Disney Vacation Club to Expand to Include the Polynesian Resort

aloha

Hi ya everybody! It’s your friend Anonymouse here to share the latest Disney gossip with you!

Today, I have some exciting news to share with you about the Disney Vacation Club. The Disney Vacation Club will be expanding to include Disney’s Polynesian Resort! Construction on the Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Polynesian Resort is expected to begin by the end of the year. It may be completed by 2017, but no one seems to know for sure! Disney Vacation Club will be adding 20 bungalows on the beach or over the water at Disney’s Polynesian Resort!

Here is the word from the World Famous Tikiman.

For the longest time the resort CMs and managers were telling me DVC was looked at and decided it was not possible. Even today you will get CMs that say there is no way DVC is going to happen. Well I think we all know DVC is going and it will be done in multiple phases. Now as we know timing and details can change with Disney so some of this might end up different but I will tell you what I know as of now.

The GCH we already know has to be fixed and redone. They said in the layout that the center water feature was gone from the design but I have not been told what is in its place yet. 
Looking from an aerial view of the resort it will have phase one expanding towards the Wedding Pavilion with a T shaped building where Luau cove is now. The top of the T will be parallel to the beach and the building will be 5 stories tall. It will be DVC rooms.

The next phase will remove Rapa Nui and the parking lot next to it and put in another 5 story T shaped building with the top of the T facing away from the beach and towards Shades of Green. Tahiti will remain in front of it and will be turned into DVC. The area where the Tangaroa Terrace and the garden area between Tahiti, Rapa Nui and Tokelau will become a new pool area with lazy river modeled after the one at Aulani.

In addition 15 over the water (like in Tahiti) huts will be built off the beach of Tahiti and will be grand villas. They will each have their own docks from the beach.

It looks like the remaining longhouses will remain the way they are with a new room design. I am sure there will be more details but that is the grand scheme that they have planned right now.”

Although Disney has not made the official announcement you can bet that the expansion is coming, just like at the Grand Floridian.

  1. The Poly is our home away from home. I dont know about redoing the whole GCH and taking out the flower and rock center piece. My family takes a picture in front of that beautiful setting every year when we go and its so cool to see how we all have grown from the previous years. I hope they can keep the theme of the original poly with some new updates, but not turn it into the new Aulani.

  2. This makes becoming a DVC member even more tempting. My good friends have been trying to get me to join for years!

  3. I think it’ll be fun to stay at, but aren’t they in need of rehab at the main resort? Or still in the process? If they build out over the water, where will people watch Wishes if it takes up the beach? I’m a little torn in that respect. Let’s hope it inspires them to open another delicious restaurant!

  4. its fine they want to add dvc rooms but what about new attractions to bring people into Disney and stay in the world like redo of imaginations in epcot
