I was so incredibly fortunate to have an opportunity recently to stay in one of Disney’s Polynesian Resort bungalows. These amazing accommodations are built in front of the Polynesian Resort right over the water with amazing views toward the Magic Kingdom. These are part of the Disney Vacation Club, however, I have been told there may be opportunities to rent them like a traditional resort reservation.
I have a dear friend who belongs to the Disney Vacation Club and reserved one for a night a few weeks ago, and it happened to be on my birthday! There were eight of us enjoying this amazing accommodation and we had such a marvelous time! I was so lucky to get their first and snap some quick photos of the mid-century modern tiki-themed decor.
This piece of furniture opens to reveal a surprise and a single bed! You can sleep up to eight people in this bungalow! The sofa in this room is a sleeper and there is a master bedroom with a King size bed and a second bedroom with a queen bed and another fold down single like this one.
I don’t care if the place does sleep eight, how about just me and my hubby catching the nightly fireworks from this private plunge pool? We could also see the boats coming to and from the Magic Kingdom and the Monorail as it zipped around to the Disney Resort Hotels.
Perhaps you prefer to just relax on a chaise and watch all the boats puttering around the Seven Seas Lagoon. If you look carefully, you can catch a glimpse of the top of Cinderella Castle and Space Mountain.
You may just want to have lunch on your deck and take in the sights. I took this picture to show you, that although you are in your own individual bungalow, you have neighbors nearby. You are at Walt Disney World, not Tahiti or the Maldives. Olaf prefered the swinging chairs where he could stay out of the sun. We wouldn’t want him to melt, would we? Sitting in one of these two chairs which are just off the master bedroom was so peaceful.
This is another shot of the living room, but why would you want to spend time in here when you could be out on the fabulous deck? This is one of my favorite pieces of artwork in the bungalow. I can just imagine how wonderful a tropical lagoon like this would be…in my dream!
This is the master bedroom, and it is similarly styled to the rest of the bungalow, but wait until you see the bathroom! The door to the left opens to the side deck where the two hanging basket chairs are. Because we were in the end unit, when you walked into the master bedroom, the window right in front of you just looked right out on water.
Of course, the most magical time is dusk. As night falls the lights over at Disney’s Magic Kingdom and on the ferry boats that whisk guests across the Seven Seas Lagoon begin to glow magically. The only thing now is to enjoy the view as we await the nightly fireworks.
I’ll be sharing this at the following link parties:
