We now have our first look at what the rooms look like inside the new DVC tower at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. Check out the pictures and let us know what you think!

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!

Not long ago, we finally got some more information on the tower which will face the Seven Seas Lagoon and Magic Kingdom

This DVC tower has an official name: Island Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. It is projected to open on December 17, 2024.

Island Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows will feature a variety of room types that will sleep from two to nine guests, including duo studios, spacious one- and two-bedroom villas and brand-new two-bedroom penthouse villas. Many rooms will feature spectacular views.

BTW, I agree with Joyce and wish Disney could have found a way to retain the Luau. That was a very entertaining and educational dinner show. Any chance they can or will bring it back? There is still lots of land between the Polynesian and the Grand Floridian.

These rooms look nice to me. I am very interested in exploring the "theming" in greater detail. One nice thing about the DVC studios elsewhere in the Polynesian resort is they were rather spacious. I am also interested in seeing the final exterior including the landscaping. I am hoping they can enhance the original "Marriott" look (nothing against Marriott. I stay there often, just not for a Disney themed hotel) into something more Polynesian, like you see at Aulani. Our family does need 1 and 2 br Villas, in addition to the studios, depending on travel party. Since the Polynesian is one of our home resorts, we will be booking in the tower from time to time. We love the DVC studios at the Polynesian currently.

It is very upsetting that Disney built this Tower, which ruins the beauty of the main hotel. Removing the Luau is another disappointment especially seeing the building that replaced it. Now to see the rooms - what a waste! The first few photos show cramped rooms. Nothing inviting. The last room looked more like a business conference room. If Disney is trying to advertise these photos as inviting for families - they miscalculated as badly as they did with their Star Wars Hotel.
