    We want to stay at the Wilderness cabins or Boulder Creek. Cabins have space but seem far from the lodge and we need to cut distance due to a medical condition. What are the comparable distances from cabins to lodge/ridge from lodge?

    Guess what, Elizabeth! You have selected my favorite hotel in the whole world for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You're going to enjoy every magical moment in this Northwest-inspired paradise. I'm so excited that you will have the opportunity to experience Disney's Wilderness Lodge.

    The 26 Cascade Cabins at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge border Bay Lake at the back of the resort. Some of them are quite a walking distance from the resort's main lobby and bus transportation. When you make your reservation, I heartily encourage you to let the reservation agent know of your medical needs and ask for a cabin nearest Copper Creek Springs Pool. That will situate you close to the bulk of the resort's amenities. However, while Cast Members try very hard to meet room requests, please know that they are not guaranteed. 

    Overall, Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is much closer to the main lobby and bus transportation. They are a bit further away from the boats that carry guests to Magic Kingdom Park than the Cascade Cabins, but closer to the resort's other amenities. Again, if you book at Boulder Ridge Villas, note on the reservation that you'd like to be in a villa close to the main lobby. With regard to space, I think you'll find that the two bedroom villas in this building rival the space you would enjoy in a Cascade Cabin.

    Good luck with your decision, and let us know if there's anything else you'd like to know about this magnificent resort. I could talk about this truly inspired place for days.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
