FIRST LOOK: Newly remodeled rooms at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort feature Moana

Inside Disney's New Deluxe Rooms at the Polynesian Village Resort

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is scheduled to reopen in Summer 2021. When it does, it will feature newly remodeled hotel rooms that will immerse guests in the spirit of the South Pacific.

The new look includes new furnishings and fixtures, plus modern nice-to-haves like USB charging ports, large screen smart TVs, clean lines, and that hardwood floor look.

Disney’s design team took inspiration from the sandy ocean floor for the tiles and carved details in the vanity. The colorful patterns found throughout the room will transport you to a tropical destination in patterns that evoke undulating ocean waves and tropical flowers.

The details, of course, are where the magic is found and in the new deluxe rooms, you’ll find elements of Disney’s popular animated feature Moana.

As you explore the room, you’ll discover patterns and design details inspired by Disney’s Moana. Imagineers have also worked in some of the characters from the story along with other design elements from the film, like the heart of Te Fiti.

Guests staying in deluxe level Disney Resorts expect not just a certain level of amenities, but they expect the rooms to meet the standards of modern hotels.

This can be difficult if your hotel was built 50 years ago. But that’s the challenge Disney faced here. Judging by these first photos from the rooms, we have to say this new look is a big success.

What about the DVC rooms?

It was six years ago that the DVC side had its own remodel. Those deluxe villas feature fun Lilo and Stitch related design touches and tropical artwork inspired by Disney artist Mary Blair. Watch our tour of the room with Disney Imagineer.

Alright, I’m ready to book a Polynesian Adventure!

Bookings for dates starting in late July 2021 are now open. Want to book one of these fantastic looking new rooms? Full rack rate might set you back a pretty penny, but you will be immersed in the magic in a Magic Kingdom resort.
