Disney World Hotel Changes

Photos: Sneak Peek at Changes Coming to Grand Floridian, Polynesian Resorts

Disney has confirmed that 2023 will bring more changes to several of the Resort Hotels at The Walt Disney World Resort, and on December 15, Disney Parks gave fans a look into what they can expect, especially at two of the Monorail Resorts around the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

Starting with the Grand Floridian, Disney Parks Blog states,

“2023 will also be a momentous year for Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa as it celebrates its 30th anniversary on July 1! The resort has been receiving some grand touches that weave familiar storybook charm into the Victorian elegance of this flagship resort. Guest rooms are currently being updated as we speak with more to come as the beloved Grand Floridian ushers in its third decade of magic. The ongoing renovation will also include an upcoming refurbishment of the lobby, which will maintain the classic theming you know and love with some fresh new enhancements.”

Disney Parks also states that Citricos will get a Mary Poppins Returns-theme.

Moving over to the Polynesian, Disney Parks states,

Similar updates have graced the shores of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, where we’ve spent special attention merging the heritage and charm of the South Seas with modern touches and even patterns and textures from the hit Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Moana” in guest rooms.

Nearly all elements of this resort have been refreshed in the past few years, from an open and inviting lobby, to dining locations, outdoor spaces and more!

Disney World Guests have been waiting in anticipation for the Polynesian to reopen its table service restaurant Kona Cafe for some time now as well.

These renovations also come as Pixar’s The Incredibles have taken over the third Magic Kingdom Area Resort, Disney’s Contemporary Resort as well.

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to update our readers on Disney Parks news and stories as more developments come to light.
