As Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort prepares to reopen on July 19, 2021, it seems that even more changes are coming to the popular Deluxe Resort property.
The Polynesian has been closed to non-Disney Vacation Club Guests for over a year — first due to the COVID-19 pandemic and then because of refurbishment construction — but DVC Members have been able to enjoy the Poly’s Disney Vacation Club Villas and Overwater Bungalows.

Now, however, that is about to change. Guests with upcoming stays at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s Disney Vacation Club accommodations have reportedly begun receiving emails that they are being relocated to the new Moana-themed rooms within the main part of the Resort.
These reimagined spaces feature Moana (2016) characters like heroine herself, Maui the demigod, Pua the pig, and Hei Hei the chicken.
Disney Parks Blog has described the new rooms as:
These reimagined spaces feature a new color palette inspired by the Pacific Ocean and its many islands, including details, patterns and textures from the hit Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Moana” – look closely and you might even spot some characters from the story!
At this time, there is no known end date for the refurbishment of the Disney Vacation Club Villas and Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
The official description of these Walt Disney World Resort accommodations reads:
Escape to an enchanting oasis of swaying palms, tropical surroundings and an island ambience that evokes the languid spirit of the South Pacific. Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows makes its home at one of the original—and legendary—Walt Disney World Resort hotels.
The description goes on to share many of the amenities DVC Guests can expect:
Stay in an overwater Bungalow with just-like-home amenities, including a kitchen, washer, dryer and separate bedrooms. These outstanding accommodations go beyond the traditional hotel room.
Designed with comfort in mind, 2-bedroom Bungalows are ideal for families—and include the following features:
- A full kitchen, so you can prepare meals and snacks from the comfort of your bungalow
- Spacious living and dining areas where your family can share quality time together
- Separate bedrooms that offer space, privacy and tranquility – so it’s easy to rest, relax and recharge your spirit after each exhilarating vacation day
- A washer and dryer, so you can pack lightly and avoid airline baggage fees
