Winter Wilderness Wonderland

There are only TWO days until Christmas, and NINE days until I'll be heading down to Disney World to ring in the New Year!

To pass the time before these exciting events, I'm going to share some more photos of some lovely Disney holiday decorations!!

Today we're going to explore the winter wonderland at the Wilderness Lodge!  Don't you love that great big wreath gracing the portico?

This is one pretty place.

And one incredible tree!

As usual with Disney Decorating, the ornaments are perfectly themed and thoughtfully chosen.  Sprays of prairie grasses and red berries are bursting out of pretty saddlebags.


Look closely and you'll find little canoes and acorns sprinkled in between green branches and bright red poinsettias.

...and maybe a few cute birch bears too!

Of course the most famous bears at the Wilderness Lodge are the ones by the bridge!

The bridge itself looks pretty lovely too!

The Wilderness Lodge lends itself perfectly to the festive decor.

The plaid ribbons are so woodsy and so charming.

And where else will you find a MOOSE ANTLER garnishing a wreath??  I mean. really.  That's just decorating genius.

Each little world within the Wilderness Lodge has its own pretty touches like that.  Above is a peek at the Mercantile...

Here are the brightly red poinsettia swags decorating the walkway down to the buses.

A great big wreath on the Grand-Canyon-strata fireplace...

More loveliness in the lobby atrium.  How about we take a peek up on that fifth floor too, on the club level, to see the decorations on the Old Faithful Club level??

That personable brown bear is there all year - his name is Humphrey.

There are moose-antler wreathes up here too!

It's pretty cool to get an aerial view of all the decor!

Those lighted deer above the lobby entrance are so sweet.

One last photo...this one is my favorite!
