Exciting news today: Sales for Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, the newest Disney Vacation Club resort, will begin next week. Current Disney Vacation Club Members will have the first chance to purchase real estate interests beginning on March 8, with general sales following on April 5.

The resort, which is currently under construction, also has a scheduled opening date: July 17. Once open, Copper Creek Villas & Cabins will be the 14th Disney Vacation Club development and the second at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

Copper Creek Villas & Cabins offers Disney Vacation Club Members and guests a new frontier for magical vacations where the comforts of home and the wonders of the wilderness are deeply rooted in the magic of Disney. Inspired by the legendary mining and railroad history of the Pacific Northwest, Members and guests will discover rustically elegant accommodations, where cozy touches mix with modern designs to create a tranquil retreat.

Offering one of the widest ranges of accommodations found at Walt Disney World Resort, Copper Creek Villas & Cabins will feature 184 modern, nature-inspired vacation homes, including Deluxe Studios, one- and two-bedroom Villas, and even three-bedroom Grand Villas, which sleep up to 12.

The new resort will also include 26 all-new luxurious waterfront cabins. Sleeping up to eight and featuring two bedrooms, two baths and large dining and living room spaces, the cabins’ floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed wooden beams and interior-exterior stone-hearth fireplace bring the beauty of the outdoors in, and offer plenty of room for families. After a long day of fun at the nearby theme parks, guests can return to their porch and relax in the built-in hot tub. Some even enjoy a view of the Electrical Water Pageant on Bay Lake!

Additional developments at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge include the recently opened Geyser Point Bar & Grill, an open-air lounge overlooking Bay Lake. The resort’s quick-service restaurant, Roaring Fork is also undergoing refurbishments and is scheduled to reopen later this year with a refreshed look and expanded outdoor seating. Boulder Ridge Cove pool, a modern-day swimmin’ hole, will also open this summer.

Those in search of extra pampering will want to stop by the all-new Salon by the Springs for poolside manicures, pedicures and hair services scheduled to open this summer.

I’ll be sharing even more exciting details about this beautiful resort right here on the Disney Parks Blog in the months to come. Until then, visit to explore this latest offering from Disney Vacation Club.

  • I’m dying to see what the kitchens will look like in the cabins!

  • Can’t wait! Very exciting things coming to Animal Kingdom & Wilderness Lodge 🙂

  • A DVC Cast member just told me booking begins for those with new Sales at Copper Creek, at the end of March; other members can book beginning end of April – I believe it was April 26th. Enjoy!

  • When will the rooms be available to book for existing DCC members who own at other properties?

  • I love Wilderness Lodge. I come from western Montana and Disney got it so right when they designed the Lodge. Every little detail screams National Park Lodge. So I was really looking forward to seeing the new cabins. I’ve seen 12 pictures of the inside of the cabins. I don’t understand how they got them so wrong. If you just saw pictures and were asked to pick which resort they go to I’d pick the Contemporary. The cabins have a very contemporary sleek design. I saw exactly 3 rustic elements. The stone fireplace, the wood floors and plaid pillows. True cabins look rustic: lots of oak and pine, Craftsman style furniture, overstuffed couches and chairs, shaker cabinets and log walls. Not smooth exotic hardwoods and sleek lines. And where are the bunkbeds which kids love so much? These cabins do not match the style of the rest of Wilderness Lodge. They don’t fit. I’ll continue staying in the main lodge. Sorry, Disney, but you got it wrong this time.

  • Do you have to be a Disney Vacation Club member to stay at this new resort?
