PHOTOS: Additional Roof Support Added as Work Continues on New Monorail Station at Disney’s Polynesian Resort

Just Friday, work started on the roof of the new Monorail station at Disney’s Polynesian Resort as part of the resort’s transformation. The beginning trusses were added to the roof installation and now another truss has been put in place.


There are now three trusses currently lining the upcoming Monorail station.


As more trusses are added, it’s easier to visualize the thatched roof-style that the station will have.


Elsewhere, the concrete pillars leading to the Great Ceremonial House remain under construction.


Another layer of framing has been erected as these pillars will be very tall once completed.


As the pillars at the Monorail station itself are complete, more trusses will be installed on top of each pair across the Monorail track.


Though no additional work has yet been done on the new porte-cochére, the above picture gives a better look at the sets of pillars that will support the new area.


This reimagined entryway at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will feature a high-pitched, open-truss roof covered in a thatched style above the new Monorail station, and construction is swiftly moving along.
