New amenities will soon be available at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Boulder Ridge Cove of Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is scheduled to open in summer 2017. The re-themed pool area will feature an expanded sun deck and zero-depth-entry pool as well as a nearby “Boulder Ridge Railway and Mining Co.” water tower. A vintage mine cart will also support the mining theme with an affectionate nod to Disney history.

The area formerly known as Hidden Springs Pool will appear to have been an abandoned rock quarry and supports the pioneering backstory of Boulder Ridge. Locals in the Pacific Northwest re-purposed everything from bridges and tunnels to cranes and quarries after the fading of the Transcontinental Railroad in mid-20th-century.


Beyond the new pool space, scheduled enhancements to the resort include a brand-new bar & grill, in addition to a quick-service restaurant. Geyser Point Bar & Grill will be located in the heart of the feature pool area of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, where Members and guests can grab a bite to eat as they lounge by the resort’s main pool. There will be ample outdoor seating and architecture that looks right at home with that of the existing Lodge, as well as Boulder Ridge Villas.

The Disney Vacation Club portion of Wilderness Lodge has been undergoing an extensive refurbishment and expansion. It was recently renamed Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge in order to more accurately reflect the new railroad theme and compliment the story line of the resort.
