For The First Time Ever, Disney Vacation Club is Opening Polynesian Bungalows, Wilderness Lodge Cabins, and Grand Villas to All Guests for Tours

The world has changed quite a bit this year, and with the evolution of the theme park experience to match the needs of people, the Disney Vacation Club is completely revamping the way it does business as well.

New “Welcome Home” door hangers ask guests to maintain distancing and wear masks at Open House events.

Prior to the shutdown, DVC cast members could be found at dozens of sales kiosks in the theme parks, resorts, Disney Springs, and seemingly in the most unexpected of places at times. With their staffing reduced and occupancy in the many Disney Vacation Club resort hotels at an all-time low, DVC has found a pretty creative way to sell you on “Disney’s Best Kept Secret”.

Now, guests are welcome to come visit a DVC Open House at select resorts, allowing them unprecedented access to not models, but the actual rooms themselves at each resort. This was not often possible in the past due to high demand to stay in these lodgings.

We got to check out a Cascade Cabin while staying at Boulder Ridge this week. I had always wanted to see the inside of one of these and this was a great opportunity to do so.

While staying at the Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge this week, we received a phone call in our hotel room that a Cascade Cabin was open for us to visit. Having always wanted to see one of these, we leapt at the opportunity. While touring the DVC hostess also informed us of opportunities to tour other 2-bedroom rooms and grand villas across all of Walt Disney World property.

If you’re staying at one of the Resorts listed below, you can stop by an Open House at your Resort from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Monday to Friday—with no need to call in advance. However, if you’re not staying at one of the Resorts below, please call (407) 827-4744 to check availability and schedule your visit.

Here are the rooms available to tour (they may have more rooms available, so if there’s something in particular you want to see, just ask):

Yes this was really cool to experience when we went in July. We stayed for the weekend to go to universal and the last night I wanted to stay at Bay Lake Tower and we just spent the whole day doing these walk throughs. Rooms were all amazing to see especially since I’ll probably never actually stay in one. lol

We toured the Poly bungalow and the Grand Floridian 2 and 3 bedroom grand villa yesterday. Nice to get a peak inside at these beautiful places.
