A Rustic Christmas at the Disney Wilderness Lodge Resort
Each of the Disney World Deluxe Resorts offer something unique during the Holiday Season that makes them stand out among the rest of the Disney Properties. So what is it about the Disney Wilderness Lodge Christmas Decorations that you will not forget? There are, in fact, a few things that will bond to your memory after you visit this Rustic favorite at Disney World.
Massive Decorations and an Impressive Tree
Get warm by the fire
Christmas window shopping
One of my favorite places
I love the 3 bears
Beautiful Christmas tree
What a festive arrangment
Large Christmas Garland
Fabulous Christmas Tree
As you pull under the Carport Entrance, the first thing you will notice is the Giant Wreath wrapped around the Tribal Medallion. At night, these decorations are lit for you to enjoy the warmth of the season as you enter and leave the main building. Along the porch edges, you will also see large garland attached that is full of Christmas Seasonal Lights after dark. If you have ever been to the Wilderness Lodge Lobby before, you already know how large and impressive this room is. Now, picture in your mind this same rustic setting with the largest indoor Decorated Christmas Tree, erected right in the middle of the room. Would you believe that this tree stands nearly a full 60 feet tall? Even at that height, it still does not come close to touching the ceiling of this large hall. Other features you will see around the room are lighted garland hanging from the railings and plenty of Christmas Wreaths. At the back of the Lobby, there is a bridge that spans a stream coming from a bubbling fountain that feeds the Silver Springs Pool at the Wilderness Lodge Resort. The Bridge is a beautiful addition to the room and is a great place to get that much-needed Family Photo for the trip.
The Fireplace at Christmas
A Fireplace in Florida, that seems to be out of place, right? Not really. The fireplace adds to the Wilderness charm and appeal of the Wilderness Resort but during the Christmas Season, it adds that extra special feeling of roasting chestnuts on an open fire. Guests love sitting peacefully in the seating around the fire because it is such a comfortable place to be. This is also a great place to strike up a conversation with others visiting the Disney Wilderness Lodge.
The Three Bears Display
Protecting the cubs
I love the 3 bears
Hold on tight
Great photo op
While most of the Disney World Deluxe Resorts have a Gingerbread Display, the Disney Wilderness Lodge has something a little different. In the lobby, near the bridge in the back, you will find a display of 3 wicker bears in a fun and unique display. Kids love to see the bear clutching to the tree and this is a great spot for that one of a kind Christmas photo.
Disney Store at the Wilderness Lodge
I want to take Minnie home
Great Christmas decorations
Everything changes at Christmas and taking a piece of Disney Christmas home with you is a fun event for the family. Visit the Disney Store located off of the lobby of the Disney Wilderness Lodge and pick out something to remember your trip by. One of a kind Christmas ornaments, apparel, and great Christmas decorations are located all around the store.
You will find that many people find that the Wilderness Resort in Disney World is the most comfortable, well-decorated place in the area at Christmas time. There are many other resorts to consider but this is one you should keep on your list as one to check out next time you are in Orlando Fl during the Holiday season.
