  1. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort gets vintage makeover

    Tourism

    LAKE BUENA VISTA — At Walt Disney World, which is currently going through a resort-wide construction makeover — from parks to hotels to the mess that is Downtown Disney — the future is often in the past.

    Reminiscent of the South Pacific, the Bora Bora Bungalows at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows showcase a modern tropical style, sleep up to eight guests in a two-bedroom, home-like setting and feature a plunge pool on a private deck where guests can enjoy views of fireworks over Magic Kingdom. The Bungalows also have two full bathrooms, a kitchen, washer and dryer, and dining and living room spaces for gatherings. The newest Disney Vacation Club Resort, Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows features 20 Bungalows on Seven Seas Lagoon, the first of this type of accommodation for Disney, and when complete this summer, 360 Deluxe Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The expansion is part of an overall reimagination of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. (Walt Disney Co. / Matt Stroshane, photographer)
