The Wilderness Lodge is home to both Copper Creek Villas & Cabins as well as Boulder Ridge Villas. This Disney Vacation Club location whisks guests away from the hustle and bustle of their day-to-day lives and immerses them in the Pacific Northwest.
There are many reasons why Disney’s Wilderness Lodge (Copper Creek Villas & Cabins as well as Boulder Creek Villas) would be a great Resort choice.
For my family, we love how the lodge surrounds us in nature, hardwoods, and wildlife. From the low wetlands to the lush forest, you feel at one with the landscape. In a nutshell, this resort offers many features to fall in love with. The theming is spectacular with a soaring lobby and beautiful walking paths. The pools are set in the rough frontier and a boat service adds an extra means of transportation.
Enjoy being at one with nature? Want a quick boat ride to the Magic Kingdom? How about great on-site food options? Copper Creek Villas & Cabins or Boulder Ridge Villas are the Wilderness Lodge options for you!
Top 5 Reasons I Love Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – Copper Creek Villas & Cabins as well as Boulder Ridge Villas
#5. Lobby – Including Pin Board and Chip & Dale
The lobby at this resort is breathtaking! No detail is spared in this turn-of-the-century, great American Northwestern depiction of history and wilderness.
From bubbling brooks that originate in the lobby and flow to the feature pool area, to soaring, stone fireplaces, this lobby is a delight to explore.
Also, it is not uncommon to encounter some of our favourite Chipmunks hanging out at the Lodge, Chip and Dale!
There is always a group of kids following these two fun-loving characters around the lobby!
And, if you love Disney Pin Trading, you will not be disappointed by the very active pin board in this resort’s lobby.
#4. Dining Options
The food options available at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge were exceptional! While a higher-end dining experience can be had at Artist Point, we even loved the plentiful dishes at the counter service restaurant, Roaring Fork. The real winner for us was the food and good times being served up at Whispering Canyon, located right in the main lobby of the resort. Family-style skillets and dishes that had us looking forward to the next visit!
Who doesn’t love starting dinner with a never-ending milkshake?
But don’t get too full on the milkshake because the dinner spread is nothing short of amazing! Chicken, Sausage, Ribs, Pork, Green Beans, Corn Niblets, etc.
Wonderful food and a very fun vibe are found at the Whispering Canyon Cafe.
The breakfasts at Whispering Canyon were equally incredible! And, yes, if you request Ketchup, you will be in for a surprise!
#3. Location and Water Taxi
The Wilderness Lodge is located in what feels like such a remote haven, but with a convenient Water Taxi, you are still not too far from the action! Such a convenient and relaxing mode of transporting yourself directly to the Magic Kingdom!
This resort has a very nice feature pool and kids’ water play area, but it also has one of the nicest quiet pools on Disney World’s property, Boulder Ridge Cove Pool.
The kids always have a blast at this water play area that has bubblers, sprayers, water cannons, slides and buckets of cascading water!
And then there is the impressive Boulder Ridge Cove Pool. This pool was our favourite spot to relax in the sun and play in the calm waters. The zero-entry feature allows for very easy pool play for the kids and the ample deck seats allow for close parental oversight.
#1. Theming, Grounds, Wildlife
Well, we finally made it to our favourite reason for loving the Wilderness Lodge. The grounds and theming as well as resident wildlife is simply breathtaking.
The subtle remnants of an old Mining and Railway company immerse you in the serenity of this resort.
While the beauty and vitality of nature surrounds your every sense…
Gorgeous wood plank walkways for enjoying the low wetland areas. And even a geyser that blows multiple times each day.
Wilderness Lodge (Copper Creek Villas and Cabins, and Boulder Ridge Villas) is one of the most relaxing places to stay at Disney World. If wildlife, nature, relaxation, and rustic elegance is what you seek, look no further.
Overlooking beautiful Bay Lake, you cannot help but feel connected to the environment around you. This resort should appeal to all ages, boasting rustic charm, but enveloped in luxury with all of the amenities and activities to ensure a wonderful and memorable stay.
