Construction Update on the New DVC Tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Construction crews are preparing the land for the new Disney Vacation Club (DVC) tower that’s coming to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. The tower will sit on the site of the old Spirit of Aloha Dinner show, and will dramatically change the feel of one of Walt Disney World’s original resorts.

Over the last few months, we’ve seen the old Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show building demolished and the guest walkway to the Magic Kingdom temporarily moved. Now, the land has been cleared and new construction is set to begin.

Disney is trying to salvage one of the trees that stood in this area. Crews are using large trucks to transplant the tree.

It looks like the site is almost ready for foundation work to begin. That’s a significant step in this project as it’ll be the first indication of how large the DVC tower will be.

Disney’s original concept art shows a tower that’s roughly six stories at its shortest point and about eight stories at its tallest point. Those are estimates based on the art below.

As always, concept art isn’t always an accurate representation of the final project. We can assume the Polynesian resort’s DVC tower will be roughly the same size as depicted in the art, but the actual appearance and footprint might vary.

The new DVC tower at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is expected to open in 2024.
