The collection of beams crosses over the Monorail track, connected to the concrete pillars on either side.

Construction workers were on the platform this morning.

We even saw a Monorail go through the station.

There are two peaks to the structure currently.

The new Monorail station will be more fully enclosed more-so than the old one.

Meanwhile, the pillars that will support the resort’s new porte-cochère have been set in concrete.

These are exciting developments! I’ve been following the Polynesian portico construction progress online and was getting nervous as it was starting to seem a little stagnant. It’s cool to see more visible progress. Fingers crossed that the new monorail station will be operational by the time of my family’s upcoming visit at the end of August!

And just like that what they are doing physically no longer matches the concept art. They are installing peaks over the monorail tracks. In the concept art the building is flat.

Nevermind. Looking closer at the concept art, you can see it.
