    This is a great thread! We loved WL when we stayed there last year. We're hoping to stay there again Dec 09!

    Here are my pictures;

    Fun fact about the Bear Face Rooms and DizneyNuts and Goinagain photo's from Christmas shows the new twist.

    The Cast Members arranged the garland (that is only used at Christmas) on the outside balcony on the 4th floor to give the Bear Face teeth.

    Hope you can all see them...

    For those that are new to the Lodge I'm posting this information from my post over on the Wilderness Lodge FAQ Thread.

    Another piece of trivia from the Vets of Wilderness Lodge.


    The Courtyard View rooms that are just off the Lobby are called the "Bear Face Rooms" because of a pattern (WARNING: Imagination is required to see The Bear) that forms the face of a bear, when approching or viewing the Lodge from Bay Lake.

    In the photo below look toward the center of the roof just under the Flags. The two small triangular shape windows at the top of the building begins our short flight of fantasy. Now I think these two small windows are the eyes with the large gable forming the nose with the large balcony under the gable forming the mouth. Others see the the top two triangular windows as the ears with the two rectangular windows located to each side of the gable to be the eyes. Either way once you see the face you will be able to see the Bear each time you see the photo or the real deal.

    I love your photo's and would love to use a few of them over on the Wilderness Lodge FAQ Thread, I would give you credit. I do understand if you rather I didn't use them you can either post here or PM me with your answer.

    Either way thanks for posting the beautiful photos.

    OK OK Now I am really interested in WL! Our next WDW is next year(June 2009). I was thinking about value because my DS wanted to spend one day at Universal so I thought OK then maybe we should stay value(ASMusic). We do stay about 8 days on a WDW trip. But I am not too excited about Universal so maybe to make up for it we will stay at WL so I know after a long day at Universal I can have the evening to relax at WL. Is that a good excuse to go deluxe?:thumbsup2 :goodvibes

    Your pictures are fantastic!! On the night and inside shots what settings are you using? I'm still struggling to find that right setting with my newer camera (the ones I posted were with an older one).

    Take Care
