The final phase of Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, the newest Disney Vacation Club property at the Walt Disney World Resort opened today, marking the completion of all 360 Deluxe Studios at the resort.


I recently had the opportunity to stay in one of the resort’s Deluxe Studios and it was truly a fantastic experience. During my stay, I zipped over to Epcot via the monorail and made it back in time to watch the Magic Kingdom Park fireworks from the resort. I strolled along the resort’s beach area and tested out room service (late-night pizza was fantastic, but not as yummy as eating Tonga Toast in bed the next morning). At Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort I took my son on his first pontoon boat ride on Seven Seas Lagoon, spoiled his lunch by getting him a Dole Whip from Pineapple Lanai and sampled drinks on the outdoor patio of the new Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.

In addition to the resort’s unbeatable location and fun amenities, the features within our villa make this my favorite Disney Vacation Club Deluxe Studio to date. We especially enjoyed the spacious split bath design, the hidden pull-down bunk-size bed and the kitchenette (the fridge would have been perfect for our leftover take-out pizza, had we not polished the whole thing off right away).

  • We are scheduled to arrive at Polynesian next Thursday 7-9-15, i was curious which of the longhouses are now part of DVC. I am guessing Pago-Pago and Moorea. what about Tokelau? We are long time Poly guests and Tokelau is one of our favorite longhouses. Was hoping we might have a chance of being assigned a room in that longhouse since we have booked a Deluxe studio. No matter, we are ready to be at our favorite resort at WDW.

  • can I bring my cat ?

  • I would like to know, is the Polynesian Resort only for Vacation Club members, or can anyone still book a reservation there? Thank you, Carla

    • Hi Carla. That’s the best part – anyone can book a stay at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows!
