The newest addition to the Disney Vacation Club, Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, opened to guests on July 17th. We were on hand to tour the Villas, the Cabins and the Boulder Ridge Cove Pool. We participated in group-style interviews with Disney Leaders and we witnessed the official Grand Opening Ceremony officiated by Mickey Mouse. Here is our review of the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins Grand Opening Event.
The Deluxe Studios Villas can sleep up to 4 people. These lovely accommodations feature a queen-size bed, queen-size sleep sofa, kitchenette, flat screen television and full bathroom. Each studio also has either a private balcony or patio.
One-Bedroom Villas are beautifully appointed with a King-size bed in the private bedroom, queen-size sleep sofa, full kitchen, stacked washer and dryer, walk-in shower, bathtub, large wardrobe, flat screen television and outdoor patio or balcony. These lovely Villas sleep up to 4 people.
The grandest of all the Villas is the Three-Bedroom Grand Villa. These stunning Villas feature a large dining area as well as breakfast bar seating at the island. Grand Villas also feature a full kitchen, walk-in closet, king-size bed in the master bedroom, two queen-size beds in each of the other two bedrooms and a queen-size sleeper sofa. With the ability to sleep up to 12, the Grand Villas are certainly the place to gather with family. The master bathroom has a beautiful soaker tub as well as a walk-in shower. We love the wood and tile floors throughout the Villas. The carpet-free atmosphere is allergy-friendly and environmentally friendly too! Look for the in-mirror television in the master bathroom and watch for morning and evening light features through the geode glass window that connects the master bedroom and bathroom.

We left the Boulder Ridge Villas Building and headed over to the Cascade Cabins. We could not help but admire the beautiful views throughout this Resort.
The grounds of the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins also feature great Grill areas. Imagine being able to relax with the family, while grilling outdoors, after a busy day at one of the Walt Disney World Parks.
As you approach your Cascade Cabin be sure to look for all the fun elements that have been added. Each cabin has a stone marking with the cabin number. Atop you will notice that each cabin has its own lantern; and every one is different. Animal footprints in the walkway lead you to your cabin and your front porch will feature a really cool wood-stump bench.
As you enter your Cabin you will notice a wood mantel mounted to the wall. But more importantly, take some time to admire the wood stump art feature wall. Be sure to take note of the gorgeous lighting fixture suspended from the ceiling. The hall closet houses a high chair and port-a-crib if you happen to be travelling with your little one.
The Cabins have two bedrooms and sleep up to 8 plus 1 Infant in a port-a-crib. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and fully equipped master bathroom to include a bubble-jet tub. The second bedroom features a queen-size bed plus a pull-down twin bed and a lovely window seat with large storage drawers underneath. The main living area has a queen-size sofa sleeper and a sleeper chair. The cabins have 2 full baths plus one 1/2 bath, washer and dryer, and double-sided gas fireplace (our absolute favorite feature). The kitchens are fully equipped with full-size appliances, a table for 8 plus a small island with stools for seating. The wood features throughout adhere to the Pacific Northwest theme throughout the resort.
The outdoor screened porch overlooks the water. You will not mind having a Resort day when you have this hot tub, picnic table, rocking chairs facing your gas fireplace and these views!

The new Boulder Ridge Cove Pool highlights the Crane from the former Backlot Tour’s Catastrophe Canyon. There is a waterfall feature and the pool is handicap accessible. You will find Cabanas poolside and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The pool is a nice place to relax and cool off, or just catch some of the Florida Sunshine available most days at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Walt Disney was very fond of trains as many of us already know. The Imagineers incorporated Artwork featuring acknowledgments to the Carolwood Pacific Railroad; which was the miniature that Walt had in his back yard. Another fun point to make here is that all of the Villas and Cabins do have Hidden Mickey’s. It’s all in the details!
The Grand Opening Ceremony itself was filled with lively music, a few jokes, some really good speeches about this magnificent resort and the one who started it all, Mickey Mouse himself when he officially opens the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins with a pull of the Train Whistle. After the Grand Opening Ceremony we were treated to Frozen S’mores and they were delicious.
We were granted group interview opportunities with Mitch Miorelli, Project Manager and Ken Potrock, Disney Vacation Club Senior Vice President & General Manager. See our short video as we listen to Ken Potrock speaking to some of the immersive features of the cabins here:
