Guests will be welcomed by a brand new porte cochere. This area showcases the mid-20th century architecture that the Poly is known for and is where Guests will find Disney’s Magical Express and valet. The new section will include a design that features a high-pitched, open-truss roof which will be covered in a thatch style with pops of color. There will also be four chandeliers that are inspired by the glass floats, fishing nets and oversized bamboo elements that can be found on the chandelier inside the lobby.
The front desk and concierge will once again be found in the Great Ceremonial House. (Currently the front desk can be found at Pago Pago.) Guests are encouraged to use Online Check-in, however.
When the resort reopens, Guests will be staying in the new Moana-inspired rooms. These rooms are to be updated with new furnishings and fixtures. In addition, there will be nods to characters from the hit film, including Moana, Maui, Hei Hei, and Te Fiti. Find out what these rooms will look like here.
One thing will not reopen on July 19 – the monorail at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Renovations of the monorail station will continue. The front entrance to the Great Ceremonial House will also open at a later date. Guests will need to access the Great Ceremonial House using the side entrance in the meantime. Work on the monorail station includes new wooden screens with geometric patterns in tropical colors.
We will share further updates about Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort here at The Mouse For Less.
