    Traveling to Disney World May/June 2024. Considering the Polynesian, but wondering if the only construction is the tower or if it will be throughout the resort as well. Further, any details on when exterior tower construction will start to wrap up?

    Hey Erin!

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is one of my top Disney Resorts Collection hotels. It is renowned for its stunning beauty and serene atmosphere, making it a top choice for travelers seeking an immersive tropical getaway. Nestled amidst lush landscaping and swaying palm trees, the resort offers a tranquil oasis that transports guests to the enchanting islands of the South Pacific.

    We love the access and convenience that the Monorail offers and find ourselves doing a Resort hotel tour in the evening, where we check out all of the gift shops at hotels on that Monorail line. In the evening be sure to head to the shores of the beach to catch Happily Ever After and the Electrical Water Pageant.

    Now with all that goodness, it's essential to note that from now through Fall 2024, there will be ongoing work to enhance the resort's exterior. This includes painting the exterior of buildings throughout Disney's Polynesian Village Resort & Bungalows, which could impact some balconies. While this work aims to maintain the resort's pristine appearance, guests may observe and hear painting activities during daytime hours, typically from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. With that being said, at check-in, you could discuss any construction concerns that you may have with a Cast Member. 

    Regarding the construction of the tower, it's an exciting addition to the resort's skyline. However, there isn't a specific timeline for when the exterior tower construction will wrap up. Disney is committed to ensuring that the construction process minimally impacts guests' experiences, and updates regarding the progress will be provided as available.

    Despite these ongoing enhancements, rest assured that Disney's Polynesian Village Resort continues to offer an unforgettable tropical retreat, with its unique blend of relaxation, adventure, and magic awaiting guests during their stay. I personally wouldn’t hesitate to stay here during construction.
