Disney’s Polynesian to Opening Date Pushed Back to Summer 2021

With a phased approach to reopening, Disney is continuing to welcome Guests back to Walt Disney World Resort and it’s associated hotels.

As Disney continues to reopen additional Disney Resort hotels to Guests, they are modifying the reopening date for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort which will reopen next summer. This schedule adjustment also allows Disney to complete some refurbishment work at the Resort hotel, including enhancements to the Great Ceremonial House and Guest rooms. The work is expected to begin in early October and Disney looks forward to sharing more about these changes at a later date.

The Villas and Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will remain open during this refurbishment.

We understand the amount of planning that goes into a Disney vacation and we are reaching out to you about your upcoming reservations that are impacted by these changes, at least four weeks before their arrival. We will be advocating for all clients booked with Royal Escapes and handling the necessary changes for your upcoming stay.

Impacted guests may also be receiving email communication from Disney about your upcoming reservation. Please see an example of that communication below.

SAMPLE GUEST COMMUNICATION
“Important news about your Disney Resort stay
We hope you’re looking forward to your upcoming vacation as much as we’re looking forward to having you here. Unfortunately, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is no longer planned to be open on the dates of your visit. We understand the inconvenience this may cause––especially if your plans had already been changed before.

Please accept our sincerest apologies and know how much we appreciate you choosing to stay with us. We’re happy to reaccommodate you at one of the Disney Resort hotels that will be open during your stay. Of course, this will happen at no additional charge. Please contact your Travel Professional to discuss the Resort and room type options available to you and to assist with modifying your Disney Resort hotel. This modification will have no impact to other vacation experiences you may have booked, such as Theme Park reservations or dining. 

Thanks for your patience as we all navigate these times together.”

Disney will continue to monitor the constantly changing environment and its impact on the state of Florida as they find the right time to welcome back even more Guests.
