Relax at Disney Polynesian Village Resort & Bungalows

    Disney Polynesian Village Reort

    Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is being completely "re-imagined," with a new look, design and plenty of new accommodations.

    Located on the Seven Seas Lagoon and a quick monorail ride from Magic Kingdom Park, the resort’s South Pacific theme and polynesian culture makes for a memorable location for family vacations.

    With 360 deluxe studios, opening in phases during Summer 2015, and 20 over-the-water bungalows, Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows renovations have brought new life to the resort.

    The deluxe studios with tropical decor sleep five people. Each has a hidden pull-down bed and comes with the option to connect to an adjacent room for more space.

    The Bora Bora Bungalows have quickly become the showpiece of the upgrades. These two-bedroom, two-bath accommodations feature a view of the lagoon and Cinderella’s Castle in the distance.

    The bungalows also feature full kitchens, and each bedroom has its own flat-panel television, washer and dryer, two hidden-pull down beds and even a private plunge pool on the back patio.

    Polynesian Music, Snacks & Amenities

    For an extra touch of magic, the music from the Wishes fireworks display is piped into the back patio speakers.

    If you’re looking for a snack, stop by the resort’s new Pineapple Lanai for a tasty Dole Whip – a mixture of soft-serve ice cream and pineapple.

    The resort’s new Lava pool, opening soon, will feature an interactive kids area, perfect for cooling off after a day at the parks.

    Insider Tip: For a great view of the Magic Kingdom’s nightly fireworks, grab a tropical drink and enjoy the view from the patio of the new Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. It’s a great view with a great atmosphere.
