Things We’re Keeping a Close Eye on – Copper Creek

As (semi-?)frequent vistors to Disney World, Elyssa and I have (also semi-?)frequent discussions about whether or not we want to buy into DVC. Since the Wilderness Lodge is my favorite Disney resort (and in Elyssa’s Top 2? 3?), we have been closely watching that resort’s new Copper Creek DVC expansion.

Today, it was announced the Copper Creek has an anticipated opening date of July 17, 2017. Maps and photos of the rooms indicate that both the “deluxe studios” and the one bedroom villas may sleep fewer people (just 4, total) than other, similarly-styled rooms at some resorts. (From “artist rendering,” the Deluxe Studio Villas look to be much brighter than traditional Wilderness Lodge rooms.) The Cascade Cabains (as expected) look pretty fantastic (and seem like a good place to hold a future Mighty Men of Mouse podcast meetup. (If you really want to see all the possile room configurations, check out the drawings of “alternate studio” rooms pulled by DVC News.)

Throw in the recently opened Geyser Point Bar & Grill and this “updated” Wilderness Lodge is really starting to come together. I can’t wait to see it in person.
