TikTok user @jportwood19 shared the following video of water pouring from the ceiling into BouTiki. Cast Members had placed several towels on the floor but a puddle was still spreading throughout the store.

Kona Cafe is above BouTiki and seems to be the source of the leak. The restaurant is also closed with industrial fans set up to dry the space out.

For guests with Kona Cafe reservations, Disney is instead offering meals at the recently-reopened 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa or Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Stay tuned for updates about the Polynesian leak and reopenings of BouTiki and Kona Cafe.
