Earlier last week, we brought you a first look at the new Skyliner sign for Disney’s Riviera station. The station is expected to open later this year along with the new resort.

The walkway connecting the Skyliner Station to the hotel has safety railings being put into place. We spotted some workers installing the railing.

There’s also some railing being installed over by the pool area. As you can see, there is a ton of greenery in place, as well as some railing running across the front.

These huts don’t appear to have progressed at all since our last update.

The pool slide still has some scaffolding in place, but the rockwork looks near complete and the slide is ready to be unveiled.

On the opposite side, the columns are filled in and look just about complete.

A man was hosing down some of the new columns on the left side of the hotel. You can also see the color difference in the archway here.

On the top floor, these beams were covered in a blue tarp for a while. Some of them have since been uncovered, revealing the finished product.

Here’s a better look at the row of columns that are now uncovered.
