Beam removal is progressing from the left side of the structure.
The first two horizontal pieces and the first vertical support have been removed.
Concept art for the refurbishment shows that there will still be a similar crossbeam structure on the reimagined roof. It seems workers are dismantling the current structure entirely instead of using it as a base.
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. Are you excited for the refurbishment of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort? Let us know in the comments.
