    We are staying at the Copper Creek Villas in Jan/Feb 2018. SO excited! What special requests should we make regarding location? Obviously looking for the best location in terms of lobby, bus or boat departure, and dining. What do you suggest?

    Hi Amanda,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am so excited for the new Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge! This Disney Vacation Club resort offers rustic luxury just a quick boat ride away from Magic Kingdom. What a wonderful location for a home base for your Walt Disney World vacation.

    When I make requests regarding room location, I find that it is best to describe the location I want, for example, near to the lobby, or close to an elevator. I find that this is better than making specific room requests. With a general description, even if a specific room is not available, Disney will know what you are looking for in a room location. Please do note that while Disney will do their best to honor requests, they cannot be guaranteed.

    The good news is that Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is not too spread out, so no matter where you are, you will not be too far of a walk away from anywhere. The main entrance and lobby of the resort are relatively close to the bus stop, which is out in front of the resort. The boat to Magic Kingdom is out of the back of the resort, so the bus stop and boat dock are not close to each other. You might consider which of these you are more likely to use more often to choose which to request to be nearer to. The restaurants are also fairly close to each other, with some right off of the main lobby and others as you move back toward the pool area. My husband and I enjoy having a drink and a bite to eat at the cozy Territory Lounge. If you go there, try the handcrafted charcuterie - it is delicious!

    Please let us know if you have any further questions, Amanda!
