The resort, which opened with Magic Kingdom park in 1971, will return to it’s original name – Disney’ Polynesian Village Resort. Take a look at the resorts retro logo in the photo above.

As part of the re-imagining, the resort will get a new food and beverage experience – Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. This area will be based on the popular Trader Sam’s lounge at the Disneyland Hotel in California.
