PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tour a NEW Moana Room at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort reopened to all guests today, and with it, the new Moana-themed rooms. Let’s take a tour!
New patio furniture includes two chairs and a small end table.
The hallways have also been redone with subtle Moana theming.
Hei Hei peeks out of some tropical foliage on this wall panel.
A themed sconce lights the hallway.
The carpet has colorful foliage patterned with geometrical patterns most commonly seen in Polynesian tattoo art.
In the upper left of this wall panel, the figures of Moana and Maui (as a hawk) can be seen.
The decorative art conceals maintenance panels in the hallways.
The light fixtures feature the spiral design seen on Moana’s boat and the heart of Te Fiti.
The cute room number signs featuring Maui the tiki statue have remained.
The view when you enter the room. The herringbone flooring adds kinesthetics to the space.
The closets have Polynesian-style art on the doors.
The closet closest to the door provides hangers.
The second closet has the classic luggage stand, drawers, and extra bedding.
The third closet has shelving, a safe, and a full-length mirror.
There is a small counter with a coffee maker, an ice bucket, and a minifridge inside the cabinet.
Hei Hei peeks out from behind the coffee machine.
A Keurig coffee maker is provided.
The minifridge is concealed inside the cabinet.
Coffee pods, cups, sugar, and creamer are provided in the drawer.
The bathroom has a sliding door.
The vanity and shower are in one space, while the toilet is separated by another sliding door.
The mirror has a dimensional geometric frame surrounded by stonework. A smaller, extendable cosmetic mirror is attached to the wall.
The vanity has two basins and a small amount of storage. A hairdryer is located on the shelves beneath the vanity. The panels are not cabinet doors, they are for accessing the plumbing.
A variety of Disney H20 products are provided, including a vanity kit, shower cap, mouthwash, body lotion, and bar soap.
The shower has a glass door and both fixed and handheld showerheads.
Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are provided from large dispensers affixed to the wall. There is also a shaving ledge (one of the smallest we’ve seen).
There’s a small shelf for your own toiletries.
Even the tile in the shower is themed.
The toilet is behind another sliding door.
If you’ve seen a room tour from us before, you know we love toilet art. It really livens up an otherwise bland space.
The floral art also features Moana on her boat at the bottom.
A cute cubby serves as a towel shelf inside the toilet room.
The bedroom has two queen beds and a day bed.
Even the vent cover is themed!
The main light fixture features some of the same Polynesian-style patterns.
A digital thermostat is located on the wall for easy access.
Beautiful “Moana” art hangs on the wall by the beds.
Themed sconces provide additional light. A small counter serves as a nightstand on the far sides of the beds. Outlets are provided above, making it the perfect place to charge your phone overnight. To the left of the sconce on the headboard frame, you will find a built-in reading light.
Benches for extra seating or storage are placed at the end of each bed.
The bedding looks plain from afar, but upon closer inspection, more geometric patterns decorate the fabric.
A floral bolster adds a burst of color to the bedding. Bedrunners may not have made a comeback, but we’re happy to see decorative pillows.
The headboards are patterned with geometric shapes in ovals reminiscent of canoes.
The headboards have embellishments shaped like the Heart of Te Fiti.
A nightstand with a drawer and cabinet sits between the two queen beds.
Additional outlets and ports are available (including USB and USB-C)
A chair and ottoman sit to the side of the beds nearest the windows.
Above the chair is a very neat lamp whose shade is decorated with various “Moana” characters. Here we can see Maui, Te Fiti, and a Kakamora.
On another side are Pua, Moana, and Hei Hei.
Moana’s father, Chief Tui, is on another side, as well as Tamatoa and Gramma Tala.
Wall art over the television and daybed depicts Moana and Maui in the style of Maui’s tattoos.
Our room was a connected room with a door beside the television.
The day bed, which doubles as a sofa, is a deep blue with orange throw pillows.
Both pillows have Polynesian art in shades of orange. One features an octopus.
Another shows a sea turtle.
Instructions for the daybed are attached for your convenience.
We had some trouble getting the back panel to fold down. You will need two hands to hold the lever down and pull on the straps. The bed itself is fairly comfortable.
Bedding is provided in the closet by the entry, and you can request extra bedding as needed.
A small end table with a lamp sits between the sofa and the TV. The curved design flows well with the room.
A closer look at the wall art shows Maui and Moana.
The television stand has three drawers for additional storage. A large Samsung TV is mounted above.
More outlets and ports are available here as well.
A receptacle for trash and recycling is next to the television.
A different style of sconce is mounted beside the windows.
The curtains are shades of white and blue that match well with the rest of the decor.
Tropical flowers and spirals resembling the Heart of Te Fiti are patterned on the curtains.
Two small tables are available beside the windows.
We had a theme park view, offering stunning sights.
Out the windows, we could see Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
We also had a view of two of the islands on the Seven Seas Lagoon.
We were pleasantly surprised by how much we like the rooms. They’re modern without being bland. The “Moana” theming isn’t overwhelming, but adds a subtle Disney touch. We hate to encourage more IP updates, but the Polynesian really needed an update and it looks great.
