Disney has announced big changes and updated theming to the DVC villas area at Wilderness Lodge.  The villas are now called Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.  The area will support the railroad theming for the resort common in the Pacific Northwest.  There isn’t just a name change, though.  There are also new exciting amenities coming, too.  The Hidden Springs Pool are is being refurbished to have the feel of an abandoned rock quarry.  The changes are expected to be complete in summer of 2017 and ready for guests to enjoy.  Not only will the pool be changing, but a new bar & grill as well as a quick-service restaurant.  Geyser Point Bar & Grill will be added to the pool area to serve guests.  It will offer menu items that match the theme.  We are excited to see what the menu will be.  We will keep you posted on more announcements related to this exciting change at this beloved Walt Disney World resort.


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
