    Hi there! My family and I are DVC members and are looking to stay at the Boardwalk Villas in early June! I saw you that is your family's home resort. Do you happen tovknow if the DVC villas will be completed by then?

    Welcome to planDisney, Nicolette, and Welcome Home!

    You absolutely made my day with your question! It is truly a pixie-dusted occasion anytime I get to chat about my happy place, Disney's BoardWalk Villas. We have been Disney Vacation Club Members for over a decade and we return to our Home Resort annually. Let's take a look at the refurbishment schedule. 

    Over the past ten years, we have seen many of our favorite DVC Resorts go through refurbishments. We always appreciate Disney Vacation Club's commitment to keeping their accommodations fresh and updated throughout the years. Updates have been ongoing throughout the year at Disney's BoardWalk Resort; we were particularly excited to visit the new Carousel Coffee this past July. The refurbishments at Disney's BoardWalk Villas, particularly the DVC Villas, are scheduled to begin in Fall 2023. I spoke with several Cast Members who reported that they were unable to confirm when these refurbishments were scheduled to be finished. However, I did a bit more research and found in the latest issue of Disney Files Magazine that the refurbishments were expected to be completed in Spring 2024. So, I think there is a possibility of the refurbishments being completed prior to your visit in June, but keep in mind that the timeline is not firm, and it will likely depend on your room type since the refurbishment is being completed in waves. I suggest calling DVC Member Services as you get closer to the time for your visit, perhaps in May, and see if they can make a notation on your reservation that you would like a refurbished room. While there is no guarantee, Cast Members will do everything possible to accommodate your requests. 

    Now, I have a few recommendations for your trip! For an elegant sit-down dinner, consider the Flying Fish restaurant. The seafood is superb and the Florida Sunset is one of the best desserts on property. If you are in the mood for a casual dinner, grab a slice at the BoardWalk Pizza Window and then settle in on Disney's BoardWalk to see if you can catch some of the evening entertainment. Finally, make sure to stop by the Community Hall at Disney's BoardWalk Villas to play games, make crafts, or even just watch a movie in the air conditioning. I hope you enjoy every moment of your upcoming adventure. Please feel free to come back if you have any additional questions!
