A construction issue at the Polynesian Resort is the cause for the closure of almost all restaurants at the resort. Here are the details.
Construction Crews at the Polynesian
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is currently undergoing a massive refurbishment. The monorail station, Great Ceremonial House, and the rooms are all being reimagined. While we are so excited to see the finished product, right now there is a lot of construction.
Just the other day, we shared photos of the most recent update. Crews completely demolished the monorail platform, with just the emergency steps left behind. Additionally, almost all the crossbeams have been taken out.
You can see all the photos for yourself HERE.
The refurbishment is expected to be complete by summer 2021. Interestingly, the Disney World website indicates the rooms may be available by mid-July.
The DVC rooms are currently open, meaning there are still restaurants and shopping outlets open to Guests. Unfortunately, there was a break in the main water line at the Polynesian Resort today, January 23.
As a result, Disney has closed almost all of the dining options at the resort. The only exception is Capt. Cook’s. Guests can grab items to go at this time. As you can see in the photo below, I am not able to attempt a regular mobile food order for Capt. Cook’s.
It is unclear if crews will have the issue fixed by the end of the day or if this will continue to affect restaurants into tomorrow. We will be sure to keep you updated if it does!
Currently, not every restaurant has reopened at the Polynesian – even with a break in the main water line. ‘Ohana, Oasis Bar & Grill, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace, Kona Island, and the Spirit of Aloha show have not reopened yet since the closure last year.
