Demolition crews have arrived at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort to begin clearing Luau Cove ready for construction of the new Disney Vacation Club Tower.

D.H. Griffin Wrecking of Tampa is carrying out the work, which has started promptly after filing a demolition permit in late April.


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.

"We are short of staff to properly provide all the entertainment and wait staff for your stay. This is also why we haven't been able to renovate more rooms. Now, please pardon our Pixie Dust, while we pop up a new DVC tower in record time"-Disney Management

Did anyone watch VGF prior? One interesting thing I found out last week was the CMs were told it was an expansion of PVB at the first call. Obviously things can change either way but that was interesting to me to hear them talking about the zoom where they got limited info on it. They do have computer renderings of the room models too done.

As we get closer,, One possible indication as to whether it will be part of existing Poly DVC or a new seperate may be ROFR on resale. If part, they may increase buy backs to have more points to sell and to maintain value of current Poly. If seperate, buy backs may not increase as the value of current will not increase (can't do 11 mo at Poly 2 w/ points from Poly 1)

Saw some of that last week on the monorail. I know many hate it, but the more I look, the more excited I get.

It's open so far and from the looks of this likely not to be closed soon.
