I spent a lot of time as a kid exploring the wilderness areas of the Pacific Northwest. Hiking, camping, visiting beautiful lodges places you right in the middle of natures wonderland. Visiting Disney World’s great Wilderness Lodge gives me a feeling very close to what I felt when actually was outdoors.
When I heard about the new DVC villas and cabins that have been added at the new Cooper Creek area in the Wilderness Lodge, I was worried we’d lose a little of that connection to nature at one of my favorite resorts. Instead, and especially with the Cascade Cabins, it’s even more of a connection to the outdoors. It’s like you are renting a cabin in the cascade mountains, only there are gators outside instead of bears, and the occasional deer.
We were given an Imagineer led tour of the Cascade Cabins at Copper Creek Villas and Cabins. The layout is the same as the Bora Bora Bungalows at the Polynesian Resort, but Disney has taken the opportunity to upgrade these to a new standard of care for guests.
The 26 all-new luxurious Cascade Cabins all located on the waterfront, some with fireworks views of the Magic Kingdom. The two-bedroom, two-bath cabins sleep up to eight, offering modern luxuries with a homey, yet upscale feel. Large dining and living room spaces, along with a screened-in wraparound porch, allow for plenty of space for families. Amenities throughout the cabins include a full kitchen, flat panel televisions, a washer and dryer, a hidden pull-down bed featuring artwork of Chip and Dale, a built-in hot tub on the porch, an indoor/outdoor fireplace and a number of special Disney touches.
Disney also shared this great timelapse video of the Cascade Cabins under-construction:
We’ll have more to come from the newest DVC resort soon so stay tuned.
