Disney’s Polynesian Bora Bora Bungalow Photos Tour

This article provides a photo tour of the Bora Bora Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Villas. Each bungalow features two bedrooms and sleeps up to eight guests, with additional sleeping arrangements in the living area.

For many of us, staying at Disney’s Bora Bora Bungalows is a bucket list item. These bungalows that sit over the lake at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort are among the most expensive accommodations at Walt Disney World.

Unfortunately, we have yet to stay in one of the bungalows, but I did have the opportunity to tour one. So, I thought you would enjoy browsing a few photos. Rest assured, I doubt there are many complaints when it comes to these units.

The Bora Bora Bungalows are part of Disney’s Polynesian Villas, one of the Disney Vacation Club Resorts.

A Bora Bora Bungalow sleeps up to eight adults. Each bungalow contains a king-size bed, a queen-size bed, a queen-size sleeper sofa, and two single pull-down beds. Units are approximately 1093 sq ft and have a view of Seven Seas Lagoon.

A long walkway connects the bungalows to the white sand beach on the shoreline of the Polynesian. Each bungalow is staggered in relation to its neighbor, allowing for privacy.

The bungalows sit directly behind the following longhouses:

Before we venture inside, here is a photo of the front porch.

Immediately inside, you’ll run into the first guest bedroom. This bedroom looks out to the front porch. A built-in bench sits along the window, providing additional storage underneath.

This is the smaller of the two bedrooms. It has a queen bed and a single pull-out trundle bed. The photo below shows where the single bed is lowered. This room sleeps up to three guests.

Additionally, this guest bedroom has a unique split bathroom. The water closet portion of the bath adjoins the first bedroom. However, the bath has a secondary door that opens to the foyer. You’ll also find a stackable washer and dryer in the foyer.

If you look at the photo below, you can see a door to the water closet (toilet and sink area). A separate entry in the middle leads to a shower area.

We see the tub with shower and vanity in the space between the water closet and laundry area. While this setup might seem a little odd, it works well when you have multiple family members trying to get ready.

The master bath is impressive, and I appreciated the Polynesian undertones.

Additionally, a sizeable soaking tub is available.

A living room sits at the very back corner of the bungalow. This is where the sofa sleeper folds out of the wall and transitions to a Murphy bed. You can sit on the sofa and enjoy the pretty lake view with Magic Kingdom in the distance.

Another pull-down single bed is available under the television area. Altogether, three guests can sleep in the living room, three in the front bedroom, and two in the main bedroom. That gets us to a total of eight adults per bungalow.

I love this piece.


The Bora Bora Bungalows all have full kitchens and a dining area.

The kitchen area is efficient with modern conveniences, including large appliances like a stove, oven, dishwasher, and full-size refrigerator. Smaller items include a toaster, coffee maker, and microwave.

Lastly, the Bora Bora Bungalows have private decks.

A separately fenced portion of the deck has a small plunge pool.

After touring this Polynesian Bungalow, I would recommend a stay here for anyone who is seriously considering planning a vacation in this sort of high-end accommodation. I felt as though the layout was highly efficient and provided enough room for a large family to spread out over the course of a week-long vacation.

Other comparable options I would consider include:

If you decide to try a bungalow, try to plan at least one evening at the resort to enjoy the Electrical Water Pageant and the Magic Kingdom fireworks. You’ll have a unique perspective of both from the deck. Preview the pageant’s schedule.
