Walt Disney World is ever changing, and from time to time things need to updating. That is well evidenced by some upcoming work that is in store for one of the first resorts on property, Disney’s Polynesian.
A renovation project is currently taking place at the hotel, and the construction may impact some of the views from some of the buildings. Longhouses that are affected include Buildings 5 (Hawaii), 9 (Tokelau), 10 (Tahiti), and 11 (Rapa Nui). There may some noise that will bleed through, most likely during daytime hours.
In addition, beginning some time next month, it appears that a portion of the east parking lot, near Building 11 (Rapa Nui) will close temporarily.
A few amenities will also be impacted, as access to the beach area on the eastern side of the resort will be unavailable to guests. This will include the Sunset Point area. The remainder of the resort will remain available for guests to enjoy.
Of course, rumors are floating around that this very well could be the start of Disney Vacation Club at the Polynesian; however, that has certainly not been confirmed by Disney.
