Changes at Poly!
From Zach Riddley, Walt Disney World Site Portfolio Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering: I’m thrilled to share the first look at the new arrival experience from our design teams coming to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort! As you can see in the rendering above, we were inspired by the iconic mid-20th century architecture that the Polynesian is famous for. The colors, patterns and textures found throughout the resort are reflected in the design of the new porte cochere with a high-pitched open-truss roof covered in a thatch style and a bold façade that complements the Longhouses. The monorail station will be transformed with bold new wooden screens covered with geometric patterns in bright, tropical colors. The Polynesian is a fan favorite and our Imagineering and Walt Disney World teams are excited to bring these new changes to life in this iconic resort. Check out @disneyparksblog for more detail on the design and all of the exciting changes coming to the Polynesian in summer 2021.
