    I was looking into the cost of reserving a bungalow in the Polynesian resort this summer, but couldn't find any availability. When is the bungalow available or how can I reserve it?

    Aloha, Emily! Welcome to our planDisney ohana! A little Orange Bird told me you are trying to book a reservation at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. I'd be happy to help!

    The 20 Bora Bora Bungalows sit over the water of the Seven Seas Lagoon, and they are some of the most coveted spots to stay in all of Walt Disney World Resort. Although the interior is beautiful, one of the most appealing features is the private deck with a plunge pool and lounge furniture from which you can watch Disney Enchantment or the Electrical Water Pageant. It's like a little slice of paradise with a view of Magic Kingdom Park!

    You can reserve these Deluxe Villas through the Walt Disney World website (or a travel agent), much like you would book a hotel room. I did a cursory search myself after seeing your question, Emily, and I had no luck finding a Bungalow for the 2022 summer season; you might have more luck by calling 407-560-CHAT (2428). If there's no inventory, don't despair, as there is another route!

    As a Disney Vacation Club Member, I was able to check their website, and it looks like there is availably in the Bungalows throughout the summer. If DVC members cannot use their allotted points before they expire, they'll sometimes rent them out. You can do an internet search on how to rent points, and then do some research to make sure you find a reputable "points broker." Another idea is to book two Polynesian Deluxe Studios. My family of five stayed in one last month, and while they are not nearly as luxurious as the Bungalows, we loved the space and appreciated that there were two bathrooms (this was necessary with three teenagers)! 

    I hope this helps, Emily! While you're there, make sure to stop at the Pineapple Lanai to indulge in the famed Dole Whip dessert! Until next time, or as they say in paradise, a hui hou!
