Polynesian Village Resort monorail station confirmed to be closed through to July 2021

Sep 22, 2020 in "Walt Disney World Monorail System"

Posted: Tuesday September 22, 2020 10:14am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

As part of the refurbishment work at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, the monorail service to the hotel will be suspended for 8 months.

The monorail station will be closed from November 2 2020, and will reopen in mid-July 2021 alongside the reopening of the main hotel. For guests staying at the villas or bungalows during the closure, transportation options will include direct bus transportation to all four parks and watercraft to the Magic Kingdom. There is also a walkway to the Transportation and Ticket Center to access the monorail from there.

The resort monorail will continue to operate during the Polynesian work, traveling through the station but not stopping.

You forgot about the posts which point out misspellings. ;)

New update, which means this is the mandated "Will the pools of water and gardens be returning?" question post after every single update. Que the next couple of posts of outrage even though we do not actually know the answers. Add in the standard post about IP integration, a post or two about the former lobby renovation, and a extreme off topic post (Epcot Barges/Yeti/Skyliner Burning/Your Choice Here). Congrats, I just saved us a half to full page of useless posts. ;)

My thought is that they are bringing some of the Moana details into them.

DVC Poly only opened 6 years ago so hard goods now feels really aggressive, especially for the Disney we've known. I'd love to be wrong. Poly is one of my home resorts and I'd love to see hard goods refurbished because it'd extend life before rooms feel beat up and out of date.

Seems like a rather larger contractor for just a soft goods refurb.

That's also encompassing the three DVC longhouses. I believe there was news in December that DVC moved up the scheduled Poly 2022 soft goods refurbishment to 2021. I'm not expecting hard goods like has been done with other parts of the resort, but I guess we'll see!

Whole bunch more permits today including the rest of the bungalows which I assume are also getting the Moana makeover...

We're staying there 8/21-25 ("switching teams" to WDW after 4 nights and 3 days at Universal), so we'll be headed out as you're checking in. I'll message you if we're leaving any food or beverages and see if there's anything you want! 🙂 (We upstate NYers have to stick together, LOL! I'm in the Finger Lakes, but I see your info. lists your residence as Niagara County, which is where my father's whole extended family has lived for generations. "It's a small world after all!")

Haha yeah GF just isn't my style. Poly or bust lol. How long are you staying? I'll be there 8/25-8/30.

Weather_Lady6 days ago

You are worried over nothing. 🙂 We've been booked for an 8/21 arrival at the Polynesian ever since reservations reopened. I've been periodically checking availability and watched as various room categories and dates became unavailable. It's fully booked now, but it's been a gradual process, so I think the unavailability you're seeing is the result of normal booking patterns for a popular resort that's reopening with a brand-new refurb (and of course, inventory is down if they're not booking club level... unless they decide to offer those same rooms as non-club rooms for awhile). ...and they'd _better_ be on schedule! I'd rather stay in a leaky tent on the Polynesian beach than get bumped to the Grand Floridian! (Just a matter of personal taste). 😅

Or autoclosing doors with a proximity switch in the door frame. Door opens/AC goes off - Door closes/AC goes on. Monetary and green savings.

They might be accessible rooms.
