    Question:
    When we visited Disneyworld recently (stayed at Poly) - on Magical Express bus ride in, stopped at Wilderness Campsite. Did i see horses? Is that a feature that is available for kids? I have a 6 year old, thoughts on other activities at CC or Wildnerness grounds?

    Fort Wilderness offers pony rides for young children. There are horses at FW and you can walk through the stables.

    Fort Wilderness has both pony rides and trail rides. The pony rides are done at the Settlement next to the draft horse barn where they stables horses used in the park and for carriage rides.
    The riding stable is at the Outpost. You'll have to wait a few years for that though - minimum age is 9 and there is a 48" height requirement.

    Hello everyone! This is a great idea for a thread. We recently became DVC members in December and were so excited we decided to add Copper Creek as one of our home resorts.

    Purchase date: Feb 2018
    UY: March

    We have our first DVC vacation to WDW scheduled for this summer and we are definitely looking forward to it.

    10-21 Jun: OKW, CCV, SSR

    Looking forward to hearing about everyone’s experience and gaining useful insight about DVC.

    Has anyone on this thread stayed in a CCV 3 bedroom grand villa yet? I would love to see an in-depth video review or tour.
    Other than a couple of short youtube videos, I haven't seen very much out there on the interwebs.

    I was looking through some more youtube tours of Copper Creek, as it is my therapy while I save up money to buy CCV, and if you fast forward towards the end of this video, the video shows an incredible view. Any guess what room number this is? It is a 2 bedroom dedicated villa.

    Well I wish I hadn't watched that! I'm trying to convince some friends to go next year and split a points rental for a CCV 2 bedroom since I'd never have enough points to do it normally. Looks like it would totally be worth the cost and trouble, especially if we could get a dedicated 2 bedroom. Thanks for linking this, maybe I'll send it to my friend and see what she thinks!

    Very nice mini vacation on a Monday... From the enclosed balconies and mid-wing room location, I'd say it is room 6129, although it could be 6127. Both are dedicated 2 bedroom units. We'd love to have one for our upcoming stay in September!

    Not that you needed any more justification, but the dedicated two bedrooms are their own bookable category, so if you want you can guarantee that you will have one of them instead of a lockoff. That's what we did for our upcoming trip. It was a tough call because there are some great lockoffs too, but we like having two regular beds in the second bedroom.

    Yeah I noticed that on the RAT. I'm hoping that if we go through David's they'll take that request into consideration when matching with an owner. It doesn't specify on their site but I'm sure there are people who prefer one to the other if they know the difference.

    First, just want to give kudos to you for this board. Very good design and info. Not bogged down on non-DVC CC info.

    Noticed on first page the listing of Disney enticements for purchasing CCV. Just to share/update as a new owner. Disney offered the financial credit, but did not offer the $500 gift card. Instead I was offered/provided 2017 points into my account equal to the amount of points I purchased in my contract. Don't know if I missed out or if this is old news but just wanted to share/clarify/update what Disney offered.

    What is your Use Year?

    If you purchase today (April 17), and you have an August Use Year, for example, your 2018 Use Year hasn't started yet so shouldn't 2017 points be automatic and not a special enticement?

    And if you purchase today (April 17) and have a February Use Year, for example, and they give you 2017 points, did they bank the points into your 2018 Use Year even though you are past the banking deadline?
