We’ve all been watching to construction slowly come together for the new villas and cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, but we finally have an opening date for the gorgeous Copper Creek Villas and Cabins.
July 17 has been set as the opening date of Disney Vacation Club’s 14th development – and the second one set at The Wilderness Lodge.
The villas and cabins follow the theming of the resort they are attached to with luxurious comfort set against a rustic background. But while The Wilderness Lodge leans more towards a Yellowstone Park emphasis, Copper Creek looks to the mining and railroad history of the Pacific Northwest for it’s inspiration.
Ken Potrock, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club relayed his thoughts on how families will enjoy the new accommodations:
We’re excited to introduce Copper Creek Villas & Cabins to our Members and guests. Whether it’s a quiet night spent in a cabin unwinding by the living room fireplace or venturing out into the endless action of nearby Magic Kingdom Park, Copper Creek Villas & Cabins is the perfect place for families to embrace the simple joys of nature and reconnect with each other for a lifetime of memories.
The new section of Disney Vacation Club has 184 vacation homes, including the standard inventory of Deluxe Studios, one- and two-bedroom Villas, and three-bedroom Grand Villas. As is customary for DVC accommodations, the villas offer kitchen areas, storage space, and patios or balconies that look out on beautiful vistas.
The 26 cabins lining the waterfront are the thing really catching people’s attention, though. Two bedrooms, two baths, a dining and living room make up the quarters that boast floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed wooden beams and an indoor/outdoor stone fireplace. And in keeping with the notable “plunge pool” at the Polynesian Bungalows, Copper Creek’s Villas & Cabins also come with a built-in hot tub on each porch.
The area is currently still under construction, but sales for the villas and cabins begin on March 8 for those that are already Disney Vacation Club Members. Sales open to the public on April 5.
