DVC Members Roxanne Steele, Holly Austin, and Heather Knecht join Chad in this lively discussion about the key differences between Copper Creek and Boulder Ridge Villas. Both are under the Wilderness Lodge umbrella, but if booking there, which should you choose? After this episode, you’ll have a much clearer idea of which would be the better fit for you. However, the gang concurs that when at Wilderness Lodge, you really can’t go wrong. Topics covered include room types and vibe of the rooms, amenities for each side of the resort, pool areas, proximity to restaurants, and lobbies. As a result of this episode, you’ll want to put Wilderness Lodge at the top of your list for your next trip to WDW. Episode 209

As we kick off the Boulder Ridge review series, we’re rebroadcasting a show with legendary Disney historian Jim Korkis about the history and backstories of one of my home resorts: Wilderness Lodge.

DVC Members love their home resorts for a variety of reasons. Chad, Valerie, Brad, and Sandy are back to discuss the three main factors people use when picking their home resort. Some people buy them because they love the resort. Others buy specifically for the 11-month booking window advantage. Yet other members are more influenced by the financial, economic, and deed expiration dates. We believe every resort is unique, and there’s something for everyone to love in DVC. Join the conversation as we discuss these three factors across all of the DVC resorts.
