As we get closer to the 50th anniversary of one of the original hotels of Walt Disney World, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is now accepting bookings for stays starting July 19th.

What’s Happening:

  • Walt Disney World has announced that they are now accepting bookings for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for stays beginning July 19th.
  • As part of the reopening, Guests will return to an enhanced entrance with a new porte cochere showcasing the iconic mid-20th century architecture the Polynesian is famous for.
  • As the resort reopens, the temporary front desk area at Pago Pago will close, and front desk and concierge services will move back to the Great Ceremonial House. Disney’s Magical Express and valet will be available under the new porte cochere.
  • It should be noted that while most of the resort areas and amenities will be available, the renovation of the monorail station continues and monorail service to and from the resort remains temporarily unavailable. The front entrance to the Great Ceremonial House will also open at a later date, and Cast Members will be available to assist Guests in accessing the side entrance to the Great Ceremonial House in the meantime.
  • Walt Disney World advises that Guests should continue to use Online Check-in and Direct-to-Room service to help simplify their arrival experience.
  • When the resort reopens, guests will see newly reimagined rooms inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios film, Moana. The new rooms have a different look to them than what was previously there, with a color palette inspired by the animated film and a seemingly brighter feel. If you look around at the various details, you can spot different references to the characters from the film.

  • This popular locale joins the other Disney Resort hotels of Walt Disney World in creating the Disney Resorts Collection, where the magic you find in the theme parks extends to every moment of your vacation. Disney Resort hotels offer you a wide selection of fantastic settings to choose from, inspired by worlds both real and imagined. You’re fully immersed in our legendary storytelling and guest service that extend beyond our theme parks to every moment of your stay, whether you’re visiting an African savanna, strolling a seaside boardwalk, see a favorite Disney character or so much more – there’s magic seemingly around every corner.
