    I would assume so, they aren't labelled on a map.

    According to my DVC rep, there will be a satellite office at WL, in addition to the main office at SSR.

    Having bathrooms by the pool is a good idea. That way DVC members who are pool hopping don't have to use the bathrooms in the lobby.

    It already is....it has its own improvement district. Neither the cities of Buena Vista or Bay Lake existed before Disney....Disney created them.

    I'll be back at the end of April for the SW half. I plan on spending many an afternoon with a brew in hand, looking at that view.

    We will be visiting the show room at SSR tomorrow. I will see what I can do. We are interested in this new DVC expansion.

    I always will give things the benefit of doubt before judging. Case on point - the new rooms at YC. I saw pictures online and thought they looked bland and uninspired. After staying in one two nights ago, I totally changed my mind. Those new rooms a great!

    That's my mindset also. Those pictures are artists renderings. Until I see the actual mockups myself next month or someone posts pictures from their tour, I'm reserving judgement. From what I saw of the new pool construction from my room, I think it's going to be amazing and can't wait for it to be finished.

    It seems like there are still a lot of people who are confused by the new names for the DVC resorts at the Wilderness Lodge (well, maybe not here on WDWMagic, but elsewhere). This graphic helps show the two resorts.

    To bring my earlier post full circle, based on the pics from @flyerjab (quoted below), great to see the appropriately lampposts now installed. Much better than the initial ones we saw.

    Yeah, the original theme centered on a tribute to the National Parks lodges has been completely consumed. Shame too, as a railroad sub-theme can be a good complement to the parks one (as the original villas showed). But this is what happens when you try to add theming to a build rather than building to a theme.

    Geyser Point does look great. It'd look even better if there wasn't a subdivision of cabins right next to it!

    At breakfast this morning they had screens down to block the wind coming off Bay Lake.

    You can see on the rafters above that there are heaters. Also, after you order they bring it to your table with cloth napkins and real silverware. Another great touch!

    The portion sizes are very good. For dinner last night we had the salmon BLT, smoked turkey sandwich and the classic bacon cheeseburger with waffle fries. All fantastic! I also had the quinoa salad and it was great. Also, it was cold last night and the staff brought out blankets for those that needed them!

    For breakfast all the choices looked good. I chose the scrambled eggs, potato hash, bacon and cheddar biscuit. Yum!

    So roughly 1/2 of of the main lodge remains standard resort rooms? Sad.

    Eventually, the five tables setup right beside the lake will be the prime sought after tables at Geyser Point.

    We were just sitting here enjoying some drinks and watching the boats. In the distance you could hear the train whistle. It was wonderful.

    Photo update as of Friday, Mar 17. Concur with @flyerjab, these tables by the lake at Geyser Point will be very popular.

    A view of the new pool area and cabins under construction in front of Boulder Ridge DVC. Geyser Point is the large building on the left.

    A view through the construction fence of the rock work around the new pool area. Faux moss covers the tops of the rocks as with Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Avatar land.

    The replacement lamp posts are more "in theme."

    A new boardwalk is being constructed to connect the west cabins with the existing boat dock.

    Look! Trees!
    Half of what I see there around the first cabin look like fast growing southern pines. That's a good sign. Here's hoping they replant the rest of the stripped land with the same density.

    Below is the official count of rooms by DVC. They match the numbers I published on Wednesday morning, except they count the cabins as dedicated 2-bedroom units and don't break them out separately as I do (26 cabins and 56 dedicated 2-bedroom = 82).
