Wilderness Lodge Update: New Geyser Point Opens Soon


One of the Walt Disney World Resort's best themed hotels is about to get even better as the location is currently undergoing a major expansion project that will include new amenities and accommodations. Among the brand-new offerings, Guests will be able to check out the Geyser Point Bar & Grill, which will officially open on February 13. Of course, the highlight of this expansion will be the new cabins being built by the shores of Bay Lake. Join us as we take a look around this absolutely amazing resort.


We will begin by enjoying some views of the stunning lobby area:

Roaring Fork Snacks and the nearby Trout Pass Pool Bar (located by the pool) will be closed for refurbishment effective Monday, Feb. 13. The two locations are expected to reopen with a fresh look later in 2017:

At this quick-service restaurant, Guests will be able to relax at the open-air pool bar and grill located along the water’s edge. Cedar beams and natural stone will create a rustic setting reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest. Artisanal Pacific Northwest distilleries are the foundation for the refreshing pool bar cocktails:

The location will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as specialty cocktails, beer and wine:

  1. Is Trout Pass Bar closing for good? What about the Geyser, does it no longer work?

  2. I will get to see my favorite resort again in April.

  3. Rumor is that Trout Pass, the building, must stay as it houses the filtering machinery and chemicals for the pool.

    If the bar stays is what we all want to know.
    My vote is yes, as it would be too awkward to ask folk in bathing suits to trek into the Geyser point bar & grill where folk are eating in order to order up a margarita.
