Great news coming out of Walt Disney World! Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has received an official reopening date!

That’s all changing in just a few short weeks!

You’ll want to keep in mind some of the resort is currently under construction, as Disney works to make enhancements in time for the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration. This includes lobby and monorail work, as well as guest rooms being enhanced with a Moana-inspired theme.

As far as the Monorail construction goes, Disney states “Please pardon our pixie dust as the renovation of the monorail station at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort continues, monorail service to and from the resort remains temporarily unavailable. Bus service is available to Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT. Watercraft service is also available to Magic Kingdom Park.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
