Embrace the tranquil spirit of the South Pacific at an oasis of tropical palms, flickering Tiki torches and white-sand beaches. Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows makes its home at one of the original—and perhaps most legendary—Walt Disney World Resorts. Discover anew the signature ambience that's made Disney's Polynesian Village Resort a favorite Disney destination since 1971.
The first phase of completion of Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, the newest Disney Vacation Club Resort, is scheduled in Spring 2015. Now Guests can experience this storied Resort as a Disney Vacation Club Member and enjoy spacious, stylish accommodations—including unique, over-the-water bungalows. Start experiencing unforgettable vacations here and enjoy the original island escape, reimagined.
The renewal of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort reaffirms Walt Disney's enduring fantasy of the South Pacific: a tropical heaven-on-earth that is always just over the horizon. This re-imagined island-themed paradise is filled with touches of Disney magic. Torches light the way and soft breezes rustle the palm fronds surrounding the lapping waters of Seven Seas Lagoon. Exotic libations, delectable island dishes and traditional songs inspire Guests to unwind in an idyllic world of fantasy. Walt Disney loved Polynesian culture, and the Resort was originally envisioned as a continuation of Adventureland area at Magic Kingdom Park.
The experience begins as Guests approach the Disney Vacation Club longhouses of Tokelau, Moorea and Pago Pago. Step under a porte cochere entry that reflects traditional Polynesian roof architecture, with its distinctive prows and exposed framing. Lobby areas feature sleek, Mid-Century Modern design and furnishings. Fabrics and other decorative accents provide attractive pops of color against the dramatic lava rock wall—complementing the natural finishes throughout the Resort.
Cast Members celebrate the spirit of Aloha, a culture of friendship rooted in Polynesian tradition each day at the Resort. Every Guest is welcomed into the ʻohana, or family, as cherished cousins. As ambassadors of Polynesian traditions and heritage, Cast Members are Mea Ho'okipa, which means they welcome Guests with unconditional warmth and generosity and strive to embody the spirit of Kina'ole—a devotion to excellence. Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows invites Guests to embrace the culture of Ho'Onanea, by relishing the passing of time in relaxed tranquility. Experience the captivating sights, sounds and culture of Polynesia at this enchanting lakeside Resort.
