A couple years ago Disney announced the new DVC tower at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. The 3 current DVC buildings at the resort were converted from regular “cash” accommodations back in 2015.

The Polynesian is a very popular resort, and because there is such a small supply of DVC rooms, the demand is pretty high.

In addition to a soft goods refurbishment that took place a couple years ago, Disney is adding a 10-story tower which will include a larger variety of rooms. Currently, only studios and bungalows are available for DVC. I am excited for 1- and 2- bedroom villas as well!

New Details

Disney shares one of the original concepts for the Polynesian included a tower, and now Imagineers are completing that early vision. Many have complained that a tower doesn’t suite the Poly well. It’s interesting that Imagineers back in the early 1970s included one.

This DVC tower has an official name: Island Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. It is still projected to open in December 2024.

When you arrive at Island Tower, you will notice beautiful designs created exclusively for the exterior, including a gorgeous Manta Ray that symbolizes freedom, protection and grace.

Inside the lobby, you will be greeted by an art panel installation on the ceiling inspired by several Polynesian Islands, showcasing wildlife native to each locale. Each animal holds a strong connection to the islands and symbolizes values important to Polynesians.
