With just two weeks to go before their official opening, the Cascade Cabins area and the Boulder Ridge Cove Pool opened to guests at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort this week. Below, we have a video tour for you to enjoy of the awesome new area, followed by some photos:

The mighty buffalo topiaries are back, a nice touch for the new area.

Now connected to the track at Geyser Point Bar and Grill, there is another mine car.

Steps away from Geyser Point is the new Boulder Ridge Cove Pool.

The entrance to this section of the Cascade Cabins can be found just behind Geyser Point.

Once it grows in more, the area around the cabins will be pretty serene. The look is already quite pleasant with the new foliage though.

I love the cabin number signs so much.

It probably would have been a little cooler if they were log cabins, but they aren’t unpleasant looking.

Benches in the surrounding area are nice and unique.

Now we head back to the Boulder Ridge Cove Pool area.

The spa timer is attached to dynamite. This might be my favorite detail in any pool area Disney has ever built.

The poolside restrooms are gorgeous and offer a little more privacy that at most resorts.

Don’t worry, I made sure it was empty before I took any pictures…

A shower and changing room with a locking door is a nice offering.

The covered seating areas are well themed and furnished.

And lastly, a look from above.

The Cascade Cabins and the Boulder Ridge Cove Pool both look to be fantastic additions to Wilderness Lodge, continuing the rich theme and attention to detail that the resort is known for. While we may scoff at more and more Disney Vacation Club additions, these are well thought out and well executed, and a viable addition to the DVC lineup at Walt Disney World.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • Is the Boulder Ridge Cove Pool just for guests who are staying at the Boulder Ridge DVC or can guests staying at the Cooper Creek DVC can use this pool as well? Do you have to pay to rent the covered seating areas?

  • Thanks for sharing the great video and pics. We were just there visiting since we live in Orlando and it was like being there again!
