The new Disney Vacation Club tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is expanding every day as more concrete walls are added to the building.

Disney Vacation Club Tower Construction

While the main structure of the tower is ten stories tall, crews have been working on the foundation of another structure for weeks.

Construction is starting to go vertical on this section of the tower as walls are added to the center of the concrete foundation.

Diggers around the foundation are being used to clear dirt away. There’s a giant pile of dirt behind the foundation.

Though not very visible from this angle on the Monorail, crews have also been carving out a square near the edge of the lagoon, maybe for another building foundation or for the tower’s pool.

More concrete walls have been added to this end of the main structure, reaching up to about three stories right now.

On the sides of the tower, more short walls and floors have been added to create balconies around the window openings.

Some of the balconies currently include two windows, while some just include one. You’ll also notice there are a couple of spots with two-story openings on this side of the building.

The row of windows without balconies is between the elevator shafts, where vertical construction began.

A few days ago, the two current structures of the tower were connected.

The connecting section is currently two and three stories tall at different spots and is seven window openings across.

The second full structure is not yet as tall as the main center structure.

This marks the end of the tower, as seen with balconies and windows facing out.

Projected to open in late 2024, the proposed vacation ownership property would complement the existing resort and evoke the spirit of the Pacific Islands.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Disney’s Polynesian Resort underwent an extensive refurbishment recently. While the standard rooms received “Moana” theming, the Disney Vacation Club Studios got “soft goods” refurbishments, meaning just the upholstery, art, and such were updated.

The hotel received a new Monorail station and port-cochére. The entrance to the resort was redone as well to match the new structures. Kona Café recently reopened after an extensive refurbishment, with all new seating, decór, and more. The Kiki Tikis Splash Play Area and Lava Pool slide were also recently refurbished.

The rugs and most upholstery in the lobby of the Great Ceremonial House were recently replaced.

Alongside the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort turned 50 in 2021. The resort opened on October 1, 1971 with Disney’s Contemporary Resort (Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds also celebrated its 50th anniversary, but it didn’t open until November 1971).

It’s also home to the fan-favorite tiki bar, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. Guests don’t need a reservation at the hotel to visit the on-site bars and restaurants.
