Disney Polynesian Village to be Reborn with Trader Sam’s

Renovations have been happening for a little while now at the Polynesian. Now we actually know what those renovations will bring.

In addition to a completely remodeled lobby, redesigned guest rooms and redesigned feature pool, the Disneyland favorite, Trader Sam's, will be making its east coast debut.

Trader Sam's Grog Grotto will feature the same iconic atmosphere and souvenir mugs as its Disneyland counterpart, it'll be open next year.

I spent a few vacations at the Polynesian when i was much younger. I can still remember that lobby and of course that smell. I always welcome change. Here's hoping it's all for the better.
