Walt Disney World’s Polynesian Village Resort is one of its most popular Resort hotels. This deluxe Walt Disney World Resort hotel is next to Magic Kingdom and offers many different amenities and experiences. One of those experiences used to be the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, which consisted of a grand Polynesian feast with live entertainment provided by talented singers, drummers, and dancers.

Although the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show was a hit with Guests, Disney decided to scrap the show and the show area in order to make room for the upcoming Disney Vacation Club tower, making waves in the opinion of many Disney fans and frequent Guests.

Not only are Guests mourning the loss of the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, but many feel that the concept art for the upcoming building doesn’t fit the theme or the aesthetic of the rest of the tropical Resort. Some Guests think that the Disney Vacation Club tower looks less like an exotic, tropical hideaway and more like a Resort tower you’d find on the shores of Hawaii. In short, it seems to be lacking that one-of-a-kind Disney Resort imagination.
