A Tour of a Bungalow at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows

A Tour of a Bungalow at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows

Check out a bungalow at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. As part of this month’s Blogorail Orange Loop, gain insight as the Blogorail Pilots share our reviews of the deluxe villa resorts at Walt Disney World.

As soon as I saw the plans for the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, I wanted to stay there. As a Disney Vacation Club member, I knew there was a possibility, but not a probability, so I was extremely excited when there was one available and I had enough points to stay there after our cruise a couple of months ago.

A Tour of a Bungalow at Disney's Polynesian Villas & BungalowsFirst was the walkway to get to the bungalow. While this is facing back toward Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, it was the best way to give an overall view of the walkway to the bungalows. I don’t know why, but I hadn’t given the trek to the bungalow a lot of thought prior to our stay. I say trek because it’s far. Thank goodness for a bellman! Also, at night, at least to me, it was a little bit creepy. The water was inky black and while the walkway was well lit, I didn’t like to walk it by myself. This shouldn’t deter anyone from staying there. Definitely not! I just wanted to share my experience because I bet others also hadn’t given this walkway a thought.

Again, something I hadn’t thought of, but the location of the bungalows does lend itself to being a perfect haven for the 8-legged critters. I saw a number of spider webs and one other little spider. Is anyone getting the feeling this isn’t starting out the way I planned? Once I relocated the spider, we were able to go inside, and , fortunately, that was the last of any negative surprises.

What you see in the photo is pretty much what you get other than a dresser and a television. The air conditioner in the back corner was not original. We received a phone call shortly before our stay letting us know that the main a/c unit was not working as well as it should so they added these. It was fine; very quiet and unobtrusive.

20160909_150606I finally made it to the rear of the bungalow where the main living area was. I like the open floor plan with the kitchen, dining, and living room as one big space. It meant that we could spend more family time. As you can see, the dining room table is large, seating 8.

20160909_150613Because our stay was so short, we didn’t really use the kitchen, but it seemed more than adequate for regular meals. We do often use the kitchens in the villas for longer stays, especially for breakfast. There was plenty of utensils and cookware.

20160909_150610The living room wasn’t that big, it didn’t even seat our party of five, but the seating could easily be supplemented with the chairs at the dining room table.

This is similar to the one in the bedroom. Personally, I appreciated the picture of the Electrical Water Pageant in the back. He not only slept there, but used it as his hangout whenever we were in the room.

Would I stay there again? Definitely, especially if it was a trip where I could spend a good amount of time enjoying the bungalow and Disney’s Polynesian Resort. It’s such a unique location and felt private even though it was in the middle of everything.

    I think that for sure, the bathroom and the view are my two favorite parts of the bungalows! I also love the electrical pageant artwork…my favorite. Sounds like an interesting stay. I don’t think I’ll ever have enough points to do it…but I still can dream!
