Disney declares more inventory for the Polynesian Villas & Bungalows

On March 8, 2017, Disney Vacation Development declared 10 Residential Units containing 48 studios for the Disney Vacation Club inventory at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. These Residential Units are represented by 473,376 points. Physically, the 48 studios are located on the second floor of the Tokelau Longhouse.

Including this latest declaration, 16 bungalows and 312 studios have now been added to the DVC inventory. This accounts for 3,460,724 points, or 85.8% of the Polynesian’s 4,032,720 total points. There are four bungalows and 48 studios that have not yet been declared for the DVC inventory.

This declaration gives DVC members access to more rooms at the Polynesian. For every Use Day, 85.8% of the resort can be booked using DVC points; the remaining 14.2% is still owned and controlled by Disney, which can use it for cash reservations or other ways it desires.

When fully declared, the Polynesian will include 20 bungalows and 360 studios.

This is the fourth declaration made by Disney for the Polynesian. The first declaration was on January 7, 2015 before sales began and included about 40.7% of the resort. The second declaration was on January 25, 2016 and increased the DVC inventory to 62.9% of the complete resort. The third declaration was on October 17, 2016 and brought the DVC inventory to 74.1%.

Such staggered declarations are typical for DVC resorts. Disney must first declare the inventory for the DVC condominium association before it can sell the underlying points to the general public. Thus, the frequency and the size of declarations are tied to how quickly a resort is selling. Disney recently started sales for Copper Creek Villas & Cabins, the newest DVC resort, and declared 48 of the resort’s 184 vacation homes for the DVC inventory. As it sells more points for Copper Creek, additional declarations will be made for that resort.

The last two declarations were only 6 months apart, perhaps PVB is really getting closer to a sell out. I guess it will depend on how PVB sales are affected by CCVs sales.

Nice timing for members with DVD adding more points at the Poly. I hope it helps someone get a reservation for Food & Wine or even an early December date. Although looking at the Reservation Availability Tool (RAT), it appears that some PVB dates are not available in October, November, December and for Marathon Weekend in early January 2018.

Looking at it, the difference is nearly 11.5% of the total points in that six months (74.1% -> 85.8%). So that does put PVB on track to have 97-98% of the total points within six months then. So that is in-line with being 'sold-out' before the end of the year, and possible just a little earlier. Again, it really comes down to how PVB and CCV interact and how representative those last six months are.

I thought when Dvc came into Poly they took over the 3 builds Pago,Moorea and Tokelau. I was not aware that it was only certain floors. Hey you learn something new every day. :thumbsup2:

They took over all of those three longhouses. It's just that this particular declaration happens to be for units on the 2nd floor of one longhouse.
