Patent Reveals More Info on Disney’s Polynesian Resorts’ New DVC Villas

Disney's Polynesian Hotel

It has been a few weeks since the Walt Disney World Resort unveiled its plans to build a new DVC Tower and DVC Villas at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and now it appears some more details have come to light thanks to some recent patents.

Some of these details were shared by Orlando-area Spectrum News 13, which included the map of the proposed area seen below:

It appears that the structure will expand the read of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort even closer to the ground of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. A new pool area is proposed next to some pre-existing buildings, and some renovations to the Seven Seas Lagoon waterfront may also be in the works: a sea wall rather than a beach. But the most notable addition is arguably the new parking lot, the design of which includes the drive-up covered entryway as well as its own gated entrance.

This map appears, then, to match the concept art for the new addition released just under a month ago:

According to Spectrum News 13, “The permits call for ‘demolition of existing facilities and construction of (a) new building with supporting parking and amenities.'” Those existing facilities include–to many fans’ dismay–the location of the now-retired “Spirit of Aloha” dinner show.

It is unclear at this time when construction of the new lodging will begin. But, whenever it does commence, it appears that it will not affect monorail service to and from Magic Kingdom Park as well as Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and EPCOT.

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to keep an eye on this story and will update our readers as more information comes to light. In the meantime, Guests are still able to enjoy everything else this beloved South Pacific themed deluxe Resort has to offer. These include enjoying a Tonga Toast breakfast at Kona Cafe and dinner at ‘Ohana’s inside the Great Ceremonial House, grabbing a quick bite at Captain Cook‘s after enjoying the oasis pool or lava pool, and–of course–having a drink at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.
