    Default DVC bungalows at the Polynesian?

    Pete Werner of the DIS Unplugged podcast started an interesting rumor this week regarding the next Disney Vacation Club destination.

    How many villas or vacation homes will be in a bungalow? If its only one vacation home per bungalow, it would make for a very small DVC condominium association. I know the bungalows are suppose to be built over the water, but I'm not sure a DVC resort with only 20 vacation homes can float.

    At first read this sounds very exciting but the more I think about it I don't know if it I like it. I love the idea of a Poly DVC but I could only imagine the number of points or OOP cost to stay in a bungalow.
    If you've ever seen the movie "Couples Retreat" they stay in these similar described bungalows over the water in Bora Bora (In the French Polynesian). Bora Bora is pretty much paradise with Clear water and ocean life everywhere. The bungalows are built over the water and are probably 1 or two bedrooms with walkouts in to the ocean, glass floors to see the fish and decks with hotubs. (After seeing the movie my wife and I looked up the resort and I think a bungalow ran 4-5000/night!!!)
    I can't imagine the 7 seas lagoon would offer a similar experience....
    If this is a DVC venture I'd rather see them pump the money and space into a full DVC resort.....

    Yeah, the South Pacific has crystal blue water, seven seas lagoon not so much. Plus, there would be the ferry boats going by all day.

    With only 20 bungalows I'm wondering if this would be the first time DVC actually would merge two condominium associations and make it a combined Poly/VGF. The clause is in all DVC declarations and I don't see why it couldn't apply to two DVC resorts. It would keep the cost down if they could share some of the expenses.

    Tikiman wrote on another forum that the Tahiti and Rapa Nui buildings are the only two not receiving the HA or king bed updates. He believes its possible those bulidings will become DVC.

    Since the bungalows are supposed to be built on the east side of the Poly towards the TTC (who knew there was room there for bungalows), it really wouldn't make sense to share a check in. And I'm now wondering if it would be impractical for the two to be combined since they are so far apart. If the bungalows had been on the other beach towards the luau they could have had the appearance of being two sections of one resort.

    Who wants to bet a buck that for at least another 10 years, Disney doesn't build anything but DVC resorts.

    They are looking looking at nothing more than the up front cash infussion.
