Earlier today we reported that Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort would not reopen this October due to a lengthy refurbishment. According to the Orlando Sentinel while the resort is under refurbishment Disney will be retheming the Great Ceremonial House and guest rooms with Moana!
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,” that takes place on the Polynesian island of Motunui.
Here is the official communication from Disney concerning Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort closure & refurbishment.
As we continue to reopen additional Disney Resort hotels to Guests, we are modifying the reopening date for As we continue to reopen additional Disney Resort hotels to Guests, we are modifying the reopening date for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort which will reopen next summer. This schedule adjustment also allows us to complete some refurbishment work at the Resort hotel, including enhancements to the Great Ceremonial House and Guest rooms. We expect work to begin in early October and 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.
Since the DVC Villas and Bungalows will remain open throughout the Polynesian’s refurbishment, it is likely that will not be receiving the Moana retheming.
No other details on the Moana retheming of the Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort have been released at this time.
Stay tuned to Chip and Co for more details as we get them!
