Disney Vacation Club members will soon have a new way to experience the "great outdoors."

Officially opening this summer, Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is installing 26 new waterfront cabins. Each of the two-bed and two-bath cabins have a screen-wrapped porch that encompasses a built-in hot tub (a necessity when staying in 90-plus-degree weather) and a double-sided stone fireplace for those frigid summer nights in Florida.

Don't want to swim in the nearby swamp? The cabins offer direct access to two new heated pools, along with a water taxi to take guests back and forth to Disney's Magic Kingdom.

Of course, you can't have Disney without a story. The theming behind this new resort is inspired by the deep-rooted mining and railroad history in America, mixed with today's turn-of-the-century living accommodations.

It's the perfect escape to nature for those who don't really want to actually be in nature.

Copper Creek Villas & Cabins officially opens on July 27, 2017.
