Our Team's Shows About Boulder Ridge Villas
What are the three worst one and two-bedroom villas in DVC? We asked our panel of studio staying experts to give us their top 3 choices. We asked them to focus exclusively on the room as we've discussed the resorts in numerous other shows. We also asked each guest to choose their own descriptive language to describe their bottom three villas. Floor plan and decor preferences were significant factors in Episode 225
DVC Members Roxanne Steele, Holly Austin, and Heather Knecht join Chad in this lively discussion about the key differences between Copper Creek and Boulder Ridge Villas. Both are under the Wilderness Lodge umbrella, but if booking there, which should you choose? After this episode, you'll have a much clearer idea of which would be the better fit for you. However, the gang concurs that when at Wilderness Lodge, you really can't go wrong. Topics covered include room types and vibe of the rooms, amenities for each side of the resort, pool areas, proximity to restaurants, and lobbies. As a result of this episode, you'll want to put Wilderness Lodge at the top of your list for your next trip to WDW. Episode 209
Our Boulder Ridge review series continues with a discussion about the rooms themselves. Boulder Ridge offers Deluxe Studios, One-Bedroom, and Two Bedroom rooms. Tune in to find out what Chad calls the Boulder Ridge floorplan, “the Beverly of DVC.” Episode 207
In Episode 206 we continue the conversation with Jim Korkis about the history and backstories of Disney’s Copper Creek Cabins and Villas at the Wilderness Lodge. This blog post is a high-level summary for show notes and photographs of things discussed in the podcast. For more information, you may want to see the articles Jim posted on MousePlanet.com. “The Wilderness Lodge Saga – Part One” and “The Wilderness Lodge Saga – Part Two.”
As we kick off the Boulder Ridge review series, we're rebroadcasting a show with legendary Disney historian Jim Korkis about the history and backstories of one of my home resorts: Wilderness Lodge. Jim is a former cast member at Disney in numerous roles. At one time, Jim led tour groups for Disney at Wilderness Lodge. In part one, Jim covers the history of the resort from the original concept of Cypress Point Lodge to what became Wilderness Lodge. Episode 205
DVC Members love their home resorts for a variety of reasons. Chad, Valerie, Brad, and Sandy are back to discuss the three main factors people use when picking their home resort. Some people buy them because they love the resort. Others buy specifically for the 11-month booking window advantage. Yet other members are more influenced by the financial, economic, and deed expiration dates. We believe every resort is unique, and there's something for everyone to love in DVC. Join the conversation as we discuss these three factors across all of the DVC resorts.
