Expansion at Polynesian Resort

Get ready to be amazed as Walt Disney World announces its plans for a brand-new Disney Vacation Club (DVC) tower at Polynesian Village Resort! Let’s dive into the details of the expansion at Polynesian Village Resort. We’ll also offer our perspective on the expansion and why it’s such a significant move for Walt Disney World.

Situated on the picturesque shores of Seven Seas Lagoon and conveniently connected to the Magic Kingdom by the monorail line or recently added walking path, the proposed project will replace the beloved Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. While we bid farewell to this enchanting luau, we eagerly anticipate the incredible experiences that the new Disney Vacation Club tower will bring to the Polynesian Resort.

For those unfamiliar with the location of the Spirit of Aloha, the DVC tower will find its place between the existing Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Wedding Pavilion, which is adjacent to the Grand Floridian. This sought-after area near Magic Kingdom has experienced growth in recent years with the addition of the Villas at the Grand Floridian.

Bill Diercksen, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club, expressed the company’s enthusiasm for the project, stating, “It’s no secret that our Members and guests love the monorail resorts at Walt Disney World. Expanding our Disney Vacation Club offerings at the Polynesian would give our Members and Guests yet another incredible option for staying close to the magic while making vacation memories that last a lifetime.”

As of now, the proposed Disney Vacation Club tower is expected to open its doors to guests in late 2024 at Walt Disney World. The plans for the Polynesian tower include a range of guest room types, exciting new recreational offerings, and tantalizing dining options. Further information and project details will be revealed at a later date, building up the anticipation for this magnificent addition.

Currently, Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows boasts 380 Disney Vacation Club villas, including the largest Deluxe Studios available at any Disney Vacation Club resort in Walt Disney World. Additionally, the resort features unique over-the-water two-bedroom Bora Bora Bungalows.

Last year, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort underwent various enhancements, including upgrades to the Great Ceremonial House, a stunning new porte-cochère, and a rebuilt monorail station. These improvements not only breathed new life into the original opening-day resort but also maintained its thematic integrity.

Room refurbishments were also part of the Polynesian Village Resort’s transformation. New Moana-themed Rooms at Polynesian Village Resort have been added.

Construction on the tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is progressing at an astonishing pace. In just a few days, we witnessed significant advancements as concrete panels were seamlessly lowered into place, rapidly shaping the tower. This construction method, seen in other projects around Central Florida, is a testament to the efficiency and expertise involved. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort tower is progressing even faster than the construction of the most recently built towers at Disney’s Riviera Resort or the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Resort.

The DVC Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is well on track to meet its scheduled late 2024 opening. The anticipation builds as we eagerly await the unveiling of this spectacular addition to the Walt Disney World vacation experience.

Stay tuned for further updates and be prepared to embark on a magical journey in the heart of the South Pacific. The countdown to Late 2024 begins now!
