Life has been a bit hectic the past few months. We rarely get offered overtime in my job so when we did I took full advantage. The overtime ended yesterday and I suddenly realized I am moving to a new house on 11/1 and going to WDW and the WL on 11/11.

Lots and lots of stress with the moving, but getting to walk into the Lodge in just about a month is going to make the whole world right again.

I agree. We are considering a short trip over New Years next year since this year didn't pan out and I wish Disney would offer some kind of RO discount after Christmas. It doesn't have to be anything big, but something would be nice to offset the extremely high holiday rates .

Kook, would be happy to update you tonight's buffet. We'll be dining with Cinderella and the Prince, Lady Tremaine and the step-sisters. I hear they're great fun for the adults, too.

Congratulations! We were in 6093 and 6094, at the front end of the hall above the registration desk. Don't you just love that lobby view every time you step outside? Have a wonderful trip and we will be following along!

Thank you! We are super excited, the house is bigger and we are going to be able to have two christmas trees this year. That means one whole christmas tree dedicated to our WDW ornaments. How fun!

We recently took a trip to Wilderness Lodge at the beginning of September and while I was posting my trip report, several people commented that they don't see many photos for the DVC villas, so I thought I would share

We had room number 3524



Photos of the room before we made a huge mess.

Foyer





Living Room





After I turned the flash on – oops.







Eating area



Kitchen









continued in next post

More room photos

Master Bedroom









Closet – washer and dryer in there



Bathroom











Wall Art I liked





Stacey was on - YAY !!



Our room was basically right around the corner from the elevator. Which is a good thing if you can’t walk very far. But it isn’t a good thing if you are a light sleeper. Because the elevator dings every time the door opens and closes. This begins happening around 5:30 AM and continues pretty much all day and most of the night until midnight. I tried to ignore and not let it bother me, but next time I might ask for another room.

Master Bedroom Balcony



Living Room Balcony



We spent very little time out there, so it wasn’t a big deal. But perhaps, if we had a better view, we would have spent more time out there.

We all got dressed and went to check out the resort.





The Villas lobby













Fireplace



More lobby







The Villas outside



The Hidden Springs Pool



This pool had these giant jets on the bottom that created these huge bubblers throughout the pool. There were about four or five of them. It was really cool.





The beach where they showed movies every night.



We headed towards the main pool.

We are going on the Pirate cruise the day after we arrive for Wishes. Everything is going to be a surprise. I think that is part of the magic.

I love reading this thread. Thanks for all the great info!
What an awesome surprise for your children!

Have fun.....anything Disney is great, but I especially love Disney Christmas trees . Mine is all Mickey, along with all the other decorations throughout my house. For me there's no such thing as too much Mickey/Disney .
