UPDATE: “Moana” Themed Rooms Coming to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

New details have surfaced regarding the extended closure and refurbishment of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World, including a resort-wide retheme to the popular animated film, Moana.

Moana-themed carpet was installed earlier this year at ‘Ohana in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. In this segment, you can see Maui in the upper left quadrant, and the Heart of Te Fiti in the lower right.

In a statement to the Orlando Sentinel, Disney has confirmed the changes taking place inside guest rooms, including a new color palette and more:

A Disney World spokeswoman on Monday said changes to the rooms will include a move to a Pacific Ocean-inspired color palette as well as details, patterns and textures from Disney’s “Moana,” an animated film that takes place on the Polynesian island of Motunui.

Just earlier this year, the resort’s popular ‘Ohana restaurant debuted new carpeting featuring characters from Moana alongside Polynesian-inspired design.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is scheduled to remain closed through Summer 2021, with its Monorail station temporarily closing in October of this year.

  1. Hey Jessica. Do we know if they’re trying to phase out Lilo and Stitch for some reason? I’m not opposed to the rooms getting the Moana overhaul, but to have Moana carpet in Ohana makes me concerned that the Lilo and Stitch character meal won’t be coming back and we’ve already lost Stitch in Tomorrowland. My friend that’s going with me in Sept 2021 is gonna be devastated if she can’t meet Stitch.
