The Spirit of Aloha building at the Polynesian Village Resort is now completely demolished. The demolition began in March and was completed last week. Guests can now see Disney is gearing up for the construction of the new Disney Vacation Club tower, which is scheduled to open in late 2024, from the resort monorail.
A Major Addition To Disney’s Polynesian Resort
The resort has undergone several major renovations over the years, but this is the first time that such as extensive addition has been made to this popular DVC resort. The new DVC wing is rumored to feature a more varied assortment of room types, as currently the Polynesian Resort only offers studios or 2 bedroom bungalows to DVC members. The new villas contained within the new DVC wing would be a welcome addition for guests looking for a room that accommodates more guests than the existing studios, but costs fewer vacation points than the currently offered bungalows.
