Starting today, current members of the Disney Vacation Club can begin purchasing points at the newest property of the Disney Vacation Club…the Polynesian. The addition of Disney Vacation Club villas and bungalows has been a major part of the renovations done at The Polynesian Village Resort and vacation club members and non-members have been waiting for sales to open. Currently, only current members can purchase points at the Polynesian at the cost of $160 per point. Sales for new members will begin on February 9th. No word on if the sales will remain at $160 or will go higher.
Club Disney will be a brand new children’s activity center at the Disney Polynesian Village Resort. It will be replacing the old Neverland Club also at The Polynesian.
Children’s Activity Centers are places where guests can drop off their children, ages 4 to 12, for the evening. The centers are not located at all resorts, however, they are available for all resort guests. A list of the centers:
Simba’s Playhouse – Animal Kingdom Lodge
Sandcastle Club – Beach Club Resort
Camp Dolphin – Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel
Club Disney – Polynesian Village Resort
Cubs Den – Wilderness Lodge
Hours for most resorts is 4:30 pm until midnight and the cost is $11 per hour and does include dinner if you book during dinner hours. Reservations are suggested and can be made at 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463)
What do these centers provide?
They provide supervised games and activities for the children. Dinner – usually chicken nuggets or a hot dog. Later in the evening, they wind down with a movie in the center.
Children must be potty trained to go to the club.
Back to the Club Disney:
Formally the Neverland Club complete with Peter Pan and Tinker Bell theme. The area has been completely re-themed. The new theme will be takes its inspiration for the Disney Little Golden Books series featuring Lady and Trump, Pinocchio, and Alice in Wonderland.
These children’s activity centers are great for parents who want a night out without the kids. My family have used this service once during our Disney vacations. We made reservations for one of the Candlelight Processional packages. It included dinner at Chefs de France and then one of the showings of the Candlelight Processional during Christmastime. My wife and I knew that our daughter, who was five at the time, could make it through the dinner in France. However, we knew that the Candlelight Processional would be difficult for her to sit through. So, we made a reservation for her at the Cubs Den since we were staying at Wilderness Lodge. My wife and I had a great night out even if it was FREEZING!!!!!! outside. My daughter was the only person in the Cubs Den that night and had a great time as well playing by herself and with the cast members in the Cubs Den.
These children’s activity are a great over-looked service that Disney provides for children to allow parents to have a night out to themselves.
