Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Construction Update – August 10, 2021

Hi everyone!

We stopped by Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort on Thursday evening to check out the progress on the front entrance (porte-cochère).

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has been undergoing a transformation since last fall that includes the new Moana themed rooms as well as the front entrance to the Great Ceremonial House and monorail station.

Disney said in a press release, “The resort is also developing a dramatic new porte cochere that will enhance the arrival experience as guests pull up to its Great Ceremonial House. The inviting design features a high-pitched, open-truss roof covered in a thatch style with pops of color. The area’s new open and airy vibe will be complemented by four chandeliers inspired by glass floats, fishing nets and oversized bamboo elements mirroring the chandelier inside the lobby. In addition, the resort’s Monorail station located above the porte cochere is receiving new wooden screens with geometric patterns in tropical colors, adding to the overall ambience of the entrance.”

Here is a look at more of the work being done.

Roof work was taking place.

We will stop back in the next couple of weeks. I look forward to seeing the result when finished!
