Excitement is building among Disney Vacation Club Members and many soon to be Members with the upcoming opening of the latest DVC Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows!
The new Polynesian Villas & Bungalows presents an all new room design to the Disney Vacation Club family. Set out over the water of the Seven Seas Lagoon, there are 20 Bora Bora Bungalows which sleep up to eight guests with two bathrooms, a full kitchen and a living and dining area. To really guests a taste of luxury, each bungalow has a private deck complete with plunge pool where guests are treated to a nightly view of Wishes and the Electrical Water Pageant. A private sound system allows for the soundtrack to be heard right on the deck!
Unlike other DVC properties, the Polynesian Villas on the “mainland” will consist only of Deluxe Studios. In a new design however, the studios will be connecting. Each studio will have two bathrooms and a fold down bunk, allowing them to comfortably sleep up to 5 guests. When connected, two studios will sleep up to 10 guests! One bathroom will be a full bath with a tub, while the second bath will have a shower. Each room will feature a kitchenette, but since there are no 1 or 2 bedroom villas, none of the rooms will feature a full kitchen or in-room laundry. While this is a drawback for some, being able to sleep up to 10 guests will offer more flexibility for some families
Sales began for current Disney Vacation Club Members on January 12, 2015, and opened up to the general public on February 9th. The first phase of the resort will open on April 1, 2015, and Members who purchase at the Polynesian are able begin booking on February 11th. All other DVC Members may book, up to 7 months in advance, beginning February 25th. I for one, will be saving my points for a stay at the new Polynesian Villas and Bungalows!
