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.

My Christmas tree at home is decorated similar to this, inspired by the WL trees. I’ll be visiting the resort along with Ft W next month. Especially interested in the new gingerbread house.

Going down today to join my family already down there at Bay Lake Tower. Checking in later today at Copper Creek cabin!!!! for 3 whole nights. Can not wait! We have always loved Wilderness Lodge, especially at Thanksgiving/Christmas. we celebrate Thanksgiving at Disney every year (at least last 12 years) and usually eat at Whispering canyon. This year we are going to Liberty Tree instead as we are celebrating Wednesday so some of our party can head back home Thursday. New traditions with old!
