Disney brings the beauty of the west to WDW
Aug 24th, 2020
Boulder Ridge is a brilliant rendition and representation of National Park lodges and natural scenic areas in the western United States. As local Pacific North Westerner, my family felt right at home! Take a walk around the resort to see if you can spy the geyser, buffalo topiary, and mining themed swimming pools. Great gluten free food options can be found at the resort restaurants. The resort is taking many helpful precautions to keep guests safe during Covid 19. Boats can be taken from the resort to the Magic a Kingdom! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Boulder Ridge at Wilderness Lodge is truly the most magical resort in all of Disneyworld..
Aug 19th, 2020
Breathtaking, peaceful, relaxing are the words to explain how amazing our stay at Boulder Ridge Villas at Disneyworld's Wilderness Lodge felt to us. We decided to take a last minute trip grabbing an amazing discount. We have stayed at many of the Disneyworld resorts from All Stars to the Grand Floridian. This was our first stay at the Wilderness Lodge. We have visited the resort for dinning at the Whyspering Canyon and Artist Point always making a stop during Christmas to see it's holiday decorations. From the moment we checked in each and every Cast Member was welcoming. Very courteous with explaining all the safety measures and answering any questions. We enjoyed an amazing lunch at Geyser Point waiting for our room to be ready. We were met with our first magical moment with a room upgrade from a studio deluxe to a 1 bedroom King suite. Wow!! I have tears just thinking about it. Jacuzzi, washer and dryer, quiet pool view, second floor. The resort is truly unlike any other on Disney property. You feel so immersed in Disney magic. An amazing train room with lot's of Walt Disney memorabilia. I sat endlessly alone with my morning coffee in that room then would head out for the most beautiful sunrise and that was just the start of our days. Our next magical moment was with a Cast Member named Mark who took us out for a private fishing charter with views of the Grand Floridian, Polynesian and the Contemporary I can't ever forget. My daughter's first fishing trip and catching her first fish. So knowledgeable, catch and release of course we can't thank him enough and will be scheduling another charter on our next Disney vacation. We took a resort only vacation never wanting to leave. Each and every Cast Member from the poolside to Mousekeeping just the very best in Customer Service and we are so thankful. We will be back to the Wilderness Lodge the most Magical place for us. 🏰 ✨ TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Another Amazing stay.
Jul 17th, 2020
This was our first time staying at Boulder Ridge 1bd. My husband my Daughter and I came out to meet up with my Sister from Georgia. We're ex cast members from the Disneyland Hotel. So we know our way around DVC. This is a gem of a resort. We overlooked the pool and Geyser Point. We couldn't get enough of Geyser point and that Buffalo burger, both pools are awesome and I loved that Geyser pool had cabanas that were first come first serve. The spa was spacious. We're not park people since we've worked for Disney. But we went on a bike ride to Fort Wilderness and that was the highlight of our trip. We can't wait to come back. Staff are very friendly and we had a wonderful time. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Must Stay When Visiting Disneyworld
Feb 16th, 2020
5 of us (2 grandparents, a toddler, mom, and dad) stayed in a 2-bedroom villa for 5 days in late September. We secured our room through David's DVC rental--people who don't own into Disney Vacation Club can "borrow" points from owners to stay in a studio, one- or two-bedroom villa. Because of this, we paid 50% less than we would have paid if we tried to book this room through Disney's website, so, this was a great deal! The villas have full kitchens, which saved us a ton of money. We ended up buying groceries from Instacart (which Disney makes super easy to do) and ate breakfast and lunch in our room. The Boulder Ridge Villas is part of the Wilderness Lodge, which is a beautiful resort. We stayed in the Copper Creek villas before and love both of these equally, even though the Boulder Ridge rooms are older and not as contemporary. The Boulder Ridge Villas feels like a separate resort--it has its own building with a beautiful and tranquil lobby--the aesthetic is that of old west railroads and the rooms feel rustic and cozy. Aside from being its own separate building, it definitely feels very much a part of the rest of the Wilderness Lodge and takes advantage of the resort's great food options, wonderful staff, amazing pools, and boat access to the Magic Kingdom and Campgrounds. Because the Boulder Ridge villas are older, the rooms were huge. the 2-bedroom villas were well equipped for 5 people, and all of our stuff (including a stroller). It was nice to see that Disney updated the rooms and included the laminate flooring (in place of carpet) that has become a staple in newer resorts and renovations--I really appreciated that with having a little one.

Poorly designed kitchen and 2nd bath.
Feb 4th, 2020
2bdrm 2 bath "deluxe" DVC villa, tho there is NO fine dining restaurant as at other deluxe Disney resorts. Kitchen has basic supplies tho two upper cabinets over counter/bar are nearly impossible to reach. Sink has two faucets (hot/cold) with no spray so have to use extra water to keep free of debris. Stove top not properly cleaned or maintained. Looks like cleaned with general all purpose type cleaner rather than glass top cleaner. 2nd bath/shower with toilet way too small, should have taken at least another 1 1/2 feet from sink area. Every time the toilet flushes you know micro spray is hitting every towel. Beds lumpy and feels like some sort of plastic mattress cover. Urine smell overwhelming and obvious. Even # villas on smoker area and road side so noisy while buses running (about 6am to midnight) and deliveries being made. We requested (several times before arrival) odd # due to severe asthma but were given an even # room for our week long stay. We arrived at 6pm (check in 4:30p) and were told they could not hold a even # room for us away from smokers, they could move us on the 5th day of our 7day stay. Construction while we were there from 6:30a to 7:30p so additional noise. We turned heat/cool air unit "off" tho fan continued to blow 24/7. You have NO control of the temperature of your room and/or circulating air. Woke up coughing/wheezing at 6a one morning to cigarette smoke coming in through vent. Someone in another room must have lit up and uncontrolled circulating air entered our villa. We ordered in room dining 1st night and waited 3 hours. We were initially told 1 hour, we called and were told another 15 min. over and over again. We finally cancelled and the cold meal showed up within 5 minutes. We love Wilderness Lodge but will never stay at Boulder Ridge again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
