The original Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge has been renamed Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  Keeping to its word, Disney plans to leverage distinctiveness of the Boulder Ridge name throughout renovations to the property.

The new zero entry pool is desiged to emulate the appearance of an abandoned rock quarry.  Keeping with the resort's Pacific Northwest theme, design elements will reflect the manner in which elements from the Transcontinental Railroad were repurposed by members of the community.  Within the pool stands a water tower left over from the "Boulder Ridge Railway and Mining Co."  Mine carts and other elements will help support the new theme.

Nearby, Geyser Point Bar & Grill will bring new food service options to the pool area.  The restaurant will offer both table service and grab-and-go options, including nearby outdoor seating.

Boulder Ridge Cove is scheduled to open in the summer of 2017.  

Meanwhile, work continues to bring new Disney Vacation Club villas to the resort in the form of the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins.  Hundreds of new timeshare villas will be added along with 26 lakefront cabins.  No opening date has been announced, but signs point toward a 2018 debut for Copper Creek.

I saw this artist's rendition while reading the article about the new pool in the Disney Files Winter Issue yesterday. The close ups really shows more details. It looks like there is a water tower near the new restaurant. It still looks to me that they are adding six cabana type structures around the pool. I wonder if the plan is to make them a rental item too.

I think the new restaurant looks very nice. I wonder if Disney will keep the other pool bar, Trout Pass which is located between the new restaurant and the main pool, Silver Creek Pool.
