Construction Update: Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Since it’s the start of a new week, MickeyBlog is back at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World to see if there’s been any progress on the construction of the new Disney Vacation Club Villas tower.
Last year, Disney announced that they would not be reopening the Spirit of Aloha dinner show. Instead, this area of the Polynesian would be demolished to make way for new Disney Vacation Club Villas.
Disney started the demolition last year at the Polynesian and as you can see from these images, it is still ongoing.
The new DVC building at the Poly will feature lakefront views.
With it will come additional amenities like new dining and swimming areas.
The construction process hasn’t really kicked off yet. For now it still looks like an empty lot where Spirit of Aloha used to be.
Disney has previously said that the new DVC building at the Polynesian at Walt Disney World will be completed by 2024.
There were some setbacks due to the hurricanes last year which flooded the area.
At the moment, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort does offer some Disney Vacation Club rooms but they’re limited.
Disney’s Polynesian Resort is currently home to Disney Vacation Club studios as well as over-the-water bungalows.
It is expected that the new tower will add more DVC variety including 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom villas.
Currently the Polynesian is home to 380 Disney Vacation Club villas.
