I also had to buy a lil 7.0 MP camera RIGHT before we left because my $800 canon rebel xti broke!!! I was FREAKING OUT!!! I hope these pics are good enough!)
