Today, we celebrate the opening of Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, the newest addition to the expanding Disney Vacation Club portfolio. Located on Seven Seas Lagoon, this new resort features over-the-water Bora Bora Bungalows and Deluxe Studios with a tropical ambiance, which are sure to transport members and guests to a South Pacific-inspired paradise. Not to mention, Magic Kingdom Park is just a quick monorail ride away!
The new reimagined Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort also offers more dining and recreation experiences to discover and enjoy, including a reimagined Lava Pool, new children’s water play area, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and Pineapple Lanai, which serves the world-famous Dole Whip soft serve — just to name a few of the exciting new enhancements to this original Walt Disney World Resort hotel. And there’s plenty more beyond that …
Last night we invited media to come and discover this exciting new tropical resort with signature Disney touches. From touring the Bungalows and Deluxe Studios to visiting Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and Pineapple Lanai, the media was able to experience the exciting new features that Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort have to offer.
Here’s a video that highlights this momentous occasion.
In addition, here are some pictures from last night’s grand opening event.
Do you remember receiving an amazing Easter basket as a child? What did it look like? Why was it so incredible? Chances are it created a special memory because it was one of a kind. I bet it included your favorite things, too.
Here at the “Enchanted Florist,” my friends and I remember as well, so we created some new Disney themed Easter baskets just for you. If you’re planning to visit Disney Parks this Easter, take a look at this: introducing the Mickey (or Minnie’s) Easter Surprise and the Mickey (or Minnie’s) Easter Cinch Bag, now available at Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort.
Stuffed with plenty of goodies and surprises for your family, these pre-designed gifts make wonderful Easter baskets during your stay at Disney. And let’s not forget about those classic Easter treats. After all, no Easter would be complete without chocolate bunnies or Jelly Belly® jelly beans. Lastly, check out those exclusive containers. The collapsible bin and cinch bag are ideal keepsakes to be used at home again and again. Use the bin as a picnic basket or even as a reusable grocery tote, and take your cinch bag to the beach or use it to get organized at home.
Back by popular demand, you can once again “imagineer” your own gifts. Exclusive to the Walt Disney World Resort, our Custom Gift Builder is an exciting tool to help you create your unique Easter memories. Simply choose an Easter basket, tote or cinch bag from our selection of containers and fill with your favorite Easter or Disney treats. You can even personalize the gift by adding your name or the name of a loved one.
To get started, visit us at disneyfloralandgifts.com or call a Dream Maker at 407-WDW-GIFT for Walt Disney World Resort, or 714-781-GIFT for the Disneyland Resort. Quantities are limited so it’s ideal to order earlier rather than later. Happy Easter.
Blizzard Beach celebrates a refreshing 20 years this week at Walt Disney World Resort. This watery wonderland has been a favorite way for guests to cool down when it gets warm in Central Florida. This aerial view of the park from December 1994 shows the ski resort beginning to take shape.
The only place to ‘hit the slopes’ in Florida, Blizzard Beach is home to unique snow runs like Teamboat Springs, Downhill Double Dipper and of course Summit Plummet.
Twenty years after its debut, I still have a little trepidation as I walk the stairs to the top of Summit Plummet. How many of you have conquered Summit Plummet?
