Renée sent us some great pictures of the new Polynesian Villas and Bungalows that will be opening at the Polynesian at WDW very soon.
The new DVC property looks simply amazing. Enjoy!!
Here are some photos from the new DVC area of the Polynesian Resort at WDW. It is still under construction but phase one is scheduled to open April 1.
The porch or balcony of the new DVC rooms overlook the bungalows.
We viewed deluxe studio rooms in the Moorea wing. They feature one queen size bed, one queen size sleeper sofa and one pull down bunk-size bed.
Each Bungalow has flat panel TV, private porch or balcony, wet bar, small fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker
Bathroom is separated by two areas - one with shower and sink and one with toilet and tub/shower combo.
Over the water bora bora bungalows feature one king size bed, one queen size bed, one queen size sleeper, and two pull down bunk size beds.
Master bathroom has in-mirror TV, whirlpool tub and walk in shower with rain shower head.
Full kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, oven, microwave, and laundry area with stacked washer and dryer.
Private deck of each Bungalow features a plunge pool, lounge furniture and hanging chairs overlooking Seven Seas Lagoon and Magic Kingdom.
Second bathroom is two sections - tub/shower and vanity, and toilet and vanity.

Thanks to good friend of the site Chris (who I've known for probably 20 years now) we have a surprise Disneyland update for you this week.
We'll take a look at some of the work being done to get ready for the 60th, the off-season refurbishments and Frozen Fun!!!

Spring has definitely sprung at Disneyland. And as of this article it's technically still "winter" in Southern California.
An empty Main Street USA. Don't see this very often these days.
How you doing Walt.
So the Disneyland Castle recently got some work done for the 60th and has emerged from under it's tarps.
Peter Pan's Flight is closed for refurbishment and plussing of the show, similar to what Alice in Wonderland received. So it's gonna be pretty awesome.
King Arthur Carrousel
Mad Tea Party
Critter Country is also closed for refurbishment. All of it.
So here's that Frozen Fun thing you've heard all about. I don't get it, but get used to it as Frozen 2 was just announced today at the Disney Stockholder Meeting.
But seriously, if you had the ability to pretty much print your own money, you'd do it too. And the kids love it, my kids would if they were younger and as a stockholder I can't hate it that much.
Lastly, I wasn't going to show any pictures of Chris' family vacation, and certainly not his awesome kids, but this one I wanted to share ... because this is really what it's all about. The perfect Disney moment. I think a lot of people forget that, even us to a certain extent.
Alright, that's going to wrap it up for this look at Disneyland. Thanks again to Chris for the pictures, they are MUCH appreciated.
And remember, if you'd ever like to share any park pictures with us, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as we'd love to share them. Full credit is ALWAYS given around here. =)
This morning on Good Morning America, Disney announced an all new 24 hour party at both Magic Kingdom and Disneyland as well as Frozen Fun making it's way to Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida.
Details of the announcement from The Disney Blog are below.
As you may have seen on ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America,” we shared some true Disney magic in winter-weary Boston by creating a warm summer scene, inspired by Olaf’s “In Summer” dream, to officially announce that the “Coolest Summer Ever” is coming to the Walt Disney World Resort. And it all begins with a Disney Parks Blog reader favorite – a 24-hour event at Magic Kingdom Park – during Memorial Day weekend, the traditional kickoff to summer.
Olaf, who is the official host of our “Coolest Summer Ever,” surprised Bostonians near historic Faneuil Hall with a 20-foot wide beach that included a Cinderella Castle made of sand, beach chairs, beach balls and other reminders of summer fun at Walt Disney World Resort. Check out how it all came together in the video below.
We’re kicking off the summer with an all-night party at the Walt Disney World Resort. Magic Kingdom Park will be open to guests for 24 hours of nonstop fun from 6 a.m.-6 a.m. May 22-23. Guests are invited to dress to show their Disney Side while a selection of favorite attractions, entertainment, merchandise, food and beverages will be on tap all night long to celebrate the start of the “Coolest Summer Ever” at Walt Disney World Resort.
For the “Coolest Summer Ever,” we’re already planning experiences you won’t want to miss. Here’s an early look at some of the highlights:
Also, later this morning, Erin will be sharing a special announcement from Disneyland Resort right here on the blog.
EDITORS NOTE: The announcement later today is rumored to be a 24 hour party at Disneyland on May 22-23. That's completely original and TOTALLY unexpected.
It's time to for Disney to surprise us again. There's nothing remotely original or exciting about these announcements. We will update later when the Disneyland announcement is made.
