PHOTOS: Gutted Rooms at the Polynesian as Renovations are Underway

in Walt Disney World

Polynesian Resort Construction Progress

Disney has announced that the beloved Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will be undergoing some serious transformations. We have more incredible photos that give us a better look at the progress of this transformation, including completely gutted rooms!

Previously, we shared information on the Moana themed rooms that are coming to the Polynesian Village Resort. While Disney Vacation Club Members can currently stay at the resort in the overwater Villas and Bungalows, the Polynesian is currently not open for bookings outside of DVC.

That means areas of the Polynesian that do NOT hold DVC rooms are currently being renovated to accommodate this new Moana theme.

Both Aotearoa and Fiji towers are undergoing a lot of construction as progress appears to be moving quickly at the Polynesian.

Disney has said Guests can expect this from the new Moana rooms:

…changes to the rooms will include a move to a Pacific Ocean-inspired color palette as well as details, patterns and textures from Disney’s “Moana,” an animated film that takes place on the Polynesian island of Motunui.

As we know, work has already begun in full swing at the Great Ceremonial House, particularly the Monorail station. The monorail closed on November 2nd and will remain closed for at least 8 months. During this period of refurbishment for the Monorail at the Polynesian, Guests can access the Magic Kingdom by boat, the TTC, or the new walking trail that has just opened.
