New Oasis Pool area nearing completion
Posted: Friday February 12, 2016 11:34am EST by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Polynesian Village Resort opened most of its updates almost a year ago, but work has continued on reworking the resort's quiet pool area.

In place of the old East quiet pool (see photos of the original) comes the new Oasis Pool, complete with the Oasis Bar and Grill. It also features an expanded deck area, more shade, restrooms and an all new pool.

The area is still having the final touches put in place, but it appears that it could open in the very near future.

I was wondering if this had opened yet and found reports on Twitter stating that the pool soft opened about two weeks ago, just in time for spring break. Edit: I found an article on another site (not sure if I can link) with pictures of a grand opening on March 17.

Photo update as of Thursday, March 3. The Oasis quiet pool is still not open yet, however the outdoor furniture has been delivered. The same brown lounge chairs as over at the feature pool are here also, but there are quite a few of the new orange cushion chairs. These are a real upgrade in comfort. The below two photos is the view at the Oasis bar and grill entrance, with all the new cushioned chairs and tables. The new quiet pool area looks to be a nice "hangout." The new cushioned chairs are also featured under the three pavilions across the pool. Here's one reason the Oasis is probably not open yet. They are taking out a section of concrete near the end of the bar and will have to re-pour this section. I also noticed these "new" benches around the property, in various places, that weren't there a few weeks ago.

@WDWtraveler Thanks for all your updates. Do you know if this is open yet?

Photo update as of Tuesday, Feb. 23. Twelve days after my last photo update, the Polynesian Village Resort Oasis Quiet Pool is still not open. Concrete work is still being done and final touches on the main building/snack bar remain. I still think it will be ready before spring break.

The new pool area is looking really, really nice. The structures look a little less "authentic" than I might've hoped but clearly they're built to last and be relatively maintenance-free, especially when it comes to hurricanes.

I'm assuming in a year or so then the quiet pool at Wilderness Lodge will be similar. As the plans with the expansion showed some kind of new bar/grill coming to the WL quiet pool as part of the cabin DVC expansion

Looks quite nice. A definite upgrade in my opinion.

I know. I was just hoping to get some pixie dusters riled up.

Nice to see this at the Polynesian, I have to say, in my opinion, they did a nice job here.

Wow, the Oasis pool is all but finished and I love what I see. First time these "bubblers" in the pool are mentioned, they look fun. Great update, thank you!
