PHOTOS: Bridge & Walkway Between New Monorail Station and Great Ceremonial House Take Shape at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Construction has been moving quickly on the new Monorail station at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Roof installation began earlier this month and the walkway connecting the station to the Great Ceremonial House came soon after.

On the opposite side of the station, more crew members were working on the walkway that leads to the Great Ceremonial House.

Of course, the buildings are still closed and windows are still taped over with tarps as the interior refurbishment continues.

We saw Cast Members behind the Great Ceremonial House, where a small section of construction walls has been erected near Pineapple Lanai.

  1. Sad that they removed that enormous strangler fig tree near Pineapple Lanai. We met a nice CM there in Feb/Mar 2021 who talked with us for quite a while about many of the different plantings. I guess it became too overgrown for that area.
