Default Rumored Polynesian Changes

So on facebook, Tikiman has posted that there are some big changes expected for the Polynesian coming up. Some have to do with cash room renovations, but there is chatter about current surveying for a potential new DVC resort or addition there. Has anybody here heard any recent information or rumors about this?

As I look at the map, they pretty much only could renovate existing longhouses as they did before (doubtful), wipe out Spirit of Aloha to build over there, or put a tower up on the parking lot across from the monorail station and ME dropoff.

Someone on another forum said they were told that PVB was planned in multiple phases early on and that there was to be more coming with one and two bedroom villas, but this was years in the past. I'm just trying to pick apart what is armchair engineering or wish list thinking from what might actually be happening down the road. Of course I understand also that even if they are surveying it could just mean they are figuring out which of multiple locations they might build at down the road.

Just grasping for information if there is any to be had. Thanks in advance

I could see another longhouse going behind Pago Pago. Maybe something that is 4 stories instead of 3 to not complete change the sightlines of the resort but allow for addition rooms and room types. That might not be worth it though for the amount of points they could sell off one longhouse.

That's a long time rumor about PVB2

Sadly they took so long that it'll likely be a separate entity vs adding on like at SSR. Though they still can add per the POS.

They have some room, but not a lot. If they make a separate entity I think it'll be smaller than PVB which isn't great for size wise in terms of getting a room. Not sure I'd buy in to a tiny resort.

I'd actually lean more towards guessing it would be an addition to the existing association. History has brand new resorts being sold with only 40 years on the contracts. This would be about the same.

The original plans for PVB had me very excited about DVC there! I think that would be a huge addition.

Yeah my brain flips back and forth on how they would do it honestly. Ask me tomorrow and I might change LOL

I remember the original plans and then hearing studios only. I was bummed until I realized they were all connecting (mostly and I know just to another). We obviously bought there and for that reason.

I'm not sure what we would do if they added on there room wise. Points would be close to VGF and that's where I start going "what would I do"? If those murphy beds are decent I might go down to a 1 bedroom... maybe. Ugh, I'll dream some LOL

I'm hoping for the Spirit of Aloha (I thought it was lame years ago) made into DVC. It's getting more and more difficult reserving PVB if not at 11 months so it's obvious that even though there was/is much complaining about only studios, they have no problem filling them up. I love the studios and actually am hoping they leave PVB all studios. Yep, in the minority, but what I hope.
When are you booking? I have had no issues so far at 11 months. Even done good at 7 months if I need to combine...

Several times at 6 months and 6-1/2 months when I wanted to add family reservations to mine. I was actually surprised a little with being all studios. Personally I love the connecting studios very much.

We are 2x PVB owners and love it all studios but not opposed to expansion if it opens up possibilities. It will greatly depend on the point charts...

The bungalows don't bother me as they fit the feel to me. The fences bothered me more. Still wouldn't love a 5 story building for sight lines. That said even a 5 story building there would be rather small in terms of numbers.

I write this not as disrespect to Disney or their guests. But what Disney sells as Deluxe Resorts, really is not.
Agreed.
The "Deluxe" part, for us anyway, is the location. On-site.

Me either.
