Absolutely Awesome!

Cecilyl04 on Jun 28, 2022

This was our 3rd time but my sister’s family’s first—there were 9 of us. Beautiful view of the lake and pool and got to see the fireworks every night from our balcony. Both pools were awesome but we got our own cabana at the Boulder Ridge pool. The grounds and the lighting were beautifully lit at night and very well kept. The staff was super friendly as usual. The food at Roaring Forks was great everyday for breakfast and we loved the drinks at Geyser Point. We had a wonderful stay!

Not good at all

These rooms are terrible for a value or moderate resort at WDW, but for a luxury resort it's awful, really. They're much more poorly maintained than anything I have ever seen before at WDW. Dull lighting with outdated bulbs, fixtures that don't match each other and/or are loose is the norm from what I see. I know they're themed to be rustic, but I was hoping for a bit more quality rustic than motel 6 from 1990 rustic.

Family vacation fun!

This was our first visit to Boulder Ridge villas. It was perfect for our family vacation! Check in was a breeze! We dropped our bags with the bellman and enjoyed the resort amenities until our villa was ready. We received a text and our luggage was delivered to our villa. The theming is perfection right down to the erupting geyser. Beautiful hotel! The amenities are great! There are several restaurants to choose from and the food was average for WDW. We loved the choice of boat or bus to visit the Parks. Fireworks were visible from the resort as well as the Electric Boat Parade. We had campfire and s’mores in the evenings….the kids loved this! The staff were welcoming and courteous. Special shout out to our bellman Ricardo and life guard Joshua (I think, May 19 slide side of pool in the afternoon). While I’m giving kudos James the photographer at the MK entrance on morning of May 20 was SUPERB! BR may be my favorite resort at WDW!

Never again

I wish o could say that I would love to stay again, but I can’t. I will not ever be staying here again. The front desk associate that I had to deal with after the Initial check in was rude. Plain and simple, with eye rolling added in. I’ve had bad experiences with the front desk years ago and quit staying here , but love the look of the resort and the food offerings so we decided to try staying here again. Nope. Still nasty inconsiderate cast members. The cleaning staff needs a huge refresher course and how to properly clean a room, and quicker, maybe instead of standing in the halls on their phones or gossiping with one another things would move faster and done better. The only pleasant experience was the wait staff at the Whispering canyon and the boat skippers are awesome as always. The common areas were clean and smelled good but not happy at all with the villa. I bring disinfectant wipes and believe me I used them.

Wilderness Lodge is the best resort on Disney property in my opinion. We own at Copper Creek, so wanted to give Boulder Ridge a try. We know from prior experience that the Boulder Ridge pool is idyllic, unfortunately the weather didn't allow us to use it on this occasion. The reception area is quiet and a nice homage to Disney history. Whispering Canyon is a very underrated restaurant. We had a 1 bed villa and it was extremely comfortable, ideal for families. Most owners will know how good this resort is, but if you're not a DVC member, and have the chance to rent points or stay here by other means, you won't regret it.
