Aerial view of the new roof beams and Monorail station construction at Disney’s Polynesian Resort

It’s time for a construction update over at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. The main entrance of the resort is still a flurry of activity as crews work to update the arrival experience for guests.

In October, Disney removed the original beams that lined the roof of the Great Ceremonial House. Now, they have installed a series of new beams across the roof. The aerial photo below shows the roof with new beams that aren’t quite as dense as the originals.

We can also see the extensive work being done on the resort’s Monorail station. It looks like a significant portion of the original platform has been removed at this stage of the project.

Once complete, Disney’s Polynesian Resort should have an arrival experience that’s a bit more suited for a deluxe resort. The original entrance wasn’t bad by any means, especially the landscaping, but it may have been a bit basic compared to the steep prices.

The concept art below shows Disney’s planned vision for the front of Disney’s Polynesian Resort.

These updates are expected to be completed in 2021.
