Welcome back to another edition of ParkSpotting! Today we will take a look at what is new and happening at the Magic Kingdom with a quick little stop at the Polynesian Village Resort.
Polynesian Village Resort may have received a new name but the resort is still very much a construction zone. The Moana Mercantile recently opened back up again from a basic refreshment refurbishment.
Some new digital screens with park hours also recently showed up and makes the Polynesian look cool and high tech.
This is the current view of the pool area, as you can see construction is in full swing and there isn’t very much to look at right now. Very far in the distance you can still spot Cinderella’s Castle which probably makes the people dining at Ohana very happy.
The new Pineapple Lanai opened in recent months and I finally got a chance to check it out. The locations right now comes across as a little basic in the theming department but will surely look better after the construction is finished.
The popular Dole Whip soft serve is the main star at this spot but regular visitors to the Polynesian will surely miss the days of the Dole Whip self serve they had inside Captain Cooks.
Upstairs at the Kona Cafe, the Kona Island bar has opened up again and is still serving the popular sushi. New on the menu is this Hawaiian Shaved Ice.
Kona Island is always a popular spot at the Polynesian mainly because you don’t need an ADR for enjoying some of their yummy food.
I decided to take the boat over to the Magic Kingdom and take a peek at the ongoing construction of the DVC Bungalows.
