Geyser Point Bar & Grill Open by March

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.

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!

I'm excited about our upcoming trip to Boulder Ridge. I am looking forward to seeing the progress made on the new Copper Creek resort and hearing that the Geyser Point Bar and Grill will be open when we arrive on March 27 is a bonus!

Hey Everyone, Just FYI here: I'm going to be staying at WLV on FEBRUARY 20. I got an email this afternoon letting me know about the construction areas and also letting me know that Geyser Point will be open for us when we are there. I just wanted to update the article which states in the headline a by March opening. (Just curious if anyone else is going even earlier in Feb and has also gotten a letter) It also said that Territory Lounge will be open as well. OTOH, it said that Roaring Folk, and Trout Pass Pool Bar will be closed for refurbishment. Really looking forward to trying these places out and I'll let you know how they are if no one has reported back.

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.

Looking forward to reading your comments about the Wilderness Lodge changes. We won't be at Boulder Ridge until the end of March, so you are beating us by about a month.

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.

Thanks Highpoint7!!!

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.
