    Beautiful property, room not so much

    My husband and I love the Wilderness Lodge property in Disney World. We decided to do a quick trip for July 4th weekend and Boulder Ridge Villas had availability so we booked a studio suite. The building and pool area is lovely. It is not one of the newer Disney Vacation Club properties but is well maintained. Our room was well laid out as far as floor plan. But then I discovered that bathroom. It was accessible which is fine but the shower water ran out all over the floor which made for a slippery mess every time. I shudder to think how bad it would be for disabled people! Thank goodness they are generous with towels so we were able to mop it up. The sink had no counter space which anyone will tell you is a total pain to deal with—even my husband agreed. The pillows in the fold out sofa were awful. No support at all. The fold out sofa itself was one of the nicer ones—no bar in your back. But if you are going to charge about $400 a night for a room, you need to do better.

    Amazing Rooms, and cabins!

    Not Up to Disney Standards

    We are presently celebrating our 50th Anniversary with our family at Disney's Boulder Ridge Villas. Quick check in but disappointing, underwhelming reception. Standing in the lobby looking at the documents included with our stay. Had to visit the lobby desk several times for an explanation about how things worked. Seems like the staff needs some retraining. The two bedroom villa has a wonderful view of the lake. The main room of the villa is tiny and the kitchen miniscule. This area is not comfortable for a party of eight!! The queen bedroom's bathroom is huge. Why not reconfigure the main living space to enlarge it. The king bed mattress was lumpy. I told one of the reservation receptionists and she had our mattress changed out. The sofa bed mattress was not in good shape and they changed that as well. Only problem now is that we can't shut the sofa bed. Everything else has got $$$ on it!! I even got charged tax on a half gallon of milk. What's up with that? All in all the price we paid is insane $1,000.00 per night!! They also charge $24.00 a night per car to park during your stay. Beware of the shower floor, it is beyond slippery. Had to call to get a rubber mat. That should be in the bathroom and not need to be requested. All in all very disappointing. I will say that the transportation to the park was great and the pool was beautiful and warm.

    This was my first time staying at a Disney property and it was everything I expected and more. Transportation from the airport and around the parks is very convenient from this hotel. We didn’t have to wait more than 15 minutes for a bus. We took the ferry once to Magic Kingdom and it was so fun! We didn’t take advantage of any of the resort amenities or pool since Disney World was our main priority. I would definitely stay here again.

    An Oasis away from parks

    Hi, Just returned from WDW with a 5 night stay in a studio at Boulder ridge villas aka(WLV). Studio sleeps 5 with a pull down single under TV. Queen Bed, pullout double sofa as well. I am a DVC owner but have not reviewed since renovation. New Pool area amazing!!! Geyser Point bar and grill great new addition! The Bungalows really fit the theme of resort. Why is Wilderness Lodge my favorite WDW resort. True peace away from parks. Quieter, visually beautiful, and plenty of places to hide out from the crowds. 2 amazing pool areas. New Snow White character meal at artist point. Whispering Canyon always fun!!! Roaring forks great food!!( quick service) I love boat ride available to Magic kingdom, Contemporary ( access monorail)... Fort wilderness( Hoop de Doo, Trails end( best cheapest buffet on property) . Bus service everywhere else. There is just something about the Wilderness Lodge that gives me peace. I think it will you as well:-) Happy planning Kerri
