Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort was forced to close down several guest areas on Sunday afternoon when a major water leak caused flooding problems in the Resort’s lobby and restaurants.
Captain Cook’s quick-service restaurant was forced to close about 3:00 pm, and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto – the popular tiki bar and lounge-did not open its doors to Guests at its regular 3:00 pm time due to the leak as well. According to Resort Guests, Cast Members kept people away from the restaurant areas, and closed down hallways where water began to seep in.
As Cast Members hurried to get the situation under control, Guests said one of the bathroom areas was closed immediately, as it was completed flooded by the leak.
At this time, the exact location and cause of the water leak have not been disclosed, but we will keep you updated on the status of the Guest areas and restaurants at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort as soon as information becomes available.
