Disney is continuing to update the lobby at Disney's Polynesian Resort with a refresh of some of the soft goods.

Over the last week, several new brightly-colored rugs have been installed in the seating areas.

The new color scheme matches some of the blues found in the overhead lighting fixtures.

Hopefully they're better than the plastic ones for the plastic couches in The Contemporary. Nothing screams deluxe like plastic!

Not a fan of the yellow cushions but I like the blue ones that just went out…

It’s tribal but not in the Polynesian sense

Elsewhere I'd really like it but they clash with everything else and may be hard to keep clean

The busy print just under the plants is a bit much b/c the plants are busy looking by nature; it’s a bit too much going on.

When Home Goods has a clearance event, you can’t expect Josh to pass up on that. Wait til you see the new Grand Floridian throw pillows he found.

LOL people will look back at this in years to come and say "what were they thinking?" Looks like complete bargain basement trash. Disney is slowly ruining all their best resorts. It's kind of magical in it's own way to watch happen.

That is not going to age well.

😱Oh. No.Nuh-huh--what in the heck are they thinking??!! The carpet was meh, but this?? I think they sent the Boardwalk Cafe people over to design...

The very busy patterns hide small stains, lowering maintenance costs :)

Looks like Tinkerbell done throwed up. 😳

New Rugs completely clash with existing furniture and looks terrible. Hopefully they change the furniture and then we can judge.

Someone threw up and smeared it all over the sitting area.

I hope someone will post a wide-angle photo of how this all looks together. Separately, I don't see anything remotely cohesive or tiki-esque about the Wayfair oversized-tropical-print dorm room rugs, and the 80's African Art-style Bill Cosby sweater print upholstery. Maybe when viewed in context, they look better? 🤔🤷‍♀️
