Polynesian Village Resort Great Ceremonial House - September 2020
Posted: Tuesday September 29, 2020 10:03am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The parking lot at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is now full of storage containers as the resort prepares for its upcoming refurbishment.

Currently the front desk has been relocated to a temporary area at the Pago Pago building, and the front arrival entrance is unavailable. Access to the Great Ceremonial House is via the side and back entrance only.

We visited the resort for a look around prior to the start of the work - click the gallery for a last look at the Great Ceremonial House in its current form.

There was previously an entrance/exit into that lot from Floridian way for working cast to use. It was recently removed as part of the Floridian Way project. This entrance is meant as a replacement for that one.

I’m willing to be wrong, but no one knows yet what they’re rebuilding. So shouldn’t we all wait a little longer before deciding what’s going in that space?

Yeah even so, just having another entrance they have to secure and turn lanes form that road.

What hurts almost as much as losing the water feature in the lobby was the (honey I shrunk the) fountain they built instead which doesn't work half the time. I still remember seeing the construction of it a few days before they reopened the lobby, I was thinking, there's no way they can almost be done either the new fountain, it's just a pile of small rocks! My father in-law calls it "the urinal"

It will be gated.

I'm surprised they want another car entrance into the TTC lot from that road.

A permit was filed today to construction a new auto bridge next to the existing pedestrian bridge in the location shown below. I assume that parking lot is used for Polynesian cast members.

The main lobby is... Lacking... Taking out one of the most unique features in all Disney parks (waterfall) took away a lot.
