Video: Progress Update on Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s DVC Tower

Disney's Polynesian Resort DVC Tower

Construction of Disney Vacation Club (DVC)’s latest addition to the Walt Disney World Resort looks “ready to go” along the edge of the Seven Seas Lagoon.

The area of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort which once held the beloved Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, will soon be home to a massive, modern tower with an updated waterfront. But at the moment, it remains an active construction site that can be conveniently spied on by Guests from the Walt Disney World Monorail System. And that’s just what were able to do recently.

Posting the story to TikTok, the person notes, “Demolition of Spirit of Aloha area looks complete … Resort opening date currently set for 2024.”

Disney Fanatic has previously reported that the expansion will feature new DVC villas, a new parking lot, a new pool area, and the incorporation of a “sea wall” promenade instead of a sandy beach area that is found elsewhere around the monorail hotel. It is still unclear how the construction will affect Guests’ ability to walk from the Poly to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, as well as what level of accessibility Guests staying in other areas of the Resort will have to this area.
