Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows

7 in 7: Seven Disney World Resorts in Seven Days


Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows Overview

Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows include the Bora Bora Bungalows and the Deluxe Studios.

The villas are part of the Disney Vacation Club or DVC (as it is known). Disney Vacation Club is Disney’s version of a timeshare. Instead of purchasing a particular ‘week’ (as is customary with many timeshares), you purchase points. Points can than be used at any of Disney’s vacation club properties. The number of points needed for a particular stay depends on the type of room (studio, one bedroom, two bedroom, etc), and the time of year.

There are a few things that make this particular DVC property special. First, are the Deluxe Studios - at 460 sq. ft. they are the largest studios that DVC has built. There are 360 Deluxe Studios that sleep five and can connect to a neighboring room. Each has a split bathroom, one with a shower and sink and one with a sink and tub/shower. There is also kitchenettes in the units and a pull-down armoire bed that features Lilo and Stitch artwork. The studios are located in the Rapa Nui, Tokelau, and Tahiti longhouses.

Another unique feature of this expansion are the Bora Bora Bungalows. The name is derived from the popular (and expensive) over-water bungalows that can be found on the south pacific island of Bora Bora. There are 20 of the 1650 sq. ft. bungalows, each with two full bathrooms, a kitchen, in-unit laundry facilities, a living room and dining room. Reminiscent of the South Pacific, the area is surrounded by the Seven Seas Lagoon and will have a view of the Magic Kingdom’s fireworks. Private decks with personal plunge pools allow guests to watch the fireworks while listening to the accompanying music piped in on individual sound systems. The Electric Water Pageant can also be viewed from the bungalows.

All of the DVC units are available for rent when not reserved by Disney Vacation Club Members.
