Disney’s Copper Creek Cabins & Villas at Wilderness Lodge with Disney Historian Jim Korkis – Part 1. Former cast member and tour guide at Wilderness Lodge takes us on a journey through the lodge discussing the back stories behind the resort.
In Episode 004 we are introducing a new episode format. Most shows are DVC member interviews. However, today’s show is the first of a regularly recurring segment called “meet the magic maker.” We talk with former Disney cast members and industry insiders who can share inside knowledge, information, and experiences directly related to our Disney vacations. In these interviews, I seek out people who in some way left their fingerprints in the parks and resorts. I’m pleased to share a conversation with legendary Disney historian Jim Korkis about the history and back stories at one of my home resorts: Wilderness Lodge. Jim is a former cast member at Disney in numerous roles. At one time, Jim lead tour groups for Disney at Wilderness Lodge. In part one, Jim covers the history of the resort from the original concept of Cypress Point Lodge to what became Wilderness Lodge.
