Disney World's Polynesian Resort Has Reopened with a New Moana-Inspired Makeover: See the Photos
The reimagined resort opened on July 19 with new rooms and decor inspired by Disney's Princess Moana
One of Walt Disney World's most iconic resorts has officially returned — with a Moana makeover.
Disney's Polynesian Village Resort reopened on Monday after nearly a year of reconstruction. The resort opened with the Magic Kingdom in 1971 and has been a favorite of parkgoers ever since. In September 2020, Disney announced that the resort would not be reopening with the park as originally scheduled due to plans for major renovations. (It shut down in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.)
With the updates complete, all visitors who book at the reimagined Polynesian Village resort will now receive a Moana-themed room.
Guest rooms are designed with the film in mind, featuring photos of the Disney princess and other characters from the movie, along with stunning wallpaper that may remind some of the animated tattoos of Dwayne Johnson's beloved character Maui.
