Immediately after the information broke Tuesday of the New Polynesian DVC Tower, I took a handful of minutes to acquire some quick ideas and initial reactions. We really do not have a lot of information and facts to go on hence significantly, but its usually enjoyable to speculate!
1) This Notion is a HomeRun
There is totally no doubt in brain by any means that this new Polynesian DVC Tower will carry out astonishingly nicely and be a perfect addition to the resort! All of Disney Vacation Club’s most current assignments of a equivalent character that have included DVC to an present vacation resort have been really productive (Ex. – Grand Floridian, Copper Creek, etcetera.).
2) Reflections 2.?
I can’t enable but consider they flipped the Reflections concept a little bit and moved it below. Formally, Disney seems to be declaring that inspiration is from the first Polynesian notion artwork from 1969, however, I kinda like to believe they showed a designer Reflections and the outdated Polynesian art and explained, “Can you kinda make this glimpse a small like this?” I have included images below for comparison and am curious to listen to your thoughts.

3) Derek DeBoer has New Lamps to Steal!
Our resident lamp skilled from DVC Resale Marketplace is tremendous energized by this new addition to the Polynesian simply because it suggests new lamps! He was just lately noticed eyeing up some rather large chandeliers at Grand Floridian.

4) We Will Be Scoping the Web page Out Shortly!
As you are examining this, Amy and I will likely be headed to Disney to see the product space for the new Grand Floridian Villas. We also program to take some movies and walk the spot the place this tower will be located. The tower will occupy room the place the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show as soon as resided, which was introduced to be forever closed. Be on the lookout for extra info quickly!
5) How A lot of Villas and What Type of Villas?
Making use of my really scientific measuring technique (counting in the photograph), I’m estimating about 200-300 new villas complete as element of this new addition to the Polynesian. Because they are setting up a little something entirely new, I anticipate them to squeeze as many rooms as possible into this room which is why I’m considering it will be on the better conclude of this variety. In Disney’s announcement, they all but verified that this tower will incorporate Deluxe Studio, 1-Bed room, 2-Bed room, and Grand Villas. I also wouldn’t rule out some Tower Studio villas (seem in the corner of the principle art), considering the fact that these have been included in each Riviera and the New Disneyland DVC Tower.

6) Will This Tower Be Part of the Present Condominium Affiliation?
Your guess is as excellent as mine, but my recent answer is no. This is exactly where Disney will either double down on their designs for DVC 2. and resale-constraints or kick the notion to the curb. Due to the fact we are conversing about a ton of infrastructure for this addition to the Polynesian like new swimming pools, dining establishments, and so on. (more on that later), my gut response is that we will see this be a independent affiliation very similar to Copper Creek and Boulder Ridge. Only time will inform!
7) What Will Be the Cost For every Stage?
Expect it to open aggressively with incentives. Grand Floridian taught us that although Disney likes funds, you’ve obtained to get people today to order it to make that income and as a result value matters at a reasonable amount. I would hope by the time the vacation resort goes on sale in early 2024 we will be in the vary of $225-$230pp for direct pricing if not greater.
8) Fireworks Views
In my impression, the Polynesian is one of the best spots on 7 Seas Lagoon to observe the fireworks from Magic Kingdom. Though Major of the Planet Lounge is a close second, Poly has a pretty straight-on check out of the castle, so the see from this tower should rival that or at minimum be on par with TOTWL.
9) New Pools, Eating, and Additional!
Talking of TOTWL, I’m hoping for a signature dining working experience at the leading and/or a bar or lounge related to that or California Grill. The thought art presented shows numerous points that could show new dining establishments or lounges so I anticipate at least two. We also seem to be obtaining a manufacturer new pool!

10) I’ll In all probability Be Obtaining Factors
My wife can use this as evidence in opposition to me in two decades, but I’m sold and would purchase an increase-on contract in this article. Although quite a few are calling this “The Marriott at Disney’s Polynesian Resort“, I have generally felt that the Poly has wanted a little bit of a new fashionable vibe to the resort and am super energized to see this notion build! I much better start saving… #AddOnItis #PointsAreFun
