This started a debate between my wife and I. I thought Trails End, since we love to eat there and considered it to be a real find during our first trip. My wife said WCC for the atmosphere and the fact it is table service rather than buffet. If you get the ADR so wait time isn't a concern and are already at the WL, there isn't much reason to not go with WCC, unless you prefer to obtain your ketchup quietly...

Either way you'll get a nice "comfort food" meal. Enjoy!

We were looking for places we hadn't tried and read a couple of reviews..decided to give it a try. We really enjoyed and were pleasantly surprised with Trails End! It is now on our list every trip

I can't wait to hear your report on CL. We are doing CL at WL for the first time in February and I am already counting my sleeps. Only 196 to go!

Have a great trip!

I will happily post a report and photos! It's our first time staying CL so I won't have anything to compare it to which I think is a good thing

Hi everyone! DH and I are long time Wilderness Lodge people. I was so excited when I discovered WDWKOOK's previous WL thread. It's like having a little piece of WL that I can visit every day It has taken a few weeks, but I read all of the old WL thread and then moved over to this thread. Thank you WDWKOOK for keeping this going!

13 days until our next visit to WL Can't wait to see the renovated rooms!

Welcome, you're going to love Wilderness Lodge. It's my favorite & DH & I will be staying almost the same time frame as you & family. We're at the Villas @ Wilderness Lodge from 11/23 to 12/8. We've made our ADR's as well & also planned for days just relaxing at the resort too.

Love the pics of the Honeymoon Suite. I'm so jealous!

Please add us to the Lodger's Log, Nov. 3-11, 2012. We are booked in a Woods View bunk bed room at the moment (but we keep going back and forth with the CL idea). This will be our first trip to WDW as a family, my son's 1st trip to WDW, and our 5th wedding anniversary. 83 more days and counting

Don't forget to book that 14th trip soon
DS has a half day on Fri 11/2 (end of 1st MP) and off Election Day - 11/6, so he will miss Fri, Mon and Wed of school. I know it's a lot but he is a good student and we'll see how it goes. The good thing is I'm a teacher at his middle school so I'm hoping that will help with communication of what he'll be missing and make up work. He should be able to complete some work in the afternoons waiting for me to finish up working...

I was updating my planning spreadsheet today and looking a reservations that I made months ago, of course second guessing everything! DH saw me and said "I'm really looking forward to this trip, especially since we are staying at WL again!!"

It is SO exciting to see the updates from those of you who are at our beloved WL, those who are on their way (safe travels) and those who have just a few sleepless nights left till you arrive 'home.'

Happy days to all!!!!
