Disney Vacation Club has confirmed that additional villas and lakefront cabins are being added to Disney's Wilderness Lodge. These will be dubbed the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins, a separate legal entity from the original Wilderness Lodge DVC component.
Opening date for the new villas is still unknown. Construction permits suggest work may continue well into 2018.
