Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Christmas Tree & Decor, Epcot Germany Biergarten Christmas Show, Italy Tutto Italia Gingerbread Display, Candlelight w/Chita Rivera, Illuminations Holiday Tag w/Bonus – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort looks beautiful as always for Christmas, with it’s lobby tree (below, left) and decorations which include deer over the entrance (below, right). We find the experience especially festive at night.

 

Garland hangs on the lobby bridge (below, left) and over the railings on each floor. A wreath enhances the main fireplace (below, right).

 

The beautiful Christmas tree looks elegant when backed by the pine-built lobby (below, left). Inside the Wilderness Lodge DVC Villas, a smaller tree is the centerpiece of the lobby (below, right).

Yesterday we enjoyed Oktoberfest at the Germany pavilion Biergarten (below, left and right). This is a tradition for us, each year we have lunch and see the Christmas show before getting in line for the Candlelight Processional.

 

The inside of the Biergarten is always festive (below, left). We don’t get the Candlelight Processional package so as to be able to use our Tables in Wonderland dining discount, and I used my savings to enjoy a one liter German beer (below, right).

 

We really enjoy the Biergarten Christmas show (below left and right), which features their regular songs as well as a Christmas segment. The German buffet is great plus we often meet interesting table mates (seating is at large tables for 8 guests). This year we met a former Disney cast member who had worked on animatronics and opened the then named Euro Disneyland!

 

Video #2 – Epcot’s Germany Biergarten Christmas Show Highlights 12/16/11 Walt Disney World – We enjoy dining at Epcot’s Biergarten each Christmas, here are some highlights of the special Christmas edition of the show!

Have you seen the Italy pavilions Tutto Italia (below, left) holiday display? We walked into a near-empty restaurant at the end of the night (below, right) to see it again this year.

 

The display (below, left) is made from a variety of edible items, including gingerbread, candy and chocolate. Santa (below, right) takes a moment to read his book.

 

A baker and snowman stand on a balcony (below, left), which includes a roof of cookies. Two cars make their way around a track (below, right).

 

Video #3 – Epcot Tutto Italia Christmas Gingerbread/Chocolate Holiday Display 12/16/11 Walt Disney World – Tutto Italia Restaurant at Epcot currently has this wonderful holiday display, made of gingerbread, chocolate, cookies and more! Santa appears several times.

Chita Rivera was an elegant Candlelight Processional narrator (below, left and right). The choir and orchestra is always magnificent! To see our coverage of other Candlelight Narrators please click HERE.

 

Two of our friends were in the choir on Friday night (below, left). Chita Rivera seemed to relish her time narrating, singing along with the choir during many songs (below, right).

 

Video #4 – Epcot Candlelight Processional “Rejoice With Exceeding Great Joy” 12/16/11 w/Chita Rivera, WDW – Chita Rivera narrates the Candlelight Processional at Epcot in this video, with the song “Rejoice with Exceeding Great Joy” sung by the choir.

We stayed for Illuminations: Reflections of Earth and the “Let There be Paece on Earth” fireworks finale, and got a bonus viewing of Holiday Wishes at the same time (below, left and right). The reflections off the water from Wishes were really beautiful!

 

The holiday tag of Illuminations always ends with a bang! We caught a few moments on camera from the finale (below left and right). We hope to see it a few more times this season.

 

Video #5 – Epcot Illuminations Holiday Tag plus Magic Kingdom Holiday Wishes Finale in Distance 12/16/11 – We were able to enjoy the finale of Holiday Wishes at the MK while at Epcot – here is some of Holiday Wishes along with the Illuminations Holiday Tag.
