    When will the renovation of the Boardwalk 1 bedroom villas be complete? Thank you.

    Hi there, Dina--welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you decided to be our guest, and I'm here to help track down the information you're looking for to make sure your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation is simply magical. 

    I "shore" do love Disney's BoardWalk Villas--I'm originally from a little town near the Jersey Shore and it reminds me of home in all the best ways! From one Jersey girl to another, you've made a great choice for your 2025 vacation. The BoardWalk area resorts are so convenient to Disney's Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Fantasia Gardens Fairways & Miniature Golf. This part of Walt Disney World is also my favorite for a morning run--there's a lot to see and it makes for a fun outdoor workout. 

    Dina, all of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels are on a regular schedule of refurbishments and renovations to keep them in tip-top shape. A major refurbishment started at the BoardWalk early in 2024 and the pictures and videos I've seen from Guests staying in the newly updated rooms look amazing! When I visited most recently in June, there was still scaffolding in front of one section of the resort and work was actively happening.  

    I spoke with Cast Members at the resort, who said there is not currently a published completion date for the renovations. As there's still quite a bit of time before your January 2025 vacation, I imagine the work will be close to wrapping up if it isn't completely finished already!  You can always check the Disney Parks Blog or the BoardWalk Villas page--both are great sources for the most up-to-date information.

    Also nearing completion is the long-awaited Cake Bake Shop Restaurant by Gwendolyn Rogers. This lakeside spot will offer breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and desserts and cocktails for Guests. I'm maybe even more excited about the adjacent Cake Bake Shop Bakery--I'm always ready to road-test more Disney desserts!

    I'm sorry I don't have a specific date for you today, Dina, but I'll be wishing on the Evening Star that you have a simply wonderful vacation next January. If our planDisney squad can help with any other questions in the meantime, you know where to find us!

    See Ya Real Soon!
