Kiki Tikis Splash Play Area at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will be closed as it undergoes a refurbishment from February through March 2021. Disney says that guests may enjoy the Lava Pool and slide and the Oasis Pool. The water play area first opened in 2015 and I have a lot of visitors to my article this week looking for closure information so I wanted to post this update.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is undergoing a relatively major refurbishment as the standard rooms remain closed (the Disney Vacation Club portion is open). Summer is the official opening timeframe for the resort. The standard rooms are receiving a “Moana” update and the Great Ceremonial House has construction out front as a new porte cochere is being added. The monorail station is currently closed as it receives an update as well.
Here is a look at concept art for the future entrance of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
We have stayed there twice since October, including a couple of weeks ago. The construction was visible but not particularly intrusive. ‘Ohana and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto are still closed as is Disney’s Spirit of Aloha.
I also posted a photo walk from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to the Magic Kingdom and then on to Disney’s Contemporary Resort last month.
