The American Resort Development Association (ARDA), the Washington, D.C.-based trade association representing the vacation ownership and resort development industries, recently honored three Disney Vacation Club Member offerings with prestigious ARDA Awards at a gala in Hollywood, Fla., including two honors for the newest resort in our neighborhood.

Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows took home the ACE Domestic Project of Excellence Award (honoring the best of the best vacation-ownership resort built in the U.S.), as well as the award for best Interior Design.

Rounding out the trio of honors was the May 2015 Member Cruise to Alaska, named the industry’s best Special Event.

“While winning awards isn’t our work’s purpose, we certainly appreciate these validations of our ongoing commitment to creating best-of-class destinations and experiences for the Member community we’re so proud to serve,” said Ken Potrock, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Vacation Club and Adventures by Disney. “What’s even more exciting for us than awards is the challenge of continuing to raise the bar for our Members as we move forward.”
