Have a picture on that bridge too. From 2011. Love Wilderness Lodge. But I wish it was on the monorail line.
Love that bridge and really live it all decorated! We have a picture on that bridge - mmddgp  471.1 #15 8:30PM

Yes you are so right about that - Pooh147856  214.1 #37 8:24PM
Yes I agree. My bf and I were just saying that when we were there...it would be great if it was..not sure how they would do that - mickeynme  166.4 #48 8:30PM
At this point, I would rather the wilderness lodge be on the monorail line instead of the polynesian...I've lost my love for the polynesian now:( darn lobby changes lol - mickeynme  166.4 #48 8:32PM

I'll probably soften up within the next 2 years. Haha. It will be time for my 17 year old granddaughter and I to have our "just us" trip.
We just came back from being there Dec 13 - 17. Although it was crowded at times it is to be expected at this time of year so you have to be prepared with patience. We stayed at Port Orleans Riverside and they were just so acomodating. My daughter became Very ill the night before we were to come home and our flight was very late at night. They allowed us the use of a room after check out time until we were to board the Magical Express for free. I could not thank them enough for their concern. Sorry you trip was not as Magical. - Pooh147856  214.1 #37 3:54PM
Sorry to hear your daughter was ill - hope she's fully recovered. Shame we weren't able to meet up - next year?? - rink2  97.1 #65 12:54AM
Sorry your trip was dissappointing. We were there from the 7th - 20th and yes it was very crowded. We started off at pop for 2 nights - it was crowded but friendly and festive. The room looked a little tired but was great for sleeping in ! We moved to SS which was quiet and relaxing at first but got busier which seemed to take the staff a bit by suprise! The parks were frantic at times but ok at others, I found I was able to change my FP on the day although not for TSM and mine train. I have accepted that planning is now a necessity and I miss the spontaneity of our 'first bus' trips. The main change I have seen over the years is in the attitude of people - some cast members seem indifferent to the fact they are working in a customer service environment - only a small number - and some holidaymakers are just downright miserable. I saw so many people who were just so oblivious to their surroundings, kids weren't able to see parades and no- one offered to move. We had an amazing spot for the Christmas parade and suggested some nearby families join us so the kids could see - they were so delighted and sadly surprised I love WDW and I doubt anything would stop me enjoying my holiday but I guess it's going to get busier and as my grandad used to say ' you either like it or lump it' - rink2  97.1 #65 12:52AM

Kinda reminds me of Wilderness Lodge and Animal Kingdom lobbies. Very pretty but just so different than it was. and not unique any more. I'm sure almost everyone has a picture sitting at the waterfall & foliage.
Is it just me, I think it seems similar to other lobbys and it was much better being unique. - DizneyGirl  670.7 #7 11:22AM
Yes it was. They should maybe add some waterfalls somewhere or add some personality to it...it's a little plain....walking into it is like ehhh that's it? Lol - mickeynme  166.4 #48 12:33PM
Lol really plain. Don't look like a, Polynesian resort. πŸ˜• - islandgirl58  289.6 #21 11:26AM
No it doesn't :( I was disappointed lol - mickeynme  166.4 #48 12:33PM

Love the floor it looks like my "Disney wall" kinda rustic! I have never stayed there but when I visited I enjoyed the tropical feel and this just doesn't emulate that feel - mmddgp  471.1 #15 6:38PM

I remember the way it was before the hat and I will be glad when it is gone!!
Get that thing out. Of. My. Park. Jan 5th cannot get here quick enough. Thankfully nothing is going in its place. - IndyandMarion  1265.4 #1 7:08PM
U really don't like the hat do u indy.....? LolπŸ˜€ - mickeynme  166.4 #48 8:27PM
No. Not at all. It was a pointless edition that added no value to the area. It destroys an absolutely beautiful scene. Not to mention it looks beyond stunning and even more so during the holidays when the Christmas tree was in the planter at the end of Hollywood. I won't even go into the Mickey it destroyed. All this thing is, is a glorified gift shop with items that can be found at Mickey's of Hollywood or any other pin station. It's saddened me to think that there is an entire generation that has known nothing but the hat being there. I truly can't begin to tell any of you how exciting it'll be to finally have the original opening day park back, with the one change being the addition of Sunset. - IndyandMarion  1265.4 #1 1:00AM
πŸ‘‹ bye bye hat! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  935.1 #3 4:01PM
Nooooooo....lol...what's going in its place and when?? Lol - mickeynme  166.4 #48 4:19PM
If I remember correctly, the hat goes away in Jan and there's no word on anything replacing it. Hopefully GMR will regain its status as HS's (or whatever they will be calling it) icon! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  935.1 #3 4:24PM
Even if i like the hat,,, it would be nice to see th Grauman's Chinese Theater as the icon of DHS! - otilegna  1842.7 #71 4:39PM
Great picture. I do like the hat in its larger than life grandure. I wish there was a way to just move it to it's own spot. I do miss walking in studios and seeing the theater first thing. EnjoyπŸŽ…πŸŽ„ - mmddgp  471.1 #15 7:22PM

He is so cute. I love him too! I'm sorry you didn't get him but you got some really great photo shots with your kids, family and characters. I know you had an amazing dayπŸŽ…. Thanks for sharing😘 - mmddgp  471.1 #15 7:01AM
