Disney Park and Resort Photo Updates

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Construction Update from May 14th, 2021

Hi everyone!

We were at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort yesterday and I took some photos of the construction of the Great Ceremonial House front entrance (porte-cochère) and the monorail station work. A lot has changed since we last stopped by last. The resort is officially closed through sometime in July, which standard rooms also receiving a “Moana” themed update.

Just as with other Walt Disney World Deluxe resorts, there is a Disney Vacation Club aspect here and so even though the resort is officially closed, parts of it are also open (shopping, recreation, some dining, etc.).

The covering of the monorail platform can be seen ahead.

I am not sure where this section will end up, but it was in the parking lot.

A monorail passes through the station. The platform has been closed since October 2020 for the work.

Last year, Imagineer Zach Riddley said that “Along the Monorail station, bold new wooden screens will be covered with geometric patterns in bright, tropical colors that complete an exciting new composition that will greet you when you arrive.”

Here is a concept art look at what the entrance to Disney’s Polynesian Resort should look like.

Here are more photos from yesterday.

The walkway is coming along too from the monorail station to the main building.

I am looking forward to seeing the completed work!
