This is our page covering the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Wilderness Lodge also has a main building, as well as second Disney Vacation Club wing, which we cover in-depth on their own pages. See Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Boulder Ridge Villas for more information.

Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Overview

Wilderness Lodge resort is inspired by national-park lodges of the early 20th century. The Copper Creek, along with Wilderness Lodge and Boulder Ridge, ranks with Animal Kingdom Lodge as one of the most impressively themed and meticulously detailed Disney resorts. Situated on the shore of Bay Lake, the hotel features exposed timber columns, log cabin– style facades, and dormer windows. The grounds are landscaped with evergreen pines and pampas grass. The lobby in the main building boasts an 82-foot-tall stone fireplace and two 55-foot Pacific Northwest totem poles. Timber pillars, giant tepee chandeliers, and stone-, wood-, and marble-inlaid floors accentuate the lobby’s rustic luxury. Although the resort isn’t on vast acreage, it does have a beach and a delightful pool modeled on a mountain stream.

The 220 villas are studio, one-, two-bedroom, and grand villa units in wing on the right of the lodge. Studios offer kitchenettes; one-, two- bedroom, and grand villas come with full kitchens. The lodge’s rustic decor extends to the villas, which can be booked by non-DVC members as space allows.

Service at Wilderness Lodge & Villas is excellent. There are two full- service restaurants, with several more a boat ride away. The resort is connected to the Magic Kingdom by boat and to other Disney parks by bus. Boat service may be suspended during thunderstorms, so if it’s raining or looks like it’s about to, Disney will provide buses. Walking time to bus- and boat- loading areas from the most remote rooms is about 5–8 minutes.

Copper Creek also feature lakeside cabins which sleeps up to 8. Cabins contain 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Queen-Size Sleeper Sofa, 1 Bunk-Size Pull-Down Bed, 1 Twin-Size Sleeper Chair. All cabins feature lovely views of Bay Lake.

How Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort & Villas Compares to Other Disney Resorts

The major advantage of Wilderness Lodge Villas is that the Magic Kingdom is short boat ride away. Wilderness Lodge does offer a fitness center, salon, and a spa.

Where To Check-In, Get Theme Park Tickets, and Make Dining Reservations

A security gate guards the entrance to Wilderness Lodge's grounds. If you arrive by car, you'll need to provide photo ID at the gate; it's not necessary to provide your reservation number or paperwork. A dedicated parking lot across from the lobby serves as temporary parking for those who need it while checking in.

Check-in time at Wilderness Lodge is 3:00 PM, and check-out time is 11:00 AM. Wilderness Lodge participates in Disney's Online Check-In program, which allows you to you provide name, address, and credit card information up to 60 days before your arrival. If you've done this, look for an Online Check-In sign near the Registration Desk. You'll be routed to one of the Online Check-in staff and should be on the way to your room in a few minutes.

If you've not registered online, look for signs pointing you to the Registration/Check-In area. You'll need to provide a government-issued photo ID and credit/debit card when you register. While parents are completing the paperwork, kids can unwind in a nearby play area decorated with child-sized furniture, and a television showing classic Disney animated films.

Disney's Wilderness Lodge's registration staff can provide MagicBands for your stay, if you don't already have them. Get theme park tickets and dining reservations at the Concierge Desk, to the right of the Registration Desk. If you need to check in and obtain theme park tickets, you can save some time in line if one adult gets in line for tickets just after another adult starts the registration process. The Concierge Desk can also make Disney dining reservations, and you can avoid a wait there by making them online prior to arrival.

For dining, shopping, recreation, and other amenities, see our main Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort page.
