On the 1st day of Christmas, Walt Disney gave to me.... A room at the Wilderness Lodge! Yes, the McSparklesons are back and we brought Daddy this trip! I will countdown all 12 days of Christmas at WDW (even though we only stayed 3 days!) with tons of pics and dining reviews too! Here we are in all our glory.... Me and Ally, 8 year old daughter.... Daddy (Jeff) and Ally So stay tuned for MY 12 days of Christmas version...... (first I need to go finish my last TR from September!!!). So back to the song.... On the 1st day of Christmas, Walt Disney gave to me.... A room at the Wilderness Lodge. We booked a room in the villas and if you've read any of my other TRs, you'll know that I tend to get, um, FREE upgrades quite a bit. Might be my charming personality, or just plain dumb luck (I like to think it's the personality thing!), but I always book the el cheapo room, and end up with something other than a parking lot view. This time was no exception. I was expecting a lovely view of the bus stop, but instead got this! Hey, it's not fireworks view at Magic Kingdom, but it beats looking out at the minivans from Nebraska!!!! Plenty of room in our studio, and I was so mad I forgot we were in a villa or I could have packed some breakfast items, since we had a fridge and microwave. I have always liked Wilderness Lodge and really wanted to stay here during Christmas. I got my wish! It was very warm and welcoming. I loved the proximity to MK by boat, but otherwise, we had some issues with transportation. I'll go into that a bit later. Stay tuned!
