Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is closed through Summer 2021 as refurbishments will be taking place in the Grand Ceremonial House as well as the guest rooms and the Resort's main pool. The refurbishment to the guest rooms will include adding decorating details reminiscent of Disney's feature film, Moana. The colors used will be inspired by the Pacific Ocean, as will the textures and stylings.

Due to the upcoming work in the Great Ceremonial House, monorail service to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is temporarily suspended and will reopen in the summer of 2021.

Disney's Polynesian Village Resort Overview

Disney’s Polynesian Village is one of two original hotels that opened with the Magic Kingdom on October 1, 1971 (the other was Disney’s Contemporary Resort). While the resort has certainly seen changes and expansion since then, its tropical theme and South Pacific flair have proven their timeless appeal – making this one of the most popular resorts at Walt Disney World for more than 40 years.

Themed to reflect the style and culture of the South Pacific, the resort is divided into several ‘longhouses’ as well as the Great Ceremonial House, which serves as the resort's main reception area. With a 3-story high atrium, a rich tropical color palette and a warm sense of hospitality, the Great Ceremonial House introduces guests to the Polynesian adventure that awaits them.  The theming continues throughout the grounds of the resort with white sand beaches, torch-lit walkways, lush landscaping, and waterfalls throughout. The resort's position on the shores of the Seven Seas lagoon gives it a prime location from which to view the nightly fireworks at the Magic Kingdom, as well as the Electrical Water Pageant.

Polynesian Village Resort Rooms

The guest rooms at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort are currently being redone and Disney has released a look at some of the new elements we can expect to see. The reimagined rooms will feature artwork, including a mural that spans the length of an entire wall, that highlights Moana, Maui, and other themes and characters from the Disney film.

When dealing with 'themed' resorts, one measurement of success can be how well it carries its overall theme into its rooms – and on this scale the Polynesian is virtually unmatched. A soothing color scheme of sage and tan combine with textures of wood and stone to create a relaxing Polynesian ambience.
