Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is approaching its renovation finale with cast members and Disney Vacation Club Members previewing the new over-the-water bungalows and even taking a look at the upcoming Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. But the resort is also celebrating the completion of its new lobby with its signature new happy Tiki statue taking the helm at the center of the space. The minimalist feeling of the statue and the new modern styled lobby is quite a radical departure from the lobby that came before, replacing most of the latter’s charm with the utility of more seating and open floor space. Disney is hoping to present a vibrant new future for one of Walt Disney World’s staple resorts and is in the process of upgrading and adding to the resort’s amenities. We’ll have more from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort soon but for now marvel in the glory of a happy Tiki.
