You’ve probably heard about the exciting re-imagining taking place at one of the original Walt Disney World Resort hotels, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and today we have more news to share about Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows.

Check out this just-released rendering of the new Disney Vacation Club Bungalows, the first of their kind on any Disney property. The 20 Bungalows will sleep up to eight guests each in a home-like setting reminiscent of the South Pacific. My favorite feature though has to be the plunge pool overlooking Seven Seas Lagoon, and the view of the fireworks over Magic Kingdom Park.


Adding to the excitement, we are opening the largest Deluxe Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort. The 360 Deluxe Studios will sleep up to five guests each and have the ability to connect to another Deluxe Studio, the first time we have done this at a Disney Vacation Club Resort. Similar to Disney Cruise Line ships and The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the rooms will each have a bathroom separated into two areas, one with a shower and sink and the other with a sink and tub/shower. Plus, they also will have kitchenettes and enhanced storage space for convenience and comfort.


Another great part? Like all Disney Vacation Club Resorts, all rooms at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows are available for rent by guests when not in use by Disney Vacation Club Members!

The addition of Disney Vacation Club to this beloved resort is part of an overall renovation. A re-imagined Great Ceremonial House will welcome guests to a tropical destination where Disney magic meets South Seas hospitality. Also included is an enhanced feature pool and new food and beverage offerings, including Pineapple Lanai where Members and guests can get their favorite Dole Whip treats and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, which will feature exotic cocktails and Polynesian-themed small plates. Earlier this year, the resort opened a brand-new children’s activity center called Lilo’s Playhouse.

The first phase of Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows is scheduled to open in 2015. Stay tuned as we continue to share more news in the coming months!


  • i can not wait for it to be finished. I am so excited.

  • Are they finally putting in a hot tub then at the Poly? We were so disappointed when we stayed there in 2011 and found out there as no hot tub.

  • We’ve been saving our $$$ since we heard about it!! Can’t wait!!!

  • Looks good!

    I hate to ask something like this, but I hope : ” one with a shower and sink and the other with a sink and tub/shower.” is a typo(or slight omission)?

    Presumably one of the 2 areas includes the “other” standard fixture found in a bathroom? 😉

  • Will the tubs in the Studios at the Polynesian be jacuzzi tubs like the 1 & 2 Bedroom and Grand Villas at the other DVC resorts?

  • Since these studios will be larger, will they feature a washer/dryer like the one bedroom villas do?

  • The figure on the wall in the darker shot closely resembles the animatronic that used to appear in the Tiki Room: Under New Management. Rebecca, can yo confirm its the same figure, or if it’s going to be a moving animatronic in this location?

  • Now, if we only knew when they go on sale… :-)
