THE DISNEY VACATION CLUB AT DISNEY’S POLYNESIAN RESORT
Updated 9/2013–the scope of DVC at the Polynesian now seems much narrower than originally reported.
Disney Vacation Club studios and villas are two things at the same time:
- Spaces available as time-shares to members of the Disney Vacation Club, and
- The exact same spaces reservable for cash for a night or ten to anyone, just like any other rooms at Walt Disney World.
Disney Vacation Club One and Two-Bedroom Villas, in particular, are a very comfortable way to visit Walt Disney World without having to pay the price of a suite.
His original reporting had a couple of new five story buildings being added, one in the Luau Cove area and the other where Rapa Nui is now, Tahiti being converted, and stand-alone Grand Villas added along the beach. A new pool would have been added between Tokelau and the eastern side of the resort.
The image below is based on that original reporting.
Plans seem to have changed.
The two new buildings seem off–or at least delayed–and also no longer being discussed is the new pool. The Grand Villa plans and Tahiti conversion are still on, and it’s unclear at this moment what will happen to Rapa Nui.
I’ll keep you posted as I learn more from Steve!
