Polynesian Resort Update: The Lobby Reopens (PART 2)

In the previous part of this new photo-update (which can be found by clicking here), we took a close look at the new lobby of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. While that particular area of the resort might have lost some of its charm with this refurbishment, there's no doubt that this project was needed for many reasons, especially due to the fact that the hotel as a whole has been standing for more than 40 years. Let's continue to walk around:

Work also continues on the Nanea Volcano Pool:

Notice how they are actually rebuilding some sections of the volcano. It definitely looks like this particular feature may be staying. That being said, it's starting to look more like a mountain now:

It looks like the slide is staying:

  1. I think those lights hanging from the ceiling look horrible.

    I get that they wanted to make more seating areas, but why not try to incorporate more water features in the area. It would have been cool if there was kind of a "river" going around the seating area with "bridges" to get to it. In the corners there could have been a small waterfall or something.

  2. I love the lights and the furniture, but once the Christmas tree leaves, the tiki statue better be huge to be a focal point of the lobby- the rendering made it look pretty small!
