Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Unveils New Planned Entryway

Disney's Polynesian

This morning, Disney Parks Blog unveiled the new concept art for the entryway to Disney’s Polynesian Resort! The resort has been closed since the park originally closed back in March and has been scheduled to reopen next year due to refurbishment. This photo has us very excited about the future!

This renovation is part of the grand transformation of locations around Walt Disney World Resort just in time for the 50th anniversary next October! In the Parks Blog post, Imagineer Zach Riddley discusses how the team was inspired by the 20th-century Polynesian architecture and textures,

While the entryway gets a grand makeover, the monorail station will be getting a colorful makeover that makes you feel the spirit of Aloha from the moment you arrive! Though the entryway and monorail station will be undergoing a magical transformation, guests will still have access to the Great Ceremonial House and connected restaurants and shopping locations.

I am personally incredibly excited to see Disney’s Polynesian Resort get this new look, as this hotel has always been one of my favorite stops on the monorail loop! I think that this will be the perfect way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort and this resort!

What do you think of the new concept art? Check it out below and let us know in the comments!
