News About Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows

unnamedIt’s not big news that Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World has been undergoing an exciting re-imagining project. If you have been to the Polynesian in the past few months, it has been pretty obvious.  However, today, Disney released some exciting news about Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows.

The resort will include 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. Plus, the new Disney Vacation Club bungalows are 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.

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 for convenience and comfort.

And, like all Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, rooms at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows are available for rent when not in use by Disney Vacation Club Members, however there will be limited availability for the bungalows.

The additions are part of an overall renovation of the iconic resort hotel. A re-imagined Great Ceremonial House will welcome you to a tropical destination where Disney magic meets South Seas hospitality. When complete, the resort will also include an enhanced feature pool, new food and beverage offerings, including Pineapple Lanai where you can get the fan-favorite Dole Whip, and a new Trader Sam’s Tiki lounge that will feature exotic cocktails and Polynesian-themed small plates.

The first phase of Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows is scheduled to open in 2015. Stay tuned for more information!
