We noticed further development at the Disney Vacation Club Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort today, as two of the previously standing structures are now joined by concrete walls.
Vacation Club Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
The construction crew continues to work on the foundation for an additional structure to be added to this site.
A large amount of construction materials are still present, and crews are actively working on the project.
We reported on progress for this third structure last week.
Concrete walls were built connecting the two previously reported structures. See the older photo below for reference. This photo was taken about a week ago.
Two stories have already been added in front of this new addition. Wooden safety bars have been installed on some windows.
A crane lifts additional concrete slabs into place.
Some of the windows are larger than others. Check out the concept art below to get an idea of what they might look like when the building is finished.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Disney’s Polynesian Resort has recently undergone an extensive renovation. While standard rooms received “Moana” theming, Disney Vacation Club Studios got “soft goods” renovations, meaning the upholstery, art, and more were updated.
The hotel received a new Monorail station and port-cochére. The entrance to the resort was redone to match the new structures. Kona Café recently reopened after an extensive renovation, with all new seating, decor, and more. The Kiki Tikis Splash Play Area and Lava Pool slide were also recently renovated.
The carpets and most upholstery in the lobby of the Great Ceremonial House were recently replaced.

Next to the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort turns 50 in 2021. The resort opened on October 1, 1971 along with Disney’s Contemporary Resort (Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds also celebrated its 50th anniversary, but it wasn’t opened until November 1971).
It’s also home to a favorite tiki bar, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. Guests do not need a hotel reservation to visit the on-site bars and restaurants.
