Boulder Ridge Villas and Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge9 Comments
As it has been reported over the last few weeks the new name for Disney Vacation Club’s 14th resort will be called Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. But, the newest part of the Wilderness Lodge is not the only resort getting a new name. Now, the existing Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, which opened in 2000 will be renamed Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge at some point in the near future. This may only be fair that both resorts get distinctive names as they are both at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
In similar fashion, Disney named their two different buildings at Animal Kingdom, Jambo House and Kidani Village. Perhaps the distinctive different names will help with eliminating confusion for Members making reservations. According to the DVC Member Website the resort’s new name “gives that rustic community a more distinctive identity and allows Walt Disney Imagineers to bring the community’s story to life in new ways, including through the re-imagined (and soon to be renamed) Hidden Springs Pool area.”
This is not the first time Disney Vacation Club has made a name change to one its resorts. Originally, Disney’s Old Key West was named the Disney Vacation Club Resort. Later, the name was changed to provide it with more distinction from the other resorts.
The existing Wilderness Lodge Resort, which has 181 rooms, includes a combination of studios, 1-bedrooms and 2-bedrooms. Based on the size of the construction area and since Cooper Creek is considered an entirely new DVC Resort it seems likely that the new Copper Creek Villas & Cabins are to have different types of accommodations in addition to waterfront cabins.
