Heading towards Roaring Fork Snacks, one of our favorite quick-service locations on property:
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:
The exterior seating area outside of Roaring Fork Snacks closed for renovations on Nov. 1, 2016:
The location is getting a new covered awning, allowing future Guests to utilize it even during the rainy season:
The resort is simply stunning:
The new Geyser Point Bar & Grill is currently surrounded by movable shrubs:
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:
The geyser area looks a little different now:
Let's take a peek at the new waterfront cabins:

We'll conclude with some photos of the Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge:
Is Trout Pass Bar closing for good? What about the Geyser, does it no longer work?
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.
