With Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort getting quite the facelift for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary this year, a slew of new permits could signal even more work coming to the Disney Vacation Club side of the resort – including the overwater bungalows.
Permits filed in late-April indicate that extensive work is coming to all of the overwater bungalows as well as the Pago Pago, Moorea, and Takelau longhouses. The work is going to be completed by Balfour Beatty Construction – a contractor that typically takes on some of the larger-scale construction projects around Walt Disney World. Another aspect of the permits that suggests a significant amount of work will be done is that they all expire in November 2022 – well past the standard 1-year expiration date on typical permits.
While Disney has announced that there will be a new arrival experience at the Great Ceremonial House, and a Moana-themed overhaul of regular guest rooms, they have not shared any concept art for the Disney Vacation Club section of the resort. A refresh of the DVC section was announced back in December 2020.
