Well, with all the current DVCs, your parents can book what's called a cash reservation, just as they would a non-DVC room, without owning DVC. They could also rent points. I hope you get to stay there someday and don't forget to post a BTR (Bungalow Trip Report not Big Thunder Railroad)

I can do sinister, but with your scenario, I could never book a cash reservation, but I could get close to one in my Sea Raycer when I come over from WL and CR...

And a HOT Tub or two would be nice.

You can ALWAYS book a cash reservation - just as you can at any DVC resort. My scenario is the only people that can use DVC POINTS to book are direct-purchase members.

I added a link to the first post. Here is the link I added that has the transcript of exactly what Pete Werner said about the bungalows on the DisUnplugged on 4/2:

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.

I don't understand it either. The whole appeal of over-the-water bungalows are the see-through glass floors revealing the sparkling clear water below and the ability to jump right into the water. I'm not really sure of the appeal to the bungalows over just staying in a theme park view club level room. Both have a view of the same thing. Privacy? I guess. I would think it would be less private with a large ferry and numerous Friendship boats tooting their horns and carrying hundreds of guests by, the hoards of people on the beach before the Electric Water Parade/fireworks, and the rented boats whizzing past.

I am all for Poly DVC, though. I can only rent OKW, BLT, and AKV points for so long!

I also have stayed in an over the water bungalow in Tahiti (island of Moorea though) and the big draw was the 'swim' up portion and the clear blue water where you could see the fish and sand. The lagoon does not have any of that - currently. But if they are short on real estate, going over the water is a way to increase their available space for hotel rooms.

And I'm sure many on this thread already know this, but it appears this is part of a bigger project for the Poly including renovations to the ceremonial house, pool, and more DVC rooms. Of course, it is ALWAYS rumors with Disney up until they announce something officially. When they were building GF DVC, I asked a waitress at Mizner's if it was DVC (before the official announcement came) and she said, "What construction?" Well, she certainly had the Disney programming in her!

Even when Disney announces a project, there is a very good chance it will be cancelled any time up until construction actually begins.
