Work has begun on refurbishing Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, which will not only get some updated features throughout but also Moana-themed rooms.
We’ve seen cranes in the parking area across from the resort’s porte cochere and monorail platform. Construction equipment is being staged in the lot.
Tan scrims block some areas from guest view.
The vehicle entrance is blocked, preventing guests from arriving at the Great Ceremonial House.
The construction signs feature resort icon Maui wearing a hardhat.
This pedestrian walkway leads to the Great Ceremonial House’s main entrance, which is located below the monorail station. Guests are directed to the left.
When we checked on this sidewalk later, the direction sign had gone missing.
Easels have been placed throughout Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to direct foot traffic.
Maui points the way to the bus stop and the Transportation and Ticket Center, which is located adjacent to the resort.
An additional sign directs guests to the current entrance for The Great Ceremonial House.
The main entrance is now designated as an emergency exit.
The Great Ceremonial House Guest Services area is abandoned.
Nothing has changed yet, but we’re sure to see refurbishment in this area soon.
A sign announces that Guest Services is now located in Pago Pago. A resort map has been attached to the sign so guests can find Pago Pago.
Numerous signs have been placed along the path from the Great Ceremonial House to Pago Pago. Simply follow Maui!
Guests are advised to use the crosswalk.
Here we find Maui again.
This time Maui is directing guests to the Bungalows, Takelau, and Moorea.
The Disney’s Magical Express stop is now outside of Pago Pago. Interestingly, Disney chose to use “DME” rather than the airport shuttle service’s full name.
A canopy, much like those used as cool down areas at temperature screenings, is used to store strollers and ECVs.
Bell services is using this area to assist guests.
You can see what the new check-in area inside Pago Pago looks like in our last update.
