A set of permits filed with the state show what appear to be plans for the resort’s new DVC tower.
The permits call for “the demolition of the existing facilities and the construction of (a) new building with parking and support amenities”.
The documents also include diagrams that show the layout of the project, including the location of the new building, parking and swimming pool.
The new villas will be built in an area of the resort that includes the Spirit of Aloha dinner and show building, which has been permanently closed to make way for the expansion.
Disney first announced plans for new DVC villas at the Polynesian Village Resort in March. Although the company didn’t share many details about the addition, officials said at the time that the project would include new entertainment and dining options.
Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows currently has 380 DVC villas. It is unclear how many bedrooms the new tower will have.
The proposed DVC tower is expected to open in late 2024.
