Disney’s Polynesian Resort cast members got a sneak peak at the new Moana rooms today. Polynesian Resort has been closed for well over a year now, shutting down the same time as all the other resorts when the pandemic hit. It never reopened with the rest of Disney World Resort, except for the Polynesian Villas and Bungalows for DVC members. Also open at the Polynesian is Lava pool, Capt. Cooks, Tambu Lounge Pineapple Lanai and Kona Café. Ohana remains closed along with Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.
Check out some of the newest photos, including a surprise visit from Goofy and Pluto who were there to check out the new rooms. Right now Polynesian is scheduled to reopen in July of 2021.

Back in October travel agents received this message – 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.
