PHOTOS: Construction Continues on Reflections: A Disney Lakeside Lodge; Tri-Circle-D Ranch Nearing Completion with Themed Wooden Archway at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

Work at the site of Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge continues to move forward on the shores of Bay Lake. Today, we took a trip by the site to see some of the latest additions.

From the boat dock at Wilderness Lodge, we can see where work along the southern shoreline of Bay Lake between the Reflections site and the Boulder Creek Villas is taking place. This is where several bungalows along the water’s edge will eventually be located, as well as an expected walking path between the two resorts.

Along the former beach at Fort Wilderness, we can see that several mature trees are being kept on site as opposed to being removed. This is a welcome sign that some of the trees that are here will still remain after work is completed, as they provide nice shade in the day.

From the dock at Ft. Wilderness, a wider view of the work happening where more bungalows will be located.

The walking path at Ft. Wilderness from the boat dock to Crocket’s Tavern continues to be lined with green construction fencing.

From Crocket’s Tavern, a large red crane can be seen rising in the distance.

Over behind the Settlement Bus Loops, the new Tri-Circle-D Ranch can be seen progressing rather quickly. Decorative wood elements to the building’s entrance have been installed and the roofing and siding seems to be in place as well.

From the bus stop, we can see a closer view of the site itself at the construction entrance.

Back along the shoreline, work continues with several pieces of heavy machinery on site for Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge.

Several large cranes are on site as drilling into the ground was happening to place support beams.

Hello, do you know if the current trail between the lodge and the campsite (which is closed due to construction) will open back up or will it be merged with the new hotel path? I’m visiting in june and it’s one of my favourite walks, but I have a feeling it won’t be open any time soon. Thank you, Nikki
