Disney’s Wilderness Lodge recently welcomed the addition of a new Disney Vacation Club property, Copper Creek Villas & Cabins, as well as newly enhanced pool and dining areas. And now there’s one more new enhancement at the resort, the all-new Salon by the Springs!

Those of you looking for some extra pampering can stop by the recently opened salon for manicures, pedicures, hair styling and other spa services. It’s the perfect way to enjoy a spa-like retreat without even having to leave the resort.

Salon by the Springs is open daily from 9am-5pm, and reservations can be made by contacting your Kingdom Magic Vacations Travel Planner!

Five Fun Facts about Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Five Fun Facts about Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

With the grand opening of Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge now just weeks away, we wanted to share five fun facts about Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

Favorite Fun Fact No. 1: The new Boulder Ridge Cove Pool Area enriches the resort’s back story of resourceful renewal, appearing to have repurposed a rock quarry abandoned by the Boulder Ridge Railway and Mining Company. If the area’s two pieces of vintage mining equipment look familiar, it may be because they played a starring role for years in Catastrophe Canyon, part of the former Studio Backlot Tour at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. These striking pieces of Disney history have now found another life, further underscoring the resort’s story of resourcefulness and renewal.

Favorite Fun Fact No. 2: A sculpted bear totem necklace shadowboxed on a wall inside the resort’s new Cascade Cabins is identical to one presented as a symbol of love to Kenai in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Brother Bear, a film that, like this resort, was created in Florida but set in the Pacific Northwest.

Favorite Fun Fact No. 3: Two seemingly abstract pieces of art hanging in the Cascade Cabins’ kitchens are deconstructed logos from two former Disney railroads: the Carolwood Pacific Railroad (the miniature train that famously carried family and friends through Walt Disney’s backyard) and the Fort Wilderness Railway (which traversed Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground from 1973-1977).

Favorite Fun Fact No. 4: Close inspection of the Pacific Northwest-inspired wall covering inside the pantry of 1- and 2-bedroom villas reveals an artfully hidden Mickey. (Also look for a less-hidden Mickey burned into these villas’ living room end table.)

Favorite Fun Fact No. 5: Timberline Drive, the road on which Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is located, shares its name with Oregon’s Timberline Lodge, which has welcomed explorers into the woods for 80 years.

Of course, there are plenty more fun facts to be shared about Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. What are some of your favorites?
