What is the difference between Boulder Ridge Villas and Copper Creek Villas & Cabins?
Boulder Ridge is the original Disney Vacation Club development which opened in 2000 and was formerly known as Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Its mixture of Deluxe Studio, One and Two Bedroom Villas are located in a separate building connected to the main lodge via a covered walkway.
Copper Creek Villas & Cabins debuted in 2016. Most of the rooms are hotel rooms in the main lodge which were converted to DVC villas. In addition to Studio, One and Two Bedroom villas, Copper Creek also feature large Grand Villas and freestanding Cascade Cabins situated along the shores of Bay Lake.
Where do I check in?
Guests staying in either Boulder Ridge or Copper Creek should check in at the main lobby in Disney's Wilderness Lodge. There is no separate check-in desk for the villas.
What sorts of unique activities are available at Wilderness Lodge?
A "flag family" is selected daily to raise the resort flags for the day. Inquire at the concierge desk to find out if openings are available.

Hidden Mickey's are waiting to be discovered throughout the resort.
A free "Wonders of the Lodge" tour is offered several times per week.

If I'm staying in a Boulder Ridge studio, where are the laundry facilities?
There are laundry facilities on the first floor of the villa wing just past the elevators.
Is it true that there is one Deluxe Studio at Boulder Ridge with no balcony?
Yes. All the studios on the first floor have a patio instead of a balcony. But Deluxe Studio 4533 on the fourth floor does not have a balcony at all.
The room is a lockoff villa so it may be assigned as part of a Two Bedroom accommodation or to a guest staying in a Deluxe Studio villa.
