    As with the Grand Floridian pictures, I have "all the usual" pictures posted previously. This cluster represent new views....

    ADDED MORE PICTURES FROM JUNE, 2007 starting on page 4

    Part #1 - the Lobby

    Calming, soothing... I'll be waiting right here

    Pretty inside, pretty outside - this camera sees what the eye sees...

    Quality, details, theming... Disney ....

    Odd - multi-textured - but I like it..... reflections into the headress display case

    Relax - set a spell - listen to the best durn hotel sound track ever....

    Entrance to Territory Lounge - not a great photo, but real sense of "being there"

    [​IMG]






    View from Territory Lounge (sort of) - one of my all time favorite shots - I don't know the people, but having a picture on my cube wall really makes me feel like I am looking out the window - at a family enjoying a bunny rabbit...

    WLV Lobby Fireplace

    [​IMG]






    Another favorite - a view from the room - another visual cue to remember what it is like to look out of the window, and feel like I am there!

    Great pictures, thinking of staying at WL next time, those pictures don't do anything to discourage that.

    Thanks so much for sharing. There's such a warm feeling there. We can't afford to stay there, but we visit for meals and shopping in the Mercantile. I have the small statue of the Humphrey/Mickey, etc. totem pole at home, and every time I walk by it, it makes me think of that very warm, wonderful Wilderness Lodge. I am looking forward to seeing it in Christmas decor for the first time this year. That will just be even more wonderful!

    Loved seeing these pictures! We are booked here for our upcoming stay in September! Since this was the DH's favorite resort, this is where he wanted to stay, but I would love to stay at the BC/YC, but seeing this pictures, has put me in a different mood! Good job!

    The WL is hands down the best themed Disney resort!

    I put my Wilderness Lodge soundtrack on while I viewed these photos, I almost felt like I was there! Thanks!

    Have stayed at every resort except the CR. They all have their charms and amenities. WL is my favorite, by a small edge over BCV (pool) or BWI (location, exercise equipment, pool slide, walk to EP and MGM, etc.) for reasons that I had documented and was once able to find and link to on these threads..... don't know what happened to it!

    Have you ever considered renting DVC points? In low season, a studio might net out to price of a moderate - or possibly even a value - resort. There is a thread on this site to read up on it. You can always try it for a night or two to keep the risk low and experiment..... Just a thought!

    Tough choices - so many reasons to return - or split your stay.

    I take the pictures for my own entertainment (from years of limited sharing of film photos) - but I POST them for every one else's enjoyment. Thanks for the encouragement. I wish the search engine worked - I used it all the time to find my own threads to check for questions (usually "What kind of camera do you have?"). How do you even find them? Happenstance?

    I got the playlist from allearsnet.com - then my son made a CD for me - which I listen to all the time!! For some odd reason, it didn't seem to be playing when we were there for dinner at Artist's Point Jan 10th! Probably just an oddity.

    Here's a kick - I actually found one of my old threads. It contains a SCANNED photo of the WLV bed (talk about picture noise - great gray grit!!). Well, I took a different job shortly after and haven't had time to write a report since!!
