The balconies of the new Disney Vacation Club tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort continue to come together as work also moves inside the building.
Disney Vacation Club Tower Construction
Right now, the new tower is just a big rectangle of concrete, but once completed, it will have theming that matches the rest of the resort.
Two cranes are on site to lift materials into place.
On the left side (when looking across the lagoon), five column-like pieces have been added near the top of the building. They stretch up two stories.
They match columns that run along the other side of the building. In the center are four steel columns not surrounded by concrete.
Almost all the flooring and walls have been installed for balconies on the lagoon side of the tower.
Bue tarps cover some of the window openings in the center of the building.
The building is ten stories tall at the center, but six-eight stories tall on the two ends.
From the Monorail, we can see the other side of the construction site.
The foundation of potentially another wing of the building is outlined near the edge of the site.
So far, there are only a few short concrete walls here, in addition to pipes and rebar.
Closer to the tower, a ditch is surrounded by caution tape.
There are more blue tarps over the occasional window on this side of the tower.
More concrete walls are staged on truck beds next to the building.
A rectangle of concrete on the ground is outlined with caution tape and a cherry-picker has red flags around it.
More cherry-pickers are parked further down.
The balconies are almost completed on this side of the building as well, and there are more columns near the top.
On this side, we can better see that the columns are flat and rectangular.
We can also see straight into the building on this side.
Wiring is visible inside.
Below is concept art for the Disney Vacation Club tower, although designs are always subject to change.
Projected to open in late 2024, the vacation ownership property will complement the existing resort and evoke the spirit of the Pacific Islands.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has been around since Walt Disney World opened in 1971, and recently underwent an extensive refurbishment. While the standard rooms received “Moana” theming, the Disney Vacation Club Studios received “soft goods” refurbishments, meaning only the upholstery, art, and related accompaniments were updated.
Kona Café reopened after an extensive refurbishment, with all new seating, décor, 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 replaced, too.
