I’m going to take you along on a walking tour of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World. It is currently undergoing lots of exciting changes. I am lucky enough I can visit the resorts whenever the mood strikes me so I thought I would keep everyone up to date with photos of the resort as the construction continues.
So, pull up a chair and relax while we tour around the resort. If you would like to see a list of the rehabs at the Polynesian, be sure to visit our Rehabs page.
There is construction out front as you pull up to the front door of the Polynesian.
The view here used to be of the beautiful foliage and waterfall as you entered the resort. The check in desk is to your right here.
The plants are hiding the doors you used to use to go outside towards the Volcano pool.
They have put in a nice seating area.
This is the walkway to the boat that will take you to the Magic Kingdom.
A look at the new Disney Vacation Club Villas being built over the water at the resort.
This is where the arcade used to be on the left.
This is where the former art gallery used to be.
The new Pineapple
Walking toward the quiet pool.
There still are beautiful views where you can feel like you have been transported to a tropical paradise. You just have to look harder to find them with all the construction going on. It wasn’t very noisy the day I visited.
This is the walkway to the beach.
I will give Walt Disney World credit for trying to keep up the beautiful appearance of the resort. They were cleaning the windows during my visit.
I am not sure this is a picture postcard view.
A closer look at the villas currently under construction.
You still can find those beautiful vacation photos down by the water. It was very peaceful sitting on the swing watching all the action on the water.
The beautiful Volcano pool is behind the construction walls. I can’t wait to see the new and improved pool area when it reopens in 2015.
Watching the monorail travel overhead never gets old. The family leaving on the path ahead of me paused for a moment to watch also.
I have been accused of wearing rose colored glasses when it comes to Walt Disney World. I think the Polynesian resort is still a good choice when planning a vacation to Walt Disney World, even though it is under construction. If you are aware of the construction before you arrive it won’t come as a shock. I realize that the Volcano pool is not available and the construction takes away from the beauty of the resort. You still can’t beat the view of Magic Kingdom across the water. You have easy transportation right outside the doors with the monorail and boats. You can quickly be in a theme park from this resort.
I will be periodically updating the progress of the rehab at the Polynesian. I will also be doing a series of walking tours around the resorts at Walt Disney World in the coming months. Do you have a favorite resort you would like to see pictures of? Let me know in the comments below. See you in the parks!
