7 in 7: Seven Disney World Resorts in Seven Days

 

Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Overview

In November of 2000, Disney added the Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge to the Resort's offering. The name was changed to Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge in 2016. 

The villas are part of the Disney Vacation Club or DVC (as it is known).  Disney Vacation Club is, essentially, Disney’s version of a timeshare.  Instead of purchasing a particular ‘week’ (as is customary with many timeshares), you purchase points.  Points can then be used at any of Disney’s vacation club properties.  The number of points needed for a particular stay depends on the type of room (studio, one bedroom, two bedroom, etc) and the time of year. 



The villas side of the resort comes with its own separate common area that exudes a rustic charm that invites you to sit, relax and read a good book. The three story high central rotunda provides comfortable seating and a cozy fireplace while continuing the theming of the resort's main lobby. Animals carved into log-like “bearing beams” overhead and a large, decorative birdcage help complete the look.







A particularly inviting area of the villas lies in a room adjacent to the rotunda, the Carolwood Pacific Room. This room holds a bit of Disney history as it showcases a few collector pieces related to Walt Disney’s penchant for steam trains. On select days, small presentations are given in the Carolwood Pacific Room by a knowledgeable Cast Member who will share some of the stories pertaining to the items. Also, in this area more seating and a few tables can be found as well as a couple of checkers game sets for a bit of quiet enjoyment.



Rustic charm is what appeals to guests who stay at the Lodge. The décor of each room is composed of wood-carved furniture, earth tones and accents of woodland creatures. Bambi references are sprinkled throughout the villa. Hardwood floors set the scene in the common areas with carpet in the bedrooms. Glass-paned doors lead to a patio or balcony in each room.
