If you are trying to find a perfect hotel for your Walt Disney World vacation during the holiday season, then you have to consider Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. In fact, after reading this list of reasons why we think this hotel is perfect for the holiday season, you may want to stay at no other hotel but Wilderness Lodge!
Reason #1: Christmas Tree
There are a lot of beautiful Christmas trees throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. But perhaps the most beautiful Christmas tree is at the Wilderness Lodge.
It is a 60-foot beauty of a tree and the decorations are beautiful and perfect for the resort. And the Christmas tree fits in so well with the resort.
There is so much attention to detail with the Christmas tree, too. The ornaments perfectly fit the Wilderness Lodge.
Reason #2: Other Christmas Decorations
And while the Christmas tree in the lobby is the highlight of their Christmas decorations, there are also other great Christmas decorations up throughout the resort.
There are other smaller Christmas trees.
I also really like the wreaths.
I love all the decor on the wreaths are very rustic and completely in theme with the hotel itself.
Reason #3: Winter Atmosphere
Part of the reason why the Christmas tree and other decorations fit in so well at the Wilderness Lodge is that the hotel has the perfect atmosphere for Christmas decorations. While a lot of the hotels at Disney World like Old Key West or the Caribbean Resort have more of a summer feel, the Wilderness Lodge feels like a place you would visit during the winter. For me, that winter feeling puts me in that Christmas spirit.
They even have a fireplace in the lobby.
How great is it to sit on a rocking chair or comfortable couch in the lobby and enjoy the fireplace? How Christmas is that?
Reason #4: Christmas Music
Adding to that Christmas atmosphere is the great Christmas music they play at the Wilderness Lodge during the holiday season. It really gets you in the mood for Christmas!
Reason #5: A Boat Ride from Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom is so gorgeous during the holiday season. The castle is beautifully decorated. And there are beautiful decorations throughout Magic Kingdom.
And then there is Magic Kingdom’s special after-hours holiday event, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It has a Christmas parade, special Christmas decorations, live Christmas entertainment, and more. You can read more about it in our Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
