I'm new to DIS, so I apologize if this thread has been done before. However, I thought it would be interesting to discuss the resort that was picked for your first WDW trip. I made my first trip in July 2011 and chose Wilderness Lodge. Initially, I was going to chose AKL. However, my boyfriend insisted on going to WL instead. After some resistance I decided to take the plunge. I'm so glad I made that decision. I was literally speechless after walking into the lobby. The pictures didn't do it enough justice. Once I was able to collect my thoughts, I was left speechless again with the room. I was assigned a courtyard view room on the fourth floor. I had a great view of Bay Lake and the erupting geyser. Needless to say, this will be a resort that I will keep in mind for future visits.
