Snow White and the Dwarfs meet guests at their tables, while Evil Queen is at a staged photo-op in the middle of the restaurant that you can do at the end of your meal (but probably shouldn’t). But The Evil Queen is not exactly known for warmly approaching others, so she remains at her photo opportunity area where guests are welcome to pose with her.
Guests will begin the storybook-themed dining experience with shared appetizers including Hunter’s Terrine, Mushroom Bisque, and Wicked Shrimp Cocktail. The child appetizers are served in what looks like a miner’s bucket, which totally fits with the dwarf theme.
The “dirt” in the bucket also tastes delicious, but it was the tiny roll served in a small pot that had my kids begging for seconds. A nearby Cast Member took my plate away before I was able to snap a photo; the loud crash followed by 4 bouts of laughter probably told her something was wrong.

The fenced in hot tub on the porch gives off a blue light at night, and the sounds of the fireworks and Electrical Water Pageant tell you that you have found a new way to experience magic, Copper Creek Disney style. Disney World is constantly evolving while still providing a timeless destination filled with nostalgia.
In the last few years, the Walt Disney Company announced several new expansions to its theme parks and resorts. The soaring multi-floor open lobby is similar to that of Rambo House at Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Grand Floridian.
While the Grand Floridian feels so festive with its ragtime balcony band, and Animal Kingdom Lodge seduces you with its glimpses of faraway lands in Africa, the Wilderness Lodge welcomes you home to the serenity and comfort of the outdoors, campfires, and the majesty of country’s grandest treasures of the American West. Details in the design draw from indigenous art from the Northwest like the real totem poles and an elaborate headdress on display in the lobby.
A large stone fireplace in the lobby, reflecting the palette of the Grand Canyon makes this one of everyone’s Walt Disney World resort of choice at the holidays. Rusty train and railroad artifacts blend with a hot spring and geyser on property.
The bus stop will have electronic locks showing guests when to expect transport based on the dynamic schedule throughout the day. The main pool near Copper Creek Falls has a waterslide as well as an adjacent hot tub and a special fenced-in splash pad for younger children.
The Geyser Point restaurant is very close by for food and drinks poolside and has a takeout window in addition to table service. The Disney spa program is impressive, and all of my manicures and pedicures I’ve received from all the resort spas have lasted longer than my services at home.
Those interested in the new character make up transformation for adults uses the Mac makeup line for their more vibrant colors. All nail services are customized to an aromatherapy guests choose on their own from the Salt of the Earth line.
After selecting your favorite scent, your nail technician will customize your manicure or pedicure by adding that fragrance to the scrubs and body butters. I chose Bella Note, named after the Italian waiter’s accordion love song from Lady and the Tramp, and I had a strange craving for spaghetti and meatballs afterwards.
Although my service was excellent, my favorite memory from my pedicure was having two women step in, stop abruptly with confusion on their faces, and ask, “Oh this is a salon? My nail technician explained the small building used to be the pool bar, and this mistake happens many times each day.
Guests reserve spots at the Eton Bike & Boat Rental hut. Guests can take complimentary yoga classes by the Boulder Ridge pool on select mornings.
My red quinoa cakes were wonderful, and I was so grateful that Disney consistently serves healthy and vegetarian items. It was simply all I could manage to eat after having such a decadent and delicious lunch at Art Smith’s Homecoming in Disney Springs.
While I think that style has been toned down over the years, the ketchup trick remains for those eager enough to request it and play along. Servers invite young children to participate in a hobbyhorse race around the restaurant, and a few grownups typically get roped in on the fun, too.
Geyser Point is the newest restaurant at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sadly, I have not yet eaten at this restaurant, but it’s always been a foodie favorite at Disney World with reservation availability better than others.
The Roaring Fork is the fast service restaurant open all day that offers sandwiches and salads and a small menu. This lounge is exclusively reserved for Disney Vacation Club members and their guests.
While Disney Vacation Club members stay at either the Boulder Ridge Villas or the Copper Creek Villas, they are eligible to purchase clubroom access inside Reunion Station for a daily fee that will offer continental breakfast, afternoon snacks, and cocktails in the evening. If you’re a Disney Vacation Club member but not staying on property, you and your guests can register for some fabulous afternoon classes.
Both drinks were inspired by the resort’s celebration of the Pacific Northwest: a Cascadia Fog and Lemonade on the Rails. We lined the glass rim with the oil from orange peel, poured our mixture over an ice sphere instead of a cube to reduce melting, and we smoked our cocktails and garnished them with a sprig of rosemary.
Mine was a rich golden color compared to everyone else’s because I misunderstood the instructions using droplets of bitters. Generous plates of charcuterie and erudite on the tables gave us something to munch on after the hard work of poring remeasured liquor into a shaker.
Club level guests can enjoy breakfast, afternoon snacks, evening appetizers, and desserts each day. There are certain resorts Disney Vacation Club offers like Old Key West and Saratoga Springs where all rooms are part of DVC.
The Disney Vacation Club (DVC) villas at Wilderness Lodge are split into two different sections. Every DVC property offers a one or 2-bedroom villa floor plan for those seeking full kitchens, washers, and dryers.
The cabins are the premier option at Copper Creek with their privacy and standalone seclusion. The most memorable aspects of the cabins at Copper Creek are those things that make it unlike any other property at Disney World.
The sounds of the fireworks and the Electrical Water Pageant travel across the lake and tell you that you have found a new way to experience Disney’s magic. The hot tub in the far corner it’s fenced off for protection should you be traveling with younger children.
No matter the weather outside with Orlando’s ever-changing forecast, we had a special place to put on our suits and celebrate being together despite any rain or any cold-weather headed. The sofa and armchair in the living room convert to twin and queen beds, making the cabins sleep eight comfortably.
The second bedroom has a queen and a pull-down Murphy bed to reveal a Chip and Dale decorated inside. I was impressed that one layer of shades fits inside tracks so no light escapes from its side.
Several drawers, under the bed and bench storage, and a large utility closet provide room for everything. The storage closet contained a laundry basket, high chair, vacuum, and pack n’play.
This is Disney World, so there are no Nespresso machines, just a Mr. Coffee drip with Joffrey’s packets, so pack more beans and a decent chef’s knife (in your checked luggage!) Our cabin was in the western section, steps from the boat to Magic Kingdom, near the lobby, and close to the pool area.
Everyone could take a warming dip in the hot tub after attending the Very Mickey Christmas Party. Large families can put extra people in the Copper Creek Villa studios.
We have use David’s Vacation Club Rentals to save more than 50% off of the rates we would have paid by reserving direct with Disney. Our experience with David’s Vacation Club Rentals was seamless, and at this lower price point, I enthusiastically recommend the villas while staying at the Disney World Resort.
The owner doesn’t get paid in full until your check in date, so David’s Vacation Club Rentals works like an escrow account to protect you. Once booked, you can still add Magical Express reservations or Disney dining plans, and they can walk you through that process.
You can see how much you will save by using David’s point calculator on your stay dates and then compare that cost with booking the villa units directly. I have always gotten my deposit refunded immediately, and the agents have typically found alternate options for my dates if my first choices weren’t available.
The only drawback by using David’s service is that you will not receive daily housekeeping without a fee, and you must commit to your travel dates. I’ll help you choose where to stay, your theme park and ride schedule, and steer you to the right restaurants for your family.
