We have a look at the progress of construction on the new DVC tower at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, as well as the new name, opening date, and when it’ll start accepting bookings.


The Update

The DVC tower has a new name: Island Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows.

The original concept designs for Disney’s Polynesian Resort featured a prominent tower as the heart of the resort. Island Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows will complete the vision created by Disney Imagineers decades ago while embracing the rich culture from the Polynesian Islands, according to Disney.

Inside the lobby, guests will be greeted by an art panel installation on the ceiling inspired by several Polynesian Islands, showcasing wildlife native to each locale. Each animal holds a strong connection to the islands and symbolizes values important to Polynesians.

When you arrive at Island Tower, you will notice beautiful designs created exclusively for the exterior, including a gorgeous Manta Ray that symbolizes freedom, protection and grace.

Walt Disney Imagineering collaborated with over a dozen artists from around the world to create unique artworks that will be displayed throughout the resort. From preserved moss walls to sculptures made from recycled fishing nets, each piece will be inspired by the spirit of conservation and embody the rich cultures of Polynesia.
