Lobby at Disney’s Polynesian Resort to Close in March for Renovation

If you're a fan of the lobby in Disney's Polynesian Resort, it's time to say your goodbyes.

The Polynesian is undergoing renovations ahead of the opening of a Disney Vacation Club section next year. As part of these ongoing renovations, the Wyland Gallery and the Great Ceremonial House have closed, reportedly to make room for expanded dining options.
