Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Previews New Moana-Inspired Guest Rooms
Jeff Vahle, President of Walt Disney World Resort, took to social media to share all the excitement over the Moana rooms with a behind-the-scenes look. He wrote,
“Spent yesterday morning checking out the new renovations at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. I’m always impressed by the attention to detail that goes into designing our parks and resorts, and the new rooms inspired by Moana deliver plenty of fun elements for our Guests to discover and enjoy from the animated film.”
Vahle added, “Thank you to the team who welcomed me and our Cast Members for an exclusive “open mouse” of the refurbished rooms. We can’t wait to start welcoming Guests back to the resort this summer. #DisneyCastLife”
The guest room showcases Hawaiian wallpaper art along with Hawaiian traditional prints can be seen within the lamps, tables, and closet spaces, and hues of blues and sand bring this Moana-themed room to life. In other words, it truly is Moana-perfect. You’d think that you were sitting somewhere in the middle of the pacific ocean if it weren’t for the Florida humidity outside your hotel room.
It was reported last summer that the renovations for a Moana-like décor inside the hotel were well underway. In the resort’s hallways, colorful leaf pattern with tattoo designs just like Maui’s from the movie. What’s more, sconce lighting also features a bronze sleeve of tattoo designs.
A Walt Disney World spokesperson confirmed changes to the rooms will include “a Pacific Ocean-inspired color palette as well as details, patterns and textures from Disney’s Moana, an animated film that takes place on the Polynesian island of Motunui.”
