Copper Creek is going to be the 14th Disney Vacation Club property to open at Walt Disney World, and the second at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. The Grand Opening is set for July 17, 2017, but I was lucky enough to be part of a group that received a preview tour. The sneak peek was very exclusive, in fact the Cast Members who were assisting our group with other things were not allowed to attend. We were also not allowed to take pictures. It was still a privilege to be able to take a look at these beautiful new options.
I’ll start with the villas. There are several different configurations that are going to be available. The choices are Deluxe Studio, 1 Bedroom Villa, 2 Bedroom Villa, and 3 Bedroom Grand Villa. We saw a 1 Bedroom Villa and a Deluxe Studio. The two can be combined to make one larger space. The villa sleeps four and has one bathroom. There is a full kitchen that leads to the open living room area. The table was booth style. A nice addition was the full sized washer and dryer. There was a balcony with two chairs. The studio, while quite a bit smaller, still had plenty of room. It sleeps up to four adults. There was a kitchenette instead of a full kitchen. It also had a balcony. Once completed, there will be a total of 194 units within the villas.
The cabins are where Copper Creek really shines. If you’ve been to the Magic Kingdom lately, you’ve probably seen them on the edge of the water. While they look rustic from the outside, inside they are gorgeous. They are the perfect combination of old fashioned and modern. There are incredible details, such as artwork made of old railroad signs and mantels made out of one solid piece of wood. They are a throwback to the cabins in the old mining towns, but they have modern conveniences. The Imagineers loved adding touches to depict the trains of yesteryear, since Walt Disney had a love of trains.
The floor plans of all 26 cabins are the same. They sleep up to eight adults. There are two bedrooms. One has a king sized bed and the other has a queen size. The second bedroom has a pull out bed, and there is a quaint window stool that has drawers underneath. The living room has a sofa bed that sleeps two and a chair that converts to a bed that sleeps one. There is a full kitchen with an island, and the cabins all have a washer and a dryer. Probably my favorite feature of the cabin that we saw was the enclosed porch. It had a picnic table where you will be able to sit and dine with an incredible view of Bay Lake. To the right of the picnic table is a hot tub. It is in an area that is further enclosed for safety. The porch wraps around, and on the side is a gas fireplace. You don’t have to be on the porch to enjoy the fire, because the fireplace is double sided, with the other side being in the living room. Be prepared to pay for the luxury, for non-DVC members the price during the Value Season will start at $1835 per night, while the price of a cabin will hit over $3000 nightly during the height of the Christmas Season.
After we toured the villas and the cabins, we took a quick look at some of the food choices that are available at Geyser Point Bar & Grill. Unlike the DVC properties, this dining option is already open. Some of the quick service restaurant’s choices include Buffalo Burger with Marion Berry Barbecue, Tilamook Cheddar, Lettuce, and Tomato; Grilled Portobello Salad with Whole Grains, Goat Cheese, and Balsamic Vinegar; Edamame with Chili-Salt; Shrimp on a Wire with Miso-Lime Vinaigrette, Togarashi, Schishito Peppers, and Chili-Aioli; Handcrafted Charcuterie; Chocolate Mousse; and Cascadia Sangria.

If someone is looking for luxury, relaxation, beauty, and convenience in a setting that feels natural, they will want to check out Copper Creek. While the villas are astounding, the cabins will blow your mind. They immediately feel like a home away from home. Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge are a quick boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom, adding to the appeal. I want to thank Walt Disney World for allowing me to preview such a magnificent new property. I knew that I would be impressed, and you surpassed my expectations.
