PHOTOS: Construction Continues on New Monorail Station at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has recently reopened to guests after a long refurbishment and a Moana-themed room overlay. As the deadline to reopen approached, Disney announced that one of the projects that would not reach completion in time for the opening was the redesigned Monorail station which runs to the hotel. Taking a look at how it stands today, it is clear that there is still a lot of work to be done.

From the left side underneath the Monorail beams, we can see the newly completed porte-cochère, which was completed in time for the reopening.

Some of the painting has been completed on the support beams, as seen here with this brown beam. The foremost beam is still partially pink.

The right side, however, remains unpainted.

Scaffolding covers most of the structure, allowing for access to every level up to the roof.

The covered walkway from the hotel to the Monorail platform is completely enshrouded. The Monorail station remains closed to guests while the work is being completed.

Taking a peek beyond the themed scrim fence surrounding the construction site, we can see the temporary floor of wood panels is mired in the mud and puddles of Florida’s frequent rainstorms. Generators and various construction equipment are parked here, waiting for work to resume.

Guests are redirected around the themed scrim with an unthemed sign.

  1. Great job as usual, especially when spying or peeing over the scrim. Got to love that. Looks like the roof of the walkway bridge is done covered with the standard Polynesian Village red/orange metal roof, which is cool but next time can you shoot the station roof to see if they finished it with the same materials.
