FIRST LOOK at the Remodeled Kona Café in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

The new look for Kona Café in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has been revealed this morning. The restaurant does not open until November 1, but we got a first look at the remodel.

Very little remains from the previous look, with the style shifting to match the refurbishments done to the hotel last year.

We previously noted the addition of an awning to the front of the restaurant.

The wavy fencing around the entrance has been replaced with a black mesh-like fence. Here is what the entrance area previously looked like:

Inside, the lighting fixtures have been replaced, and the ceiling features new Polynesian-style patterns.

The new lighting fixtures resemble wicker baskets. Below is what the old lighting fixtures and ceiling looked like.

The ceiling previously had no designs on it and the lighting fixtures were wide rounded black and yellow pieces.

Remnants of the old style remain at Kona Island.

  1. Nice to see they did some actual theming instead of creating another generic white corporate space. Not the original vision of 1971 Hawaii, but certainly better than most of what has been done lately.

  2. 🥺will miss the bolder colors, spinning fans, the large live plants and the big lounge chairs. Little too clean line- cafeteria to me.🤷‍♀️
