On the heels of a successful expansion of DVC Villas at Grand Floridian, Disney Vacation Club is back at it again with new details of a DVC tower coming to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
The property may potentially be built in the same location as Spirit of Aloha, which was recently announced to have permanently closed. Some speculate that the show closed specifically to make room for this new project, but only time will tell if that is true.
In regards to the upcoming project Bill Diercksen, senior vice president and general manager of DVC, had this to say:
It’s no secret that our Members and Guests love the monorail resorts at Walt Disney World. 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.Senior VP of DVC, Bill Diercksen
Although many details have not been released at this time beyond the concept art, Disney did drop a few hints at what to expect in a press release.
Orlando, FL (March 15, 2022) – Today, Disney Vacation Club announced proposed plans to develop new Disney Vacation Club villas at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
It’s no secret that our Members and Guests love the monorail resorts at Walt Disney World,” said Bill Diercksen, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club. “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 the early concepts for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, the Imagineers of today are honoring the past while furthering the resort story with this innovative addition. Projected to open in late 2024, the proposed vacation ownership property would complement the existing resort and evoke the spirit of the Pacific Islands.
Situated on the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon, the proposed property would join the rest of the resort in offering stunning views of the Magic Kingdom. Proposed plans would offer additional rooms, new recreation offerings and dining options. More information and project details will be shared at a later date.
Since 2015, Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows has been a favorite resort destination, offering an island paradise in the middle of the magic. Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows currently has 380 Disney Vacation Club villas, including the largest Deluxe Studios at any Disney Vacation Club resort at Walt Disney World and unique two-bedroom Bora Bora Bungalows, located over the waters of the Seven Seas Lagoon – the first of their kind at Disney.
The new villas and the increased capacity will be a welcome addition at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort since it is by far one of Disney’s most popular resorts due to its proximity to the Magic Kingdom theme park and Monorail transportation. We cannot wait to see what else is to come in this development!

I am so excited about this. We love Poly, but never stay there since only studios and bungalows which are way to high in prices.
