Guest Review: Holiday Drinks at Trout Pass Pool Bar in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Today, we’re sharing with you some fun holiday drinks that DFB reader Chelsea B. enjoyed recently during a visit to Trout Pass Pool Bar in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort. (Editor’s Note: Trout Pass Pool Bar has closed since this post was originally published. Guests can now visit the new pool bar at Wilderness Lodge, Geyser Point Bar & Grill). 

If you haven’t had the pleasure of hanging out at Trout Pass Pool Bar, I suggest you remedy that in the near future!
