New Poly DVC villas photos


#1

WDWMagic has some photos of the new, over-water DVC villas at the Poly.

Doesn't look like they're finished with the exterior work. But what's there doesn't look very attractive. More like Fort Wilderness cabins with a pitched roof and stilts.

Nice! Bet they are pricey.


#3

ohhh and ahhh. They are going to be nice when they are finished but I don't know that I 'get' the overwater concept in water that should not be swam or even walked in.


#4

Isn't the whole point of "real" over water resorts that you can watch the fish and see to the bottom of the water. Not sure this has the same appeal.


#5

Who's running the pool for picking the first date a guest goes pitching over the side?


#6

I have seen pictures of some of the over the water villas in places like Tahiti and Bora Bora. I hardly think the Lagoon is comparable. Yes, you have a view of the castle and fireworks but one splash of the water and BAM! You have a flesh eating ameoba. Not my cup a tea.


#7

Now now, I must defend my home state. It's a brain-eating amoeba. Even then, one really only needs to worry if you snort up lagoon water like Tony Montana in front of a pile of yayo.


#8

I have to agree with you. Not to be claiming sour grapes (because the chance of us affording them is nil) but they are pretty underwhelming


#9

DH talks about these amoeba constantly and is developing a real fear of lakes. Good thing we can't afford these things anyway! (Plus, they look pretty blah)

@Lentesta - Any guesses on how many points to book a week in a Poly "bungalow" during Christmas? Maybe I don't want to know scream

Location, location, location - Seven Seas Lagoon, baby.

@pirategirl007 - I remember when there used to be swimming! A roped off area in the lagoon tropical_fish

Boy, how things have changed/are changing at the Poly. Kind of off topic, but here is a photo @irenek posted over on "Classic" Lines Chat of her parents and grandmother at the Poly back in 1983. Tikiman Pages on FB posted it too. http://imgur.com/qYIAwXn

Dating myself...yes I remember that very well. Early 70's


#15

It will take just one too many lapu lapus and then splash...


#16

I'd be willing to check it out of someone wants to send me there!


#17

Ha! Decreased brain cells only. Maybe college did that though wink


#18

My first though when I saw the pictures was "double-wides on docks". But I'll reserve final judgement until after they are complete; there may be some very cool artwork planned for the exterior walls, decorative railings, flower baskets, etc. And I'm sure that the landscaping leading up to them will be beautiful...


#19

I wonder how many hundreds of thousands of gallons of blue food coloring it would take to make 7 Seas Lagoon look like Tahiti...

Seriously. Not tempting me
