Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is a Disney Vacation Club property modeled after railroad hotels of the American West in the 1860’s.
This is evident in the lobby area of this section which features paintings and decorations devoted to trains of the period.
Off to one side of the lobby is the Carolwood Room, an elegant area dedicated to Walt’s love of trains, from his first exposure to them growing up in Marceline, to his elaborate 1/8 scale, half-mile long Carolwood Pacific Railroad which lived at his Holmby Hills estate.
The caboose on display is numbered 0-7734 – if you head over to the ground floor of Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Railroad Station, you can see a photo of this car in Walt’s backyard as he works on a nearby train.
The lobby is open to visitors of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, just follow signs from the main lobby area. Don’t forget to ask the main front desk for a Hidden Mickey Hunt before you head over!
