We’ve seen lots of news related to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort announced lately.
Earlier today, we shared that the resort would remain closed until 2021. We also learned that the Polynesian’s guest rooms will soon be receiving a Moana-inspired makeover. Now, we’ve got some news about the monorail station at the Polynesian.
Please stand clear of the doors. Taking a trip around Disney World on the Monorail? One entire Monorail station will soon be closing.
We chatted with a Cast Member on the Disney World website earlier today who confirmed that, beginning in October of this year, the Monorail station at the Polynesian will be closed.
We were also able to find some further confirmation of this on the Disney website for the Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows.
The Cast Member we spoke to said that it looked like the Monorail station at the Polynesian may be closed for the rest of the year.
One of the big perks of staying at resorts like the Polynesian, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is having access to the Monorail. The Ticket and Transportation Center is a fairly short walk away from the Polynesian though, so guests would have access to the Monorail that way.
Update: The Disney Resort Hotels: Know Before You Go website has been updated to reflect the transportation options available to guests staying at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. Specifically, the website notes that bus transportation will be available from the Polynesian Villas & Bungalows to Magic Kingdom beginning in early October 2020.
Water taxis, however, are not available from the Resort to Magic Kingdom. Additionally, the website notes that the walkway to the Transportation and Ticket Center will remain open and guests will be able to access the monorail and ferry boats to Magic Kingdom from there.
We’re definitely keeping an eye out for more news about closures and reopenings around Disney World. We’ll keep you informed on the latest!
