DISNEY VACATION CLUB ANNOUNCES PLANNED DEVELOPMENT PROJECT AT
DISNEY’S WILDERNESS LODGE

Celebration, Fla. (September 22, 2015) – Today, Disney Vacation Club announced its next planned project will be at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, located on Bay Lake at Walt Disney World Resort.

The planned project at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, when completed, will be the 14th Disney Vacation Club development and the second at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Current plans call for the resort to feature deluxe accommodations, including waterfront cabins. In addition to the Disney Vacation Club project, other guest areas within Disney’s Wilderness Lodge are scheduled to undergo substantial enhancements and refurbishment, including new recreation and food and beverage options. More information and project details will be shared at a later date.

Disney Vacation Club debuted in October 1991 with a flexible, vacation point-based model rather than the traditional fixed-week timeshare model. Since its inception nearly 25 years ago, Disney Vacation Club has grown to include member families from all 50 states and approximately 100 countries who have discovered the joys of membership. Earlier this year, Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows opened as the third jewel in the Disney Vacation Club monorail crown, offering Disney Vacation Club members and guests the opportunity to stay in Deluxe Studio villas and over-the-water Bora Bora Bungalows, which have been very well received by both Disney Vacation Club members and guests.

Disney Vacation Club members are able to choose from among a variety of vacation destinations, including a stay at any Disney Vacation Club Resort or at thousands of other resort destinations around the world. And, when they purchase directly from Disney, members also can take trips on one of the Disney Cruise Line ships or guided vacations with Adventures by Disney using their membership. Additionally, vacations at a Disney Vacation Club Resort can last from one night to several weeks.

Not sure if it has anything to do with the long term project, but yesterday we noticed they had cleared the trees and brush from the area between the boardwalk to the boat and the water. Now, once you round the bend past the geyser you can see the entire dock.

Maybe it was to give rooms with a Lake View an actual view of the lake or so people would start running for the boat sooner when they see it already at the dock.

They also cut the brush way back into the woods at Boardwalk between ESPN and the bridge. Looks nice.

Sounds like they're planning on making it a new association, not connected to the current WL DVC. Either they're planning on converting a whole lot of hotel rooms to DVC, or this is going to be the smallest property available.

Good to hear that it is official. I think many current owners of VWL I will be happy that they are going to be a separate association. I have seen many posts worried that availability at VWL I would be affected and everything would be booked by the 11 month mark if the the new was added to the old.

Aha! Sounds like maybe I should protest. If that's the area I'm thinking of, there were herons nesting there. Now, just like our herons at home, the poor little birdies have to find a new home since their home's gone.
