DVC at the Poly!!!

Read this from the DisDining blog but I thought we already knew that the Disney Vacation Club was opening a property at the Polynesian?  I guess I must have figured it was just a matter of time! :)  Clara LOVES the Poly - we have to eat at 'Ohana for breakfast every trip.  So maybe someday we'll stay here through the DVC, who knows? 

Here's a copy and paste of the blog:

"This just in, Walt Disney World in Orlando is announcing the construction of Disney Vacation Club properties at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.

Here is the Press Release:

Celebration, Fla. (Sept. 17, 2013) – Today, Disney Vacation Club announced that its planned next location will be at Disney’s Polynesian Resort, located on Seven Seas Lagoon at Walt Disney World Resort. When this resort is completed, Disney Vacation Club will have destinations at all three resorts on the monorail system, allowing easy access to Magic Kingdom Park.

The planned development project at Disney’s Polynesian Resort, when completed, will join Disney Vacation Club’s 12 other properties, including The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, scheduled to open Oct. 23. Construction on the Polynesian project began this month, and completion is estimated to be in 2015. In addition to the Disney Vacation Club project, other guest areas within Disney’s Polynesian Resort will undergo refurbishment. More information and project details will be shared at a later date.

Disney Vacation Club debuted in October 1991 with a flexible, vacation point-based model rather than the traditional fixed-week timeshare model. Disney Vacation Club is approaching a total of 200,000 member families from all 50 states and approximately 100 countries who have discovered the joys of membership.

Disney Vacation Club members are able to choose from among a variety of vacation destinations, including a stay at any Disney Vacation Club Resort or at more than 500 other destinations around the world, and when they purchase directly from Disney, members also can take trips on one of the Disney Cruise Line ships or guided vacations with Adventures by Disney. Additionally, vacations at a Disney Vacation Club Resort can last from one night to several weeks."

We aren't DVC members, but are renting points in March. If that goes well we may continue on that route in the future, so maybe we would get to stay in the Poly DVC someday Cool  I just hope it isn't all torn up with construction when we go in March, we are looking forward to our Ohana breakfast!

I can't wait to see how they look.

Jaime, I hope you will include information on how the renting points works out for you at WDW.   We rented points for Aulani, but there were not tickets involved with staying there.   I like the idea of going to WDW and having more choices of places with elbow room - which the DVC properties offer.
