The reimagined room are inspired by the Pacific Ocean, which is where it draws its color pallet from. It also is inspired by Disney’s Moana. Look closely and you’ll find some friends from the film hidden in the details.

There is also new furniture and fixtures in each room that continue to be inspired by the Pacific Ocean. In the bathrooms, Imagineers were inspired by the sandy ocean floor for both the tiles and carvings in the vanity. The goal for all of the patterns in the room were to bring the feel of the ocean waves and tropical flowers to life for guests staying there.

Rooms aren’t the only things getting worked on at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort however. The Great Ceremonial House is also getting some tender loving care. The porte cohere is currently being worked on, along with the Monorail station. The porte cohere will soon feature a high-pitched, open-truss roof that is covered in a thatch style with pops of color. The Monorail Station is getting new wooden screens that also includes tropical colors. All of this will recreate the open and airy vibe found in the South Seas!

First Look: Inside the Reimagined Guest Rooms of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Inspiration from ‘Moana’ adds new storytelling to Disney Resorts Collection at Walt Disney World Resort

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (March 5, 2021) – Today Walt Disney World Resort revealed the first look inside reimagined guest rooms at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, one of the most popular Disney Resort hotels at the Central Florida vacation destination. The resort is now accepting bookings for late July 2021, welcoming guests to rooms featuring a new color palette inspired by the Pacific Ocean and its many islands.

Along with all-new furnishings and fixtures, the rooms will include details, patterns and textures from the hit Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Moana” – those who look carefully may discover several characters and references to the story, including the heart of Te Fiti. In addition, the sandy ocean floor inspires the bathroom tiles and vanity’s carved details, complementing the fresh, modern overall approach to these reimagined rooms.

The resort is also developing a dramatic new porte cochere that will enhance the arrival experience as guests pull up to its Great Ceremonial House. The inviting design features a high-pitched, open-truss roof covered in a thatch style with pops of color. The area’s new open and airy vibe will be complemented by four chandeliers inspired by glass floats, fishing nets and oversized bamboo elements mirroring the chandelier inside the lobby. In addition, the resort’s Monorail station located above the porte cochere is receiving new wooden screens with geometric patterns in tropical colors, adding to the overall ambience of the entrance.

Drawing inspiration from enduring fantasies of the South Pacific, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a tropical oasis along the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon, across the water from Magic Kingdom Park. Open since 1971, the resort transports guests to a romanticized American version of the South Seas.

Magic Around Every Corner in the Disney Resorts Collection

The Disney Resort hotels of Walt Disney World offer a rich tapestry of unique and varied experiences that weave together to create the Disney Resorts Collection, where legendary storytelling, immersive detail and dedicated guest service extend beyond the Walt Disney World theme parks to every moment of a guest’s stay, with magic around every corner. From the windswept plains of an African savanna to the lush forests of the Pacific Northwest to the charm of a seaside boardwalk and so much more, Disney Resort hotels keep guests surrounded in Disney magic for every moment of their visit. These fantastic settings are inspired by worlds both real and imagined, giving guests a bevy of options for stories they want to explore and create for themselves.

Disney Resort hotel guests can also enjoy the ease and convenience of traveling around Walt Disney World via fun, complimentary transportation. Options include a train in the sky on the world-famous Monorail, flying high on Disney Skyliner, cruising along serene waterways on various watercraft or traveling to all four theme parks and Disney Springs on colorfully decorated Disney buses. Some locations are even within walking distance of a Disney theme park.

The Disney Resorts Collection continues to evolve, infusing more Disney touches and enhancing guest experiences across The Most Magical Place on Earth, from Disney’s Riviera Resort, to Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, to the reimagined lobby at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, to surprise character sightings and much more. The reimagining of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is the latest example of these enhancements as Walt Disney World prepares for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” beginning Oct. 1, 2021, in honor of its 50thanniversary.

Guests can customize their vacation planning for Walt Disney World more than ever before, whether they’re planning a quiet getaway for two, a family reunion or anything in between. For more on Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and the Disney Resorts Collection, visit DisneyWorld.com.
