Back in the fall, Disney shared that they would be making some updates to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. One of the biggest changes would take place in the Guests rooms, as they would be refurbished with a Moana-inspired design.
Disney shared some great photos that showcases the nods to characters from the film that would be present, including Moana, Maui, Hei Hei, and Te Fiti. In addition to adding subtle character touches, there will also be updates to the furnishings and fixatures.
Moving into the bathroom, the sandy ocean floor plays inspiration for the tiles and vanity’s carved details. This is to complement the fresh, modern approach to the reimagined rooms.
As had been shared before, the Guest rooms aren’t the only thing that will be getting updates. Also being created is a new porte cochere. Guests will see the new area as they pull up to the Great Ceremonial House. The new section will include a design that features a high-pitched, open-truss roof. The roof will be covered in a thatch style with pops of color. There will also be four new chandeliers. These will draw their inspiration from the glass floats, fishing nets and oversized bamboo elements that can be found inside the lobby and will compliment the area’s new open and airy vibe.
In addition, the resort’s Monorail station is receiving new wooden screens with geometric patterns in tropical colors. These changes will add to the overall ambience of the entrance.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s Moana-inspired rooms will officially debut in late July 2021.
