    Hi, we are looking to travel in early October and are considering a Boardwalk Villa (family members are DVC and traveling with us) Will the villa renovations be complete by then? Thanks!

    Hi there Katie,

    Welcome to planDisney! How wonderful you’re thinking of heading to the magical Walt Disney World Resort this Fall, it’s lovely seeing the seasonal decorations at the resorts and theme parks. It’s less than halfway to Halloween and the DVC discount dates announcement have got the “Boo to you” parade song running through my head! 

    Every few years, Disney Vacation Club Resorts undergo refurbishment to keep things in tiptop shape. Sometimes the refurbishment is for soft goods and other years there are more major changes.  Currently, Disney’s BoardWalk Villas, a charming waterfront resort that is theme like Atlantic City from 100 years ago, is undergoing refurbishment. I spoke with Member Services but unfortunately, they do not have a completion date that could be shared. The Cast Member I spoke to, however, recommended keeping an eye on the DVC website since any updates will be found there. 

    Katie, if you are planning on heading to EPCOT during your time at the Walt Disney World Resort, I highly recommend checking out the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Not only is there phenomenal food from globally-inspired chefs, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger hunt, Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit, Guests can’t forget about Eat to the Beat Concert Series where they can enjoy music performed by a star-studded musical lineup. 

    I hope this information is helpful to your vacation planning, Katie. Please revisit us at planDisney if you have any other DVC or planning questions!

    See ya real soon,
