With all crossbeam supports completely removed from the Great Ceremonial House at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, construction on a new, streamlined crossbeam design has now begun. Today, the first two crossbeams were installed.
Visible from the parking lot, the Great Ceremonial House will still have its beloved crossbeam structure, but it will now feature fewer beams, creating a more sophisticated, cleaner design.
The top half of scrim across the closure fence has been removed, likely due to strong expected winds this weekend from Tropical Storm Eta.
Construction is also visible from the pool.
Inside the lobby, the official concept art for the Great Ceremonial House has been framed and put on display by the now-shuttered entrance.
We reported on the concept art in October, with the new entrance and monorail station having a completion date of Summer 2021.
Upstairs, electrical work was seen being done on the ceilings.
The entrance isn’t the only part of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort getting refurbished. Moana-themed rooms will be available when the resort reopens to guests next summer. Are you looking forward to checking out the resort’s new look? Let us know in the comments.
