PHOTOS: More Crossbeams Removed During Refurbishment of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is receiving a makeover, currently focused on the Great Ceremonial House. Yesterday, crossbeams from the iconic roof began to disappear, and today even more are gone.

As seen in concept art for the refurbished resort, the roof will still feature some crossbeams. Disney is aiming for a cleaner design:

The Great Ceremonial House will continue to include the architectural detail of the crossbeams, though fans who look closely will notice fewer beams, creating a more sophisticated, cleaner design.

The monorail station is still operational, but will close temporarily beginning next month. Monorails will still go through the station but will not stop.

There’s a crane parked out front for removing the crossbeams.

In addition to the refreshed Great Ceremonial House, the resort will get Moana-themed rooms before it reopens next summer, though we likely won’t get a look at those for some time.
