Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Closed For “Moana” Refurbishment Until Summer 2021 (Except Villas and Bungalows)

With a phased approach to reopening, the Walt Disney World Resort continues to welcome Guests back to Disney Resort hotels, Walt Disney World theme parks and Disney Springs and hey have played a role in bringing back live professional sports.  

As the Walt Disney World Resort continues to reopen additional Disney Resort hotels to Guests, they are modifying the reopening date for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort which will now reopen next summer, 2021.

This schedule adjustment also allows the Walt Disney World Resort to complete some refurbishment work at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort hotel, including enhancements to the Great Ceremonial House and Guest rooms.

According to the Orlando SentinelA Disney World spokeswoman on Monday said 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.”

Disney expects work to begin in early October and we look forward to sharing more about these changes in the future.

The Villas and Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will remain open during this refurbishment. 

Disney is reaching out to Guests with upcoming reservations that are impacted by these changes, at least four weeks before their arrival.

Our Cast Members will be able to assist with modifying their reservations to other Disney Resort hotels. 

Impacted Guests may also be receiving email communication from Disney about their upcoming reservation.

We will continue to monitor the constantly changing environment and its impact on the state of Florida as Disney finds the right time to welcome back even more Guests.
