Wilderness Lodge. Can't beat the huge tree in the lobby...ALK/Jambo has one too...but the woodsy scenery edges everyone out.

I agree with most of the others. I think the Wilderness Lodge is made for Christmas. As soon as you step into the lobby you feel like you are in a ski lodge, deep in the woods with snow on the ground and in the air.

I love the Christmas music they play as well. Very subdued and appropriate for the surroundings. I visit WDW each December for a work conference and my first stop is always the WL to get me in the Christmas spirit!

Another WL vote

Agree with Wilderness Lodge!!!

I do love the Grand Floridian too. I walk around in awe of the splendor of it all with the live piano and small orchestra, lovely tree, and the amazing gingerbread house. It is such a victorian beauty, and festive too!!!

But...with Wilderness Lodge...it's that whole woodsy lodge thing. You can find warm cozy fireplace with all the heavy log structure decorated in red and green. I love to find a cozy spot and curl up for what seems like hours (you half expect to see snow out the windows and feel so safe and warm). It truly warms my heart, and all seems right with the world!!!!
