    Hi!~I hope to make reservations at Boulder Ridge Deluxe Studio for July 2022. Do you happen to know anything about the upcoming refurbishments for this DVC location? Thank you!

    Hi Kristin!

    Welcome to planDisney! Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is indeed scheduled for a full refurbishment sometime in 2022. However, at this time, no dates have been announced. As a Disney Vacation Club Member myself, I just took a look at availability for Members, and I could book myself a room at the resort in July if I wished. I see full availability for Deluxe Studios for July and August for Disney Vacation Club Members booking with Vacation Points. While things are always subject to change, I think that means your odds are good that the resort will not be closed for refurbishment during that time! Keep in mind, if you are not a DVC Member, public room availability is different and may be more limited.

    In addition to not releasing a refurbishment schedule, Disney Vacation Club has not released any concept art for the renovation. Since we have yet to see any concept art, and the resort appears to be accepting reservations between now and July, I would make an educated guess that the renovation is not planned to start until later in the year. I see that availability is a bit more limited in the fall, perhaps that is a clue for us on the schedule?

    Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog and Disney Vacation Club Member emails for any announcements on the refurbishment. I am thinking the new look may be similar to the design of the standard rooms at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. I am also very hopeful that the design may include a Murphy bed, as that seems to be the way the recent DVC refurbishments have been designed. I think they are more comfortable and super convenient!  

    I hope this helps with your question, Kristin! Wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
