In December I spent at week on the East Coast at Walt Disney World. If you follow my regular posts from Disneyland you know I enjoy looking at what changed and is changing around the parks. AllEars asked me to share some of the construction pictures I took as I explored Walt Disney World. This four-post series will look at Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Disney Springs, and the Polynesian Village Resort and feature a subset of my pictures. If you would like to view more from this trip here is my trip summary with links.

This part takes a look at the projects at the Polynesian Village Resort.

The lobby area was behind curtains at the time (it opened a few days after I left).

A small section of beach was open for resort guests between the DVC and the pool projects.

I guessed that this is a spa/hot tub off of the master bedroom. The other patio door could be the family room.

  1. So what is the view now for people on the first floor?

    Jackie -> It is a little hard to tell from the angles but it looks like they will have a beach/bungalow view and maybe a garden or whatever goes on that peninsula the bungalows surround.

  2. We are DVC members and can’t wait until they are done. Right on the water, view of the Kingdom and Fireworks every night in a tropical setting. Who needs Fiji when you have Disney!
    See you in June.
