DVC Accommodations

Recently, significant changes have been in the works for many Disney deluxe resorts and Disney Vacation Club accommodations. We’ve previously covered the new resort studios at the Grand Floridian and the newly updated cash and DVC rooms at the Polynesian.

Additionally, we’ve shared the announcement of a new Disney Vacation Club tower coming to Disney’s Polynesian Resort. This announcement came with the news that a favorite dinner show, Spirit of Aloha, would be canceled.

Today, we have new information regarding the Polynesian’s newest addition.

Polynesian Tower

Disney has a permit filed with the state of Florida detailing construction plans for this site. The proposed building shape is included, along with a proposed pool space and a water activity pool.

This tweet shows the permit details and sketches.

Details from the permit also demonstrate that no additional monorail station will be added in the location of this tower addition. This seems to imply that guests will use the monorail station located in the Great Ceremonial House.

The addition of this tower has not come without controversy. As the Polynesian is a very popular resort, it makes a lot of sense that Disney would like to increase capacity by adding additional DVC room inventory. Currently, the Polynesian only has studio and bungalow accommodations as part of its DVC inventory. There are hopes that this new tower could include one-bedroom and two-bedroom options for larger families.

This new addition, however, does mean that the Spirit of Aloha show will close permanently, which is unwelcome news for Polynesian fans. A luau show has been part of the offerings at the Polynesian since its opening, along with the Magic Kingdom and Contemporary Resort, in 1971.
