  • Overall Impression: This has always been one of my favorite resorts and even though we stayed in the very last room on the hallway (we termed it the Shining Hallway) and the view was the laundry services, we enjoyed our stay.

  • Overall Impression: Used online check in, went straight to room. Room is Dark, needs brighter mirrors. I removed the lamp shades to make the room brighter. Geyser point was outstanding, we had a great Thanksgiving dinner. Love the boat options, bus waits averaged 5-10 mins

  • Overall Impression: I’d give it a B. Beautiful grounds, great dining, close proximity to MK. Geyser Point and Storybook are worth making the trip there. Service was decent, no one stood out to me as spectacular at check in or around the resort. But the treats from the Ganachery were admittedly a nice touch.

  • Overall Impression: We love this resort. (We own DVC here) We like the theming, the restaurants, the transportation. We like that you feel like you can leave the theme parks behind after a day of going full force in the parks. It feels restorative, but you still have proximity to Magic Kingdom. It appeals to everyone in our family from age 6 to age 70. Its not so formal that the kids feel uncomfortable, and its not so cartoony that the grandparents feel like they are tagging along on a kids' vacation. There is just the right amount of Disney whimsey.

  • Overall Impression: I will stay here again especially BR side AFTER a refurb. Bucket list those amazing cabins. That will be an anniversary trip in the future because they were breathtaking!! Peaceful and beautiful with wildlife (we saw armadillos right outside the cabins) and something for everyone this resort was truly a place of respite from the craziness of the parks.

  • Overall Impression: My overall impression of Boulder Ridge Villas at The Wilderness Lodge is very positive. We are DVC members but this is not our home resort. We enjoy this resort a lot. I find it very relaxing and the scenery is beautiful. It transports you to somewhere in the woods! I find it very peaceful and it doesn't feel like Florida to me anymore. Since I live in Florida, this is a positive thing for me. The rooms are beautiful and I enjoyed sitting out on my balcony with my coffee in the morning looking at the at the lake. I'm looking forward to trying the "new" Artist Point in April, because the original restaurant was one of my favorites. The dining at this resort is not my favorite, but maybe this will change after I try Artist Point in April. I definitely plan on staying her again.

  • Overall Impression: Overall, aside from having the microwave and kitchen area, I think we preferred the standard room with a pool view from last summer. HOWEVER, the Boulder Ridge option was great as it was so close to the buses.

  • Overall Impression: This was my favorite of the 2 resorts we stayed at. It was nice, room was clean, nice restaurants and staff. It was very peaceful. I will say this about the DVC resorts is they are way quieter than the values we use to stay at.

  • Overall Impression: I wanted to stay here for nostalgic reasons and it didn't disappoint. Everything was as beautiful and exactly as I remember. When you first walk in, you are greeted with a beautiful and rustic lobby/ common area. The fireplaces and the rockers really make you feel like you are in your own mansion in the woods. However, the room was too much like I remember it being when I was a kid. Everything from the outdated tile in the shower, or the old red couch, to the scratched up headboard, just screamed, I'm tired. It was a real bummer. The view was also bad because I was lucky enough to be overlooking a backstage laundry area. That being said, wilderness as a whole is still a great resort. Busses are easy to get to as well as the water taxi. I would love to stay here again, just after they update the rooms.

  • Overall Impression: Needs to be renovated. Cleaning needs improvement, I expect a clean room when I arrive. Furniture was mismatched and plugs on the end tables didn’t work as there was no place to plug the end table in to. Still a nice place, rustic appeal, resort, pools and dining are top notch.
