Disney Vacation Club Points for the Polynesian Villas and Bungalows go on sale for members on January 12, 2015. All guests will be able to purchase points beginning February 9th.
The 1st Phase (opening April 1, 2015) will include the Bora Bora Bungalows on the Seven Seas Lagoon and the first connecting Deluxe Studios.
The 20 Bungalows will sleep up to 8 guests in a two-bedroom villa. The Deluxe Studios will sleep 5 guests. The Bungalows have two full bathrooms, a kitchen, washer and dryer, and large dining and living room spaces for gatherings.
Private decks will feature a plunge pool where Members and guests can view fireworks over the Magic Kingdom, complete with the soundtrack that can be heard through an individual sound system. They will also have front-row seats to the Electrical Water Pageant, a playful nighttime water parade in the Seven Seas Lagoon.
The new resort also includes 360 Deluxe Studio Villas, the largest at the Walt Disney World Resort. These villas sleep up to five guests each and feature a kitchenette, enhanced storage space for convenience and comfort, and two separate bathroom areas, one a full bathroom with a tub/shower and another one with a shower and sink, allowing more people to get ready at one time. A pull-down armoire bed showcases painted artwork from the popular Disney film, Lilo & Stitch.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, where Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows is located, began a multi-year reimagining project in 2014. This year, the resort will debut dramatically enhanced feature and leisure pools, as well as a new children’s water play area for Members and guests to enjoy. Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is also slated to open and, like Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland Resort, will feature exotic cocktails and Polynesian-themed small plates in an imaginative setting only Disney could create. Last year, new additions included Pineapple Lanai, a beverage stand that offers popular Dole Whip treats, and Lilo’s Playhouse, a whimsical activity center where young guests can enjoyed supervised play while their parents spend quality time out on the town.
