    How long will Boukder Ridge Villas refurbishment take to complete?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Julie it's great to see you hEAR again with another vacation planning question. 

    Julie, from the water taxi to Magic Kingdom Park to Firerock Geyser, I love everything about Disney's Wilderness Lodge including the Disney Vacation Club properties: Boulder Ridge Villas and Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. In fact my family and I will be headed "home" for a stay at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins next month and we can hardly wait! 

    Now, since it looks like you're hoping to visit Boulder Ridge Villas, let's talk about refurbishments. During the Disney Vacation Club 2020 Annual Condominium Associations Meetings it was announced that Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge would receive a full refurbishment in 2022. While I wish I had more information, we don't yet have a target completion date or details beyond this announcement. Currently Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is undergoing a multi-year refurbishment and is in the "home stretch" with only one section remaining. The updated villas look gorgeous and I can't wait to see what could be in store for Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. 

    Julie, if you're hoping to score a refurbished villa or avoid construction, I would encourage you to wait a bit longer to book in the hopes that more information will be released in the coming months. In the meantime, I encourage you to consider Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Only a few steps away from Boulder Ridge Villas, these units located inside the main building of Disney's Wilderness Lodge have a modern yet rustic vibe. You will also find that the points charts between the two are comparable. 

    Julie, I hope this gives you something to think about as you're dreaming about visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth. If you have any additional questions, make sure to come back to planDisney where, like Dumbo, we are all EARS.
