POLYNESIAN Resort Adding BUNGALOWS

Pete Werner just announced on the DisUnplugged Live that 20 'bungalows' of one and two bedrooms each are going to be built starting this year at the Poly. They will extend out into the water and be accessed via a dock. The assumption is that these will be DVC.



Here is the link to a DVC article with the transcript of the DisUnplugged bungalow comment made by Pete Werner:

I think it sounds positively dreamy.

One day, hopefully, "Poly DVC" will be in my list of trips below.....

I was lucky enough to stay in an overwater Bungalow in Bora Bora for my honeymoon some time ago, and its really a great and unique experience. We also stayed at 9 Beaches in Bermuda in a bungalow and loved it. I think its a nice & fitting touch, especially for Disney Honeymooners, but I'm sure it will be really expensive and hard to get at the Poly. They are already overpriced, but heck you are paying for amenities like the monorail. I would definitely pay for an overwater bungalow, but I think I'd save my money for a bungalow in another destination...where the water is blue.

This will make the Longhouses seem like a bargain

Just a guess here, but I'd put them more in line with GFV pricing +

If it is, blame Pete Werner, AKA, WebmasterPete, your Grand Administrator.
