    I'm interested in renting a studio villa at the Polynesian in October, but many of the various villas show unavailable when I search availability. When do the villas become available to non-DVC members to rent through the Disney website?

    Hi Kristy,

    There is no question that Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows is one of the most popular and well-loved Disney Vacation Club Resorts. It also happens to be my personal favorite. With its lush, tropical landscaping, the friendly "Aloha" greetings from Cast Members, and spectacular views of the Seven Seas Lagoon and Cinderella Castle enjoyed from its white, sandy beach, Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows is a coveted place to stay for both Disney Vacation Club members and regular Guests booking cash reservations directly with Disney.

    While Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows is a Disney Vacation Club Resort, Disney still holds a portion of the inventory at this Resort for cash reservations. Whether you are booking a Villa using Disney Vacation Club points or making a cash reservation through Disney Resort Hotel Reservations, you will want to book your reservation as early as possible as demand almost always exceeds supply at this Resort, especially in the Deluxe Studio category.  

    In looking online, it appears that there is currently some availability in October for cash reservations, although there are some dates in the month which are currently fully booked. If you can be flexible with your dates, you may still be able to secure a cash reservation online or by contacting a Disney Vacation Planning Specialist directly at (407) WDISNEY or (407) 934-7639. 

    Kristi, I hope this has provided you some assistance as you begin to plan your visit to Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows.  If you have any further questions, please send them our way.  We would love to hEAR from you!
