Walt Disney World has announced that Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will not reopen until summer 2021.
Originally scheduled to reopen on Aug. 12 before being pushed back to Oct. 4, guests will now have to wait even longer to visit the Magic Kingdom resort (and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto).
As a result of upcoming refurbishment to the Great Ceremonial House, monorail service to the resort will be temporarily suspended starting this October.
This closure will allow Disney the time to make enhancements to the guest rooms at the Polynesian, which will be inspired by the Pacific Ocean and its islands. In addition, patterns, textures and other details will be inspired by the animated film “Moana.”
Here’s a look at the updated reopening timeline through next summer:
- Sept. 21, 2020 – Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Oct. 14, 2020 – Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
- Nov. 1, 2020 – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
- Summer 2021 – Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Keep in mind that these reopening dates are still subject to change and reservations can be modified if needed.
