This is the weekly news, rumors and refurbishments update for Walt Disney World for the week of January 4, 2015.
Here are the three biggest updates from around the resort for the past seven days.
1. Sales begin for Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is adding 360 Deluxe Studios and 20 Bora Bora Bungalows as part of Disney Vacation Club. Sales for the villas and bungalows begin on January 12, 2015 for Disney Vacation Club Members. Sales begin on February 9, 2015 for all other guests. The first phase of opening begins on April 1, 2015.
Pricing for the Bungalows is a common question. For non Disney Vacation Club members, the Bora Bora Bungalows are expected to go on sale between $2100 and $2900 per night, depending on the season.
Disney also released new concept art for the refurbished main pool. The volcano has been replaced with a more mountainous structure.
