We’ve seen cranes in the parking area across from the resort’s porte cochere and monorail platform. Construction equipment is being staged in the lot.

This pedestrian walkway leads to the Great Ceremonial House’s main entrance, which is located below the monorail station. Guests are directed to the left.

The Disney’s Magical Express stop is now outside of Pago Pago. Interestingly, Disney chose to use “DME” rather than the airport shuttle service’s full name.

A canopy, much like those used as cool down areas at temperature screenings, is used to store strollers and ECVs.
