New Disney Resort Announced: Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows

As much as some people despise Disney, and don’t like to visit, I enjoy the magic of Mickey, and one day look forward to purchasing a Disney Vacation Club membership.

In the meantime, I enjoy staying in Disney’s Vacation Club Resorts, which are much nicer than the moderate or value resorts they offer. I think the deluxe resorts offer value for what’s provided, and the experience is substantially different than its cheaper counterparts on the same property.

Today, Disney released details on their new resort: Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows, set to open in 2015. I’m looking forward to staying here, and am already in the process of planning a short trip to the land of Mickey next year.


 

From Disney’s Press Release:

We hope you are getting as excited as we are about the next Disney Vacation Club Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows! Today, we released new details about the resort, which will open phase one in 2015. We are making history with the debut of the first Disney Bungalows. These beautiful accommodations are directly on Seven Seas Lagoon and will sleep up to eight guests and feature a plunge pool that offers views of fireworks over Magic Kingdom Park.

Adding to the excitement, we are opening 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, the first time we have done this at a Disney Vacation Club Resort. 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 space for convenience and comfort.

The addition of Disney Vacation Club to this beloved resort is part of an overall renovation of the iconic resort hotel. A re-imagined Great Ceremonial House will welcome guests to a tropical destination where Disney magic meets South Seas hospitality. Also included is an enhanced feature pool and new food and beverage offerings, including Pineapple Lanai where Members and guests can get their favorite Dole Whip treats and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, which will feature exotic cocktails and Polynesian-themed small plates. Earlier this year, the resort opened a brand-new children’s activity center called Lilo’s Playhouse.
