Lots of things are changing in Disney World these days!
We’re watching construction progress in Magic Kingdom on the TRON coaster, in EPCOT for the park transformation, and at multiple Disney World hotels for updates coming soon. And today, we’ve got a BIG construction update from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort!
The Polynesian Resort is in the middle of some major construction as Disney prepares to add a Disney Vacation Club building here onsite. But before the new building gets added, some pretty hefty demolition has to be done.
Today as we were riding by on the monorail, we noticed that Disney has begun to demolish the theater that was formerly home to the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. When the changes were announced for the Polynesian, it was revealed that the show would be closing, but it definitely feels more final to see the old building being torn apart.
The whole area has become a massive construction zone, with walking paths blocked, demolition equipment, and debris everywhere. We’ll keep watching the progress when traveling to and from Magic Kingdom by monorail to see if things change in the coming days and weeks.
If you’re staying at the Polynesian, keep in mind that you may hear some construction noise during the daytime due to this ongoing project. Also, walkways around the resort may be shifting or blocked off due to the work that’s happening.
And the Polynesian Resort isn’t the only hotel getting updated! Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is currently getting some new DVC rooms as well, and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is scheduled for some updates in the future. We can’t wait to see all of these projects completed soon.
