Posted: Wednesday November 2, 2022 9:53am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Here is a quick photo update from the Disney Vacation Club tower construction site at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.

Work is still underway on preparing the site for construction, with crews adding utilities and grading the area.

The banyan tree continues to be prepped for its move, with the entire root structure now in a box ready to be lifted by a crane.

The new DVC tower at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort has a planned opening in 2024.

Agree. We LOVE the Gran Destino. If we can’t get our DVC resort for every day of a trip, we have added that location for a night or two. And the concierge club is fantastic. The food is great and the views from that high up are terrific.

Coronado was not harmed- Gran Destino is a beautiful building that has added to the resort. Now they need a skyliner.

They are part of Ladder 6659 Union. Breaks negotiated in contract.

You mean the Disney Dream Wedding View rooms? That’s an extra $90 a night.

Lower floors are for the poors who can only afford $60k contracts.

I think that ladder is a part-timer. Never seen one get a break so soon into a project, yet there they are, laying down already.

I would've hated being in customer service during the 'castle cake days'!

For the money that place brings they will put a camera on the far side with screens toward the tower, never mess with a Disney bride

Looks like that wedding pavillion is going to have to come down, it's blocking the view of the castle from the lower floors.

This is Disney, sir. That ladder took 4 months to plan and construct and cost $13.4 million. But it is prettier than any Epic Universe ladder.

The form carpenter needed a ladder so he made one, probably took less than 2 minutes

What it lacks in thickness, it will make up for with height.
