Reports have been making the rounds–both on the DVCNews Forum and elsewhere–that refurbishment work is beginning at Disney’s BoardWalk Villas. We’ve got the scoop on exactly what upgrades are on tap and the timeline for completion.
Exerior work on the building has already begun, along with replacement of the roof on the villa wing. The exterior repairs are scheduled for completion in September 2009 while the roof replacement is expected to conclude in early November '09.
Work is also progressing in the hallways and common areas of the resort with new carpet and wallcoverings being applied.
But the most noteworthy changes will occur within the villas themselves. Following is a list of replacements and upgrades scheduled for each unit in Disney’s BoardWalk Villas:
All unit will be painted
New carpet, drapes and bedspreads
Flat panel TVs and DVD players
New dishwasher, range, refrigerator and microwave
Existing furniture–including sofas, coffee tables and headboards–will be refinished and/or reupholstered
Some in-room work has already begun but officially the bulk of the villa refurbishment work will occur from August 2009 to January 2010.
