As confirmed at Disney Vacation Club’s annual condo meeting, the new Polynesian Tower is planned to be part of the existing condo association that oversees the current Polynesian Villas & Bungalows.
This is great news for existing owners as it will provide more room categories and help alleviate the ongoing room availability issues.
What do we know about the Polynesian Tower? Well, not much! The expansion is slated to open in late 2024 with not many details provided to us yet. We know there will be a variety of guest room types (like 1 and 2 bedroom villas), new recreation offerings, and new dining options. Permits filed with Orange County have revealed that room types will include Duo Studios, Standard Studios, 1-Bedroom Villas, dedicated 2-Bedroom Villas, and lock-off 2-Bedroom Villas. This is a huge update, considering the current DVC Polynesian buildings only contain studios, with the alternative option for larger families being the overwater Bungalows.
“It’s no secret that our Members and Guests love the monorail resorts at Walt Disney World,” said Bill Diercksen, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club, in a statement. “Expanding our Disney Vacation Club offerings at the Polynesian would give our Members and Guests yet another incredible option for staying close to the magic while making vacation memories that last a lifetime.”
