Mobile Wilderness Lodge At Christmas

Never been here at Christmas before. One night 2 weeks ago, we got the boat over from BLT to check out the Christmas vibe.

Well, I thought it was wonderful, the decorations and overall Christmas atmosphere was fantastic.

I know the transportation from there is not that great, and the Boulder Ridge rooms need a refurb, but definitely think Ill book it for our Christmas trip this year.

I also forgot how nicely the resort is lit on a night, nice and dark and atmospheric (Mrs YT thinks a little too subdued lighting but I disagree) which sets off the decorations even more.

Anyone else stayed at Christmas and what did you think?

We stayed in 2002 before we were DVC members. Our children were 8 and 6 and it was so magical. Its our youngest sons favourite resort. If I went at Christmas again I would definitely stay there if I could.

We stayed there for Christmas a few years ago. The tree in the lobby looked amazing and Santa was there on Christmas Eve.

Not at Christmas, but yes we have stayed.

In my opinion, the best delux hotel by a mile, so relaxed and a magical setting with nature at hand yet a short boat to the hussle and bussle of MK and monorail loop.

Copper Creek is stunning and these units are far superior to the units at the Poly on the lake notwithstanding the view.

Geyser Point by the lake is in the most magical position, with great service, cocktails and excellent food...the Bison Burger and crab cake sandwich ..oh my., better than fine dining in terms of value for money.

Love to read your honest critics and look forward to this one. Enjoy

I really really liked the look of Geyser point- the new additions there were done incredibly well. The food looks excellent there too.
If I buy any more points it could well be at Copper Creek I suspect after my stay.
Alas I will be very unlikely to book Copper Creek even in the 1 bed at 7 months at Xmas but I will get Boulder Ridge. Boulder Ridge has better space but needs a refurb. Then it will be done like the new SSR rooms and preferable to Copper Creek in many ways. Would not buy Boulder Ridge though due to end date. I do love the DVC building there.
Edit- they should really put a Geyser Point copy but made for New York theme type place in SSR- Ive said this for a while.
