We noticed further progress on the Disney Vacation Club Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort today, as two of the previously standing structures are now joined by concrete walls.
Vacation Club Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
The construction crew continues to work on the foundation for an additional structure being added to this site.
A myriad of construction materials are still present, and crews are actively working on the project.
We reported on progress for this third structure last week.
Concrete walls have been constructed connecting the two previously reported structures. Take a look at the older image below for reference. This picture was taken about a week ago.
Two stories have already been added to the front of this new addition. Wooden safety railings have been installed in several of the windows.
A crane is hoisting additional concrete slabs into place.
A few of the windows are much larger than the others. Take a glance at the concept art below to get an idea of what they may look like when the building is finished.
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.
