FROG FAMILY REVIEW
Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge*

What we love

  • One of the coziest, most secluded-feeling properties on-site
  • Wilderness theme is a big hit with the tadpoles
  • Boat transportation to Magic Kingdom® Park
  • Deluxe studios, and 1 and 2-bedroom suites
  • One of the only properties to offer studios that sleep 5
  • Surrey biking and carriage rides through the wooded nature paths
  • Boulder Ridge Cove Pool is quieter is nestled among the pines; main feature pool is just a hop, skip and jump away
  • Pony rides and archery are just a boat ride away at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
  • Nearby Lodge is home to one of the most romantic restaurants on property at Artist Point
  • Free parking!

Keep in Mind

  • The hotel charges $33 per night (sales tax included) for valet parking
  • One of the only deluxe resorts not on the monorail to Magic Kingdom® Park
  • Sometimes shares bus service with Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, so wait times to the parks can be a little bit longer

Notable Facts

  • Like Disney's Wilderness Lodge, the Villas were inspired by the national parks of the Pacific Northwest
  • The Carolwood Room on the first floor of the Boulder Ridge Villas lobby is named after Walt Disney’s outdoor model railroad, the Carolwood Pacific, and includes a mini-museum

Frog Family Tips

  • Request an odd-numbered room on an upper floor for the best views of the woods
  • Stop by the Lodge's front desk and ask for a Hidden Mickeys Hunt that offers clues to find all of the Hidden Mickeys at the resort
  • Wind down in the evenings in the main villas gathering area; there are board games for the kids, and it's a great spot to cozy up with a book
  • Order family-style at Whispering Canyon Cafe for the best value and all-you-can-eat offerings

Best For

  • Nature-loving families, especially larger families with longer stays, who are looking for kitchenettes or full kitchens, in-room washers and dryers, and deluxe-level amenities
