The new DVC expansion at the Wilderness Lodge is progressing well. The cabins and villas for Copper Creek Villas and Cabins, as well as the new Boulder Ridge Cove Pool and Geyser Point Bar & Grill are all opening in 2017. In fact, the Geyser Point Bar & Grill is scheduled to open in February. Geyser Point Pool Bar & Grill will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as specialty cocktails, beer and wine.
As a reminder, here is what it will look like when completed.
The following brief video provides an overview of the state of construction

Below shows the Boulder Ridge Cove Pool in the center, with Geyser Point Bar & Grill in the upper right.
You can see them building the ridge of boulders around the pool – hence it’s name.
Here is a closer look at the ridge of boulders. It just looks like concrete now.
Here is the tower-like construction next to the pool.
They just have steel rebar without any concrete on this side of the pool.

The cabins are painted in various colors right now.
The cabins will have vaulted ceilings, a double-sided fireplace, and a whirlpool tub. They are 2-bedrooms – similar to the bungalows at the Polynesian.
Inside the south wing of the Wilderness Lodge, the conversion of hotel rooms to DVC villas continues. Studios, 1-BR and 2-BR units will be available. There are also rumors of 3-BR grand villas from some sources.
That’s our brief update. More to come next month.
