Many exterior areas of Disney's BoardWalk Inn & Villas is undergoing refurbishment work which is expected to last well into 2017.
Exterior painting and repairs are currently being conducted in many areas of Disney's BoardWalk. Scaffolding completely covers the end of this villa wing which separates the two resort pools on the western side of property.
Another group of workers near the resort croquet lawn.
On the BoardWalk itself, sections are blocked off as workers use large lifts to reach upper areas of the 5-story structure.
Both painting and physical repairs to the exterior of the building were evident.
Disney Vacation Club has not provided any completion estimates for the project. However, guests with reservations thru April 2017 have reported receiving notices that work is planned to occur around the property.
A number of people on DISboards have posted that they received the construction notice for BWV for their January stays. Many that got notices for November stays were surprised that the exterior work had not started. But based on TimK's experience it is going full blown now.
Work of that nature probably ebbs and flows. I know the eastern side of the BW was pretty torn up in late summer / early fall as Ample Hills, Abracadabar and Flying Fish were all being worked on at various times. Things may have settled down for a bit before picking up steam again.
