PHOTOS: Work Continues on Porte-Cochère Roof at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
One of the final elements of the refurbishment of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is the porte-cochère roof. It has been under construction in front of the Monorail station for a few weeks now, getting a colorful centerpiece at the end of May.
Corrugated panels have since been added to most of the roof, which we saw from the Monorail this morning.
From the ground, we got a better look at the paneling, which covers all of this side except for a triangular section.
Once completed, the roof will be raised into place on top of concrete columns in front of the Monorail station.
From the other side of the construction site, we can see where paneling is still missing from the roof.
The corrugated panels are for structure, and will be covered with some more themed pieces before completion.
Corrugated panels are also being added to the roof of the Monorail station.
They now cover a little over half of the front section of roof.
The station has been filled with scaffolding for several weeks, but Monorails are still able to move through.
No paneling has been added to the back side of the station yet.
The walkway from the station into the Great Ceremonial House has come together quickly. Most of it has been painted brown and corrugated paneling is complete. Of course, once construction is complete on each structure, the ground will need to be cleaned up.
Meanwhile, the large lawn is walled off behind the Great Ceremonial House.
Building materials sit in view, awaiting use.
