While construction projects are still widespread at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, one new resort amenity may debut sooner than anticipated.

Disney appears to be targeting a winter 2017 opening for the new Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Guests with confirmed reservations as early as February have been notified that the new eatery will be open during their stay.
The restaurant is situated near the shores of Bay Lake, between the Silver Creek Springs Pool and the forthcoming Boulder Ridge Cove Pool. Geyser Point will offer both quick service and table service dining, along with alcoholic beverages from its bar facilities. Menu details have not yet been provided.
Geyser Point Bar & Grill construction progress, December 2016
Shortly after the debut of the Geyser Point Bar & Grill, the Roaring Fork quick service dining venue and the Trout Pass Pool Bar will close for refurbishment. No timeline is available for completion of these renovations.
The Boulder Ridge Cove Pool is scheduled for a summer 2017 opening. Disney Vacation Club has also revealed that Copper Creek Villas & Cabins--its fourteenth timeshare development--will debut in 2017.
Thanks to wdrl and Highpoint7 for the tips!
Pretty excited about seeing the new stuff and check on the progress of a home resort.
Of course when I got the letter (email), I went straight to DVC News to see any pictures that may be around on this new place. I saw the article and thus wanted to update if needed.
Someone posted on another site that Disney was constructing some type of cover or awning over the outdoor seating area for Roaring Forks. I don't know if that is true, but that would be another indicator that Disney has no plans to close Roaring Forks once the new Geyser Point Bar and Grill opens.
I hope that's a solid estimate on Disney's part. I know they fell several months behind on the restaurant renovations at Vero, but I'm sure Hurricane Matthew played some role in that.
Either way, Roaring Fork won't close until Geyser Point opens so guests shouldn't be impacted.
We are staying beginning February 12 and we received the same email!
