    I had the opportunity to stay for one evening at Boulder Ridge Villas on a very short trip to Florida. Disney did not disappoint in their customer service and the amenities in their studio room. Room was very nice size with a queen bed, pull out couch that could also sleep to and tucked away pull down twin bed that transformed the table into the base and it had a beautiful scene from Bambi on the wall. The room also had a kitchenette that had glassware, plates, bowls, coffee mugs, coffee pot, mini fridge, microwave and sink. The balcony was lovely to have your morning cup of coffee. Bathroom sink area was outside the tub/shower and toilet which allowed us to get ready in the morning much more quickly. The grounds are beautiful so take the opportunity to stroll and take it in.

    I absolutely love staying at Boulder Ridge Villas at the Wilderness Lodge, Walt Disney World. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The room was gorgeous, with attention to detail - those little touches that make all the difference. The concierge, Kirk, went above and beyond to help us get the dining and fast passes we wanted. Our vacation was truly magical. You can walk undercover to the main lobby of Wilderness Lodge. There are buses to take you to the parks and a ferry boat to the Magic Kingdom. The grounds are gorgeous.

    A Favorite!

    We stayed at Boulder Ridge at the Wilderness Lodge for Thanksgiving week in 2018. I think it is still my favorite resort albeit Animal Kingdoms Kadani Village is close. Very relaxing. The Lodge was decorated for Christmas and the Thanksgiving dinner was out of this world! Make reservations early. My husband and I mostly loved the bar/grill down by the pool area. The food was delicious and we could sit in the evening and watch the water lights show. Easy boat ride to Magic Kingdom. The two Disney VC's are close to lodge so it was an easy walk to the lobby. Very quite. Highly recommend or maybe I shouldn't they were already booked for this Thanksgiving :(

    Fantastic rooms and service, good transportation but with a so-so pool and limited dining on-site.

    Our family needed three beds, so we ended up in a 2BR villa at Wilderness Lodge. The room itself and the hotel staff were fantastic. It is a great place out of which to base a Disney vacation as there is direct bus service to every park (although it can be a little tricky to get to other resorts) and a very convenient boat service to Magic Kingdom and the Contemporary. My biggest gripe are the food options. There is a character dining dinner restaurant (which we could never get in to), a sit-down restaurant with a limited menu consisting of random piles of food in a pan, an outdoor lounge with a very limited menu, and a counter-service restaurant that is the equivalent of the continental breakfast that would be free at any other hotel. The drink stations are also not convenient specifically for those staying in the Villas as they are a bit of a walk from anything. We ended up spending a lot of time on transportations going to other locations for dinners and made do with the counter-service restaurant for breakfast. The pools are just OK. The main pool is far from the Villas, has a small waterslide, and can get fairly crowded. The second pool is closer to the villas but doesn't offer anything special. We didn't spend much time at the pool, however, so it wasn't a major problem. We also struggled to find stairs in the building. We were on the second floor and really did not want to keep using the elevator. We never did find the stairs.

    Our stay at Boulder Ridge was fabulous. The room was convenient to the bus stop and the pool. Easy walk to the boat dock. The one bed room provided us the space to relax and have some space. Plus it had washer/dryer access in the room. Located With easy access to the Wilderness lodge.
