Another guest, Heidi Fritz Miller, shared a photo of the damaged van, which appears to be a white Chrysler Pacifica, after the fire was out.

The reason for the fire is not clear but it appears to have been an issue with the minivan specifically. No injuries have been reported.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is currently decorated for the winter holidays and construction has begun on a new Disney Vacation Club wing.
