While the Disney Vacation Club villas will continue to operate, hotel rooms at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort will not reopen anytime soon.
The Polynesian hotel rooms were scheduled to welcome back guests beginning on October 4, 2020. That reopening has now been significantly delayed.
Revised opening plans now call for the hotel rooms to remain closed until summer of 2021. Disney has been in planning stages for an upcoming refurbishment to the resort's guest rooms. The coming months will be used to refurbish the hotel rooms and perform work in the Great Ceremonial House.
The Disney Vacation Club villas and bungalows will continue to operate, along with most resort services. Several amenities have not yet returned from the COVID-19 closure, including restaurant 'Ohana, Trader Sam's Grog Grotto and Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. The continued closure of nearly 500 hotel rooms casts doubt on the timeline for adding further amenities. The resort's Tambu Lounge reseumed operations 2 weeks ago after being shuttered since March.
