PHOTOS: Colorful Centerpiece Added to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s New Entrance
We check the construction at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort nearly every day. On some days, only subtle changes are noticeable. Other days, big changes happen. Today was an example of the latter. The colorful centerpiece has been added to the resort’s porte-cochère roof!
Trim in shades of red, orange, and gold has been added to the porte-cochère roof.
The porte-cochère roof structure is currently at ground level. Eventually, a crane will lift it into place on the concrete pillars to the left.
This vivid design will be seen as guests approach the Great Ceremonial House, acting as the centerpiece of the new entrance structure.
The concept art shows how the porte-cochère roof will be positioned in front of the Great Ceremonial House.
The other side of the porte-cochère roof has not received decorative trim. It is possible that it may not as it may face the Great Ceremonial House.
Work also continues on the monorail platform.
Pink primer is slowly being covered with brown paint.
When Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort fully reopens in July, cars will once again be able to pull under the porte-cochère. The resort’s main entrance is on the right, directly below the second floor monorail platform bridge.
The roof frame above the monorail station seems complete. Scaffolding is in place to allow construction crews to work while monorail trains whisk below.
