    Default Bridging the eras at Wilderness Lodge

    A new video sheds some light on how Copper Creek Villas & Cabins is intended to match the turn-of-the-century theme of Disney's Wilderness Lodge. (Spoiler alert: it isn't supposed to.)

    We took the lobby tour and they used the same storyline explaining the differences between the designs of Wilderness Lodge and Boulder Ridge Villas. Of course the ranger didn't mention CCV's story, but did mention that the one wing of WL was a new DVC resort.

    I think the storylines are well done. Especially incorporating the trains at BRV into the story despite the fact that they are modern trains built in the 1950s and 1960s for Walt Disney.

    When we did the lobby tour at Wilderness Lodge, our Ranger Guide said that the day before he met with an imagineer and they talked about incorporating some of the new Copper Creek features into the tour. There is so much information that can be covered that the Ranger joked that the one-hour tour could easily expand into a five-hour tour!

    I strongly recommend the Wilderness Lobby tour. Its a misnomer to say its just a "lobby" tour because the Ranger takes you to the Boulder Ridge building and to the Courtyard of the Lodge. As with many things Disney, its amazing to hear the backstory and to see the attention to detail that Disney puts into its designs.
