We are getting a little closer to an actual reopening date for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort!, along with the Resort Monorail Station. We just happen to be doing a Monorail Loop yesterday and got some photos to share. Obviously, you can see they have capped the Porte Cochere of the updated Monorail station. (a Porte Cochere is defined as a covered entrance large enough for vehicles to pass through, typically opening into a courtyard.)
The Polynesian Resort is set to reopen, according to Disney at the end of July 2021. The Poly shut down last year for the pandemic along with the rest of Walt Disney World. It just never reopened, in contrast to the DVC rooms. Furthermore, the resort is updating the rooms to a Moana theme, which you can see by clicking the link below.
You can see construction behind the lobby of the Polynesian. We witnessed them digging up the ground by the support beams.
Disney recently released info of Ohana reopening and giving previews of the new rooms to cast members who work at the Polynesian. We had previously reported on all the happenings at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. You can click on the links above to see the new room look and all the info on reopening Ohana.
Check out the video below of the Resort Monorail Station.
Without a doubt, Ohana and the Polynesian are great stops on the Monorail loop, but what is your favorite spot on the loop for dinner?
