in Disney, Featured, Hotel, Walt Disney World

This week Walt Disney World has begun sales of the newest Disney Vacation Club offerings, the Polynesian Villas and Bungalows.

While the actual rooms and bungalows are still under construction at the Polynesian Village Resort, Disney has set up and opened a model room for the new Deluxe Studios, which will be the largest available at Walt Disney World when they open beginning April 1.

Take a first look around the Deluxe Studio model room, which can sleep up to five guests and includes a split bathroom (similar to Disney Cruise Line) and kitchenette with microwave and small refrigerator.

The look of the new 447-sq-ft rooms very much mirrors the newer dark appearance of standard Polynesian guest rooms, combining a modern / contemporary look with an island feel, but with some lighter accent colors. Disney’s famous attention to detail continues throughout each room, with bathroom tile inlays among the nicer touches along with Mary Blair inspired artwork and Hidden Mickeys in the carpet. A fold-down bed features imagery of Lilo and Stitch while a lamp sports the famous Polynesian hotel tiki icon. All Deluxe Studio rooms can connect to another, opening up to twice the size.

Deluxe studio cost range is 16-20 points per night during lighter times of year and 36-42 points per night during the more crowded seasons. In dollars, that’s $439-$586 and $686-$878, respectively.

Prices vary depending on the view, standard or lake view. Ultimately there will be 360 studios available when they are all complete. (A full price breakdown can be seen at the bottom of this post.)

These rooms are now on sale as of today for Disney Vacation Club members, with all other guests being able to book a room beginning Feb. 9.

The 1,093-sq-ft Bora Bora Bungalows are still very much under wraps, as Disney plans to unveil them in April. These highly exclusive 20 bungalows will be set on the Polynesian Village Resort beach overlooking the Seven Seas Lagoon and Magic Kingdom in the distance, each including a private plunge pool that has a speaker piping in fireworks music each night.

The cost for a Bora Bora Bungalow ranges from 115 to 227 points per night, or $2,137 to $3040 per night.

Check back in the coming weeks for more details on the Bungalows.
