[QUOTE=evansfmly5;963868]Great pics! Similar to the Grand Californian only BIGGER![/QUOTE]
Grand Californian, Wilderness Lodge, and Animal Kingdom Lodge all share the same architect. Actually, if you look really hard at the main lobby of the Grand Floridian, and ignore the Victorian decor, it’s almost identical to AKL.
Meanwhile, GC is supposed to be an example of Craftsman style, while WL is supposed to be the Old Faithful Inn and an example of US National Parks lodges. GC has a more finished look while WL is more rough hewn look and feel.
By the way, today is the WL’s 15th birthday (it opened on May 28, 1994)
