Full Tour of a Stunning Bora Bora Bungalow at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Join us for a room tour of a stunning Bora Bora Bungalow at the Disney Vacation Club at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World.

Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows are part of the mid-century tropical resort, which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary alongside Walt Disney World. The bungalows are available as part of the Disney Vacation Club, and with so few, they are a rare find. We were lucky enough to stay in one and have a full photo and video tour to share.

If you have seen inside these Bungalows before, you will notice they have been updated relatively recently.

In the entryway, there is a nice wooden table with a catch-all bowl and an occupied sign for the door. The blue accent colors with the darker wood encapture the tropical aesthetic.

Above the table is a beautiful art piece featuring the bungalows and a ship sailing in the water. The end table and ceiling lamp demonstrate how the bungalows artfully capture the mix of mid-century and Polynesian styles.

  1. My husband and I wanted to stay here but the rate was something like $1,800 per night, not stay, per night. WDW is for the top 1%, thanks to Darth Chapek. Can’t wait to vote on March 4th!! :)

  2. WOW! Spectacular! It’s bigger than most apartments in Boston!
    I would not mind if I could live there all year!

  3. The absurd thing is that I can fly my entire family too Bora Bora to stay at the bungalows that those are copying for significantly less money then Disney would charge to stay overlooking green alligator infested water that I can’t swim in.
