The crossed roof beams are being removed from the Great Ceremonial House at Disney’s Polynesian Resort

The refurbishment of Disney’s Polynesian Resort is underway! Crews have already started removing the crossed roof beams that create the familiar look on top of the Great Ceremonial House.

Several beams have been removed and the long center beam has been shortened each time work progresses. A large crane is in the area to assist with the project.

It’s a bit jarring to see one of the signature looks of Disney’s Polynesian Resort removed. But, the beams may not be gone for good. The concept art released by Disney prior to the refurbishment depicts the beams, albeit fewer, gracing the roof.

So far, we haven’t seen any other significant changes at Disney’s Polynesian Resort besides the beams. The refurbishment will also update the rooms at the resort, adding “details, patterns and textures” from Moana, but Disney hasn’t released any concept art for the rooms at this time.
