No evidence of Copper Creek or Boulder Ridge...yet

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.
