Demo Underway Ahead of New DVC Villas at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Crews have started demolishing the old Spirit of Aloha building at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to make way for new Disney Vacation Club (DVC) villas. The new villas, which will sit along Seven Seas Lagoon, will be in a multi-story building that will significantly change the look and feel of the area.

Guests riding on the Monorail can see demo advancing quickly on the former dinner theatre space.

An aerial view shows that a large chunk of the building remains, but its days are numbered.

We can compare the current demo to the first piece of concept art Disney included in the original announcement.

All of the old Spirit of Aloha infrastructure will be removed and the new DVC building will sit alongside Seven Seas Lagoon. The new building might encroach a bit on the Wedding Pavilion at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Disney announced the new DVC villas at Disney’s Polynesian Resort are expected to open in late 2024.
