After a lengthy refurbishment of the entrance and Monorail station of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Monorail service has finally returned.

Guests can once again reach the Monorail station from inside the Great Ceremonial House.

Before boarding the Monorail, guests must go through a contactless security checkpoint.

A new red-roofed bridge connects the Great Ceremonial House and the station. The entire structure has been rebuilt, including the bridge and station platform.

The new station has red and orange panels lining the outside and letting in a bit of sun.

Monorail Red soon arrived to whisk us away.

The entire Monorail station was rebuilt around the Monorail track, so everything you see is new.

Brown columns support the roof.

Polynesian-inspired lamps hang from the ceiling. Though we didn’t really need their light during this sunny morning, they’ll be helpful at night.

As you can see by the orange fencing at the end, there is still some construction to be completed.

    1. No it doesn’t. The old roof was flat wooden planks and all brown across. The new roof is white and stylized, with orange yellow designs around. The old floor was brown now its cement.

  1. Being a Deluxe Resort… I would have like to seen a bit more detail than just cement and steel… they could have stamped and tinted the cement to give a more rustic feel… and wrapped the columns to add some texture… C’mon… these little things are starting to disappear from the creative end of Disney…

  2. Did they raise the platform? A raised platform could mean the potential for an automated monorail system

    1. It sure looks like the platform is at the same height as the monorail floor. So perhaps no ramp needed for a wheelchair or ECV to roll in or out.

      I thought I was told the way the monorail doors swung open and closed this wouldn’t be possible. Maybe that was untrue or maybe the monorail updates have changed the way the doors work.

      Anyway, it seems like a possible time saver for many guests and cast members if the platform is raised / leveled with the train floor like it seems to be!
