Great Ceremonial House Refurbishment Begins Sept. 28 at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

As previously shared, the Walt Disney World Resort is modifying the reopening date for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, which is now scheduled to reopen in mid-July 2021. This schedule adjustment also allows the resort to complete some refurbishment work, including enhancements to the Great Ceremonial House and Guest rooms.

The Villas and Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will remain open during this refurbishment, as will many of the offerings inside the Great Ceremonial House.


To complete the refurbishment, work will take place at the Great Ceremonial House Sunday nights through Thursday nights, from 10 p.m.–4:30 a.m. beginning on October 4; as a result, there will be some changes to the Guest experience:
  • On Sept. 28, the Front Desk area will move to a temporary location at Pago Pago, building #11­­­.
  • The porte cochere and front entrance will be unavailable beginning Sept. 28. Guests arriving by personal vehicle or Disney’s Magical Express will be directed to the right from the security kiosk.
  • Operating hours will be adjusted for the following locations beginning Oct. 4:
    • Kona Café: Sun.–Thu.: 7:30 a.m.–8:30 p.m., Fri. & Sat.: 7:30 a.m.–9 p.m.
    • Moana Mercantile: 8 a.m.–9:30 p.m.
    • Pineapple Lanai: 10 a.m.–9 p.m.
    • Tambu Lounge: Sun.–Thu.: 2–9 p.m., Fri. & Sat.: 4–11 p.m.
  • The monorail station at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will be closed beginning November 2.
When the refurbishment is complete, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort will feature a new porte cochere, entryway, and a modified monorail station. The Great Ceremonial House will continue to include the architectural detail of the crossbeams, though fans who look closely will notice fewer beams, creating a more sophisticated, cleaner design.

Additional details regarding this refurbishment will be shared in the near future.
