Demolition is continuing at Disney's Polynesian Resort to clear land for the construction of the new Disney Vacation Club tower.

The walkway from the Polynesian Resort to the Grand Floridian is currently still open, with a new fence installed blocking the demolition work.

The new tower will be built on the site of the former Spirit of Aloha Dinner show at the Luau Cove with a planned opening in 2024.

It is extremely rare to find any hotel that still has clock radios in rooms.

Theres going to be lots of pilings that need to be driven as its all sand. Going to be noisy during the day.

Tuning to the AM band and the static will give you the same sound. :)

I hope those pilings disappear into the ground like the site of the mediterranean resort, so they can't build this disaster.

We'll be there in March too! Totally opposite end of the resort so you'll be removed no matter what. I used to live in the city and found a good white noise machine or fan helps. Compared to NYC 46th st, these horns are nothing! Just a helpful hint. Also double check the sliding door is tight. You can hear them softly in Pago Pago too if you like the sound. This is one of the best noise machines I've tried. And I have tried a bunch

I just use the BetterSleep app on my phone for white noise. Set it to “heavy rain” which is one of the free options. Perfect.

Get a travel-sized white noise machine. It has made an amazing difference for me when I travel.

Yeah I don't expect any of the existing DVC buildings to notice any construction noise for the length of this project.

In some rooms I have barely noticed them and others they woke me up. Not sure of the how and why but good luck!

Yes, I’ve heard about the ferry horns. My 7 year old is not the best sleeper so hopefully we can request a box fan to block out some of the noise 😂

I loooove hearing the boat horns from our room at the various resorts. It's one of the things we really missed when staying at Gran Destino. Can't wait to be back at Beach Club next year and hear the Friendship boats!

Lake view is as far away from the construction as you can be. However you do get the joy of the late night ferry horns to make up for it :). All in all I really like the Moorea building and laundry is in there if that matters to you.
