Guest Pays For Deluxe Disney Resort, Gets Construction View

Polynesian Village Construction View

When Guests decide to take a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, there is a lot of planning that goes on. One of the most important parts of planning is deciding where to stay. Guests who choose to stay on property at a Disney World hotel have almost 30 amazing hotels to choose from. Disney wants to accommodate as many Guests as possible, so the hotels range in price from Value (the cheapest) to Deluxe and Deluxe Villas (the most expensive).

There are eight Deluxe Resort at Walt Disney World Resort. This includes Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Polynesian Village Resort, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Wilderness Lodge, Beach Club Resort, Disney’s Yacht Club, the Contemporary Resort, and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. These Resorts typically have the best amenities, nicer rooms, and are closer to one of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks.

One of the most popular Deluxe Resorts is Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. The Resort is one of three located along the monorail route and takes Guests straight from the Resort to Magic Kingdom Park. The stunning Resort takes Guests right into the heart of Polynesia and encourages them to embrace the “spirit of aloha.” The Resort also has incredible dining options like Kona Café, Tambu Lounge, and ‘Ohana.

Polynesian Village is currently undergoing a lot of construction as Disney builds a new tower that will be for Disney Vacation Club members. The tower is going in front of some hotel rooms, and those rooms no longer have the great view they once did. Many of the rooms at Polynesian Village look out onto the lush grounds, Seven Seas Lagoon, and the Magic Kingdom.

Redditor u/qalpi shared a view from their room at Polynesian Village. It stared right at the building, and the area right in front of their room was filled with construction materials. Typically, the cheapest rooms at the Resort average just under $700 per night, but Disney does sometimes offer discounts depending on when the Guest is visiting.

The reactions from commenters were somewhat mixed. Disney has been very direct about the construction and gave Guests plenty of notice that it would be happening. The Redditor ran the risk of getting that view when they booked the specific type of room they did — which was a Resort view.

Others were more sympathetic. Polynesian Village is one of the most expensive Resorts at Walt Disney World, and no Guest should pay a premium price to look at a construction zone. Some suggested that the Redditor should ask to have their room moved, while others said that they should keep the room, but ask for a gift card or a credit because of the view.

The OP — original poster — said that they were attempting to change rooms. They said that the construction noise was loud and they have two babies. The concierge was working on finding them a new room. However, OP was not thrilled when one Cast Member said, “Well, you had a room ready, but you didn’t want it.” Thankfully, it worked out, and the OP was able to get a room that was not on top of the construction.
