As point sales continue at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, Disney Vacation Club has added another longhouse and additional bungalows to the timeshare inventory.
Before Disney Vacation Club can sell ownership in any physical unit at one of its facilities, it must legally add the dwelling to the timeshare program. Prior to the start of sales in early 2015, DVC added about 40% of the Polynesian villas to the timeshare program--all rooms in the Tokelau longhouse plus ten of the twenty waterfront bungalows.
Ongoing point sales necessitates adding more units to the timeshare inventory.
On January 27, 2016, Disney added the 74 Deluxe Studio villas in the Pago Pago longhouse and six more water top bungalows to the DVC program. This raises the declared percentage of the resort from 40% up to 60%.
In addition to giving DVC more points to sell, these declarations give owners access to more rooms at the resort.
Until now, reservations at the Polynesian were limited to rougly 144 Deluxe Studio villas and ten bungalows for every night. With the new units declared, owners can collectively reserve about 218 studios and 16 bungalows nightly.
When fully declared, Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows will include 360 Deluxe Studio villas and twenty bungalows.
