Disney Vacation Club (DVC) has announced plans to develop new Disney Vacation Club villas at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

Since 2015, the 380 DVC villas at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows have been a favorite for DVC members visiting Walt Disney World and include the largest deluxe studios at any Walt Disney World DVC resort and two-bedroom Bora Bora Bungalows over the Seven Seas Lagoon – the first of their kind at Disney. The new Disney Vacation Club villas, located on the lagoon’s shore, would complement the existing resort and provide views of the Magic Kingdom, as well as new recreation and dining options; however, the announcement of this new building confirms the Spirit of Aloha show will not be reopening.

“It’s no secret that our Members and Guests love the monorail resorts at Walt Disney World,” said DVC Senior Vice President and General Manager Bill Diercksen. “Expanding our Disney Vacation Club offerings at the Polynesian would give our Members and Guests yet another incredible option for staying close to the magic while making vacation memories that last a lifetime.”

Inspired by early concepts for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort – and projected to open in late 2024 – the addition will honor the past while advancing the resort’s story. This new DVC project also seems to be a replacement for the nature-inspired Reflections Lakeside Lodge that was announced during Bob Chapek’s 2018 Destination D presentation.
