PHOTOS, VIDEOS: Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Celebrates Christmas in the Pacific Northwest With a Grand Lobby Tree and Carved Critter Decorations
Now that the holiday decorations in the parks are complete, it’s on to the resorts! The latest resort to receive the Christmas treatment was the Wilderness Lodge. Holiday preparations started last week when a surprise gingerbread log cabin appeared in the lobby. The remaining Christmas decor was put into place yesterday, with the reveal of the full decorations happening today.
The massive Christmas tree stands in the center of the lobby. The tree’s decorations, with Native American and nature influences, play upon the rustic theme of Wilderness Lodge.
Lit tipis are nestled into the tree’s branches.
Moose antlers are also featured throughout the tree.
