One of Walt Disney World’s luxury resorts is getting a makeover based on one of its new characters: Moana.
The entertainment and hospitality giant had previously postponed the reopening of its Polynesian Village Resort due to the coronavirus, but it will now take time to renovate the resort’s guest rooms and the grand ceremonial house, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The decor of the rooms and parts of the resort would be updated to reflect the 2016 animated film of the same name.

The renovation would be inspired by the fictional island of Montunui de “Moana”, as well as the Pacific Ocean. Previous updates to the Polynesian Village Resort included amenities, products, and menu items from its 2002 animated film “Lilo and Stitch”.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a five-minute drive from Magic Kingdom Park and is also located near the Seven Seas Lagoon. It is one of the oldest resorts in Disney World – opened in 1971 – but also one of its most expensive, because it is classified as a “Disney Deluxe” hotel.
